    Hi all!

    Another newbie here I took my first Duromine 30mg this morning and so far so good.

    A little about me, I turned 30 late last year and weighed in this morning at 87.1kg...I think this is the heaviest I have ever weighed. I have been with my wonderful partner for 18 months now and over that time we have both piled on a bit of weight, of course he can lose it a lot easier than me and can be very diligent about food and exercise when he wants too. I struggle with not having a very good routine, he does shift work, can't eat tomatoes, likes to eat late etc so I think it has come to the point where I just have to do what is best for me and if that means I leave him a plate of food in the fridge then so be it...I think he'll be quite happy with that as he knows I like to eat early so I'm not going to bed with a full tummy.

    I have noticed my weight gain has affected my confidence in my every day life and also my sex life, I hate clothes shopping and when I find the odd piece that I like I buy it in every colour haha I literally have the same top in 5 different colours and I rotate them for work each week. I have so many wonderful 'skinny' friends who have either been blessed with naturally slim bodies or have put in the hard yards to get there but my motivation levels have been zero! My partner keeps commenting that I am always tired and lethargic and need to exercise so I really want to get back into yoga as I did it years ago and loved it.

    I have the script for Duromine written up last October and only just now have decided I'm in the right frame of mind to start taking it the ladies at the chemist yesterday were very encouraging and helpful and I have let my partner and the works girls know I'm taking it...just in case.

    This morning I've had very little appetite, I got hungry at my normal breakfast time but that disappeared pretty quickly so I bought a mango smoothie whereas normally I'd have 2 slices of fruit toast and an ice coffee. My mouth feels a little gluey and I feel like I have the shakes a little but I'll see how I go over the next week.

    Wishing all of you the best of luck on YOUR journey!
