    Hi guys- i hope u dont mind that i have joined this forum.. im from south africa.

    Here's my info.. i am 1.53m tall (that's short) and my weight reached its peak at 67kg.. it may not seem like a lot but my bmi is way over and my weight for my height should be between 47-55kg.

    i started on duromine on 27 July 2012 and felt amazing the entire day. I had a few moments where there were pangs of hunger but it quickly surpassed- and when it did, it left me feeling as if i had a full meal. Altho i didnt feel hungry much the entire day i still ate some bran for brekkie. about half a cup of basmati rice and chicken for lunch and some chicken and gravy for dinner. This week my eating went pretty much the same as the first day (small healthy meals with some fruit inbetween, and lots and lots of water). its not hard to drink a lot of water because one of the side effects i got was dry mouth, and the first 4 nights i had problems sleeping. but the last 2 nights have been good solid sleeps. i have been going to the gym as well but not doing too heavy a workout. about 30 minutes of good cardio and some resistance exercises- including ab exercises! i didnt wanna be one of those ppl who hopped on the scale everyday but i could feel my clothes fitting better by the next day. so since it was my 7th day yday- i decided to do a weigh-in and i was over the moon. in just 7 days i lost a whopping 5kg!! my weigh in was 62 kg!!! i guess going to gym does speed up the process because i have been eating enough to ensure that i get all necessary nutrients and had still only expected to have lost between 2-3 kgs. as excited as i am- i know that this is the easy part. maintaining it is going to be the hard part. i am determined to be more active and eat healthily- not until a certain time but as a LIFESTYLE. once i hit 55kg i will get off the duromine and then my mental strength will truly be tested.

    I hope this has helped anyone that is considering going on duromine. I will try and leave feedback as often as possible as to how the journey is going.

    hi rosewahya,

    well im into the third week at the moment and feeling really good... the weight loss has slowed drastically (just abt 2 kgs since end of week 1)... but i was expecting that because at first u just lose the water weight. the only thing i find frustrating about the duromine is that the mouth gets realllllly dry. but at least it forces me to get enough water in. the other thing is- i skipped the duromine on 2 different occasions and totally forgot that i didnt take it coz i still felt no hunger! hope it continues this way! thanks for the interest :)

    Im glad ur feeling really good, thats good to hear. Shame about the slowed weight loss but its prob for the best, more likely to keep it off that way. I am also suffering from the dry mouth. Chewing gum also helps. Good luck on the rest of ur journey.
