    Today is the four week mark , and I'm doing o.k. off to the doctor's for my blood pressure and the deadly weigh in :/
    I know I have lost 6.5kgs, but hoping for more. So the side affects I've had are .... dry mouth some days really bad others ok (thought it was getting better but yesterday was a killer for about 2hrs ) , constipation , really bad had to take laxatives and I'm on benefibre now. And some days really hungry feeling. Positives are sleeping better than I ever have , heap of energy (walking 6ks a day) drinking heaps of water , can't even look at a can of drink lol and lossing weight. Was thinking on going on three 40g but not sure if it will change my sleeping pattern, but would love to get rid of this hungry feeling . It could be my stomach just trying to play games lol. Well I better get ready and put on my light clothes :)

    Ok been to the doctors and I've lost 7kg , would of liked more but I'll take it. She has put me up to 40g
    as I should not feel hungry . Fingers cross it does not give me more symptoms or keep me up at night.

    4Th day and yesterday only had the tight jaw for about an hour , so I chewed gym. So happy I went up to the 40g
    I'm more active and on the 30g had no sex drive, well that's back again. Deff not as hungry and dry mouth is getting better each day. Sleeping like a baby , prob just going to bed a little latter but I'm on holidays so that could be why. Constipation is still a prob trying every think there is , but still only go 1 every three days. Recommend going to the higher dose if u still are hungry :) good luck

    Heard a good saying "it takes 4 weeks for u to notice , it takes 8 weeks
    for your friends and family to notice and 12 weeks for the world
    to notice.
    So don't give up guys :)

    5 weeks today :) and I'm handling real well. Not Moody at all enjoying cleaning and getting the job finished before I run out of steam lol.
    Cleaned the kids shower or should a say scrubbed it , for an hour then went and did mine. Constipation still a problem
    And don't want to weigh tonight because of that :) but I will force myself. Getting folds in my stomach now , and I can't stop looking at it.
    Sex drive is up even tho I have a high one a ready :) and my sleeping is good. Getting to the gym 5 to 6 times a week ,
    But my knee is starting a play up so I'm hopping its not something that's going to hold me back. Well I'll blog on again
    After my weigh in , wish me luck :))

    Hi guys thanks for the support , I don't think there is any rule for the eating part. I have read people do calorie
    Counting and some just eat what they want. But make sure u keep up ur fiber any way u can and drink as much as you can. I read have a glass
    Of milk with ur pill and that helped me. I don't want greasy food the thought puts me off. Don't freak out with the side affects they do get better
    Take ur pill as early as u can, I take mine at 5 to 5.30 am then u won't be awake all night. I keep my water
    And pills by my bed so I have it and go back to sleep :) try and exercise it will help with the sleeping too. My house has never been cleaner
    Lol. Oh try not to weigh ur self every day, it will be hard but ur weight still goes up and down. Try every
    Third day. If I think of any more ill let u know. Just think skinny :)

    Morning I'm just about to go to th gym , I'm very lucky to have my husband support he has lost 50kgs, no not duramine
    but doing it himself. Went for a poo yesterday and I lost 1inch around my waste and a inch on my tummy. Spoke to someone else and got some good tips. Found great laxatives not those chocolate ones they are craps. Now I'm having two kiwi fruit first thing
    But still taking my fiber stuff. Going to buy some flax seeds well. I am so noticing my weight loss, went pass a shop window and could not
    Believe it was me, I had to walk pass again. It does make u stand tall and feel more sexy :) still a llong way to go
    But I'm so happy to be taking this journey.

    Hiya,

    What fibre products are you taking. Awesome on weightloss. I hope to start on Thursday - if the doctor gives me the pills, which im sure he will I love my doctor. What are you eating for meals etc?

    Anymore info would be great. Im a little scared regarding the constipation as im prone to being constipated :(

    Again, AWESOME work you should be proud of yourself. Im hoping for good success.

    Hi, I'm a newbie to duromine. Started it on Thursday, and must
    Say I am not hungry at all, except first thing in the morning. But
    Half an hour after the capsule the hunger subsides. My question
    Is, should I be forcing myself to eat. I have lost 4.7 kgs in 4 days.
    And in that time had 1 egg, chicken salad last night, and a piece of
    Steak the night before. Honestly not hungry at all, but very thirsty.
    Drinking at least 3 ltrs a day. Pretty much just 1 protein every night.
    Just worried about the lack of nutrition in my diet. But honestly I am
    Finding it hard to eat.

    Yes I think u need to eat, even 6 small meals. You will not get the energy as there is nothing to burn after awhile.
    This only has to be fruit for ur small snakes and allbrain/toast for breakfast and grilled chicken and salad for dinner.
    I have read ppl getting dizzy from not eating. Hope this helps :)
