    Hi all,

    I am waiting to hear if I will be starting Xenical and wondered if anyone lived near me?

    It would be great to have some "real life" support from someone going through the same thing - Also to give them support too :)

    Hope to hear from someone?

    Have a lovely weekend all,

    LiSe Xxxx

    Hola again,

    I was just about to ask where you were from, Then noticed it is in the bla on the left ;)

    I see from your pic, You have had an amazing loss of weight - Well done! :D What diet are/were you on?

    I have managed to lose 21lbs loosely following my own version (!) of WW and exercising daily on the Wii Fit :)
    Then I plataeued (Sp?) so sort of gave up :rolleyes:

    I think you read my previous ramble on the newbie thread about currently seeing the Dr for tests etc for cholesterol/thyroid problems etc.

    I have my bloods on Weds, And depending on the results, May start on Xenical.

    Either way, I hope I start losing weight again soon!

    Hope you had a great weekend,

    LiSe Xxx

    Kewl! Not far at all :bliss:

    Where in Camberley were you? I live near town :)

    Thanks re the 21lbs :D I am still :eek: that I managed it lol

    Sadly, It didn`t last :( So I may start Xenical sometime soon as I have other health issues that are not helping my weight loss!

    Do you work? I am a SAHM and my youngest is 3 yrs old. She goes to nursery 2 full days a week though, So I am looking to going swimming when I can pluck up the courage :sigh: I`ll get in and the water will get out :rolleyes: LOL

    It is great to find someone "local", None of my friends need to diet, refuse to go swimming etc.

    Speak soon,

    I used to live just off the Frimley Road, nr the Esso pertrol staion.
    How long did it take to lose 21lbs? I'll be over the moon if i achieve that!
    I have a 3 year old boy who goes to nursery 5 mornings and have been SAHM since having him, starting a full time job in a few weeks as a carer, going to be doing 4 nights, 10 hours each! which i hope i can manage!
    None of my friends need to diet either, my sister who is 11 months younger than me is a size 6 and my best friend is a size 10... v unfair! but neither have children so there time will come haha!
    If you want to go swimming (brings me out in a sweat thinking about it!) we can go together, i will if u will kind of thing haha

    Small world eh?! I grew up in Frimley.

    Eeek @ nights :eek: I did that for 6 months and it was a killer! I figured I could catch up on sleep in the day, But it never really happened and I would just plod off to work exhausted. Whereabouts will you be working? I was a night hotel receptionist and worked 11-7 on my own.

    The weight loss amazingly only took a couple of months - Say 2-3 ? I worked over xmas for some pocket money and I think that was the catalyst so when I realised I had lost the weight it spurred me on to continue. I did 30 mins on the Wii Fit every day and went on a low fat diet.

    I am hoping that by having a break after stopping losing, My body will start losing again. I am more than likely going to have to start taking cholesterol tablets which will mean giving up feeding my little girl, in which case I have told the Dr I would like to try the Xenical too.

    I think the fact that I HAVE lost weight myself already and that I have medical conditions that hinder my weight loss ( I have an underactive thyroid and PCOS) and that I need to get healthy will mean that my Dr will let me try them. If they don`t work out, I can always stop right?

    Oh to be a size 6 or 10 - What is that?? I don`t think I know? :rolleyes: lol

    We should meet up for a brew and a chat sometime, I have the children from hell home for Easter, So would have to be after - Not sure if you can do that if you`re working nights?

    Speak soon,

    LiSe Xxx

    The work is local and i'll be doing 9pm - 7am eeek! I am allowed sleep when the patient is asleep so that will help loads! Also looking at putting my son in nursery 2 full days so i can get some decent sleep. Looking around a nursery tomorrow so hopefully i will like it!

    Yeah a brew sounds good, altho it'll have to be without milk and sugar as of 2moro haha, as I am starting Lipotrim, sounds ideal for me, so fingers crossed it works! Yeah after the hols is good for me, prob a monday is best as i'm not working sunday nights

    jo x

    Yeah i'm sure the doc will give u them especially as u have other conditions making it harder for u. You're right after having a break u will def start losing again.
