    Hi

    Well i went to the doctors today and he has perscribed me xenical. I am seriously over weight - 5 stones at least. I have lost and regained a stone or two of weight on various diets but have never kept it off so this is now the goal!!!

    I'm a little bit nervous but also excited after reading your success stories.

    Please keep an eye on me and give me lots of encouragement - i really need to do this!!!!!

    Hello and welcome.

    I too have a lot of weight to lose, ideally i'd like to lose another 8 stone ish. There's a sticky for new starters at the top, if you haven't already, have a good read. It's very useful.
    If you stick to the rules, you will be fine. Looking forward to reading your posts.

    Mandy
