    Hi Missippi, welcome to Minis and to the Xenical forum :)
    I've been on Xenical since April last year ( was off it for a couple of months, but am back on them now). One thing I would recommend is get yourself really familiar with food labels as you're going to be reading a lot of them lol
    While on Xenical, you really need to try and stick to food that is 5% fat ( that is, on a food label, 5g of Total Fat content per 100g of food product), and that your meals should be no more than 15g of fat. I keep a food diary in my kitchen and I write down everything I eat, plus fat grammes ( I also count calories too :)) Some people do the same, others post its as diary here, or there are a few internet sites that you can keep a track of your daily food intake too. Its really a matter of personal choice :)
    Just post here if you need any help or if you need to ask anything, one of us will always try to help.
    Good luck
    xx

    Welcome and good luck on xenical. Am newish myself and like Ali says read labels all the time to make sure you dont go over the recommended fat intake. I have done it once and wouldnt recommend the side effects!

    I've got an underactive thyroid too and it can affect weight loss but once you are stable on thyroid meds it should make very little difference. My thyroid meds have just been increased so am hoping for an easier time of it soon.

    Best of luck

    To be honest, I've no idea, although I wouldn't have thought so.
