Hello everyone!

I started on Duromine 30mg 5 days ago and finally am starting to feel the crazy side effects die down. I had trouble sleeping the first 3 nights, I am usually a Nanna and am in bed around 9pm and instead I was still up 11-12. I was awake around 5am each morning also. Last night was the first night I slept decently thankfully!

Energy is there but nothing too crazy. Dry mouth and a rather zoned out feeling affected me the first couple of days but I am feeling a lot better this morning!

My diet consists of meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch as I have done before and dinners are meat/veg/salad, very low carb.

Water is key at the moment as I am so thirsty which I know is normal. Still have my usual no sugar skim milk coffee in the morning.

I do tend to feel a little grumpy in the afternoon and I have made my other half aware of this!

I did have a sneaky weigh in yesterday and I have lost 3kg. I know the first week of any diet is always the biggest but it is still a nice little motivator. I have since told my partner to take my scales hostage and bring them out every Thursday for me so I can't be tempted to 'just see' lol.

Exercise seems to be every second day and I will either do 30mins on my exercise bike or a 45min walk/jog.

My starting weight was 66kg, current weigh is 63kg and my goal would be to get to 58kg. It isn't a lot to lose but I feel a small weight gain is very noticeable as I am a shorty at 163cm.

So my fingers are crossed and I will continue to update here.

All the best to everyone on here :)

Hi MissE,
Well done so far. I am on 30mg and today is day 14. I have lost 5kg but I think more in cm.

I had no side effects at all apart from dry mouth. The only thing I have noticed is by the time I get home from work all I want to do is sleep or I have days where I'm hungry. I'm not sure if this may have something to do with the horrible hot flushes I am having cause of menopause, but I will be see my gp about it.

I am also short 158cm and any weight gain is noticeable. I started at 72kg and my goal is 60kg.

All the best and would love to hear how you are going.

Hello again!

So week one's results leave me with a 4kg loss! Very happy!

The side effects have worn off but still find myself feeling a tad grumpy in the afternoons and still so thirsty but I can deal with that.

Diet has been 100% on track, have even been baking like mad and just give them to my partner to take to work (haven't even had one!)

I need to ensure I exercise more from now on. I was doing a lot of cleaning and gardening at least.

Will post again next week :)

PS- How are you travelling Mummamooshka? Huge congrats on the 5kg! Looking forward to hearing about your third week :)
