    Hi ladies well as the title says im new here
    I am 27 yrs old and mum to two little girls. I have put on weight steadily the last few years from pregnancies, exhaustion etc lol

    I had tried for 6 months to lose weight but my other half and I tried for our youngest and didnt get a pound off! I decided to wait til after baby and when she was 6 weeks old I tried slimming world for almost 2 months without losing a pound!! I was sooo disheartened as no one could tell me what I was doing wrong

    I have since put on a stone and tried slimfast for a few months, I have managed to get 8lbs off and gp put me on xenical.
    I have been taking it since last sat, but iwasnt given any advice with it just a run thru of the side effects!! I only really had them on the 3rd day and now I am able to control them. I am stickin to a slimming world-ish diet and havent had any real side effects since and lost 8 lds since starting (2 of the 8 lbs).
    I hadnt a clue about the 5g/15g rule!!!
    I am now tryin it but not sure wat im doin!!!
    thanks
