    Hi everyone

    Ive tried every diet going with some success but im a yoyo dieter and im sooo determined to get back into my clothes.

    Im 5ft 9 and weigh in at 16 stone 2 lbs thats the heaviest i have been in 5 or 6 years.

    Im very unhappy with my weight and desperate to make healthier choices with food and exercise.

    I started the Alli tablets yesterday and today is day 2, so far so good i have stuck to the diet and only effect i have found is that i get a slight stomach ache and wind is this normal?

    i hope to see the weight falling down as i have 6 stone to lose

    many thanks

    i didnt get the wind (but yes it is common) but got the stomach pain, it kinda felt like a stitch for me....

    This is normal, and i think can last a couple weeks while your body adjusts...

    Hope day 2 goes well for you!! Keep at it!!!

    Oh I'm glad that's normal, it's been aching a bit today went to no2 and feeling better.

    Day 2 is going well and I'm determined not to get on the scales until end of the week
    I'm a tad obsessed with scales when on a diet lol.

    Well I'm praying to the diet gods for success lol

    thanks

    ive not had the head aches yet but will look out for them, im trying to drink lots of water too as i know u can get head aches from being dehydrated.

    i know im only on day 2 but this is actually not feeling like a diet, and its actually the kind of eating i can easily get used to which i think is very important as i need to make this a life changing thing not just do this while losing.

    thanks everyone x

    The important thing is the change in diet (and exercise is a must). The orlistat (alli or xenical) is just to give you a helping hand. It also means that you have a better chance of keeping the weight off if you change your habits :)

    i didnt get the head aches but each person is different.
    i did get a little blocked up down there if i remember correctly.... but that soon come back to normal...

    all the things that the packaging doesnt tell you... lol

    i have also found this quite easy, and i can pretty much say its changed the way i think about foods, and how much oils and fat is in everything... it makes me sick to think about what i used to eat and would still be eating if i didnt change.

    hi everyone

    so far not been blocked up yet and still going regulary, so im pleased about that. On day 3 now and just had my breakfast and taken my tablet, i was naughty and got on the scales this morning just to make sure they are dropping and they are so that gave me a spring in my step. i was concerned that they wouldnt drop as i hadnt been able to exercise as my belly was hurting all the time.

    well im loving this new healthy eating plan which is the same as the rosemary conley i did years ago except i wouldnt dare cheat this one lol

    thanks for your replys cant wait to check in with you on sunday when i weigh in and see what my first week on alli tablets has helped me achieve

    kindest regards

    m

    Thanks yes I'm very happy and determined to get this weight off. I was a size 10 before my divorce and want to get back to normal again.

    Well stomach aches are getting better only had it for a bit last night instead of all day so I'm pleased about that.

    Can't wait for my weigh in on Sunday wooohooo.
