Hello there everyone!! This is my first time doing anything like this. Started on the Orlistat last Wed 1/09/10 and had no symptoms until yesterday!!! it was horrendous! Could not leave the house. My own fault completely as I was noughty on Friday, was just trying my luck and was curious if i', honest. I'm glad in a way that I had such a horrible day as its really made me think of the consequences if i do not stick to being good. Had mullerlight and raspberries so far today so starting off well. I'm so pleased a found this site as you are all very inspiring xx

Hello, and welcome to the forum!
It sounds like you've learned the hard way about the Xenical side-effects! :eek: I've only had one episode like that, but it definitely put me off 'testing' the tablets again!
Have a look around the forum if you haven't already - you'll get loads of good tips about taking Xenical, and some good recipe/food ideas as well.
Remember to stick to less that 5g of fat per 100g of food (total fat not saturated) and no more than 15g of fat per meal, and you won't have another day like yesterday!

Keep posting as well - it really does help to have the support from all the lovely ladies (and the occasional gentleman) here :D

Welcome! Sometimes I think it's a good idea to experience the worst of the side effects for yourself, then you are determined never to go through it again. Good luck and keep posting,

Thanks Ladies. I certainly will not be 'testing' them again. Really really feel motivated now. I've had a good look around and picked up a few tips!! Can't wait to see the weight finally shifting xx
thanks for the warm welcome x:)x

first thing that i can think of and it might be too much info..... is if you are blocked up at all?????

i did find that after the first few weeks i lost nothing, until i did some exercise. so maybe thats what your body needs....
give it a go what have you got to lose? (other than weight)
