    Morning all ,

    Just been for my 1st weigh in after week 1 of Xenical diet, I'm quite happy about it

    I lost 3kgs or rougly 7lbs not bad - the nurse was happyish - She wanted me to start on 2000 cal's per day but I got her to allow me to do 1800 per day.

    we worked out that i have been on 1585 a day although thats good on 1 hand its not on the other - I could be eating a bit more daily.
    I do find it hard just to eat every 4-5hrs though.
    The fat daily usuage was good seeing as you can go off 60mg a day - i have been between 30-40

    So a good start - just need to eat a little more maybe

    well done ken. thats great for a week! did you try myfitnesspal to keep track of your calories? i entered my height, lifestyle, excercise plan etc and it allocated me an amount. as i lose weight, it decreases. i'm on 1620 per day, though most days i'm over. x

    Thanks for your kind words ladys :), This forum is a great help alongside the blue X pill.

    Hi zoso thanks - yes I am using myfitnesspall - its a great tool - my nurse in the docs sugurg had never heard of it or this forum - as I told her the people on here are so supportive and good hart'ed it goes a long way to helping with the uphill battle we all endure to be healthy again.

    hiya Ken

    just noticed that you have lost another 4.5 lbs :wow:

    you must be so chuffed with yourself.

    i've noticed at clubs that men have the best will power ...so i imagine you'll be the one encouraging us all very soon :flirt2:

    well done :D

    Well Thank you Mrs A, :)


    Its hard I'm not going to lie - missing the lovely chicken and sweetcorn soup from the local Chinese - my fav thing.
    But I think we are all doing great - I don't expect to keep losing masses week in week out i no it will slow down.

    we are all doing great and I say it again and again the people on this forum are like going to a weight club 24/7 but better i think - its just great :)

    Well done Ken.

    I make chicken and sweetcorn soup myself. (actually I prefer noodles but my hubby prefers sweetcorn)

    If you cook a whole chicken very very slowly for hours the meat just falls off and you can use the smaller bits for the soup or a curry.

    Leave the carcasse in a casserole and put water into it at least half way up. Then bring to the boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes.

    Discard all the bones.

    Add a chicken or vegetable stock cube, a pinch of salt. Boil vigorously for a few minutes to reduce the stock a little.

    Add the chicken, rice noodles and sweetcorn.

    You can add cornflour to thicken it if you prefer a thicker soup

    Ken - i.ve just been thinking - why dont you get a carry out of a carton of your soup.
    i'm sure you could work it into your menu one day a week :flirt2:
