    Hi and welcome Elly :).

    I haven't tried lighterlife, I think my aunt was on it though. I don't think I would have the will power for something like that!

    Good luck with xenical :D

    Hi Elly, and welcome.
    I was going to start Lighter Life last August...I even went to the introductory session, and got the forms to fill in.
    However, when I got home, my boyfriend called and split up with me!! (it had been on the cards for a while!). Needless to say, dieting was the last thing on my mind, so I consoled myself by gaining a couple of extra stone instead :eek:
    Cutting a long story short - I've decided to give the Xenical another go this year, as I couldn't face anything more drastic. I know Xenical worked for me before so there's no reason it won't again.
    The results on Xenical won't be as immediate as they are with Lighter Life, but at least you can enjoy the food you're eating, and you can have a social life at the same time!
    I don't know how much information you've been given, but if there's anything you need to know, just ask - someone will be here with the answer! :)

    thank you for all your replies yeah I know I would have liked to stay on lighter life for a month or so for another stone off but ive been having problems with constipation etc so it might be the best thing to do
