Tired lips

I've been practicing the harmonica for about three weeks now. I can almost get through 'Oh Susanna' with out losing the single note. But I've found that after about ten to fifteen minutes of practice my lips get too tired and I find it really difficult to hold a single note. Is this normal for beginners? Or am I doing something wrong.

Initially I was using the tongue curling method of playing the single note but I read that it makes it difficult down the track when you begin to learn bending notes etc. So recently I've been trying without it and this has led to the tired lips.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm having a lot of fun with this.
