    Hi Everyone

    Ive been having a read and thought Id say Hi :D
    Im Jo and Im 30 and about to start taking Xenical on Monday and dont really know to much about it but the doc thought I should give it a go. Ive been taking medication for a underactive thyroid since Jan but seem to have gained yet another stone and not lost so hoping this is gonna help lose some weight.

    Any tips or anything I should or shouldnt do would be great, and also how are you all getting on? Is anyone losing weight and doing great ?????

    :welcome2: Jo, im about to take my first blue tablet on monday too! :D ive spent the last couple of days going low fat and trying to grasp the rules,if it wasnt for the people here and this forum i would've been totally lost.

    theres a great introduction post by piink pinkstarr at the start of this section,it explains quite a bit and helped me alot,shes also a real inspiration,if you get a chance give her threads a look.ive not had a chance to read many of the other success stories,but im getting round to it.:)

    my aunt has been on xenical for a couple of months and has lost 3 stone! i dont get to see her often though,so this place is great for me ;)

    wish you lots of luck,and hope to see you around :D

    Hi Bunny-hops

    Its good to know someone else is starting Monday as well, I was also thinking of starting weight watchers as well this week so I can keep a eye on what im eating as well just hoping that the tablets will move things along nicely. Im just reading through threads now and seeing what I should eat and what I should avoid. Good luck and keep me posted x x
