Hi :)
I had my son may last year , I gained about 14kgs I weighed 84kgs the day after I gave birth .... I lost about 5 kgs straight away , but obviously it was just fluid lol... the remainder didn't budge and I felt so disgusting ... I started Duromine/generic brand in dec 13 , by mid January I was down to 71kgs, I stopped for a while to have a break from the tablets , I begun again around mid feb and lost another 3 kgs .. only to put it back on again .. so here we are again back on the tabs .... day 3 and I lost 2.1kgs so now I weigh 68kgs... I am walking everyday for an hr to the point where sweat is dripping off me , such a lovely look lol

My goal was to be be 65 by my 30th Birthday in april but that doesn't seem likely ..but we will see.

You may think I am light but my body is horrible after having 3 kids, I know it will never be the same again , I just want to feel and look good .

Hi, bubbles!
Yes, I understand you so well. After having kids our body never be the same...well, I try to see positive moments in it - you have your beautiful angels! And if you workout and take care of your body, it actually can look better, close to the one you wish to have. It's not easy, well, who said it would be easy?;)
But I think you can do it, since you've already lost weight. Give it some time!

You can do it! Good for you with the exercise as well. I'm walking too.....but not as much as you. I'm building myself up to longer walks. When's your Birthday? I'm an April girl too!

Yes, music helps a lot. Me too, I hated exercises first, but then I hired a trainer, so he did most of it lol I mean he forced me to do, so I had to exercise. Unfortunately it's pretty expensive... But now I keep exercising from time to time on my own, feel great because it's like work for me now)) Just got used to it
Anyways, everybody's different and finds his bets way to train the body. Walks are good too. Hope you feel fine and enjoy the nature while walking outside!
ps. I was on the pills for a year (couple of breaks) and the next year was struggling with the rest weight I had to lose, and it was very hard for me! Oh well, I went through this and my weight is stable now.

I'm the 11th. I've only been back on them for 12 days. I had lots of problems with side effects. With the 30 mg it was lots of headaches for days and days. I drank 3-4 liters of water a day but it didn't help. So I went off them. It was 3 months later and I decided to try them again. I didn't get any headaches this time. So I'm staying on them.

It is wonderful news!
I suffer migrains most of the time, but when I was on Duromine, they appeared more frequently..so I used Ibuprofen.. it usually helps me.
Some users say that water does help in this case. I'm not sure, but maybe this helps you too.
I hope headaches will not disturb you until the end of therapy!

Good day, darling!
