    thought it was too good to be true, the scales in my local Boots which I have been weighing myself on, said that I had lost 10lbs when I had my first weeks weigh in, then I went back to weigh myself the week after, and the scales were out of order, so I weighed myself on another branch of Boots' scales and it said that I had put on 9lb in a week despite excercising and eating well within my calorie/fat allowance! so I decided to weigh myself on the scales in tescos, and they are now showing that I have lost 4lb from the first time I weighed myself, so I think the scales (which are out of order in Boots) that I had the impressive 10b weight loss on, must have been wrong, and I have in fact only lost 4lbs, oh well, going back to my doctors on Monday, and will get weighed there, I was too scared to look at the scales when she weighed me on the day I got the xenical, so I am hoping it will show the true weight loss I have had in 4 weeks. Watch this space - I will report back, lol

    either the scales in Boots were wrong, or else I managed to gain about 9lb in one week following a low fat/low cal diet! lol.

    Docs weigh in tomorrow, so fingers crossed I have a reasonable weight loss

    Ok, so have been to see the nurse who has details of what I weighed at the beginning, and I have lost 8lb in just under 4 weeks, so I am happy with that, popped into Tesco on my way home, and the scales in there say I weigh the same as the scales at the doctors.

    thank you ladies, yes I will stick to the Tesco scales now to keep an eye on my weight loss as I know the docs scales are the same, makes a change to find two sets of scales that actually weigh you the same
