    Hi Everyone,

    Im a 23 year old Female in Australia. Throughout the past 6 years my weight has fluctuated so much. In June 2012 I was at a healthy weight of 70kg. August comes along and i find out im expecting :).. so I think to myself I have to do all the right things to keep at a stable weight so that i dont have too much excess weight at the end of it. May 2013 just before i gave birth to my beautiful son, I was 93kg :( I was depressed but determined that once this baby was out, Id get right back into healthy eating & exercising and get back to what i was. Well that didnt happen.. Im still 90kg at the moment & i just feel so uncomfortable and yuck. I still hide my body from my partner because im so embarrassed & self concious.. We have been together 18 months now and i still wont get dressed infront of him.

    Ive tried to eat healthy, but the bad food just gets the better of me. And being a stay at home mum, Im constantly eating. So i spoke to my dr yesterday about Duromine & he was happy to prescribe me the 30mg but has told me that he is only allowing me to 1 course of it. So Im hoping that in this time i can shed as many kilos as possible. Ive taken my first tablet today and i am feeling good. So fingers crossed for success :)

    Hi Ibv,

    Thankyou :) Yes i have been exercising but only at home. I got on YouTube and watched some videos on losing belly fat and some others on toning up your legs etc and they were great. So I've got a few in my head and i try to do them daily. My first week was pretty good. I think i only felt a bit sick in the tummy once. But other then that I've felt fine. I take it at 6:30am every morning so that way it doesnt affect my sleep of a night. I wish you all the best of luck with your weight loss :)

    Hi Aussie 23, I completely understand your story : ) having been with my partner for 12 years now and having four beautiful babies close together my body is not beautiful and I hate letting my partner see me naked. This I hope to change : ) I live in Tropical North Queensland with beautiful people everywhere. I want to be that Beautiful girl I once was! Here's to us mums. Good Luck!
