Welcome Diva!

If you follow a healthy eating plan you should see good results soon. As far as exercise is concerned, I think a lot of people do not feel up to it in the beginning, but it seems the more weight they lose the more motivated they become and actually want to start exercising.

Do not beat yourself up over exercise too much in the beginning, give it a few weeks and re-asses how you feel then.

Good luck, and please keep us up to date
:);)

Hi there, am on my 2nd day of duromine 15mgs. All going OK so far! Very thirsty but water and gum is helping. Currently doing weight watchers as well to help me eat healthier. Just had a bub 5months ago and now at 105kg. I maintained 92kg for a year pre pregnancy which for me I was OK with as at my heaviest I used to be 114kg after my first two kids. Not exercising heaps yet as I'm getting used to the feel of duromine but am definitely doing heaps more round the house with the energy boost its great! My kitchen is spotless thanks to my 4am wakeup lol. Good luck to everyone on their journey to feeling great!

Sounds like your doing well. Huge congrats on taking a new direction. With Duromine it provides you with a 3 month window of opportunity and to make new habits and break old ones. Reality is, if you don't change you habits now, when the Duromine wears off or you body becomes immune to the drug, if no new eating and exercise habit has been formed you will be really disappointed in what has happened by Xmas. Just don't rely on the drug to help you. Unless of course you're ok with gaining back the weight plus more. Eating healthy and exercising is key to a longterm lifestyle.
Still, it's awesome that you are losing the weight and feeling great with the results, it makes you feel invincible!!
Rock on, stay fab :)

Hi, I'm on day 3 of 15mg. Haven't had the energy today like the first 2days but I did sleep better. Not hungry and I'm drinking plenty of water but haven't seen any change on my scales or measurements. I'm eating healthy and small portions as I was already doing it with weight watchers. I lost 4.2kg in a month and a half on weight watchers but then the weight loss stopped so doc offered me duromine. Any suggestions on what's happening would be appreciated!

Hi Lenny , to be honest I really don't know how to take ur reply ... Think there was some motivation in there somewhere?? I've always told myself that if I take duromine its just to help me get myself on the right track sort of a guide line to a healthy better life ... I def intend on making huge a change and kepping to the new way of life !

So sorry if I came across in a different way than intended. I truly hope that you nail it and gain huge satisfaction from your journey.
You've got the right attitude towards lifelong changes, I really look forward to seeing your results and reading your comments. Nothing gives me a bigger thrill than seeing success through healthy eating and exercise and that kick start the Duromine provides.

Rock on, stay fab :)

Hi Jenny78! You and I are very similar as I to am on 15mg and currently weigh 109. I started my journey on 7th July and the only side effect is I was feeling very very bloated but the chemist advised I was drinking way to much water and it has gone away. First weigh in and measurements tomorrow, I am a little nervous.
Thank you to everyone as your information and support has been very helpful :)

Hi Gemma you will do great I'm sure! I have my fingers crossed for you. Even if its not a huge number you have lost just keep in mind the steadier you lose the more chance of keeping it off after duromine so my doctor told me. I'm now in double digits on the scale and feeling great! Have so many more clothes in my closet I can wear lol. I am off my tablets for a week as I'm having surgery to have my tubes tied this thursday but I'm not worried I intend to just keep eating healthy!:)
