    I was on Xenical last year for a few months, I lost around 19lbs and managed to keep a stone off but have lots more to lose so went back to my docs yesterday and asked for them again.

    Back on the trail :)

    Cheers, going Xenical shopping tonight - it's quite disheartening when most things you pick up you have to put back when you read the packaging!

    Thanks all :)

    I'm well and truly back in the swing, feeling very positive about it still and can't wait to weigh myself on Monday - a day early but I started a day late on Tuesday as I always start diets on Mondays!

    I haven't started exercising yet but didn't want to start both in week one as cutting out all my fave foods AND exercising would have been a bit disheartening for the first week :D Going to try and make myself start the Wii EA active [STRIKE]game[/STRIKE] workout next week!

    Diet:
    Healthy Eating
    I managed to lose 44lbs last year in 7 months after being diagnosed with diabetes type II and being prescribed xenical.
    I must say the side effects were rather unnerving at first if i had eaten too much fat. But i think they partly work because you are so scared of defecating yourself that you daren't eat too much unhealthy food.
    I sort of gave up taking them regularly and have put all that weight back on. So as of tomorrow i am on a calorie controlled diet and taking xenical regularly again. Here's hoping!

    Good luck with the re-start slim104, it's disheartening when you put it back on but at least you know it CAN be done.

    I weighed myself today (6 days in) and I've lost 4lbs so chuffed with that. I've been using one of the online food diaries which has really made a difference as I can see at a glance how much fat/cals I have had that day. The one I use is www.foodfocus.co.uk which is free and very good but there are many others available.
