    Sorry if you've already read my other post! Thought I'd re-phrase the heading and see who pops along!

    I am 2 weeks in and have not lost a pound. I did gain 3-4lbs in the first few days (as I had come straight off Cambridge Diet) but thats has now gone and I am back to the weight my Doctor recorded when she prescribed Xenical.

    I have been reading through this forum for stories similar to mine, where people have come off VLCD's and have struggled to lose initially. I was so disheartened yesterday I almost packed it in and went back to CD - but thanks to a few replies, I am going to carry on and give it a good chance.

    Anyone out there who has had a similar experience and is now going in the right direction?

    Thank you! :)
