    Today is the first day of my new journey.

    I have six stone to lose.

    I have started taking full and slim. It is a drink that helps you stay fuller for longer.
    My doctor has given me a 3 month supply of Orlistat and he has given me a goal to lose 24 pounds.

    I weighed myself this morning (16.02) and took some measurements.

    Just had breakfast and popped my first pill.

    My main goal is to be 10 Stone by Christmas.

    I will keep my diary updated with my progress.

    Gemma :)

    Hi, everything is going ok, only on day 4 but feel good. I am taking full and slim at the moment as well. It gently expands your stomach like a gastric band so you don't overeat. I have set a 1500 calorie limit at the moment

    How much have you lost so far? x

    Thinking about trying the 5:2 diet, heard some great things about it, has anyone had any success?

    It's what I'm doing now (although I did 4:3 last week) & it's working for me but unlike a lot of people on their non fast days I still count & stick to under 1500 but that's only cos I'm so close to goal again & think if I ate what I wanted the other days I wouldn't lose! My mum did 5:2 last year & lost a stone (she is only 4ft 10 & weighs 8:8 now) & apart from the holiday gain she has kept it off. All she does now is a few weeks back on it to lose the holiday weight. I'm hoping for me when I get to goal one fast a week will make me maintain

    Sounds like it is really working for you :)

    Do you have set days that you fast?

    How do I work out how many calories I can have on my non fasting days? :)

    I was giving the 5:2 diet a try and counting on the up days too but struggled a bit too much on the fast days so I'm now just doing calorie counting and taking Orlistat. It does work well though if you stick to it properly.

    I fast on a Monday & a Wednesday as due to work & no exercise those days (I struggled with the gym on fast days last time) it's easier for me. I looked at what mfp said I should have daily to lose 2lb a week, then I multiplied it by 7 for my weekly took off the cals on my fast days & divided the remainder by 5. They say you can eat up to your tdee/bmr but I can't psychologically feels like I'm out or control...

    So mine looked like this

    1200 x 7 = 8400 weekly
    Minus 2 x 500 fast days = 7400
    7400 split over 5 days = 1480

    But orlistat does work if you use it properly, it's what started my journey & I know at the beginning I couldn't have fasted I would have spiralled out of control x
