Hello I've been reading these forums since last week, and they are highly motivating! It made me want to start my own little journal so I could keep track of what was happening and have some place to come where I knew others were on the same journey. So here I am; Female: 47 years Height: 170cm Starting Weight: 89kg Goal Weight: 75kg and under. I actually started Duromine 30mg on my 47th birthday last Saturday. I can't say what actually caused me to have an epiphany but I did and realised that I had put my weight gain down to circumstances, events and medical issues. I realised I didn't take any responsibility for my actions. I posted on my blog here yesterday, an entry that I had wrote last week before joining and starting "D" and it actually makes me cringe when reading it now as I see how easy it was for me to place and direct blame for my weight issues whilst not really accepting any type of responsibility. So, I am keeping it up as a reminder for myself to move forward and to keep moving onwards.
