    Day 1 starting weigh 76kg, height 157
    BMI 30

    This is my fourth time using duromine, mum of 5, live a fairly active life

    After my fifth child I had almost reached my goal weight, I had gone down to 65 kilos and was happy with what I saw in the mirror. I managed to lose all my pregnancy weight and maintained it for 6 months through diet and exercise

    THEN 6 months ago I moved to the country, no gym and weekly food shops

    I noticed fairly quickly that I was putting on a kilo a week, I could not understand why, and put it down to having no gym, I started doing my squats and weights but still had no cardio. I attempted running, but I was not born to be a runner and with 5 kids is hard to get out, so gave up on that idea

    For the past 8 weeks I have got to the stage of waking up and not liking what I see, this then sets me off for a miserable day, wearing tracky dacks and tshirts, not very flattering. I mask my pain with makeup and although people say I look good and hubby says I'm not fat, I feel it.

    Sorry for the long introduction

    I went to the new local GP and asked for duromine, explaining that if I lost the weight I could maintain it like I dd before, he would not give it me, due to me having a store 8 years earlier (had to learn to walk and talk all over again) so yes I am a strong and determined person and you wouldn't know now to look at me. Instead he referred me to a dietician. This did not go down well with me as I have done, the dieticans, shakes, magic pills, lite n easy etc and the only thing that worked was duromine.

    I don't think I eat my much and if anything I undefeated, so I made a conscious effort to eat more, small and regularly and yes yet another fad weight loss diet, the recipes were nice, but I lost zero

    I then purchased a decent cross trainer and do at least 40 mins a day and 50 squats

    After a month, still lost nothing but at least my weight had stopped climbing and ive maintained it at 76kg

    At the beginning of all this I cut out all soft drinks, have at least 3 liters of water a day and do a food diary so I am honest about what I eat.

    Again I went back to my new GP and saw a different Dr there, again he would not prescribe it to me due to my store, which I am sick of being reminded of and I just want to move on, instead he referred me to a physician who deals with clinical nutrition

    I have made an appointment and seeing her in 4 weeks time, however I am so miserable about my weight, summer is coming and my family from overseas are visiting at Xmas

    Today whilst shopping with my daughter near where I used to live I again saw myself in the shop window and I felt so fat and just wanted to cry, I think my husband is sick of me going on with myself. So I decided to go and see my old dr who had prescribed it in the past, I was gutted when I was told he is no longer there

    So this is where the 1st day of the rest of my new me starts, I as a lovely GP, said I wanted duromine, she said yes immediately, advise that she would give me a repeat as one month won't do it, said she would give me the 40 and to go back when I've finished the course, I nearly fell off my chair, finally someone that listed to me

    I made the mistake of taking one at 4pm, thus me being still wide awake at 3.30 in the morning, so will defo take my next one in the morning

    I am still going to see the specialist as she au be able to explain why even though I don't sit down and rest, who does with 5. And the fact that the rest of my family are slim, they eat more than me, why I can't lose the weight

    Thanks for reading and feel free to post any comments

    Hopefully I will be a le to say in 8 weeks I like what I se and I feel good when I look in the mirror, apart from the rolls of excess skin from having 5 babies, but I working on the tummy tuck

    I know I might sound vain, and some may think 76kg is not that heavy, but for me and because I am small, so it does feel a lot, and I do feel fat/large

    Thanks

    Day 2
    Weight 74.4 kg

    Surprisingly managed to get through the day on 1 hour of sleep, will defo not be so excited about getting my duromine that I took the tablet at 4pm, big mistake

    Day 2 gone really well, can't believe I have lost just over a kilo, think this has something to do with how hard I have been working and exercising the last four weeks, but my weight just wasn't budging

    Not felt like eating today so have had to force myself, ended up with yoghurt for breakfast, handful of peanuts for snack, 1/2 piece of lean bacon for tea and yoghurt for supper, need to start eating small well balanced meals, small but often.

    Think I have drank about 6 liters of water today, so if the duromine doesn't keep me awake, going to the loo all night will lol.

    Looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow, I am already feeling much happier with myself and for the first time in ages I didn't detest what I saw in the mirror, and now know I have got the help I needed so I can maintain it in the future
