I am 36 5'1 and weight 180. In January after recovering from a broken leg, I weight 210. I lost the 30 lbs gained from inactivity by diet and exercise, but now I am at a stand still. I started this medicine this morning. I have a ton of energy, only side effect, I am hot (temperature wise LOL). Will post update in two weeks!
