    Hi my name is Tash and I am 21 100kg.

    I have struggled all my life to loss weight but no matter how healthy I eat or how fit I get I never shed the kilos (I mainly gain muscle making me look bigger). I have been asking my family doctor to put me on some type of weight loss drug for years and he never would.

    When I came to uni I put on a further 15kg and was starting to get very depressed with how I looked. I went to a doctor in Wagga and she suggested Duromine. After some research I agreed to take it.

    This is my journey.

    So I started Metermine 30mg (chemist suggested) on Monday and I am not sure if I am feeling different. I definitely don't get hungry but I am still eating and not feeling full. I think I am feeling more awake but not overly. I usually feel extremely tired all day for no reason but now I feel normal which is nice. I go to the gym 5 or 6 times a week and do a mixture of cardio, weights and own body exercises.

    It hasn't been a week yet but I checked and I'm only 99.8kg. I was hoping for a bigger drop seeing as most people get the most results in the first two weeks. Ive cut my already healthy meals in half now to see if I can get better results. I really want to lose weight for a Holiday I am going on in December so I hope the kilos start shedding off.

    Starting Weight: 100kg
    Week 1 Result: ???
    Goal Weight: 70kg

    Fingers crossed.

    So I have stopped weighing myself every day because it was a little depressing, and I hope if I look at it on Monday there will be a bigger difference. I am getting my personal trainer friend to give me the full weigh in so I'll know lots of details like muscle gain and fat loss. So If i haven't lost any kilos hopefully I have lost fat and built muscle which will help in the fat burning in the long run.

    What I do everyday:
    0800 - Wake up and have tablet with water
    0815 - Breakfast (One egg omelette with tabouli mixed in) with coffee to stop constipation... yuck!
    1200 (10:00 weekends) - Gym for 1 - 1.5 hours. Have a banana afterwards
    1400 - Lunch: If I feel like it I'll have a chicken wrap, otherwise I just have some green tea.
    1600 - Go to work. Have a peice of fruit (apple or mandy) half way through shift.
    2030 - Home and make dinner. Usually a small piece of stake with steamed veggies and a green tea.
    2400 - Go to sleep.

    I already had a thirst craving before starting Metermine so I'm used to drinking lots of water.
    I drink almost 2L of water just at the gym.
    And probably another 2 - 3L throughout the day.
    I don't really drink anything else unless the off chance I go out with a friend I'll have a vodka, lime and soda or a vodka lemonade if I'm feeling naughty :)

    I don't have any problems sleeping, though I do go to bed pretty late anyway. I have, however, been getting woken up by this stupid bird every morning at 6am and find it hard to get back to sleep. I usually lie awake thinking of ways to ... kill ... it lol. But when I finally get up at 8 I'm wide awake which Is unfortunate coz I love a sleep in lol.

    If there is anything I might need to fix can someone give me a heads up.

    Thanks :)
