    Hi everybody, I'm Emma. I've been browsing this forum for quite a while, but I've finally taken the plunge to join up and start posting!

    I've been prescribed Xenical, and started taking them today. I'm hoping to make some friends and find some support here, as I've dieted for years but always lose motivation a few weeks in.

    A little about me:

    I'm 20 years old, from South Tyneside, and I study Psychology at Swansea University. I've been overweight since the age of 8ish, but I've ballooned in the last two years, gaining a disgusting 45lbs, so I'm now tipping the scales at 230lbs (16st 6lbs).

    I also suffer from depression, and due to this, I was sleeping all day and staying up all night, eating my main meals in the middle of the night, and sometimes not even eating at all. I know this has to change, so I'm determined to overhaul my whole lifestyle to be healthier and happier.

    Today is the first day of the rest of my life, and I'm feeling hopeful. I'm looking forward to getting to know a lot of new people and learning some hints and tips to make sure I achieve my goals. :)

    Thanks to the both of you for the kind welcome :)

    I've been on Xenical for 5 days now, so I still have a long way to go, but hopefully in a few months I'll be seeing some fantastic results like you Kiira!

    A six stone weight loss is truly inspirational, you must be over the moon! Congratulations :D
