    Hi, Good luck with it. Make sure you keep your fat intake to an ABSOLUTE MINIMUM! Really can't stress that enough! oh, and you might want to stock up on some feminine items, just in case. (Sorry!) ;o)

    Hello everyone, i come on this site all the time but never really post anything...i'm thinking by keeping constantly signed in it will encourage me to keep going!
    This is my second time on Xenical, i started it the other day...best of luck Crystalfaery! :) It is a great drug to use as it teaches you control over what you eat, just remember plenty of water as thats what kept me going last time!

    A question to all of u on xenical,
    my names laura im 24, married and have 2 children 7 and 5, always been big but i want to change that- i asked my doc for orlistat and they refused to give it to me so i started slimming world,and in 7 weeks ive lost 1 and half stone, however on my 6th week i had to go see my doc for another reason and because id lost some weight she actually prescribed me orlistat to help me on my way( ok so i weighed in at 17st 2.5, and i now weight 15st 9.5, and want to get to 10st) ok so last week i took orlisat with my sw diet and loss less than i hav done previously only half a pound- should i stop taking it?????
    wot do you think
    laura xxxx

    welcome to the forum, im new too :)

    byron, your weightloss on your chart shows a drop in losses over the week, so i would stick with xenical for another couple of weeks to see if it makes a difference, apparently it can take between 5-7 days to get into your system, but WELL DONE on the 1 n half stone weight loss thats fab!!!!

    Aw thanks again!

    I think thats why I like this forum so much too - its the understanding from everyone who are in the same position/have experience the same thing etc.

    Also, I know that if I wanted a kick up the ass if I was slacking off - I could come one here and ask for it and I need that from time to time... not yet but I'm sure that it will come in time! :D
