    I decided to post on this thread for others to read, but also for myself to know! I started taking duromine about halfway through 2010 and lost about 6 kilos all up and kept it off. I probably lost about 10 but kept 6 off which was great. I then got a bit lazy again and have almost put it all on. I know for a fact it's because I have been eating crappy and not exercising. I have finally decided enough is enough. I weigh about 78 kilos but didn't want to weigh myself at the start and I'm not going to. I was obsessed with seeing how much weight I lost everyday and now that's not the way I'm going to look at it. I would ultimately like to get to low 60s so fingers crossed! I'm now on day 2. Day 1 was ok, I ate no breakfast but unfortunately there was a morning tea and I ate 2 small pieces of cake (completely regretted it). Major dry mouth which I had last time but I find it ok because I drink loads of water, I'm a big water drinker anyway so it's fine! I ate sushi for lunch and terryaki tofu for dinner with rice, probably far too much white rice, I usually only eat brown aswell but it was an easy meal. (I don't usually eat Jap twice in one day!) I couldn't get to sleep well and I was definitely restless throughout the night. I'm not a very good sleeper as it is, so this is pretty bad but I understand it's the pills. I'm now on day 2 and felt quite sick this morning so I only drank water and had a cup of tea to fill me up. By 1pm I felt really sick and needed to go get some lunch but didn't feel like anything! I bought some strawberries(had about 5), bananas(2 smallish ones) a green apple (had half) and an orange (had half) and made it into a fruit salad. It was the perfect thing for me to eat, I find on duromine I actually feel loads better when I eat, I feel like it's what helps you loose weight in a sense because your body has something to start burning up. I really really don't want to not eat the whole time and ruin my metabolism even more! So this time it's about changing my habits rather than just losing weight quickly. One thing is sometimes I feel soooo tired, I'm worried I'm not going to have the energy to go for a workout or anything. I have pilates booked in for tomorrow (I started last week doing one day a week) going to get some walks in and also some swimming. I have a 20 minute zumba workout dvd at home which I like doing because it's quite quick but you can put in as much or as little as you want. Everyday I'll change it up as I get bored easily. I'm also a smoker and find I smoke HEAPS on duromine, much like if I was actually on speed. I shall keep this updated so let me know your stories too 

    It's pretty crazy hey, makes you smoke so much! I'm down to 74kg now and to be honest need to exercise more. The eating is ok, I use my fitness pal app to track my calories but yeah definitely need to exercise more to get it off!

    Hello Dear! Welcome back on this complicated weight loss path! I know it's quite difficult to change some habits in you, but I think this time you started great and your results would be much better than last time. I wish you to move on and lose weight stably.
