Hello, am a new starter to Xenical but not to this site, have been on the SW thread for a while, been ploughing away at the SW plan but I'm just meeting myself in the middle. At a routine drs appt last week the doctor suggested Xenical, couldnt start straight away sadly as it had to be ordered in, collecting tonight and starting tomorrow, quite nervous but also feeling really positive in the hope that finally this may be the answer to getting off this extra weight.

Wish me luck - think I'll need it!!

Hi Jo (& Clair-Louise)

Congrats on starting Xenical

From my own experience the first week is the scariest...and the way I approached it, regarding food, was totally trial & error, and relying on this forum for brilliant guidance & support....slowly, slowly working out what Xenical would tolerate and wouldn't tolerate in my diet....once I got over those first few days it was much easier and a lot less stressful ;)

best of luck and I bet you'll be grinning like the proverbial Cheshire Cat when you get on those scales next week ! :D

Thanks everyone - I must admit I am nervous of starting, because of the side effects, especially when eating out!!! However I am very encouraged by how much weight a lot of people on here appear to have lost in such a short time, I want that for myself so badly - the most frustrating thing is that I know I am doing so many of the right things, I've given up alcohol, fizzy drinks, tea, I only drink water, green tea or squash, I try to eat healthily, the only reason I mess up is major snacking, and not planning ahead - at least the side effects will spur me on into finally getting those last few peices of the puzzle into place. In a way I feel like the pill was made just for me, as I need that massive kick to stop me from spoiling things for myself, and I think the side effects will prove to be that massive kick!

How much have all you new ones lost so far?

Thank you - your photos look great by the way, very inspiring, one thing that has happened today, I've lost that 'I'll never look like an after photo, they're all made up!!' feeling, I WANT my after photo! Tomorrow morning is weigh, photo and measure day for me, really want my 'after photo' body!
You WILL get there hun,just stay as positive as you sound right now!

I used to be a major snacker like you said you were and xenical has stopped me doing that now. I have my 3 meals a day and I sometimes have snacks but they are healthy ones unlike before!
