    Hi all

    I started Duromine 30mg last week and it has been a crazy experience. I am just thrilled and relieved that I made this far. Because most of the diets that I attempted does not last more than 3 days lol. So I am really am determined and enthusiastic on this one.

    I have been overweight turned obese most of my life so I pretty much accepted that its fate. That all changed. My boyfriend is probably the catalyst behind all this, we both want to start a family so I want take responsibility of mental and physical well-being.

    I am really excited on this journey so will be posting weekly updates :)

    Week 1

    Starting weight: 85.6kg
    Current weight: 83.5kg
    Weight loss: 2.1kg

    Goal weight: 55kg

    Congrats on the first weight loss! Way to go, Sarziee! From everything I read about you, seems to me you have a very serious approach to your nutrition and this already is more than half of success! Love your attitude, love the fact that you are starting a new chapter of your life and immediately decided to start it with becoming healthier. Have a great week 2!

    Hey April

    Thank you very much! It sure doesn't come easy. My boyfriend pretty much go through what I eat everyday, he said he will stop if I hit 20. o_O

    Today is Week 2 Day 3, and half a kilo is lost! 5 more days to go, I can't wait for my next weigh-in hahah.

    While I am not eating like I was before, I feel like I am eating "just a bit more" than the recommended portion size on the pretext of hunger. This is probably because I don't snack and that I eat 3 main meals every day.

    Well, your boyfriend is concerned with your health and that I consider a great plus! Losing weight with support makes a huge difference. I hope that you will engage him into trainings. You can workout together and both increase your fitness level. And have so much fun! =)) Challenges are a great thing.

    Happy to hear you’re so excited and motivated to move ahead and push harder. It is so important to keep going all the time.

    You know, it is always better to have a healthy snack than to consume more at a time. Besides, I would advise you switch to sloooooow eating. As much as I hate food that cools down on the plate, I still do my best to chew slowly and take smaller bites. It helps so much to lower the amount of food you eat at a meal.

    Week 1

    Starting weight: 85.6kg
    Current weight: 83.5kg
    Weight loss: 2.1kg

    Week 2

    Starting weight: 83.5kg
    Current weight: 82.2kg
    Weight loss: 1.3kg


    I was hoping to achieve a loss of 1.5kilos this week but it just seems impossible. Is it because my body is getting used to Duromine?

    Well done on two successful weeks. Over 3kg in 14 days is amazing to be honest.

    Definitely seems that Duromine is working. Weight loss is just far too complex to ensure exact weight loss every week.

    As long as you’re still losing then it’s safe to say Duromine is working fine.

    You said 1.5kg seems “impossible” but we’re taking about 200g off! you could have that temporarily stored in your bladder or bowels it’s so negligible!

    Focus on the collective weight loss you’re doing very, very well!

    Ah, heeey… That is a great weight loss! What’s with self-discouraging? The first week’s loss is always greater due to the fact that you first lose water weight. As a rule, everyone shows a bigger loss in the first week. Besides, your results are really impressive.

    You can lose 0.5-1 kg next week, and again 2 kg on your fourth week. It is impossible to see the same loss each week. Our bodies are too complex to run like a clock. Besides, you can lose more in weight in some weeks, and lose more in volumes in other weeks. So measurements also count.. just like the way that your clothes fit. Do not focus solely on weight.

    And keep pushing! Lower weight loss should not make you stop or leave the idea of losing weight. You should continue.. only consistency will help you get somewhere. And you can do it!

    May this new week bring you a ton of pleasant emotions and lots of fun while exercising! Cheers

    Thank you April and Sk1nnyoneday!

    I stopped Duromine as of today as I am experiencing the discomfort of both of my eyes.

    Has anyone experienced this? Eye pressure? There were times I have to blink my eyes a couple of times as I thought my vision was blurry. And I I am now sensitive to lights. The worse thing is the headache from the forehead to the back of my neck. I am really worried for my eyesight.

    OMG!!! You are so right to stop Duromine. And now you need to get to the doctor. As soon as possible. High intraocular pressure is not good. And seems to me it’s high not just in the eyes… You need a medical check… ophthalmologist for sure.

    So sorry that you have this side effect… Did you check your eye pressure ever before? Because, if it was already higher, Duromine could have exacerbated it. Please, if you can, tell us what the doctor says. Good luck to you, Sarizee. Keep my fingers crossed for a temporal pressure increase and fast healing.

    I went to my family doctor because it was just unbearable. It has been going on for a week or so. At first, I thought nothing of it. I even told the doctor it probably could be my sinus but he said: "you have it (sinus) all your life, have you ever experience eye discomfort?"

    That's when my heart stopped.

    He gave me antibiotics eyedrops but he said the safest to see an eye specialist.

    You guys carry on the journey. I will be back hopefully!
