    Well I have started Xenical today.. feeling a bit nervous but hoping it comes off alright.

    Weighed myself today at 13st 1lb and hoping to get to 11st (maybe to 10st if possible but i'm not holding my breath for that one I'd be happy at 11!)

    So here's hoping that it helps!!

    I hadn't really thought about it but will probably start swimming again, at least until I've lost a bit of weight and regained a bit of fitness. I'm so unfit that I'd last two minutes at the gym before I went bright red and got completely out of breath!

    hey clueless.... i started going to the gym in feb this year at first it was so embarrising , about 5 minutes after i started id be breathless and sweat would be pouring .. but trust me the only way to battle that is to face it head on .. i carried on going every day of the week well ive had about 6 days off since february... and now i love it..

    Ive lost nearly 5 stone since feb by doin tons of exercise as well... so it is important..

    good luck you guys you will find that the tabs dont properly kick in for around 3-5 days everyones diff but dont give in xx

    i'm really unfit now, more so since i started smoking again!

    the main thing stopping me going is my gym clothes.. they feel so unflatteringly tight!!!

    yeah i know how you feel but still go... dont let them thoughts ruin your sucess rate.. when i first went to the gym i felt the same as you..but as the weight dropped my clothes became too big & then i was paranoid incase they loooked too big n made me a mess... lol.. if people look at you or you think they are laughing , always say to yourself... laugh now but lets see who will be laughing in say 6 months... dont stop yourself for doing good x
