    Hi all!

    Thought I'd better introduce myself properly after lurking around the last few days :cool: I'm Lizzie, and today was day 5 for me.

    So far, so good, I'm over the sleeplessness and spaced-out feelings. Only weird side effect I have been getting is red blotches on my cheeks?!?! Anyone else get this??? :oops:

    So I've tried duromine before, but I didn't keep on it consistently. This time I'm determined to give it my all.

    So as for my background, I generally haven't had too much trouble keeping my weight under control, but after quitting smoking last year my apetite has gone completely out of control :( I just haven't been able to stop myself from eating, literally just clearing out the cupboards! I shudder to think of the amount of calories I've been pouring down my throat... Probably twice or three times what I need :oops:

    It's nice to not have that out of control feeling around food for the last few days. I can actually look at it and say no!

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing everyone's stories, and can't wait to get my first official weigh in on Thurs:) You can expect to see me around a bit, I need all the help I can get :D

    Xx Lizzie

    Hi Lizzie,
    Thanks for sharing you story. I'm going to the dr on Friday, hoping I'll get duromine and can start next Monday. I'm 82kg and would like to loose 15-20 kg (so similar to you.) like you, I'll be on this forum a lot, hoping to have support during my journey. I'll be stalking you ( he he). I hope you have a big surprise on Thurs at you weigh in...
    Do you mind if I ask, what dosage are you on?
    Best of luck

    Hi Skinny2B, thanks for the support, and yes, our weight loss goals are very similar :) Hopefully we can help each other out over the next few weeks/ months! So yeah, you can stalk me and I'll stalk you haha ;) Oh and I'm on the 30mg, it is pretty strong, but it works for me...

    And thanks Kate, I'll be doing my best!!

    Hi Ladies,thank you for the warm welcome.So far have found it more exciting than anything else,I have zero side effects,except for no appetite and reduced tummy size(smile),I get full from small portions,healthy food is suddenly soo sexy,water can't get enough of. The extra energy is great,use it to play with my son and rock him to sleep.
    Let us know how it goes with your weigh in,fingers crossed........

    Thanks for all the love ladies!! :D:D

    Best of luck today Skinny2B, hope it all goes well for you!

    And Sunnydays, I wish!!! If only we could lose as much as the first week every week!! This weight loss thing would be a snap haha!

    I'm with you when it comes to the daily weigh ins... I am way too impatient to wait all week, but they do say it's better to do it weekly o_O You don't want to be discouraged and give up, that's for sure!! I need my stalkers :p

    I tend to find though that it helps me to weigh in daily, keeps me honest, so to speak. If I'm starting to gain a bit I know it's time to take action, lower my calories a bit, or add a bit more exercise... Anyway you're doing awesome so far, totes jealous you're in the 70s :oops:

    Take care all, hope to see *less* of you soon! Xx Lizzie

    So, just back from the Dr. She took a little convincing and only gave me a months worth :confused: But it is the 30mg. A month wouldn't be a problem except I live on a remote farm 400kms away and wasn't planning on coming back to the city for a couple of months. But I'm being positive! I'll start tomorrow and see how much I can loose with what I have. Hopefully I'll be able to maintain that lose (or even loose a little more..;)) until I'm back to get another script.
    I was planning on using My Fitness Pal to keep a track of calories and try to eat around 1200. Also jogging 3-4 times a week. I'm interested to know what your tricks, programs are.... If your happy to share.
    I hope you all have a great & healthy weekend!

    Hi Skinny2B, great to hear you're finally joining us :D

    I think it's normal to get one month at a time, they want to check your blood pressure, make sure you're not having any adverse effects. But 400km!!!! Where on earth do you live??? :D:D:D

    As for my program, we'll I've been a bit unwell this week with the flu, so I haven't got any exercise done unfortunately... I try and stick around the 1000 calorie mark, sometimes a little more, sometimes less. I just go with how I feel mainly. But that's without exercise, so I reckon your plan sounds good :)

    How are you going so far? Any side effects?? I think it's pretty normal to feel a bit weird for the first few days, by about Day 5 I was fine ;)

    Best of luck, and keep us posted!!

    Xx Lizzie

    Thanks Lizzie,
    Day two... I felt pretty good yesterday, a bit spacey but it was quite a nice feeling (he he). Didn't sleep much, but still feeling good today. I'm thinking I'll take it everyday for the first week and give my system a big jump start, and then I might take it every second day to push it out til I get to the Dr again.... But I'll see how I go.
    I'm already feeling like my clothes fit better, he he... Can't wait for weigh in next Sat!
    Hope you're feeling better Lizzie... Having a cold sucks!
