    Thanks yours is the diary that has inspired me! I have previously lost 7 n a half stone, put it all back on and some. This is my first time on orlistat so I'm hoping it will teach me the right way. Trying eggs for the first time today, got my fingers crossed I'm ok with them! Got a chest infection and I'm struggling to eat as don't have any appetite so going to try scrambled eggs x

    Thank you, you have been a huge inspiration! My name's Rebecca and this is my first time using orlistat, done every diet! The most weight I have lost is 7 & half stone maintained that for about 4 years then it creapt back on and some. I'm hoping this time I can make a lifestyle change. So here goes, trying eggs for the first time today. Had a crumpet soaked in egg and fried with frylight a weightwatchers sausage, mushrooms, baked beans and a plum tomato. All under 5g per item but only just over 3g fat for the meal, can I have a yogurt thats 3g and include that so I'm nearer the 15 per meal? Am I on the right track with that? X

    Ahhh bless you, that's lovely to hear! :-) Yep you can do that, but don't worry if you're nowhere near the 15gm, remember the less fat the better. :-)
    I've always found eggs to be fine, I have omlettes or banana pancakes (banana egg) when I'm hormonal and hungry as I find if I have eggs for breakfast I'm not hungry till way past lunchtime. But that's just me!
    Keep updating your diary, it will inspire yourself as well as others :-)
    I'd lost 4 stonw between last May -November and then started messing around and put a stone back on..... but I'm getting it back off and I know this works so I've got hope which is something I never had before because I'm just so rubbish at diets!!
    If you're on my fitness pal, hook me up! Im pudders27. Xx

    Your diary was a fab read made me giggle loved your old phone with.all.the.........'s lol soooooo funny. I was struggling with the fat at 15 per meal (never thought that would happen). I m hoping eggs are ok because they keep me full too, also love banana omelette, with a little cinnamon powder they are yummy. Attempting meatballs in tomatoes for tea, have made tomato sauce with everything although today found lighter than light mayo and also bisto best gravy and that's one thing I've missed. Hoping to try a shepherds pie tomorrow now I have that with extra lean mince. Not sure how that will go but it's all been trial and error. Now will go try find you on mfp thanks so much for all your kind words and help so far x

    Love meatballs! It's funny, when I started, I thought it would all be salad and jacket potatoes but as you now know, you can still eat soooo much and the family don't even have to realise.. (although my son moans about the low fat sausages!).... have a lovely weekend. Xx

    My OH hasn't realised anything yet other than his work suit is getting baggy, asked what I've done to it lol, haven't told any one yet as don't want people to think oh there's another diet she's failed at! Not sure how to find people on mfp? Just had a look and all I could find was Facebook or email? I'm not very tech savvy to say the least lol. Anyway I'm on as bexster71 if you know what you are doing! Have a great weekend x

    Had a sneaky weigh in this morning and had sts (my weigh in is not until Friday) feel a little fed up but won't weigh in in between weigh ins again. I know this week maybe won't be great as I'm not hitting my calories with being ill I've no appetite. I did have meatballs in tomato sauce with pasta last night, that was lovely and haven't had any effects from the eggs from yesterday yet so keeping my fingers crossed x

    Lol... I had a sneaky one too and apparently I'm up 2lbs...lol..... ignore it.... completely disregard it amd don't do it again! Lol...
    I always feel rubbish when I do and have now learnt that the results are much more pleasing when I stick to weeekly. My weigh on day in Monday morning so I'll see what thay says.
    I've been under amd over my calorie allowance a couple of days, (over because of wine!!) But I did a step class last weds night and actually hurt myself so I figured I may be holding onto water... regardless there's no logical reason why I would have put on 2lbs between monday and Friday. ....therefore its being ignored and I've promised not to do it again! :-)

    I hope you didn't hurt yourself too much? I used to love step class, maybe once I've lost a bit of weight I can do more like that again (don't like exercising in public at the moment) I have a rower at home and I walk my 2 basset hounds every day. Need to up what I'm doing when I'm feeling a little better. Pinky promise no more sneaky weigh ins lol x

    I think I've just got a bit of fluid of the knee... it was pretty intense! Lol..
    Hey...daily weigh ins work for some, there are are really successful losers on here that weigh daily, but just not for me. I find it disappointing either way by the ed of the week.. I like to gey on an see a big loss! ;-)

    I'm too disappointed if it doesnt show a loss, I've done daily weigh ins and I got obsessed to the point I nearly stopped eating just to try get a loss every day. Mad! So just the weekly weigh in now. Wish I could leave it a month and just get weighed at doctors but I need to know I'm doing ok and it's working. Think they would say I told you so if I fail and the doctor was twice as big as me x

    Had a Hairy Dieters Smoked Paprika sauce pouch today, less than 100 cals for half and I think 1.9gm fat per 100. Really nice change although not cheap so won't be having it every night! Had it with chicken, rice and roasted veg. Yummy yummy x
