    Hey everyone,

    I am new to Zenical, have been taking them for a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Year back in the UK and lost 3,5kg, I have already experienced some of the nasty side effects after a bit of a midnight biscuit raid (it was alcohol induced!!) so I know what I have to do to stay free of the side effects...

    I live alone so cooking sensibly is not really an issue, yesterday I bought a convection cooker which is a healthy and quick way of cooking all in one pot so hoping that it will help keep me on the straight and narrow and narrow my hips at the same time!! :) we do get a lunch provided at work however I think the most sensible thing to do for me is to bring lunch with me and then I can control the food that I am eating properly.

    I am currently wearing a size 18-20 and my aim is to be a comfortable size 14, ralistically I would like to do it in a year which means loosing half a stone a month...

    Hope that I can do it this time, I am so fed up of being this size and unhealthy...

    Any advise you can give is always welcome...I have an awful sweet tooth...

    Claire xx

    Ps I am also trying to do wii fit 5/6 days a week and burn an average of 350cals per session.

    HIya and welcome to the Xenical forum :D
    Advice for a sweet tooth? I find that a 10 cal jelly ( they're actually less than 10 cals ...I buy the Hartleys' ones..ready made ones) really help when I want something sweet.
    Good luck and keep posting here for support :D

    Agree with Ali that the sugar free jelly is brilliant for that sweet tooth - for a real treat add a couple of lady fingers and fruit and you can kid yourself your having a trifle!!

    Also, WW chocolate and biscuits ranges are good for the sweetness, just watch the amount that you have, no need to say why!! ;)

    One of the side effects of Metformin is diarrhoea hun, so it very likely that this is what's causing your trips to the loo. As long as you're staying within the Xenical rules, that will give you no side effects, but like I say, its one of the side effects of Metformin.
    Hang in there and hopefully it will settle down xx

    Thank you everyone for your lovely messages, I weighed in this morning on my wii and it shows total loss since before christmas to be 12lb.

    I find looking at everything difficult as I live in Turkey and we dont really have so many ready meals or processed foods...in one way thats a good thing as I have to prepare my meals from fresh....lots of chicken/fish and vegetables/salad! But generally restaurant and home cooked meals are ladened with oils!! Just have to keep cooking at home and stay away from the restaurants!!

    Chicken wih steamed cauliflower, brocolli and carrots tonight = yum yum starving already!
