    Day 1. 38yrs old. 14 kg over ideal weight.
    Decided to try to kick-start my weight loss after having 2 kids in 4 years. I used to be 58kg--running 10Ks--now I'm overweight, tired, working full time and taking care of my husband and 2 kids. Life has got in the way. I hoping to achieve quicker results to help motivate me more. My diet isn't too bad but my exercise is almost none (unless you count running after 2 little boys and pushing a pram to and from the grocery store).

    Took my first pill at 6 AM. Now 8:30 AM and feeling energetic. Even thinking of taking the boys down for a swim since its a holiday where I live and we are all home from nursery and work.

    Will try to hold off on first weigh in until Day 7.

    Hi 2boysmama, I am completely in the same boat as you. i am also a mother of two boys. My first born is three years old and my second born is one year old. Between taking car of the kids and my husband i never have time for myself which makes concentrating on weight loss more challenging. Today is my second day on Duromine. My first day was challenging as i experienced some of the side effects.

    I am hopeful that i will have a breakthrough.

    @2boysmama - welcome to the forums!

    Hope your day went well :). Did you have any insomnia last night?

    No insomnia but restless sleep. Woke up a couple times throughout the night. The strangest thing is after the first night, I woke up with really sore leg muscles--like I'd been tensing them all night or something. This is now the end of Day 3 for me and legs are still quite sore.

    I definitely enjoyed the burst of energy! Got some much done around the house, hosted a pool party and still felt energetic from 6:30am to 9pm. I did have some dry mouth and I felt very thirsty and sweaty. Other than that, not too bad. I've noticed decreased appetite but still felt the urge to eat a little something at lunch and dinner.

    What side effects have you experienced?

    @2boysmama - you wouldn't believe it but I woke up this morning feeling like my calf muscles had been cramping! They are quite sore and even tender to touch :eek:

    I haven't done any type of strenuous work out since getting back 2 days ago from our trip, so I know its not muscle soreness from exercise. I am going to have an epsom salt bath tonight and see if that relieves the tightness. Oh and take my magnesium tablet - which I haven't done for over a week!
