    I am now on week 7 of the Xenical godsend..When i first started in sept without the xenical i was 107kg i now weigh 99.6kg, Im still in the size 20 although they are handing down my bum and are generous around the thighs,
    When i went to the doctors yesterday it was a locum and he said before he gave me my 3rd prescription that in the next month i have to lose 3kg otherwise they may stop the xenical. I felt quite deflated as it was because ive been working a lot of hours so haven't been doing much excersize but i have been sticking with the low fat diet and havent had any nasty side effects. I feel really stressed and worried that im not doing enough, One minute im told by my doc im not eating enough calories and then maybe im eating to much calories. I dont want to become disheartened , so any advice would be great, Im currently 15st 9lb and my bmi is going down...Should i rethink my weekly menu ..:sigh:

    I really think the exercise helps. I just go for a walk, but I can really only go when I get home from work so it's now pitch black by the time I get out :(

    Hi

    I've had problems with my docs too. They told me I had to lose 3 lbs every week to continue on it (they also told me I should make some friends but thats another story and one my friends and I laughed about).

    I would say not to worry about it too much right now. You've lost 15 pounds or so in 7 weeks thats a healthy 2 lbs per week.
    WELL DONE!!!!!

    I would say as its a locum you saw you should go back and see your regular doctor next time and you probably will find they will be very happy with how well you've been doing. 3 Kg is also only about 6 or 7 lbs and going on how you've been doing so far you should manage this ok.

    I've been struggling to get going with the exercise but I believe from other posts its really the way to go so I'll promise to do some walking if you do. We'll all get there no matter how long or how fast it takes us.

    Well done on your loss so far.

    (ps maths never was my strong point so I hope my conversions are correct)

    xx

    heya!

    Well done on your fab loss hun! I think that it was really unfair of your doc to put all that pressure on you 3kg is quite alot! My doc is happy with a pound a week!

    Exersice is good for lossing a few extra pounds but you need to have the time to do them and also u need to find some thing you enjoy?

    Have u got any fitness dvds or a wii? You can get some good dance ones from ebay quite cheaply!

    try not to let what the doc said bother you!" you are doing great and you are loosing an thats what counts!

    hope u r well! not seen you round here for ages!

    love katie

    wow you are doing really well!!!
    as Katie said, my dr is happy that i come back to him with a loss, let alone how much it is....
    i would suggest maybe getting your dr to call you (if you can't get back in there) and speak to him, and see if this is what he/she wants you to do.... i always make sure i go back to the same dr, as then there is no difference of opinion.... seems like some dr's love it some dr's hate it (if you get what i mean...)
    maybe if he calls you back he will be able to reassure you that its not the case of 3kg or we are stopping it....

    the exercise i do is wii fit, and i love it...
    i throw in a 20 min session here and a 20 min session there.... sometimes i have time to get in a big one....

    good luck!
    and nice to see you back...
    hope you post loads more.....

    Thank you , you ladies are fantastic to have around, Your words give me a much needed boost. :) I walked to the bus stop today which was 25minutes away, (I usually get 2 buses to work, but only got the main one today) So when i walk back home tonight that will be nearly a good hours walk, I do come on here and check on how everybody is doing,. Work is manic at the moment but when it slows down a bit i will be around here a lot more. Oh and im going swimming both days this weekend :) xx CRG
    Thanks girls

    Walking is a fab way to exercise, soon you may find you can knock off a few more stops off your bus journey, the fitter you get. I walk every day, never used to walk at all before I took on my lovely dog 5 months ago, now I couldn't tell you how far I walk as I winkle pick as a living so I'm walking all day but I feel great and I never get puffed out any more.

    thats not really fair puttin an exact amount on u to loose like that , i think it is a test maybe to c how determin u r, walkin is a good way to shift some pounds, wen i was skinny b4 (quite a long b4 ago lol) i used to walk a hell of a lot, but ive since been ill part of the reason for the weight gain i think

    but walking definaetly helps massively so get any in u can and keep going strong, ur doing great hun,
