    ok hi my name is gillian and i,m a greedy pig!lol i,ve managed to eat myself to 20st 4lbs:eek: went to the doc on the 13.01.10 n asked for reductil 2 help reduce my portion size well lost 11lbs(5kgs) in 2wks and reductil was my best friend with no side effects at all.UNTIL my friend who is a pharmacist says they had to send it all back. so yesterday i went to my docs and he said thats right and there is no other appetite suppresents to prescibe so he has given me xenical to try. my OH and kids think its hilarious as they have focused on the "side effects"!!!! thats kids eh! i,m sure if i had a public "side effect" that would be even funnier! so i will laugh myself thin with them!
    so weighing in every 1wks i think! to date its 11lbs with reductil so we will see wot xenical does!

    Welcome, Gillian and well done on not getting demotivated by the Reductil thing. Xenical is great and it's the threat of those dreaded side effects that keeps us all on the straight and narrow. Tell your kids they'll have to get their laughs elsewhere :D

    the affect of the reductil have def worn off today feeling a tad peckish 4 the first time in wks. so i made 4portions of sugar free jelly to have on stand by. So i went to the gym n burned 500 cals i was really knackered so will hopefully see a difference in a few weeks when i,m not. going to gym tomorrow morning then go for a swim after will set me up 4 the day. anyone got anything they always have in the house if the feel peckish to munch on??

    Hi gillian

    as others have said welcome to Xenical. I have been taking it for just over month now and have not experienced the ugly side effects that others have had...went to the doctor for reductil as it had been suggested before when I was still breastfeeding and they would prescribe it when I had stopped....however my surgery had already decided to stop it.

    So I had this alternative...and have to say it works for me and actually food is no longer ruling my choices and it is suppressing my appeitite even if just through fear!!! lol

    As to munchies....did have a box of frosties and had some dry...but not able to keep them in house as would continue to eat them! Sponge fingers are good for quick sugary fix, tube of fruit gums lasts forever but limited calories (I think) and sliver of malt loaf.....

    What ever works lol
    good luck and keep posting

    That link wont work :( i wanna join it lol! Well done on the whole exercise hun....i found it hard to get into but now im hooked! I get up to go gym at 6am before work and does me for the whole day...plus its nice n quiet! Havent plucked the courage to go swimmin yet though due to paranoia knowing everyone who works there and not wanting to be seen in a cossie lol!
    My workmates give me grief about the side effects lol i just ignore it!
    I like to keep snackajacks on standby...the salt n vinegar ones are wkd and i like ryvita minis yummy and theyre both lower in fat but only limit yaself! crisps are my weakness!!!! If you have a sweet tooth try out weightwatchers puddings...they have a chocolate brownie one and a caramel crunch i swear by them if i get a craving! ive lost weight and had no side effects so theyre def a good thing lol....good luck hun and keep me updated on ya progress x x
