Hi all. Ive just started today (30mg) and Im a bit disappointed I don't fit into my too-tight skinny jeans already... Just kidding!! ;)

After being diagnosed with an under-active thyroid, I tried for over 12 months to shift weight, with little to no success, and ALWAYS a gain after any little loss. I am pretty active (chasing a toddler all day and 3 hours of tennis a few days a week) and have tried every variation of eating on the planet! My Doctor suggested duromine and I was quite hesitant after reading some stories, but after coming across this forum, I armed myself with all the info, and made a plan between my Dr and a dietician, so I feel much better about my goals. Im not looking for a quick fix, just some motivation.

Current stats:
Height: 173cm
Weight: 94kg
Aiming for: 75kg with diet and exercise plan in place

Im curious if anyone measures themselves as well as weighing in? I found this has given me a more accurate result in the past. Have your results been reflected in measurements if doing so?

Looking forward to reading more of your success stories!

Hey Ali!

Firstly just want to say good choice deciding to go on duromine it's absolutely amazing and you notice changes in such a short time... I'm loosing weight every single day!

Just have to get through the first three days of side effects then it's just the thirsty issue from then on!

I have decided this time (as its my second time doing duromine) to measure myself and have booked in for 8 weeks to see a doctor each week for a weigh in so I don't relapse into my old habits!

I'm interested to see how the measurements go as wel as the weight.

How are you feeling today after the first pill?

Thanks gorge! It was a hard decision, but I think its a step in the right direction. Theres only so long you can calorie count and exercise without seeing results before you just totally give up, ya know?! So this is absolutely a last resort for me, but feeling good about it.

I think the dr at 8 weeks is an excellent idea. It will help make you accountable to someone, which I think is really important. I think the measuring will be good too, but I haven't noticed anyone mention it, thats why I was wondering.

I don't really feel much today at all after having the first pill. Knowing my luck the energy will hit me right around bedtime, because so far I still feel quite sluggish and don't have the extra energy people have raved about! That could be down to my disgusting excuse of a thyroid though, so Ill give it time. Ive read all these comments like 'I started today and now have so much energy I scrubbed the house top to bottom!' and 'I just vacuumed for 2 hours!' Im actually feeling like a nap, so hoping some of that will come my way soon :)
