    Hi guys well this is my first day on Duromine so not much to tell have not had any side effects yet but early days.
    So a little about me I have battled to stay at my ideal weight 90kgs for 10+ years in fact hard to remember what it was to weigh 90. I left high school at 87 kgs and not an ounce of fat on me. Over the years it slowly crept and it seems ever since i hit 100kgs i have battled to get it back down. Over the years have tried optifast, Dietitians, Weight Watchers and Dukan all with varying success but never sustainable. Each time I not only gained it all back but added extra as well.
    So yesterday I weighed in after not checking my weight in a few months and I had hit 120kgs I was absolutely shocked and as you can imagine depressed. By morning tea though I had arranged an appointment to see my doctor and she suggested Duromine 30mg which i had never heard of before.
    I have been given enough for 2 months so my aim is to kick start my weight loss and hopefully turn my new healthy eating and exercise into a habit for life. I have always carried my weight well being a male at 180cms tall broad and muscular but this year i have really noticed how much it has affected me physically and now mentally. All my gain has mainly been around stomach and only a few tops now fit me and all jeans are worn with button undone and belt at maximum. I have never been more motivated in my life and with my first child due in October I really have a reason to succeed.
    I hope I have not bored you all I look forward to reading through the forums searching for advice and hopefully keeping you entertained on my journey

    Cheers Scott

    Now 120.2kgs
    Aim 90-95kgs

    Hi Kate thank you for the welcome have to say a little intimidating being in the minority as a male here.
    Just a quick update today once again not many side effects but I did have a shocking sleep but so did wife as being pregnant is causing some discomfort. So not sure if it was the Duromine or the wife repositioning every 5 minutes.
    I have felt bloated today not sure if others have had this happen and boy I have visited the toilet a lot...
    I am off to the dawn service in the morning so must go as I attempt to get a solid sleep fingers crossed..
