Hi all, just checking in and letting people know how I am going. I have just finished my third week and touch wood am finding duromine working really well, so far no side effects except occassional insomnia and greater thirst which means I am drinking plenty of water which is beneficial to weight loss. I am not extremely hungry and finding that I am not wanting to eat and having to remind or push myself to eat something. I have been using the app "MyNetDiary" on my iphone to track my food, calorie and exercise and am finding this really helpful I am usually eating around 900-1100 calories per day.
My general day involves
Breakfast - 3 pitted dates and a banana
Lunch - A lowfat yoghurt
Dinner - vegies or salad and small amount of meat
snacks - 2 -3 pieces fruit, a small anount of mixed nuts (brazil, almond and pistachios) and seeds (pumpkin and sunflower)
and about 2.5 - 3.0 litres of water.
I try to walk at least everyday sometimes I do about 15 mins other days about an hour.

My starting weight was 120.9
First week loss of 3.1kg = 117.8
second week loss 1.4kg = 116.4
third week loss 1.2kg = 115.2kg
total loss of 5.7kg since starting.

I would be greatful for any input of advise.
thanks
Yvette :):):)

At the end of week 3 I had a good loss of 1.3kgs taking me to 4.8kgs total loss since I started. I was super happy but dammed that 200 grams I missed out on to reach my first goal of loosing 5 kgs.

I had a sneaky mid week weigh in this morning and I got that damn 200 grams AND 200 more! ^_^

I can now officially say I've lost 5 kgs and 200 grams lol

Very happy this morning ^_^

Hi, I think the amount people lose varies. I believe the biggest losses are in the first week, and then it tapers off. But if I understand correctly you should be consistently losing, if you're eating a low calorie diet and doing your exercise, you will lose something each week it may be as low as as 100grams or as much as a kg or more. :)

KaylaLouise, I am daily logging on my info page on here at the moment, but I use the myfitnesspal to log my weekly weight as well as the duromine livinglite website cause they have a graph :) Im on my second week at the moment and will do my two weekly weigh in on Wednesday. I'm trying not to expect too much cause I don't want to feel let down x
