I am new to this site and wanted to start my own thread to update each day/week about how I am going.
I am determined to make some changes in my life this year.
This is my story
I am 42 years old
Single mother of 3 teens and full time carer for the oldest who is disabled.
I weigh 128.2kg and am 169cm tall. Need to lose at least 50kg's.
I have severe obstructive sleep apnoea, diabetes type 2 and high blood pressure - all of which my Dr believes could be relieved by weight loss.
I have tried so many things and so many times with no success, which is why I have finally succumbed to trying duromine (metermine).
I am hardly ever hungry.
I am always tired ( think this is due to sleep apnoea and diabetes - which I am treating but it does not seem to be improving).
Well, today is day 1 on metermine for me... Took it about 5.30am this morning.
I have read a lot of your posts (not all though), I don't appear to be having any side affects - no headaches or palpitations, although I do feel a little strange... I am actually still really tired and actually feeling a little hungry which is unusual for me. I think I may go make a sandwich for lunch...
All the best to everyone and look forward to getting to know some of you better.
