    Hello, I have started duromine 30mg, I started on the 8th jan, been great so far, couldn't sleep much for the first 2 days but all good now, I am on my treadmill for 1.5 hours a day doing all sorts of programs on there, I have cut out all coffee, and junk food, just been eating fruit, steamed veggies and steamed fish, in 8 days I have lost 4.1kg :) I'm happy with how it's all going, I'm only on it for 30 days

    Starting weight 84.7 kg
    8 days later 80.6
    Goal weight 60-65
    weight lost 4.1kg

    Hello Mamma to 3! Well done, dear! I like your diet plan: veggies and fish are great for health and weight loss in general. 4 kgs in 8 days prove that you can achieve your goal easily! Happy for you) ) )

    Thank-you, I know if I have a bit of junk food I won't stop :/ so best to keep away from it. I find my moods can change pretty quick on these but never for long.

    Hello, im still here :)
    Been a very busy month for me, Im still on duromine and loving it, no more side effects, although some morning i wake up and its slightly hard to breath and no energy but if i sit down for about 5 minutes im fine again. i have obstructive sleep apnea so it doesnt help with things, i have surgery coming up soonish just waiting for a date.
    Ive been eating good still not a good as my first week though lol i lasted 10 days with no sugar :) i still havent bought a block of chocolate yet lol which is HUGE for me as im a chocoholic. wednesday is my last day on duromine so i will weigh in then im gana ask my doc if i can have 1 more month, im sure he will say ok, i can tell ive lost weight, not only from the scales but in my clothes to, all my size 16 clothes fall off me woohoo, i need to go buy a few size 14's. i am alost at my mini goal which is half way, so happy, i would of liked to reach my mini goal by the end of the 4th week but i have slowed down on the exercising, i now do it every few days not every day as my kids like to fight when im on my treadmill they are 10, 3 & 2. Any who i will pop in on wednesday with my 4week weight loss :)

    Hello Mumma to 3!
    It's great to know you managed to achieve so good results so quickly, 'cause I think it's optimal to lose about 2-3kg per week. Well done!
    As far as I remember your starting weight was 84kg or something? Well 84kg --> 76kg good achievement, so I'm sure you'll get closer to 65 by the next 4 weeks. It's good also that you've consulted your doc.
    Prepare yourself for life without the pills soon!

    Good luck!
