    Hi, I am a 34yr old woman. I am obese.

    The beginning of January I joined WW and to my shock, weighed in at 24stone 13.5lbs.

    I got off to a really good start -
    Wk 1 - Lost 5lbs;)
    Wk 2 - Lost 5.5lbs;)
    Wk 3 - Lost 2 lbs;)
    Wk 4 - Lost 2.5lbs;)
    Wk 5 - Stayed the Same:(:confused:

    I discussed my weight loss with my doctor and he advised me that Xenical would help me with this hugh journey.

    Since taking Xenical, I feel the urge to urinate alot. This apparently is a side effect.

    Has anyone any experience of taking Xenical?

    Would love to hear .....:confused::confused::confused:

    Hey Transformation,

    Goodluck on your journey, and it seems your doing really well so far :D

    I was on Xenical for around a year (finished in the summer last year) I dont remember wee'ing alot whilst on them, but I definately had alot of the other side effect hee hee

    I think it can be really good if used in the right way, For me, I found that I reduced fat so much that it didnt benefit me anymore, then my doc also changed and they didnt agree with slimming aids so that was the end of that :)

    Good luck

    ps...there is a section for Xenical on here which can be really helpful

    xx
