Hello and nice to meet you! I hope you find some support and inspiration from the forums. I can understand why you don't have motivation, you're a mum of three AND your working outside the home full time AND you've been very ill. little wonder. Time to do the only thing mothers don't know how to do....wait for it....*whispers* look after yourself! BUT, I know, easier said than done.
A few things I've learnt along the way:-
1) Duromine - given you've had that before, I'm guessing you know about it, but for me, I had trouble sleeping and was totally wired (my main problem) however it helped to suppress my appetite and it did help me lose weight. It also made be cranky and irritable (not so hot for my family, I'm guessing, but this was a short term problem only) overall, I think, if under doctors orders and supervision, it may help then, why not!
HOWEVER, nothing beats:-
2) Good old fashioned healthly eathing, portion control, cutting out junk completely, drinking water and regular physical activity.
3) If only it was as easy to achieve as it is to "know" we wouldn't all be here!!!
If you are having trouble losing weight, have you had your thyroid function tested?
Good luck and keep us updated!
