I'm unable to exercise to any degree due to physical disabilities and have gradually over time put on weight to a stage it's very uncomfortable.

I started on Metermine 30mg two weeks ago but it hasn't changed anything and I'm wondering why I haven't lost any weight. I eat healthy and have two glasses of wine with dinner at night and no junk food at all.

I was on Duromine two years ago and lost 4 kg in a month.

Could anyone possible tell me why this hasn't worked this time? It's very depressing. :(

Hi Sheltie,
Could it be that the 30mg is not strong enough?
Also, your saying you eat healthy, but are you eating SMALL portions throughout the day? If your only have 1 meal a day then your body will hold onto it as it goes into starvation mode... Maybe write up your daily intake and also the portion size.
Keep going at it.
I understand that due to physical disability you may not be able to do excercise, just keep ur spirit high. Even if you can get some small weights for your hands/arms??? any little thing can help?

This is the size I was given, so I'm unsure of other sizes.

My meals are usually small and consist of the same thing for breakfast and lunch daily.
Breakfast is a bowl of oatbran, oats, a few raisins, skim milk and a llittle yoghurt.
Morning tea is usually a small glass of tomato juice and a few cashews
Lunch is a wrap with grated lettuce, light cheese, beetroot, carrot and light mayo.
Afternoon tea is a banana and a cup of green tea.
Dinner is varied but not fatty foods and I'm always checking the food labels as to contents.
I also drink quite a lot of water throughout the day.
I never eat fried foods or much bread.
I've kept a diary which, on checking, says I'm eating the correct amounts required daily.
Will definitely give the arm exercises a go, thankyou for that.
I'll continue on though.
Thanks again for your input, I really appreciate it

Thats great!
only other thing i can think of is, halfing each meal, eating half then eating the second half in an hour - this will ensure you metabolism is constantly working.
Good luck withit :)

I've finished the course now. I had very small meal sizes, occasionally skipping lunch and drinking up to 2 litres of water a day. End result was no urseweight loss at all and I'm very disappointed. At $150 I just can't afford to buy another course as I'm on a pension. I'd really blown the budget with this in the hope it'd shed some kilos but I just hope others have far better success than I did.
