Duromine - Week 2

Published by Ashleigh7441 . Views: 100

Week 2 has been done and dusted!

I have heard a lot of people say that week 2 is the most soul crushing week, as many people seem to lose little to no weight after their first week of incredible weight loss. I wasn't going into my review with my doctor with high hopes. Week 2 came with another challenge - My menstrual cycle! Cue eerie music! As most women know, this time of the month comes with weight gain, bloating, severe cravings, and 0 energy. All ingredients for a diet disaster waiting to happen!

Weigh in 2 for week 2 took place on Saturday 10 November 2018. Not only was it a weigh in, but it was a body composite scan too. Yippe - I get to see how much fat I have. Oh God, please don't let me be 100% fat like a walking, talking, fleshy land jellyfish!

I have a motto I live by - Aim low, avoid disappointment! And boy I was aiming low! I walked into the doctors room, expecting to have lost nothing, all while thinking back on the delicious Atkins chocolate bar and ice cream I ate on 6 November, and cursing myself for giving into sweet, sweet temptation!

Well, was I surprised! The scale moved! I was down a further 2.4kg! All I was hoping for was to drop to under 80kg. I would have been ecstatic with 79.99999kg. No. It was not 79.99999kg. It was 78.9kg! My heart was racing. I don't know if it was because I took my Duromine 3 hours prior, or out of pure excitement.

My current results are:
  • Weight: 78.9kg
  • Fat mass: 30.6kg
  • Muscle mass: 45.8
  • Bone mass: 2.5kg
  • Visceral fat rating: 6
Oh - and my waist shrunk more! From hovering between 81 and 80cm, all the way down to 75cm! Oh to be a true hourglass figure again...

The scan also indicated my idea body weight - 59.9kg. I thought this to be a little too thin, and have aimed for 68kg to best suit my body type.

While last week was a blur of pain, exhaustion and sneaky treats, this week will be about the exercise again, and continuing to lower that number on the scale each week!

Best of luck to everyone doing their weigh in this week. You have got this!!
