    Hi guys

    My name is Danielle, I am 25 years old from Perth.

    I was taking duromine for a little while late last year, but I wasn't consistent with taking the tablets and following a meal plan so I went off it completely. I am going to Europe for 2 months on the 8th of September to celebrate my graduation from my double degree at university,and I would love to be able to feel beautiful, confident and not just sit on the beach fully clothed (as I usually do).

    Height- 177cm
    Weight on Monday- 85.6kgs
    Goal Weight by holiday- 72kg
    Goal Weight long term- 68kg

    One of the reasons I stopped taking it last time was that I would occasionally get the most debilitating migraines. I hope that doesn't happen again!

    Can anyone who has had good weight loss results please advise what they eat/drink in a normal day?

    Here goes nothing!

    Hi Daniela, I was on the 30mg for 2 months, and had all sorts of bad side effects, including migraines. I switched to the 15mg, and it is really going great, so if your migraines flare up again that is something you may consider - also water helps a lot.

    My starting weight was 95kg
    Current weight 82kg
    Goal weight 65kg (still have a long way to go..........):confused:

    Normally I have a cup of coffee in the morning with milk and sugar, breakfast eggs (boiled or scrambled) with low GI 1 slice toast and cottage cheese and tomatoes.

    Lunch I am bad, and often skip, or have a salad (tuna, leftover meat or just neat), sometimes a sandwich (I do not think that is too good thougho_O)

    Dinner is whatever the family is having, just try to keep the portions smaller.

    Drinking diet soda now and then, lots of water and a glass of red wine in the evening - I water it down with ice, so then I get to have 2! Half with ice and another half with ice:D

    Not sure if I am doing it right, I am sure there is lots of room for improvement, but \I know when I started I also wanted to know what the other ladies were eating.

    Good luck!!!!!
