    Hello everyone well another week in which I only lost 0.2kgs. I am not unhappy about that at all 6 weeks in and have lost something every week so cannot complain and it is the easiest method of losing weight I have ever tried. I have had success with other diets like optifast and Dukan and although I lost weight quickly they were very hard to stick to mentally and when I came off them the weight came back plus more. With Duromine though I feel so much more in control especially with cravings and junk food.
    I didn't exercise much last week and didn't eat as well which probably explains only losing 200g. This week though I am flying have eaten very well and exercised every day so hoping to keep that going through the long weekend and until my Wednesday morning weigh in. I shall try and check in a bit more often but will only update my progress once a week hopefully on a Wednesday night. Hope you are all doing well.


    STARTING WEIGHT - 120.2kgs
    AFTER WEEK 1 - 113.7kgs lost 6.5kgs
    AFTER WEEK 2 - 113.5kgs lost 0.2kgs
    AFTER WEEK 3 - 111.0kgs lost 2.5kgs
    AFTER WEEK 4 - 110.6kgs lost 0.4kgs
    AFTER WEEK 5 - 109.6kgs lost 1.0kgs
    AFTER WEEK 6 - 109.4kgs lost 0.2kgs

    Well the extra exercise may have helped I could have been even better with eating this week so very happy with loss. If I had of been absolutely perfect I think I could have managed a 2kg loss so that's something to aim at. Entering last 11 days of prescription really hoping for at least one more month fingers crossed. A pattern has emerged it seems every Rdo week is a good loss not sure why all I can think is I get the whole day to exercise a little more. Hopefully I can change that this week as the pattern shows it will be a low loss I will be trying best to make it a good loss. Hope you are all going well

    Woohoo! Pretty happy with this weeks result (-0.9kgs) as I did have a couple of naughty meals and my exercise was down although I did manage 40 laps non stop on Saturday in pool a personal best.
    Maybe the fact I didn't over eat on the naughty stuff and had to actually throw out left overs helped. Usually I would have scoffed it all in the past. Was a bit down after tearing calf muscle the other day as that has restricted my exercise but today's weigh in has pumped me right back up.
    Tomorrow morning is back to the doctors and D Day to see whether or not I get to continue on duromine my guess is no but really hoping I can or at least only have a month off it.
    Hope you are all winning the battle keep with it duromine really can help you change your eating habits. I certainly plan to keep eating and exercising the same if I come off it. Keep smiling.

    Hello hello BeachBum!
    We've been missing you:)
    It's nice to know that you are trying to keep the same diet plan after you finish your pills. Maybe it's not easy at the beginning, but you can do it, since I could.
    Again the numbers are impressive!
    Take care!

    WOOHOO saw the doctor this morning she was very happy with progress and that the only side effect has been dry mouth. She decided to give me another 2 month supply of 30mg. She said it can plateau after awhile so keep an eye on weight. I am definitely going to do another month and assess after that. I may then take 2-4 weeks off to see how body and I react. If all good I will start to use the other month after that. Hope to get close to 100kgs in 4-6 weeks that would be awesome. Just need calf to get better quickly so I can walk/jog again soon.
    Have a great day mine is now awesome. Also shortest day of year here so finally start the run towards spring and summer yay

    Not sure anybody is interested any more but I shall continue my Journey for now on here hope anybody who reads this is going well.

    So as you will see from numbers below I gained for the first time on duromine. Was disappointed but overall still have lost a good amount and being injured and not eating as well as weeks before 1.3kgs doesn't seem bad.
    I cant say I am looking forward to this Wednesday at weigh in. If I gain 2 weeks in a row I will be shattered and that normally leads to the vicious circle of having bad food for comfort.
    Even though calf far from good I have tried to swim more and just walk no running for now. Exercise is such a key to duromine I believe even getting a 20-30 minute walk in a day makes a difference.
    I certainly wish it was October here already so I could bike ride after work cannot wait for warmer weather.

    So I shall try and call in two days from now and let you know how I went good or bad.
    I am seriously thinking of taking a month of duromine and work hard to maintain or lose weight then us my last month of duromine after that and see if it kick starts of again. Will be very interesting to find out one way or another thats for sure.
    Keep at it guys and keep smiling

    Looks like my journey has died on here not even sure it has been viewed. I hoped to get motivation and to hear the inspiring journey of others. Maybe it was the fact that i was obe of only a few males here I dont know. It seems my journey is also mimicking the lack of interaction on here as I have been up and down with that as well. In my last week now of my third packet and have decided to have a break after these as I believe body has adjusted to duromine. I shall search for another blogging type site or helpful site to try and get me out of rut as I really do not want to go back to what I was. I hope you all have success. Thank you Kate for welcoming me in the beginning and for a few of your motivating replies. To anyone else who came upon my journey I hoped it helped you even if it was only in a small way. Good luck everyone who actually sees this. Hope your numbers always drop c

    Hello BeachBum!:)
    It's a pity and a shame no ladies have supported your journey posts here! I'm sorry, I was away last week, I had some things to do + vacation... But I have always been reading your posts here! Maybe you are right and some ladies just "scared" having conversation with male representative on this forum, o_O maybe there is another reason. It's just that we are used to post almost every day, some actually do so. And your posts come once a week or so. Please don't take offence on us.
    But I hope you will change your mind and give us another chance;) to prove we DO care about your success!
    I do. Because as many know, I had to go through the same once. So I know how hard it is and how instable mood can be during these days. And you have doubts whether you will lose more weight or not...
    BTW, what numbers do you have at the moment? Last update was 108.6kg as I see. You said that your body "has adjusted to duromine", if so, then it is reasonable to take some break. But I am sure you know best what to do.
    p.s. Take care of you, darling and I wish you success in this weight loss fight!

    Hi Beachbum, not sure if you will see this if you have found another site already :) I prodominantly write in and scroll through the blogs so I hadn't seen your post previously. I think the way of this site is that the amount of comments or support you receive will tend to vary during differant times. I update my blog daily generally but life can get in the way yea :) Anyhow you have done a really great job so far and I hope you don't get too dissenheartened or disspirited- or any other dis word and throw in the towel. I totally agree that exercise is key for results and for mental well being too. You're just happier when you are active as a whole. It really sucks when an injury slows things down or prevents you from keeping active, make sure to take care of yourself and only do low impact until you have healed up. Good luck.
