    Hi there,
    Just wanted to stop by and say hello :)
    I’m starting on 30mg tomorrow and I’m excited, but starting to get nervous. My doctor wasn’t keen so only gave me one month to start with. She tried to really scare me with the potential side effects but I was pretty determined to give it a go.
    I’m 37, have 3 kids (youngest is 3 months) and my first goal is to lose just over 20kg and get down to 80 - hopefully by my wedding next March.
    Anyhoo, fingers crossed this stuff works!

    Hey Bilby80! Welcome to the forum! May your Duromine journey go in the best way it can go!

    Looking forward to witnessing your success story. Cheers!


    PS. I hope that you’re not breastfeeding… you should not take Duromine while breastfeeding.

    Hi Bilby80!!
    I’m starting tomorrow too.
    My start weight is 92.3 kilos and I’d like to get to 70 kilos.

    I’m 38 and have 2 kids - we are in a similar boat somewhat. Would love to buddy up if you are keen?

    Good Luck on your journey!

    How are you going today? I feel a slight buzz, so far, not much else.

    Not much at all! No buzz, but I’m not really hungry and am thirsty, but it’s been a hectic day running around for appointments with kids so that’s not unusual.
    I’ve been really good food wise though, so that’s a good start!

    Not the best - went to bed about 10:30, I think, and then woke up every couple of hours. Then up at 5:30 as usual because my 2 year old thinks that’s an acceptable wake up time
    Let’s see what today brings!

    Ok here’s my 5pm report. Sorry to hijack your post but no one else seems to be talking to me in my thread :D :D
    I’ve had a very productive day. No hunger but forced myself to eat at meal times.
    I’m not thinking about food and I haven’t once reached for anything sweet.
    I cleaned up my kids toy room, which was a huge mess. Vacuumed and Mopped the living areas and kitchen. Also cooked dinner.
    I have struggled with motivation and lethargy for so long, I’m amazed I got all this done today.

    How did you go?

    Bilby, hi! Hopefully, you will have some better sleep tonight. However, you might consider the possibility of taking any sleeping aid (before you buy anything, inform the pharmacist about Duromine). Here are some tips for fighting insomnia, as well. Fingers crossed

    Lol, hijack away :) I think we’re having a pretty similar experience- I’m not bouncing off the walls but have had a significant increase in energy. I’ve been able to go on the treadmill and actually get stuff done around instead of sitting down eating chocolate because I’m exhausted. That reminds me, our toy room needs some attention lol.
    Hope you get some more sleep tonight Mamma!

    Oh I used to that too, grab some chocolate for a quick snack and then eat the whole damn block!
    I went to the chemist yesterday and got some restavit to help with sleeping. I can’t say that it did much for me - I got approx 4.5 hrs of sleep. Still, better than the night before I suppose. I think I will take myself for a long walk this evening, that might help.
    On the upside, I stepped on the scales and it said 90.5. I’m sure it’s all water weight, but I’ll take it.
    How are you going @Bilby80 ? Hope you had a restful night!

    Nothing is going to plan today.
    I am extremely emotional and cranky. I'm snapping at my kids. Could be a combo of very little sleep and the meds? Oh and it is also very hot here today.
    Unsure.
    I also do not have the same level of energy as I did yesterday.
    I have eaten ok. Not enough water also. Hoping for some sleep tonight.

    I’ve struggled a bit with the heat today too but otherwise have been ok. I do think I’m feeling the heat more on this and sweating a lot too. A little bit hungry every now and then but not too bad.
    I didn’t get much sleep last night, even more broken than the previous night. If it continues I might think about getting something to help, but will see how the week goes.
    Hope you get to relax and feel a bit better once the kids go to bed!

    Hey there @Mammaof2! Sorry for your moods…. I mean, yes, feeling emotional and cranky can easily be cause by Duromine or by insufficient sleep, or by both combined. Plus the hot weather and insufficient water. What can I say? These create a fertile ground for feeling the way you feel. Fingers crossed for a good sleep


    @Bilby80, you know, many people report excessive sweating even without the heat, while being on Duromine, so yes, it is possible that Duromine makes you sweat more. However, you should remember to hydrate yourself A LOT better. And yes, you should take something to help you sleep. Otherwise, the weight loss might stop and you will be soooo low in energy, and you don’t need that! Be well! =)

    It was OK. I slept, but was restless from 2-4, up at 530.
    Second day for me, feeling a little flatter and definitely over the weather here.
    Its hard feeling out of sorts with the kids. I have a very defiant 3yo and a 4mth old :confused:
