    I have been on Duromine for four days now. I am extremely overweight and I have gor a long journey ahead of me. It gets discouraging if i see how much weight I have to lose. Obesity is in my family and I would like to overcome this. I hope this works!

    Hi @Rissa1430 and welcome to the forums!

    You've got this!

    It might help to post a daily thread if your up to it? It can help to keep you accountable :)

    If you haven't already look at getting either an app like "my fitness pal" or "lose it" where you can monitor your caloric intake. Make sure you even keep track of what your drinking too. It really helped me be able to have a good look what I was consuming not only in calories, but in salts, fats, carbs and proteins.

    Are you doing any exercise hun?

    Hi! I do have an app with which I calculate my daily intakes. I don’t get alot of exercise. I had a bad fall a few years back and injured my knee pretty badly. I’ve since had a few surgeries. My orthopedic specialist told me in no uncertain terms no walking distances, no jogging. I ahve to look into alternative things I can do.

    @Rissa1430 - it sounds as though you are prepared then :)

    I am sorry about your surgeries - that would have been darn hard. Maybe do a look on the web - "you tube" have a lot of great free videos, that you can search and hopefully find something that will suit.

    I will have a look later and post with what I come up with :)

    Hi Rissa. Welcome on board!

    We all start somewhere. Sometimes we wish things happened a lot sooner, so that there was a whole lot less to do to get to our goal. Things happen at the right time and when we are ready to embrace change! You may feel disgruntled at your current weight, but it is going to feel so good when it all starts melting away.

    I definitely agree with Rava on using this forum as a way to keep yourself motivated and accountable. I personally aim for once a week, after my weekly check in with my doctor. Reveal the good, bad and the ugly, then re evaluate and get going again!

    In terms of exercise, its quite difficult when you have had knee surgeries. While I am no doctor or allied health professional, I do assist injured people with their insurance claims. A lot of people who need rehab after surgery will get involved in Pilates, Hydrotherapy, and a little bit of hands on physiotherapy, to learn how to strap the knee well. They then are able to graduate on to exercise physiology and get some rehab in the gym. I would highly recommend the Pilates and the Hydrotherapy. Pilates will strengthen your entire body without putting pressure on your body, and Hydrotherapy will allow you to do some really great cardio, with little to no impact on your knee.

    I recommend looking at your options as soon as possible, as it seems like the general consensus is that the weight comes off a lot faster and easier in the beginning of your Duromine use.

    One thing I like to remind fellow food fighters on a local Facebook page dedicated to those on Duromine, is that Duromine is great! But it is no magic pill. You can lose weight on it without the exercise, but this is a fantastic time for someone on Duromine to make lifestyle changes immediately. You have this time where you are eating less, feeling more energetic, and having less cravings, to make a great impact on your life from this day on!

    Best of luck with your journey. I hope to read about your progress :)
