My name is Jenny M, I am from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and I first started with Dr. Lipman before my first child in 2008. My weight went from 247 pounds to 150. I felt great. I thought I had “cured” my weight problems. In fact after my first baby I only gained 15 lbs and was quick to lose it. Then life’s pressure caught up with me. My mother’s health was failing and I had to return to teaching school due to my husband losing his job. After my 45th birthday and my mother’s death, I found myself back to my fat self. Once again, I was huge. I couldn’t keep up with my children and I was facing health problems because of my weight. My only means of support came from eating, especially in the evening when I had to grade papers until midnight. Dr. Lipman prescribed Qsymia which reduced my cravings and horrendous need for carbs. I feel now, at 120 pounds, that I have added years to my life. I know my children are proud of me, no longer embarrassed by their fat mother. I am now on maintenance with Dr. Lipman and I know I will never gain it back.
