Over in one of the other sections of the board ("true stories" I think), there's a whole thread for people that have used/are using Duromine. I'm sure if you read through some of those posts, you can find out some more information about it, and how people have felt while they've been taking it and what kind of results they've had.

I personally don't support the use of weightloss drugs, but I think that is a decision that everyone should make for themselves. Don't worry about other people criticising you, you do what YOU feel is necessary and best for your own health. Listen to your doctor and yourself/your body and I'm sure you'll do what is best for you.

Good luck!

Hey!

I started Duromine the day you did, starting weight 90.1kg, goal weight 68kg. I would love to follow your journey with you too! Please keep me posted!

Miss V, I read through a lot of that post (because it is like 56 pages long or something) which is what scared me the most I think.

I am like you in not believing that there is a magic pill for weight loss, but I believe if you are sick, you take meds. If you are depressed, you need anti depressants (believe me, without anti-d's, I would be dead). Medically, I need to a) lose weight and b) take the pills. My thyroid is physically stopping me from losing weight, despite my efforts with my intake and output.

Thanks everyone for the support. I've been on Duromine for 6 days now and I feel fabulous! Not one side effect to note, except maybe getting a lot less sleep than usual, which has not bothered me as I am never tired through the day. But that settled down after 4 days and I feel great. In the 6 days, I have lost 1.1kg on them, so I hope to continue down that path towards my goal. I will see the doctor again in 2 more week to see what he says about going forward.

**1 week weigh in on Duromine**
Starting weight - 90.1kg (198.6lbs)
Today's weight - 88.3kg (194.6lbs)
Loss of 1.8kg (4lbs)

I am so thrilled with this loss, especially after Christmas and New Year. The Duromine is still giving me no trouble at all. I have resorted back to being tired at a good time at night and wanting to sleep that little bit longer in the morning, but I am still refreshed and clear thinking through the day.

If anything, my keenness to exercise has diminished a fair bit and I am having to really push myself to get out there and do my exercise. I do feel better after I have done it, but my excitement to get out there is very low now.

And on a side note - I jogged tonight on the treadmill for 2.5 minutes and then 2 minutes between walks....and I felt calm and relaxed :mrgreen: . When I used to jog on the treadmill, I would push myself so much that I would panic and feel like I was drowning. My heart would constrict and my breathing would become laboured but tonight, the only part hurting was my legs and I pushed myself without going overboard. And it felt really good! I hope to build up on these times until I can run a few miles at a time!

I am looking forward to weighing in next week to see if the the trend continues. I am hoping this isn't a fluke....beginners luck. :?

Thanks for reading.

Congratulations on your loss, 1.8kgs is an excellent loss!

I'm glad you're not experiencing any side effects from the medication. My previous post was not intended to put you down or criticise your decision, I was simply saying it's not something that I'd choose to do, but obviously everyone is entitled to make their own choices about their bodies! Everyone here uses different methods to lose weight - you just have to find the one that works best for you and stick with it :)

Keep up the good work on the treadmill, I'm sure you'll be running marathons in no time! If you don't feel too motivated to exercise, maybe you could mix it up a little and try something new? Sometimes a change in routine can increase motivation.

Good luck for this week :)

I really want one too! I've been going to a friend's place and a few of us are meeting there and using it together. If I had my own, I'd probably use it quite regularly. Maybe I'll get one when I reach my mini 75kg goal as a way to keep me motivated :) How's everything going for you this week?

Good for you Miss V!!

Yeah, not too bad this week. It isn't official weigh in day yet (Tuesday I will weigh in for Week 2 on Duromine weight) but I did weigh in this morning (as I am in a challenge to lose 10lbs in January) and I have lost 0.5kg since Tuesday morning, so 5 days. I am really looking forward to my weigh in on Tuesday, but for now, I have lost 5.6kg all up.

**Slowly** but surely getting there now (with the help of the Duromine.......I didn't move for the 7 weeks before starting that). And I am really thrilled to be honest!!

No more 90's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

Yes! Kiss those 90s goodbye! You're doing fantastically, keep going! It doesn't matter how long this whole process takes, as long as we get there in the end. Just keep trying, and you're on the right track as long as your weight is going down :) Looking forward to seeing how you go on Tuesday when you weigh in officially!

You're welcome and thank you too!

It's much easier to do this if you've got a few other people out there supporting you, encouraging you, and kicking your ass when necessary. Congratulations on maintaining the 500gm loss, and I look forward to seeing the official result later on :)

Yup, digital scales are the answer. They are really useful and I find them generally more accurate. (That said, I need to get a new set at the moment, as mine are quite old now and they're starting to give me a few different readings, depending on how the scale is positioned on the bathroom floor. :lol: ) You should consider investing in a set!
