Currently on day 65 on duromine to to date have lost just under 20KG, Now its not ideal to lose that much weight so fast, However i did do a massive life style change.... I changed my diet in every way... No Dairy and everything must be in portion size.... I even keep a diary of everything i eat every day and how many calories i in take each day.

A bit about my past... I packed on 30KG after having my son nearly 4 year ago... I did not realise the weight till i started getting tired and having to many mood swings.... I found it hard to be with my Husband in a romantic kind of way (even tho he never had an issue) and also found it hard to play with my son... I tried all the shakes flat blaster and everything... I just found i was more hungry and wanted to eat everything.... It was not until i seen the scale tip to a 90KG (keeping in mind i am just under 5 ft) thats when i knew something had to be done... I use to be a size 10 i went up to a size 22 in some T-shirts... So off to my docs i went and he put me on 40MG duromine first off and then after my first month put me on to 30MG, With in the first month i lost 11KG with just diet change alone.... The other month i lost another 9KG with diet change and exercise..... I dont work out as much as i should but as we all know being a mum and a wife can take its toll on your day to day life

I would not recommend losing this much weight in that amount of time.... But i am very determined to keep going even after i come off duromine.... I dont want to go back to being that size again.... I still have another 10 - 12 KG to lose and i will be back to pre pregancey weight.

Gee wiz that's amazing! I am 2 days into week 2 and I have lost 5 kilos although all of that went in week 1 at the start I was drinking mountains of water now I only drink about 1.5 lts.. I need a way to make myself want to drink more than this. Also this week I've been having sultana bran cereal with milk for breakfast rather than natural museli and yoghurt and I find myself snacking on 'low fat' or '99percent fat free' musli bars rather than fruit.. is there anything that will make me feel a little bit naughty when I eat it but its still not bad?

Hello TJDewan,
You are right, it is not recommended to lose that much during the first month. Well, I am actually surprised the doc prescribed you 40mg - the largest dose at once. It's better to begin with the smallest...Ok.
I see you are determined and purposeful, but losing that much in a short time may cause you some issue. You see, I am afraid you can put on weight after you finish the pills. Because this dose eliminates your hunger, but what happens, when there is nothing to help you with your cravings? I might be mistaken and your eating habits changed so that you can eat healthy meals only. Sorry if I'm wrong.
I have one question for you - How do you feel these days? Is it hard dieting? I mean, do you feel discomfort when you don't eat those foods you used to eat before the therapy?
If you feel fine, then I am happy to tell - you can achieve your goal weight easily!:)

Hi kate,

I do agree losing that much weight it can come back fast and even double, however I do feel that I can fight those craving even now I don't want all the old food I tend to feel bloated and sick like I have over eaten..... However when I have all healthy days I feel in control and on top of everything, don't get me wrong tho there are days where I want to eat bad foods but I don't over do it I might have a mini choc bar and that's it I am done for a while......I have never felt so good I am full of energy and play with my son everyday..... Even tho hubby never stopped loving me but even he is happier that I am becoming the old me happy and full of life..... But I really do recommend any one reading this, yes I lost a lot of weight really quick as mentioned u should not lose it this fast but if u can and keep it off u will feel so much better
