    My journey to a new me....

    So I started following slimming world at home on Tuesday! Today during a routine pcos appointment with my doctor he's suggested I try xenical for three months! He's stipulated that I have to lose 10% of my weight in three months and go for monthly weigh ins in these 3 months!

    I'm hoping these work, after reading done of the threads on here I'm hoping to unleash the skinny woman hiding within me!

    Took my first blue tablet about 7 just after my tea, which was a grilled chicken salad.

    From the threads on here everyone seems very supportive! Here's to the beginning of my journey and hopefully making friends on here along the way!

    I've set a mini goal at 238 pounds, on Tuesday I was 321 pounds! Once I've got to 238 I will re evaluate! I thought I would break it up to 2 goals then the end wouldn't seem so far away! X

    Hi good luck with your journey. Aloe vera juice cranberry flavour will help with bloating/ wind etc

    I've also read the PCOS responses well to a lower carb way of eating - avoiding wheat and processed foods

    Good idea. I was just 20lbs lighter than you at 301lbs when I started, and am now just under 180lbs, so it can definitely be done. xx

    Well just been shopping to plan the weekends meals! This morning I had a home made fruit salad, really enjoyed this probably due to eating it in the garden! (I'm off work now till the 15th) lunch was a grilled chicken breast with salad! For tea I've got friends round for a BBQ so going to have a home made chicken kebab and possibly a sweet potato jacket!

    I'm feeling good so far, only had three tablets since I got the yesterday, no side effects yet!

    Aloe vera can be bought from a Heath food shop. The cranberry version is better

    Well so far I've been calorie counting for 23 months, and I think I lost about six stone in the first year and the rest a bit more slowly since then. I'm almost where I want to be now, so I'm just taking each half pound or so as it comes! I've basically just counted calories, along with the Orlistat, gradually improving my eating habits I've gone along, rather than all at once. I'd just say count your calories, watch the fat levels, but most importantly eat things you enjoy so you don't feel deprived (of course if you only enjoy pizza and chips that could be a problem, lol). xx

    I'm allergic to cheese so pizza is out for me anyway! I like chips I wouldn't be the size if I didn't like the wrong foods! If I fancy them I'm just gonna use sweet potatoes and fry light! Cokes my worst enemy! I could drink 3 litres a day and think nothing of it! Since Tuesday I have switched to a 500ml bottle of diet coke a day and water!

    Today I bought some lemons and limes, they are currently marinating a jug of water as we speak! Just to give it a little flavour!
