    Hi folks,

    I haven't been here in a while - I used to post on the calorie counting forums but my halo slipped and I put all the weight back on (and more...).

    I have a condition called Lipoedema and the nurse that treats me suggested I go to my GP to ask about seeing a nutritionist with a view to working out a balanced diet plan. My GP just stuck me straight on Xenical after weighing me (I'm 17stone and 5'7", though out of proportion due to my lipoedema - both my lower legs weigh a stone more than average).

    I was surprised he didn't want to carry out any other checks first, and had read some horror stories about Xenical so I spoke to my father who's a pharmacist and he told me he thought they would be safe for me.

    So... I'm nearly a week in, and have cut almost all excess fat out of my diet (I'm a bit scared of the side-effects if I don't!). No weight loss yet, but I do feel "better", probably due to the fact that I've upped my water, fruit and veg intake quite substantially, and have cut back on the caffiene for good measure.

    Welcome!

    I will have been taking Xenical for what will be 4 weeks this Wednesday and the first week I was pretty much petrified of the side effects but haven't had any by sticking to as low a fat diet as possible.

    This truly is the best diet that I have ever been on and I've found that my weightloss really motivational.

    I found the stick at the top of the page really useful.

    Anything you need, holler out! x
