    Hey guys

    I've been on xenical for 4 weeks now and I've still not experienced the side effects, and I'm actually worried that I'm doing something wrong. I get windy and have strange poo sometimes, but I never get oily or have the urgent need to go or anything. Do you think I should eat something naughty and have a "clear out"??? I'm just confused.. I was expecting the worst and it's not happened...:confused:

    No side effects do NOT mean the tablets are working, your weight loss means the tablets are working. No side effects is a good thing hun x

    Ali is right, its a GOOD thing there are no side effects, as long as your losing weight they are working. I have had no side effects but I know they are working cos I have lost 15lbs in the past almost month I have been taking them :D

    Dont forgot why people get the side effects! They get the side effects from eating too much fat. Its fat that is the orange stuff. Therefore your not eating too much fat which is good. The side effects are a sign that your over working the tablets. Thats is why there are the rules in place. People who have tango poo are eating too much fat. Wind and softer stools etc are perfectly normal, tango poo isnt normal, its because they're cheating.

    Chala, are you counting calories? You might not be eating enough or are eating the right amount to maintain.

    Yep as the others have said Yay your doing it right. :D The weight loss is the sign they are working. Side effects are the signs they are not working and your not doing the diet right.

    Thanks everyone. I'm just worried because my first week on them properly I gained half a pound, then the next week I lost 5lbs and at my last WI I had gained 1.5lbs.

    It's OK tho, I think I know where I'm going wrong. I'm eating too many calories & not controlling my portion size :(

    Thanks Chala. It's more snacks that I struggle with. Like.. last night I had 4 pink & whites, 3 slices of the eat smart low fat lemon slices, a bowl of cereal (probably 60g of cereal), snack a jacks and carrot sticks... I just can't stop:confused: that was all after dinner. I know it's boredom but I feel so low that I don't want to do anything else but eat.

    :cry:

    aww:hug99: dont worry, we all do it. and its early days, your trying to break the habits that have formed over a long time dont be so hard on yourself!

    you should try swimming, or an exercise dvd. if you do something you dont usually do, you feel to happy with yourself to go nibbling!

    Thanks hun :hug99:. I don't have a swimsuit & I would be far too self concious to go swimming anyway but I did go back to the gym on Friday - first time in a long time. So I will be continuing that! I just need to stop nibbling on bad things:cry:
