My name is Candice im 165cm tall with a starting weight of 105kgs , through word of mouth i heard alot of success stories so i went and asked my Dr for it and she started me out on 15mg for the 1st month (there is alot of in between but want to keep it short for your reading).
So ive read on here that taking it EARLY in the morning is the best option so took my first 1 at 6:30am and went back to sleep till 8, atm im feeling pumped and no side effects as of yet.
Ate breakfast as normal and took a multivitamin. Hoping to get a walk in this afternoon

Good. I'm glad you're trying to keep it stable. But I'd suggest you to not weigh yourslef that soon. Better to stand on scales once per month - the results are more obvious;)
Move on and stay strong, darling!

so i have started my 2 week yesterday im down 3 or 4 kgs i had some scale issues and had to by some new 1s, im sleeping great, i dnt give food a second thought although im finding i need to control my potions lil more than when i started im still thinking the 30mg would be better for me but i do need to finish this months supply first, i lack motivation and in the past i have put all the weight back on so this time round ive started celebrating every kg lost and not with food because i have done that in the past and sabotaged myself, but with buying a gift for myself and that keeps me working towards my next kilo, its like a lil trophy 1 guess something i can touch and look at, i just brought myself some jeans a size i would of thought in the past would be a struggle to put on and uncomfortable to wear but nope slipped them on and they fit perfectly loving life atm.

It is the best reward solution - buying new things instead of yummies;)
Especially if it is clothes and you have to buy smaller size)))
I'm rpoud of you, Candice!

Don't be. Just keep going, you have your regime, so if appetite shows up, just 'cheat' it with fruit or yogurt = Yummy+energy+little calories.

I'm also a bit scared of weighing in after the holiday period!
Must feel so good to be under 100! I want that so badly!!

But don't worry! Look at Tash, proving that it's possible to get under 100.
