    Hi Everyone

    I'm only on day 2 of my Duromine regimen, but I'm already feeling the effects of not obsessing about food. It's so nice not to look at food as the enemy. I've been reading about the dramatic weight loss stories on this forum and it gives me hope that maybe it can work for me. At the moment I'm 107 kgs with my ideal weight being 77 kg. Right now, that's a complete fantasy. I'd be ecstatic just getting down to 100kg.

    My question is for those who have lost heaps of weight. After you stop taking the pills (I'm assuming you do eventually?), does the weight come back? I'm so petrified of maybe getting slim and then putting it all back on again.

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    Hi Audra, I am only in week three myself but I did read a post on here by a member named Vee which I found very comforting regarding gaining the weight mail.

    I'm scared of putting the weight back on too. But if you continue to eat as you were whilst on duramine and perhaps up your exercise. Also work on your willpower and do not forget how hard it was to lose the weight and that horrible feeling of being overweight. Maybe put a pic of yourself at your heaviest in the kitchen somewhere to help keep you in check. Also, if you have a bad food day just make up for it the next day. It's much easier to lose a kilo or two that have crept on, rather than 20, 30 or 40 kgs. Once down to your goal weight it is very important to keep track on the scales.

    I think the answer is different for us all ,but I can only say that for most us , we do not want to put back the weight we have lost ,as it happens time and time again, this time you need to just make a choice, that your fat is not going to beat you this time round, and work on having a good head space as much as possible, as we al have negative days, but it is about using the tools you are given on this forum and the D ,that helps you sift through all your weak points on your past journeys. You need to be brutally honest with yourself ,this time Audra Blue, and know that it is not D, or oUr views ,or our challenges and goals that will KEEP you thin, when you leave, and are at goal weight , it is YOU that will keep you thin, and at goal weight and maintain it.we all slip up, it is an ongoing battle but one must get to a place ,and know that you will never just give up again and let it go back to what you were ,EVER again .. No one said it would be easy but only You can make this work for you for the rest of your life, there is more to this way of eating and exercise, it is not just the pill and a diet, but your mind and emotions that you need to work on and fight daily while losing your fat.. All the best to you .. you can do it, just make that change in your head and you set to go... Try to avoid the negative and failure in your head, before you have really started , baby steps girl !!! slow, steady ,maintain Balance, in your life and your body, as much as possible, this is my challenge to find Balance, and each week I get closer, I have had bad weeks and gr8 weeks, but each week is a success as my mind is getting stronger and i am coming to grips with myself ,the enemy, not food, not fat, but me and my mind,and my daily living, once we focuss on the cause of our weight issues, we overcome ALL other areas easier.. keep going .believe you can that's the key , :)

    Hi Leigh

    Thank you for your inspiring words. You're absolutely right about making choices for myself. I'm hoping that by the time I'm ready to go off the pills, I'll have a completely different mind set and won't ever let myself get big again.

    feel the same as you ;), we can do this :),we just need to be brave and fight it ,and give ourselves a chance instead of always fighting against it . I always have so much advice for others but can never seem to consistently apply to my life :(,and now I am trying my utmost to do so, because I am worth it ,right ? and so are you !! :D

    I put all the weight back on even though I followed the exact same active and healthy lifestyle and am now having to go back on Duromine as it is the only way I can keep the weight off.

    ElleBelle, it is not the "active healthy "lifestyle we struggle with but "portion control and right food choices hun !! if it was easy as a healthy active lifestyle, nobody would be fat, lol .... this time round think about your lifestyle that got you back on D, and what you will do differently when you go off of it again so that it can become a "natural lifestyle" and not one you need to depend on because of D, that is what I am trying to come to terms with, while I am on D, TO BE MORE AWARE of MY mistakes, MY bad habits, MY attitude, towards making this a LIFE LONG JOURNEY and not just a temporary quick fix solution..hope that makes sense to you , hoping you will be able to lose all your weight again, hun and keep it off this time around, we know how hard it is , most of us have been there .done that too .... keep trying ,practice makes perfect ..:)
