    and I've only lost 1.5lbs in a week :(

    I've been having shredded wheat with skimmed milk for brekkie, soup or couscous then fruit for lunch, a little snack of some low-fat biccies in the afternoon and either veg and rice or just veg (mainly corn on the cob) for tea (and perhaps a little snack in the evening, like a pink and white marshmallow slice or a little bag of low-fat/cal crackers)

    I think half the reason I haven't lost more is because it's my TOTM - so I'm hoping that the next weigh in is more successful! And lots of people have said that they don't lose much on their first week with xenical anyway.

    Hi don't be disheartened i lost a big fat 0 in my first week and was so good no snacking or anything:mad::(:cry: how ever i discovered i was really good on the fat but going over on cals now keeping a food journal and so far this week (week 2) i have lost 3lb what a difference a week makes and everyone loses at there bodies own rate. it takes some people a week for it to kick in properly. 1 1/2 lb is absolutly great especially if it is totm:D:D

    as long as the scales are moving in the right direction, im sure next week will be better dont give up keep it going

    try measuring yourself as well, as the inches might be going as you lose the fat but you might be retaining water thus scales not moved as much

    make sure you drink lots of water

    faffing about
    Everyone loses weight at a different rate and although we all want a speedy loss thats not always possible or advisable.

    My Gp has set me a target of 10% of my body weight in 6 months which is about 1lb a week. He said that aiming too high may be part of the reason I was struggling to stick to any plan and was setting myself up to fail.

    I just hope I can be happy with a slow loss.

    Congratulate yourself for any pounds gone.
