So I've been on Metermine 30mg for 2 weeks as of tomorrow..

I'm down to 81.8kg from 84kgs and have been stuck at 81.8 for like 4 days now..

I has a really great 2-3 days on it and now I just feel normal again..

I walk a fair bit in general not so much serious exercise but tend to do a fair bit of walking around shops, to and from school round the house and garden..

Eating seems to be the biggest issue for me. I can't seem to get into a good eating pattern, I eat lots of salads and chicken and drink sooooo much water..

Is it normal to plateau so soon?

Hi, Cuppie
Yes it's pretty normal. Everybody is different. At first your body starts losing weight rapidly, when you take the pills, keep a diet and exercise. But after some time (couple of days, a week, two weeks, depends) it suddenly stops, because it is in shock. Any changes in your usual regime are shock for your body. So it wants to keep this weight because it always needs deposits "just in case" you will not have the access to food one day. All I can say - wait for a month and keep going. You'll see you will lose more weight after a while. Good luck!
