Hi everyone,

So I'll start with myself, I'm 22 years old, 165cm tall and weigh 90kg, I put on 20 in 2 years due to depression and a break up with a long term partner,

I started to do a paleo diet 7 months ago, it was great, I lost some weigh but kept creepy back up the next week, I work 2 very physical jobs, some days my muscles are sore and I'm just too tired to go to the gym,

It went and saw my doctor, cause I'm scared of getting diabetes, as my nan and my dad has it, well she put me on 15mg duromine, she said it should work as I'm already doing everything as is, well it's been just over 2weeks, I feel energised during the day, I don't feel hungry, to the point Iv gotta remind myself to eat, sometimes I feel I'll be sick if I eat, so I would have a meal replacement shake, just to have something in my stomach, my sleeping is good, I drink lots of water, no coffee, only green tea,
Well other then all that I'm still a solid 90kgs, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong?

My aim was to lose 10-20kgs and I'll be happy, I often get teased for my weight, cause I look pregnant, but I'm not, I have everything else average to skinny but my belly just looks pregnant, please can any one help me!!! :(

My Dr gave me 40mg and I'm 69kgs!!
I was pretty wrapped with that! I've lost 1.5kgs in 4 day, side effects have been pretty good! I haven't had time to exercise yet so it may help more if I do that!!maybe see if you can get a higher dose to get you moving!!

Yea I got my blood test done before she have them to me, I had low calcium, low b12 and high protien, she suggested me a few things to fix it and Iv been doing that but I'll have to get another blood test to see lol, and yea. Iv always been a healthy eater, I don't drink coffee and lots of green tea and water, I eat lots of the nuts and seeds, like pumpkin seed ect, and lots of fruit and vegs, most of the food I eat is non processed or made by hand, so I'm just so confused on what's going on, I had the implanon in but the course was up so got it removed and I know that puts on weigh so the wouldn't of help while I was depressed lol, and now I'm on the pill, does the pill effect it in any way?


Ps sorry for any spelling errors I'm on my phone and autocorretion hates me

It's a coincidence probably. The process was launched and even though you went off the pills, you started losing weight. Not mentioning that when you are sick, your body needs energy to fight the illness. And I am sure you are now keeping the diet, right? Hence your weight loss. I'll tell you one secret: people lose weight when they eat less. Those stories "I tried everything, hundreds of diets - nothing helped...etc" I don't believe them. Because if you stop eating everything like all the time, the body loses extra weight, well of course if the calorie intake is less than calorie consumption. It just takes time, and people not always realize that they eat junk food here and there.

Your example shows that you can lose weight without the pills, just make up a good diet / exercise plan and have patience.
Take care! ;)
