new to this diet

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!!!


Go on smile! =)
I also got wind at first along with mild headaches. Lasted about 1-2 weeks at the start now i dont have them as much if at all.
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 :)


'this time i'll do it!'
good luck with your journey, this site has tons of support and its only a computer away!
i got a bit of pain when i started but it settled down soon, hope all goes well xx

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
