Hi, I started on Duromine today well the generic brand metermine. I have tried many diets only to fall back into the same bad habbits. I'm studing and working and find i skip meals, snack on junk when studying and my meal portions are way to big. I know the mistakes i make but dont seem able to break them. So as a last resort i have got the prescribtion from my GP (with i lot of questioning from the doctor and a lot of begging from me) they dont give prescriptions easily. i am just over the average BMI so classed as overweight, but my height does help me hide the weight. I dont remember a time when i have actually been happy with my body size except post pubity. So anyways to help me stick to this i have joined this site to help me record and gain inspiration from others storys.
current weight - 84kg
height - 176cm
BMI - 27.1
GOAL WEIGHT - 75kg
Day ! - Woke up for work at 4:30 so took Metermine first thing with my breakfast. I'm told Metermine keeps you awake and by some of the forums here it is common, so lucky for me in a way i'm an early riser. I was expecting the headaches and dizziness today but didnt happen. However the 'Dry mouth' i did get started about 11am and is constant. On the bright side i've been drinking pleanty of water but on the negative to that i have to go to the toilet every half hour
large water intake is recommended so i can deal with the dry mouth. had breaky fruit and yogurt then an apple for morning tea, i did feel very hungry by luch at 12:30 but after having 1 salad sandwich i was feeling very full, did not snack once i got home from work like i usually do, i will still full, possibly from all the water im drinking. so a small portioned dinner tonight and cross my fingers i can sleep.
