    Hi everyone,

    I have been reading through the forums on here and it has been very interesting to read the different results and reactions of people who are taking Duromine.

    I started taking 30mg on Friday and it is now Monday. I am 168cm tall and when my doctor weighed me on Thursday I was horrified to see the scales say 105.9 kgs(with light clothing on).

    I weighed myself this morning and was very shocked to see the scales say 98.7kgs, which means I have lost 7.2 kilos in less than a week.

    I have not had too many adverse reactions to the drug. I felt a bit high on the first day and was very happy and talkative. I have experienced some stomach cramps. But I haven't had anything severe like I have read on some forums.

    The reason I have started taking Duromine is because I have a hip and leg injury which has prevented me from doing alot of exercises. I currently see a pilates rehab specialist and he has helped me improve so much. I was on antidepressants up until 3 weeks ago and I quit smoking over two months ago. I also have food intolerances and stick to a low FODMAP diet. I have been struggling to lose weight and was concerned that the more I put on the more pain and the longer it would take recovering from my injuries. Quitting smoking has had a huge impact on my appetite. I would eat healthy main meals and try to stick to healthy snacks, but I found I was just hungry all the time and had unbelievable sugar cravings.

    In the past few days. I have ensured that I eat healthy food and snacks and have been drinking lots of water including greentea. I have also been taking a natural fibre product called motion potion which has helped keep my system regular.

    I'm sure that the weightloss will slow down and perhaps there was a discrepancy between the doctors scales and mine but, so far I am happy, and looking forward to my healthier lifestyle and eating habits.
    I have a crosstrainer being delivered tomorrow, so I am hoping that there is no looking back now and that my future is a healthy one.

    I look forward to checking in on everyone and seeing their progress.

    Well done on your success. I am on the diet pill for the same reason - to lose weight, and because health problems prevent me from doing too much exercise... Also, we started on the same day =D. One thing to bear in mind with these pills - is you want to ensure you are still eating a healthy amount of food. A lot of people tend to forget to eat, or eat very little. This causes them to basically "starve" themselves, when this happens - not only does the body go into a state where it stores all fats and sugars, but it is also very hard to maintain when you get hunger pains back (after the pill) and therefore the weight will go straight back on very quick. Also - I reckon as well as using the scales, perhaps try measuring yourself ... if you're planning on exercising more than you were, it can be a more accurate way. This is because (as you probably know) muscle weighs more than fat and can sometimes mean that your weight doesn't change tooo much.

    It's good you are not getting any side effects ... mine have been horrible. Lol - but I'm still going with it. I'm sure they will wear off soon as my body grows a tolerance to it.

    I have decided not to weigh myself until the 2 week period because I don't want to feel disheartened if I do not lose weight. My goal is to lose 4-5kg's this month, I am 171cm tall and 87kg's. If I can lose that much in a month, the doctor will prescribe it to me for another month hopefully.

    Good luck with your weight loss, keep us posted. It's nice to see good stories.
    :)

    Hi there, I have just started. Today is my 5th day. So far, I have lost 3kg - but I am a tad blocked up (over a week now), so I'm hoping to add another kg onto that once things start moving. I am calorie counting, between 1200-1500 a day is what my GP & calorie counting app have suggested. I don't hav a gym with a creche in my area but I had a PT write me a program I could do at home....so exercise & diet changes which I'm hoping will be permanent. Starting weight-83kg, current weight-80kg. My aim is 70 by end Jan....I feel energized & happy, can concentrate more & I have been sleeping fine (except last night I slept badly but I think that had little to do duromine). I never thought I would take duromine, but I tired of being the fattest person everywhere I go & Tired of feeling self conscious, I have just got to make changes now for my emotional wellbeing as well as my physical health! I am not unrealistic, I know if I don't make healthy post duromine choices I'll stack it back on, but pre duromine I have gone from 95kg to 83kg over 8months, maintained that weight for 12 so I'm hoping what I have learnt over that 20months is enough to maintain my post duro weight! Day 1 I felt spaced & weird, quiet & fidgety, but day 2 I just felt great & have ever since. I am eating bfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner, I was suggested to eat 6 meals but I just can't manage it. I feel hungry at meal times but it is not uncontrollable, I dnt pig out & I dnt make bad choices. I was at a point where I was ready to give up, after 12 months at the same weight watching everyone around me eat rubbish, I plan to get to 70kg and if I do, I'll be stoked! I notice people dnt comment much after they finish their script, wud b interesting to hear from someone who had long term success following their duro kick start! Sorry if this is a bit long!! I enjoy reading everyones posts & wish everyone health & happiness!
