I had to find your thread and the questions is How did it go at the doctor's? Did you get the pills prescribed? Are you already in?
Not sure if this counts as a day because I didn’t end up taking duromine today as I had wanted to see if it would make a difference.
Hunger and portions were still down however it felt like any other day.
Today I took Duromine later than any other day at approximately 10am. I skipped breakfast as I knew I was going out to lunch and probably won’t be constricting portions or calories like at home.
By lunch time I felt slightly lightheaded and was very zoned out, but my hunger was practically gone. My partner ended up finishing my meal as I couldn’t even eat half.
My energy was up but also felt anxious. I have had anxiety quite bad in the past and even needed medication for it at one stage, this was easy to deal with in comparison. The normal butterflies in my stomach and slight overthinking. I usually get this same reaction when I drink coffee.
Dinner today was only a very small portion and was satisfied after eating it. My sleep, however, was very restless, went to bed later than normal and found myself waking up every hour or so.
Back to work today, meaning I had the duromine at the normal time of 7:30am. I woke up feeling quite anxious and emotional. I kept overthinking every little thing and even having a discussion about my upcoming birthday made me feel slightly anxious and a little bit sad, for no reason at all. Not sure if it’s just hormones though.
By lunch time I felt no hunger at all. None. Food wasn’t even a thought on my mind. I kept my water up drinking 1.5 litres by 1pm. I made myself eat a small portion of lunch and struggled to keep myself eating. Dinner was the same.
Today was the first day I also weighed myself. I’ve only lost -0.9kg so far. Im not entirely disappointed as I know I’m currently not doing exercise and my diet hasn’t been all that healthy. Definitely will be making more of an effort in week 2.
I have begun tracking my calories, not weighing the food though but scanning most packets if I can.
I’m going to start doing regular exercise of a night-time, maybe even in the morning also if I can find the energy. I think because I’m so sedentary at the moment this might be a big reason as to why I’m not experiencing dramatic weight loss.
Another silly thought I had was if my other medication might be affecting the way the duromine works, I am currently taking iron supplements, magnesium supplements, immune system boosters and the pill. Not sure if any of these would make a difference though.
I will keep you all updated.
