Nicks progress

Postby mumnbub » Tue Dec 09, 2008 6:08 pm

Ok, So I have had many ups and downs since I started my life change. I was 98kg and have managed to get down to 82.4kg but am back up to 83.9kg- this happened in the last few weeks :oops:
So saw my doctor and have a script for duromine 30, will start that tomorrow and see how I go. Basically when I am on track I eat really well, Over the past 12 months I have learnt to eat the right balance and exercise enough, but...... I cant seem to controle my mid meals snacking- the moment I feel hungry I go for the things i like, not always unhealthy but when you eat enough healthy food it can still be unhealthy.So I needed to take control now before I completly fall apart.

So I will take control of my life again. I will take it one day at a time, one meal at a time, one workout at a time and I WILL get there! I am giving myself 3 months to lose this weight for good.

putting on 1.5kg is nothing to be ashamed about mumnbub. Are you lacking items that motivate you? Such as clothes you want to fit into, or pictures of the body you want to be in etc? I'm sure duromine will help. Is that a female only drug?

Hi Gordz, Duromine is a weight loss drug available to anyone through your doctor. Is not cheap but it suppreses your apetite. Has plenty of side effects as discussed in other forums on this site but I decided it is worth the risk for me- will just keep an eye open and stop if i need to.

So yesterday was my first day on Duromine and it went well. Drunk SOOOOO much water, felt like i would explode but was still thirsty. I ate: B fruit smoothy L 2 sushi rolls D 1 chicken lovely leg and 1 cup veggies.
By 4pm I started to develop a headache, by 6pm It was really bad so took some panadol and laid on the couch. Once Eric was in bed I started to fall asleep so was in bed by 7:30 (still had a headache). I woke up at about 1:30am and bearly got any sleep after that, I just could not go back to sleep!

I was curiouse this morning so hoped on the scales (i know i should not have) and it said I was 83kg- thats 900g less then Mondays weigh in. But will ignore that result as its only Mondays results that count. Am looking forward to weigh in now- first time in weeks!

Good on you, Nick! I think posting before photos is a great idea. As Gordz said, you'll be glad when you have a few more photos to compare them with! I particularly like the last photo with the baby in the foreground. How cute!

You're doing really well so far. I need to take a leaf out of your book and start drinking more water too. Sorry to hear you had such a bad headache.

The 900g loss is great news! Keep up the good work!

Am now starting my third day on duromine- I feel good and in control. Last night I went out to a chinese restrant for a christmas party and managed to stop eating when i knew I had eaten enough. The downside to the tablets is that I did not feel full, did not have the usual I have eaten feelings so I had to rely on just knowing how much to eat before eating too much.
Still have not had any coffee which is good- 2 whole days!
Felt so good last night getting ready to go out, I felt like a woman not just a mother- have not felt like that in a long time.

Weigh in day is not far away, just need to make it through the weekend and hopefully there will be a good result come Monday morning.

I have had a great day- full of energy despite my late night and few to many drinks. I ended up spring cleaning the living areas then doing 'Ultimate Fat Burner' DVD which OMG that requires energy, its easy to see how they came up with the title. By 10am I had already done 10000 steps and that was without leaving the house!
Went to the shops and had lunch- 2 sushi rolls (have had them every day since starting duromine) and walked a fair bit around the shops before heading home. The afternoon has been nothing special- normal amount of energy this afternoon, but am starting to feel tired now which is not surprising after last night.

B- fruit smoothy
L- 2 sushi rolls
D- fish with 1 cup steamed veggies
snack- 1 coffee (brother in law offered as seeing as i was not in a hurry I had one but really did not enjoy it)

Will see how my sleep goes- if i sleep well then its been a perfect day on duromine :)

I think its about time i stopped eating sushi for lunch- problem is when i go out now i walk into the food court and just see FAT everywhere and hate sifting through it all for the healthy stuff so go strait to the sushi bar and have that. Also make it at home most days but am starting to get over it so will have something different.

Today has been a great day. Went for my walk this morning nice and early, we were up just before 4:30 so left by 5am. When bub went down for a nap I did my workout dvd and finished it today- had sweat literally dripping off me, it was so grose but felt soooo good :)

So far eaten
b- fruit smoothy
l- 2 sushi rolls
d- plan on having some steamed veggies with a bit of mustard chicken

Cant believe how much water I have been drinking- have water bottles everywhere as its too much effort to keep filling up a cup every 5 min.

Weigh in day is tomorrow- I think I might just have lost what i had gained last week, maybe more if i am really lucky. Cant expect to much when I started duromine mid week and had big night out of friday. But whatever happens i am happy with how things are going. Its been a while since i have felt so positive.

Am really happy today as i weighed in and lost all of what i had gained over the past 2 weeks. I am feeling fantastic and actually believe that I will reach my goal instead of just really really hoping. I might even reach my goal of getting under 80kg by new years, will be cutting it close but its not impossible.

I dont have time to do much exercise today or tomorrow as I have to go to class. I leave early to drop my son off at day care then catch the train into Milton then by the time i finish that and catch train home its getting too late in the day. although now that my shows are not on for a while I could do a workout when bub goes to bed at 7pm- i guess it depends on if i still have energy by that time
