Hey there.
My name is Melanie and im 20 years of age. My diet and exercise have never bern so great and majority of my family is severely overweight and I started duromine sunday weighing 113.5kg. Its embarrassing to admit but my bmi was 40.77 when I saw the doctor last week. I have been experiencing irregular periods and lack of energy so my doctor decided to put me on the 15mg. First day I jumped straight into gym and forced myself to eat throughout the day in little amounts. Noticed I had much more energy and no other side effects.

Day 2 went to gym at 7am and was there for an hour doing cardio. Still made myself eat and developed a insane headache for 20mins. Later in the arvo a friend wanted to go gym so I joined her for another half hour session. Weighed myself and in 1 day lost 1.5kg so sitting at 112kg.

Hoping I can keep this up. Ive cut out all soft drink and fast food. Cut out bread and going to draw up a meal plan and sign up for some personal training sessions.

I've been a big gal all my life so hoping my motivation will rub off to others around me.
Would love to hear some positive stories and ill keep you up to date.

MEL xo

Hi, Melanie!
Welcome, nice picture you have:)
Be careful with cardio - make it moderate but effective. All the rest should be fine! I wish you that.

Hi. You see, most ladies think that the more they do cardio, the better results. But you should listen to your body first of all. If you feel extremely dizzy after 15 minutes of cycling or treadmill, then why would you do it anyway? Cardio are best for warmups and cooling down. 20 minutes is usually a maximum that is allowed for cardio exercise. I know because I used to work out with personal trainer. Plus, if person has a severe obesity, his cardiovascular system is probably weak and he doesn't want to affect it even stronger. I saw how ladies used to do cardio almost fainting...dear God
If you want to lose weight, start with 5-10-15 minutes cardio + strength exercises. It is enough to launch your metabolism and burn fat within the next few hours. Little by little you will come to the results, if you do it regularly.
Good luck!

@Melaniee im the same, ive always been big but im ready to change!

Im only young, weighed 102kg when i first started duromine on the 2nd november,
I was really tired and felt nauseous for the first few days but its getting better (thankgod!) i only eat about once a day, i try to eat a steak every now and then so i keep my iron up, makes me feel way better. Only side effect is dry mouth so i drink sooo much water, no soft drink at all!
I eat really healthy and try to get out a bit when im feeling ok.

Im proud to say, today the 8th november i weighed in at 98.8kg. Im in shock but so happy and motivated to keep going.
My goal is 70kg, still a bit but lets prove everyone we can do it!

Goodluck xxx

Kizza, you should eat more than once per dayo_O
Yes you are losing weight, but that doesn't mean your body should starve. Little portions 3-5 times a day would be perfect. Otherwise your muscle tissue will suffer, and we have it all over the body. Think of it.
