Hi all,
My name is Nicole, I am 26 and 154cm tall. I came across this forum as I researched Duromine and I am love reading about everyone's experience and results. I have always had body issues... I have never really opened up about my experience, thoughts and feelings about this, so I thought this may be a good place to start! My mum is an ex-prima ballerina so her whole life she has been weight and body obsessed and I feel like it has rubbed off onto me. I am the oldest of 3 girls and I have grown up comparing myself to my mum and my 2 sisters. Many years ago, my dad came up with a competition - whoever lost the most weight in a month would get $100 (back then this was a lot of money)... I won! I went from a size 12/14 to a size 8/10. This was a good and bad outcome - good because I lost weight and started moving into the healthy weight range for my height, bad because I started weighing myself every day, often many times a day, really messing with my mind. It got so bad that I never went out because I was worried about what people thought of me, and I was too anxious to socialize - I ended up seeing the doctor to monitor my body and a psychologist to work on my mentality. One of the hardest times of my life was when one of my closest gfs took her own life after struggling with anorexia for years... I then took a stand and decided to stop weighing myself and focus on being fit and healthy rather than a certain number on the scale or in clothes. I started creating fitness goals such as running a half marathon (which I have done twice now, I got one more to do this year)! I got engaged in April this year and after we set our wedding date to March next year, I felt that I was in a good enough mental state to work on loosing some weight again... even though I feel like I have always been healthy, I decided to change my eating habits to high protein, very low carbs to allow my body to get into ketosis... after 2 weeks nothing had changed, whilst my fiancé lost about 7kgs in 2 weeks. My old habits started coming back, so I decided to go to the doctor to get some guidance. He said that because I was very close to my optimum weight and as I exercise a lot and eat healthy already I will find it hard to loose weight... he put me onto duromine to help me get a kick start... I have not been able to open up to anyone about duromine and felt like I needed to confirm my results!
