    I'm Claire, I am a 31 year old mother of three and have started on Reductil this morning, I don't know very much about it so am hoping to rad a few success stories here:)

    hi and thanx ladies
    I've got a bit more time to tell a little about myself.

    I'm 31 and my current weight is 18 stone (my heaviest), that combined with being 5'5" is obviously not a good mix!
    I don't have any health issues (as yet) and am trying to lose around 8 stone to make sure I don't get any health issues. I have been over weight for the last ten years, I have done all the slimming clubs and diets to death and have done really well on them but but for whatever reason have piled back on the pounds and then some.

    A couple of months ago I was prescribed xenical but it didn't agree with me so my GP has given me Reductil, which after googling I have found out basically tells my brain that I am full up so theoretically I wont want to eat. The fear that I have is that I very rarely am hungry, but I still shovel down the food! so am a bit apprehensive whether it will actually work for me but at the same time I don't want to start on a negative so am really determined to give it my best shot.

    I have a feeling that it will be easier with having joined this forum as I hope to both give and receive encouragement :) I haven't told any of my family or friends (not even my partner) that I am taking the reductil as I find it embarassing to talk about my weight but am sure that I wont feel that way talking to fellow slimmers

    Anyway, as I said I hope to make a few buddies and if anyone needs a moan or a whoop etc, feel free to message me :)

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!!!

    Hey there hun, well i hope it works for you!!!
    I have never taken any of the pills but i have been told that they really work so i have everything crossed for you!!
    I know what you mean about not being able to talk to people about your weight, the only time i want to talk about it is when i am doing well and LOSING weight - but if i am not i can be quite moody if people bring it up as i always feel like people are having a go at me or something (I know they are not, its all in my head but thats irrelevant! haha!)
    If you ever want a chat or a good moan etc, message me!
