    Can i add that its best to have a few weeks break in between a 2 months stint or the body adapts to the meds and they stop working.

    This happened to 2 family members confirmed by the dr.

    I've actually decided to do this myself too, as I can't really afford to get my third box for another couple of weeks anyway. My weight loss started to slow down a bit towards the end of the second month, so I was hoping that a break would shake things up again. Glad to have that confirmed!

    This is another progress pic that I thought I'd share....this is me wearing the sane dress, three months apart. You can very clearly see the difference in the way that the dress sits on me

I'm actually wondering whether I might have chronic fatigue syndrome or something though, I've had a couple of days off duromine due to not having the money to get a new box, and I've been feeling so fatigued again, uggggh! Dr has checked my thyroid and run other tests, no obvious causes so far.
    I've had one lot of bloods done so far - but not sure if he did everything. Last year I had problems with cortisol being high. Not sure what is going on with my body atm - I think the spotting I had for a couple of days a few weeks ago was my period?! And that has never happened before.

    I usually eat between 1200 and 1500 calories a day. I also do an intense 1 hour workout most days. It feels as though my body just holds onto everything and takes forever to realise it's okay to let go of some. I've tried having an extra 300 - 400 calories (maintenance amount for me) and I just plateaued instead...not that that is any difference to now anyway!

    You look great! You must also be feeling so much better within yourself. You can start to clean out your wardrobe

    I am always receiving stereotypical comments when I'm overweight, like the doctor who said to me the other day (during DD's appt) when talking about something that was genetic, "...foods like softdrink and juices will cause that". I can't remember the other one from this week - DH might remember as I told him. I don't drink softdrink or juice! I've had two chocolates in the last 6 months (like squares of and it was about 5 months ago). If I go 'off the rails' at the moment that might mean that I eat some rice crackers, some nuts or an extra piece of fruit. So over being tired and waking up tired.

    I REMEMBERED!!! The other comment was from a lady at the gym who was commenting that I was losing the weight. I replied that I was currently on a big plateau and she commented that "Well, it's that time of year" or something close to that, implying that I'd lived it up at Christmas/New Year like everyone else...well, no I didn't have any sweets or treats and stuck to my diet the entire time. She is a lovely lady and would have no idea about my body and what it does so I just let it go but it truly is just a constant ******. My FIL comments constantly how just cutting out bread has helped them lose weight - I've had two sandwiches in the last 6 months and that's because we were travelling last September and it was the only food that was practical.

    Sorry - I'm having a bit of a vent...and a ramble. Why can't I have got a different body???

    Breakfast and Lunch = shake

    Dinner = Either salad or low-gi veg with some sort of lean protein (ie. grilled chicken, roasted meat, etc). More protein if I've worked out that day.

    Snacks = Usually 2-3 portions of fruit depending on if I've worked out that day or not (apples, grapes, strawberries)

    Occasionally = Portion of nuts or some rice crackers if I'm really hungry

    I went off the shakes for a month to see if it was my body going into famine mode, but my body just maintained - hence why it is my 'maintenance diet' once I go off the shakes.
