Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
I have been successful at SW but am attending hospital and need a general anastethic so need BMI of 35 (still a way to go). To help me Doctor prescribed Xenical which I started 2 weeks ago today and I put on 2 1/2 lbs at offical SW weigh in tonight. The 2 weeks before I lost 6 1/2 so I know how to follow SW but am now doubting that they work together.

I do Zumba twice a week plus am drinking lots of water so don't know what else to do as I want to keep taking my Xenical.:cry:

Are you keeping a food diary and watching the amount of fat your consuming through the day? And also the percentage of fat in the food your eating? What about portion control too?
I've done SW in the past and had relative success, but when I went back last year ( was on a break from the Xenical), I found my portion control went flying out the window :rolleyes: Free food is great, but at the end of the day, it's still calories, and I've found for me, personally, I need to be really aware of my portion sizes. There are few peeps here that are doing both the tabs and SW, maybe they have some ideas to help you too :)

Yes, I am also noting fat per 100g and total fat per meal. Things I would have had freely before, I am not so I am considering the Xenical rules too as well as SW.

Maybe it will just take some time for my body to adapt but will keep on the site and try to stay positive.
