    Hello
    My name is Jo and I have been overweight and dieting forever, I piled on a lot of weight when I was 19 and have struggled to lose it. I lost 19lbs with weight watchers 3 years ago, but fell pregnant and stoped following the plan. I am proud to say I didn't any weight on after I had my son, but I was fat to begin with so still need to slim :) When my son was 5 months old I went to my dr and was prescribed orlistat but within the first month I was hospitilised with gallstones and pancreatitis, gallstones are the most painful thing I have ever experienced and luckily I don't have a gall bladder now :) I went back to the dr after the op as I was still struggling to lose weight and they discovered I had an underactive thyroid. So now I am on the right dose of medication, I visit a nurse weekly for weigh ins and support and I was prescribed xenical again this week so I am determined to lose weight. I don't have a lot of family where I live so I hope I can make some friends and get some support here :)
    I've lost 4kilos so far but have a long way to go
    thanks
    Jo

    Hi and welcome. Well done on losing 4 k and just take your diet a day at a time. There are others who have xenical prescribed - including me. There is a thread of people on it. I'll look for it and give you the link

    Hi - just to add my welcome to everyone else's.

    It is great on here and you never feel alone - better to reach for the keyboard when cravings strike than the biscuit tin, I say.
