Hi all!

This is my first time taking Duromine. A good friend of mine suggested it to me since she has been off an on with it for the past 2 years and has lost weight successfully. I had been doing a lot of research on the internet, coming across this site; so I decided once I started Duromine I'll post in here too! :)

okay so my background information is;
  • I am 18 from Australia.
  • My most highest weight would have had to been around 100kg in 2011/2012. But as of october 2012 i started exercising and eating healthy which then my weight dropped to 95kg. BUT then i went to europe for 6 weeks and jumped back to 97.5kg!
  • Then since february i had yet again been exercising and healthy eating which then i lost weight and i became 88.9kg (from tuesday 25.6.2013)
  • My height is 166cm :(
I started on Duromine 15mg on tuesday the 25th June 2013. That tuesday was the day of my doctors appointment as well! so i didnt end up taking the Duromine until around 10.30am.
I really had no side effects on tuesday. No increased energy, no sleeping problems (in fact i think i sleep more now!) and i still felt hungry. I weighed in at the doctors as 88.9kg.

On wednesday, i took duromine at 7.30am. I had no side effects throughout the day and once again no problems sleeping. I weighed myself that afternoon (i always like doing late afternoon because if it hasnt moved a lot or at all it makes me become more motivated to exercise) and i was 88.3kg!I was surprised.

Now i got really surprised yesterday (27.06.2013). I took duromine at 7.30 again but then went back to bed and woke up around 11.30am! :eek: when i got up i went straight to the scales and i weighed in at 87.1kg!!! i was like woaaaaaaaaaaaaah what. thats more than a kilo overnight! i was pretty ecstatic :)

And now to date, today i woke up and took my duromine again at 7.30am, went back to bed and woke up at 9.30am. I went to the scales and i came in at 86.9kg. Only a 200 gram loss but i'm happy im not stuck in the really high 80's anymore! So in three full days (today is the fourth i will weigh tomorrow morning and count it as my fourth day weigh in) i have lost 2kg!:laughing:



I didnt think duromine 15mg would be that affective because im reading that people on the 30mg and 40mg are losing around 6kg a week! but obviously duromine has proved me wrong!


I hope everyone else is going great with duromine and the side effects aren't too bad for you all!

STATS:
25.06.2013 -- 88.9kg
26.06.2013 --88.3kg
27.06.2013 --87.1kg
28.06.2013 -- 86.9kg

Hi Jess - sounds like you are on your way!! :) good luck, the only thing I would suggest is not to weigh daily - I was doing that and although its great when you see the scales moving in the right direction - if there is no movement - I felt a bit demotivated - I try and stick to once a week and it is pretty motivating when you see the change :)

ton11x,
i know how you feel! today is my fifth day and i weighed myself to see what yesterday's results were and it was only a 200 gram loss :( i think the weight loss becomes slower over time! so all together i've lost 2.2kg in 4 days.
i should really hide the scales like you say though haha! i'll give it a try until monday :)
good luck with your journey!

Hello sunshine! Don't worry, I believe you're doing great, since slow weight loss doesn't always mean that something is wrong or the pills don't work. Instead, you don't have side effects which is great! Just don't give up and keep moving forward.

Good luck Jess hopefully the doc gives you an increase. Eating well and a little exercise certainly go a long way with duromine. I am positive you will see your goals in no time.
