    Hi all! I just thought I'd share my experience and get and give some tips. :)

    I'm a 20 year old female I am 163 cms tall. I weigh 124 kgs . My long term goal weight is 85 kg. My short term goal weight (the 6 months I'll be on 40mg duromine) is 99kg. 25 kgs. I started this morning. I woke up at 5.00, starving mind you. (Which happens occasionally for me)Took the pill at 5.05am and began getting ready for work.. by 5.45 the hunger was still there I went to work and had 1/4 of a cup of museli and about 4 tbs of low fat strawberry yogurt. It didn't feel like it hit the spot. ... I ignored the sensation of hunger as I felt like that should have been enough to carry me over till lunch. I had a about 300 mils of water and that was the 1st time I felt the pill kick in. I had a buRst of energy.. I went non stop for 5 hrs( I usually last 5 mins lol! ) I went for lunch at 12pm and had some leftover tuna bake from last night. Usually I'd eat about 5 cups roughly and still have room for 5 more. I literally had one cup (roughly) and could not for the life of me fit in anything else. I was stoked with this result, on day one. For dinner I had steamed cauliflower and broccoli florets and 3 vita wheat lunch slice biscuits with tuna. All up today I dramk 5 liters of water. & I had buckets of energy up until about quarter to 8pm. I am in bed at this time and will update you all on how I sleep :) I have read the first day is the worst, in that case - bring this adventure on!!!

    Hello Skinnynic and good luck! Seems you have a long path to go, so you have to be strong.
    Wow! 5 liters you're a hero! Normally I couldn't drink more than 2.
    I hope you'll sleep well at night and wish your energy was the same as the first day!

    xoxo ;)

    This morning I have woken up at 4am because my partners alarm went off. I usually sleep right through it untill 5, but I woke up feeling good so I am running an hour early! :) last night I fell asleep at around 9.30 and woke just after 1am, couldn't get back to sleep until around 2.30am and woke up again at 4. I feel like I have had enpugh sleep. So I'm happy with that.

    Bring on Wednesday, day two!

    Question: am I able to have pain killers I.e panadol whilst taking duromine? In case I get a headache etc.

    Normally, painkillers are ok. Make sure you take the one that relieves a headache not just any kind of pain.

    Thanks heaps. :)


    Day 2. Feeling great. No mood changes or anything like that - tones of energy, still. Iv been working so hard my feet are sore but that's a small price to pay even just for the extra energy! Looking forward to day three!! I'm so excited to weigh in on Tuesday. My food intake today consisted of: took my pill at 430am* One (naughty) multigrain chciken and cheese sandwich. At about 5am 2 handfuls of grapes at about 9.30am
    3/4s of a 6 inch subway flatbread with turkey and ham, cucumber, tomato,lettuce, carrot, and cucumber. With a 600 ml water. 7.30pm I had 2 vita wheat lunch slices with ham and tomato.

    I am so surprised at myself for not feeling all that hungry and filling up much quicker. Its amazing :)

    Welcome. I so much like your menu! Mmmm meat+veggies yum!
    Yes, that's what Duromine does - suppresses your hunger. All the rest you do yourself and your body loses extra fat little by little.

    Go on! Have a great day!

    Ahh, Sunday already! I have been meaning to post earlier but I have been extra busy.. on Thursday I ate pretty much the same as Wednesday and on Friday I was driving all day so I packed some healthy snacks to take along with me. Saturday was the worst day of the week for me food-wise... I took my pill at 5.30am and didnt have breakfast until 7.30am I had a banana and about a cup of grapes. At 11.30 I had a half of a 6 inch subway turkey and ham wrap with lots of salad. I was at the beach between 12 and 1pm.. and I started to feel rather dizzy and sick so I got out of the surf and went an had a huge drink of water and sat down for about 20 mins.. I still wasn't feeling well I felt like i needed some sugar sooo (probably not the best choice) but I got an ice cream cone and sat down and after that I felt much better. . In the arvo I had a banana and half an apple. Driving home that night I felt a the same as I did at the beach so I pulled into a servo and I got a twix bar and ate it throughout the 4 hr drive home. While I was away I weighed myself on different scales and I was down to 118.9 which was a 1.1kg weihhtloss for the last 3 days but when I got home and weighed myself I was still 120. I'm not sure if I did lose it and gain it back again from my ice cream cone and chocolate bar but it's ok the price I have to pay.. so tomorrow is the last day of this week so I will do a final weigh for week 1, tomorrow but so far it is 4kg. Oh Friday and Saturday I would have been lucky if I drank 1lt of water each of the days..

    Good luck, skinny!
    Personaly I think you felt sick at the bitch because of the Sun. Don't you think?
    All in all it is ridiculous to think you gained a kilo because of a chocolate bar. These first kgs you lose - mostly water and some toxins, so a stable weight loss you can notice at second and third weeks. Don't worry, yet try to change your nutritional habits. Life is cool without icecream too!

    Defiantly! Ok so today I have had the yukkiest feelings of dizziness and nausea I felt like I needed to vomit all day but even when I tried to force myself nothing came up... still feeling pretty yuck. Going to bed extra early tonight to try and sleep it off. I drank 3 lts of water today had an orange an apple and a banana 2 dry crackers, for lunch I had a chicken burger and for dinner we had Chinese so couple of pieces of Lemon chicken some fried rice and little bit of noodles.. anyways I'm rather conserened about the dizziness and what not because it really effects my performance at work.. is it normal after no side effects the 1st week to get them the second week? Is it side effects or is it something to do with what I have been eating ? Hmm I hope it doesn't last long, anyway, still going to soldier on through it :)

    Would skipping the tablet for a day help anything? Like give my body a break from the drug or would it be like starting over new?

    Nope. Don't listen to anyone who suggests you skipping a dose. Duromine only has to be used every day.
