    I'm still currently on it, but weaning.

    Five weeks ago I started eating really healthy and working out a little. I have lost about 8 pounds in those five weeks. But the mirt made me gain 32 so I have a long way to go. It's a start though! Didn't think I was going to be able to lose weight while on mirt.

      It definitely does! It’s also been hard dieting because I feel hungry all the time and with fewer calories everyday it’s hard to resist snacking. But after almost 6 weeks of eating clean and light exercise I still feel awful. My anxiety is worse and I am slowly wanting to become housebound again. It’s like I keep taking steps backward and it’s really depressing.

    Hi all 

    I’m 18 months Mirt free now but this Mirt W/d’s business is something none of us on here will ever forget so for me as soon as I’d stopped the Mirt / Cold Turkey,  I couldn’t face eating anything processed. Everything tasted so sweet, sickly, so the 3 Stone I’d put on I quickly lost, and whilst being poorly with w/d’s I lost half of it in 8 weeks. 

    My bad eating habits have gone and I’m back to the healthy 9-1/2 stone and 5:5. 

    I’m feeling myself again and that’s all that ever worried me, thinking I was going to be this nervous wreck forever.  

    I’m stronger now than I’ve ever been and that’s because I’ve had to hold onto life, so tight for a long while, the W/d’s seem to take forever but when it’s your time, and you’ve healed, things begin to look beautiful, more than before, so it’s chin up and chest out until then . Good luck
