Hi, i just started on Xenical at the end of May (prescribed by my doctor) i have been looking at forums all day and really excited to have found you guys - makes a change to reading all the horror stories there is out there! i have had no 'accidents' so far which is good i guess but then i havent cheated and if i thought the meal i was going to have had more than 15g fat in it i didnt take my tablet (as suggested by my nurse). i have always been big, but just recently decided i really wanted to do something about it - hence the trip to the doctors. i live with my boyfriend and we have a really healthy diet, but im a sucker for snacking, i work stupid hours in a hotel so sometimes its/was (!) a case of grab what you can when you can/yummy staff lunches/a chocolate bar on the way home. i also love baking so when there was cake in the cupboard id eat it!!! it also doesnt help that my boyfriend can east WHATEVER he likes and not put a pound on! so here i am and feeling really happy and positive about starting out - ive read some of the threads already and got some really good tips and really positive feelings from how much support you give to each other! any other tips or hints would really be welcomed as im such a pesimist with my weight im convinced im not going to loose anything! wish me luck!!!!
