    Hey all Okay so here we go again but this time I'm determined to stick to it . I took Duromine about a year ago but I guess I just wasn't ready to fully commit . Anyway I have recently lost someone who meant a lot to me , turns out I'm probably better without him . So I'm trying to find me again , and losing all this unwanted weight is part of my journey . Day 5 today and apart from having trouble sleeping and forgetting to eat I'm doing okay - trying not to weigh myself until Wednesday . Last then I didn't join in on the forums but after reading them again and seeing all the support etc , why not hey ! I wish everyone good weight loss on your journey and to talk talk talk and don't let the little set backs and down days get the better of you !!! WE GOT THIS!!!

    6th day on Duromine and I have been getting really thirsty and struggling to get to sleep . My food isn't go as well as planned , I'm not feeling hungry at all so sometimes I forget to eat . Otherwise no other symptoms as yet . I have my first weigh in on Wednesday so a little nervous :-/ . But I'm going to keep on keeping on . X

    It can be hard to eat when you dont have any appetite but its good if you can make yourself, even if its a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit. Make sure you drink heaps, I think I have on average 4ltrs of water a day, on top of other fluids. Good luck on Wednesday with your weigh in, try not to stress too much, expect too much and remember no matter what that its a process. Most importantly remember that you've got this. You're doing awesome! x

    Try not to be disappointed, 2 kilos is 2 kilos you DONT have to lose. Progress!

    It doesn't need to be anything fancy. Just try to incorporate more veggies and lean meats into lunch and dinner. Most people have some form of coral for breakfast or you can even have protein like eggs that's what I do :)
