    Hi Guys!

    Look at me now!

    Beginning stats:
    Height: 182cm
    Starting Weight: 126.7 kg
    Starting BMI: 38.3

    From this:

    September 27, 2010

    And this (me on the right)

    April 2011

    To this:

    January 2012

    And this:

    Today!

    It has been six weeks and 2 days since I started Duromine.

    Here are my current stats:
    Current weight: 111.3 kg
    Current BMI: 33.6
    Lost of: 15.4 kg
    Still to go: 24.3 kg

    I'm so excited - it is time to set another mini-goal. I want to get to a 20kg loss by Feb 21st.
    I'm hoping to get married on March 17th in double figures. I don't care if it's 99.9kg! I'm working towards that!

    When I get to my goal weight and can maintain until next February, I am going to pay for a pin up photography session - a surprise for my SO.

    Wish me luck!!!

    - Laura Bear

    What an inspiration. I am heading to the Dr this coming monday to get a script for D. My mum has been on it for a few months and has had great success too. Nice to see some actual pictures of results. Very happy for you :)

    Thanks, wannabe-sexymamma!

    I've weighed myself again and have lost another kilo - now, only 3.1kg until my mini-goal of losing a total of 20kg...

    Hi JHL,

    Lord, it's been a journey!
    Today I have just broken the -18kg mark (lost 18.3kg after a heinous 6km walk, 1.9km cycle, and moderate 45minute gym workout of Friday - I'm still feeling it!)

    Anyway, I've started an album up on Facebook, adding a new photo here and there with the caption of how much I've lost.

    This is me yesterday at 17.9kg - we went to get our rings for the wedding and 10 metres of Royale Duchess Satin ($509!!!!) for my dress!

    Today marks my 10th week of Duromine! And what a special little time it is.

    Yesterday I walked (read: panted, dawdled, crawled) a fairly decent portion of Killara Estate in Seville with my sister and my darling mutt, Digit.
    I'm not sure of the kilometers it was, but WHEW! I know there were 3 unforgiving hills that had me walking backwards after a while!

    This morning, after waking from an amazing sleep, I jumped in the scales... -700gm! This brings my total to, *drum roll*

    20.2kg!!!!

    ... Naturally, I threw on a dress that was delivered to work that day - a size smaller than my usual at that website.

    I would like to add that my sleeping has improved with the purchase of a "beating heart" pillow - a small hug-gable pillow that mimics the sound of a heartbeat - really quite comforting for me and no requirement for the other half who gets unbearably hot!

    Also, for those wondering, the majority of outfits I am wearing in my newer me photos are from Bettie Page Clothing or Gasoline Queen.

    Let's see where I can get for the wedding!

    Hi all.

    Yesterday was my 68th day on Duromine, nearly to the end of my 3 months.

    I stayed at Mum's over the weekend for respective Bucks and Hens celebrations - it could have been a combination of having my wisdom tooth pulled and the fact Mum's scales were super nice to me, but I lost 2.2kg while I was there, bringing a total loss of 21.5kg.

    Me yesterday, at my hen's "high tea"

    I have 19 days to go to shed another 6kg to get to my next mini goal. It's going to be a tough one.

    Must stay strong (and ignore this mornings pity salami/cheese/beef pie)
