My name is Carly, I'm 18 years old from Darwin, Australia. Over the last three or so years (year 11, year 12 and my gap year) I have put on around 20kg which I would now like to lose. My father has just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and my mother has been yoyo dieting her entire life.
My goal is to feel happy and healthy - the last time I remember feeling that way was when I weighed around 70kg. At 90kg, I'd like to get back to that weight and finally feel good about myself once again. I'm sick of feeling like I can't leave the house, I'm sick of ridicule and horrible looks... I'm sick of myself the way I am.
I should tell you that for the past 18 months, while I have been living out of home, I've tried everything. Tony Ferguson, Optislim or whatever, all those crazy detox diets, increased exercise and decreased food intake, a fully vegan diet, a totally raw diet, vegetarian, Dukan diet... everything. Nothing worked at all - I ended up putting on weight instead! Thyroid problems have been ruled out, as have all of the other weight gain-related problems. It mostly comes down to the fact that I lack motivation, I think - if I don't see results within 2 - 4 weeks, I give up. Which is why I'd like to start on Duromine.
I feel like Duromine would help kickstart things - show me the results I want to see, as well as give me confidence and the motivation to take it further. I have been on a healthy eating plan for the past month and whilst it makes me feel great, there have been no results - even with regular vigorous exercise!!! It's so frustrating, I could cry.
All in all, I'd like to hear about how Duromine made you feel when you first started on it... Not physically, but mentally. Did it help you gain motivation? That's all I'm looking for here!!!
Thank you for reading!
Oh..! One last thing - my regular doctor is at a medical clinic type facility which is known for it's "anti-amphetamines" policy.. I was hoping that someone could tell me a place in Darwin where I can go to be prescribed with Duromine?? Thank you!
