Thanks everyone :)
Im so hoping this works I just want to be able to look in the mirror and see the me Im meant to be.
Just a question should I weigh myself everyday or once a week? What do you all think would be better?

Rather weigh yourself once a week Amber because your weight may flactuate in between days and you may feel a little discouraged when you notice that you have gained even as little as 0.1g. Once a week is good. but what do you do in the meantime? You stay disciplined, working your ass off and great anticipation of that weigh in day. My bday is coming up in June 27th. I started on Duromine last Saturday and have lost 3.7kg since then. It has been 4 days. yeah I know.. I had to see if it's working. Now I see It is. Next weigh in is in 9 days

Hi Ambie :) Ive been taking Duromine for 2 1/2 weeks now. Im glad you took the plunge and decided to do something about your health. I needed a kickstart aswell. Dont be worried that it wont work, because if your eating healthy and excercising regularly then you will lose weight eventually anyway. Happy for you :laughing:

Absolutely. Once a week is the best way.

Hi Ambie

Could you please take us through your normal day? I want to try and figure out why you feel this way. Tell us how you spend your days, what you eatand eat and how much. We will go through it together and see if we can't do adjustments to change that feeling.

Seems fine with me. BUT!
#1. Do you sit at work?
#2. Do you drink water more than 1 L per day?
#3. Do you workout anyhow? (it's important, since no weight loss is achieved w/t exercises)

I work in child care so pretty much on my feet all day.
I drink a bit of water but not that much.
And when I get a chance I do some exercise dvds.

Hi question
does your time of the month slow down the weight loss? because Im thinking maybe thats why this week hasnt been as good as last weeks.

You can retain more fluid during that time of the month. Women can fluctuate around 2kg as far as I know? Drinking more water will keep fluid retention down and eating 5-6 small meals/snack will get your metabolism working faster :)
