    Evening everyone :)

    I am going to try and get my cholesterol checked tomorrow or Tues am whilst my LO is at nursery and if it`s bad try to get a Drs appt for Tues or Thurs (they`re the days she is in nursery). Depends on if I need to book it at the Chemist or get it done right away.

    Should I start on a very low fat diet from now on just incase I start on the Xenical at some point during the week or next week? I REALLY do NOT want any bad side effects if I do :eek:

    I got complacent on my diet as I had stopped losing weight :(

    I have had a lovely slap up roast beef dinner this eve just incase :D lol

    TIA,

    LiSe Xxx

    There is absolutely no harm in starting a low fat diet now, and even if you don't start Xenical, then there's no harm in continuing a low fat diet either ;) :)

    Hehe true Ali ;)

    I don`t eat too badly anyway, Just not going to be terribly anal about fat content etc if not necessary - Just try and aim for lower fat.

    I am rambling today so not sure that has made sense :rolleyes: lol x

    It makes perfect sense. If you don't go the Xenical route, then as you say, you can still do a low fat diet, but without having to be religous/rigorous on the label reading fromt :)

    I'm trying to lose 2.5kg before my doctor prescribes Xenical but already I'm reading labels. Some of the food that I thought ws low fat or fairly healthy is quite often not and the amount of times I must have looked like I'd had a huge shock in the middle of the supermarket - it seems a lot of things have unneccesary fat, sugar and salt in them - it's really opened my eyes x

    Hi Obsy x

    I know! It is quite scary really just how much "healthy" stuff isn`t!!

    I am going to try get on track with watching what I eat again. I have already managed to lose 21lbs so am hoping I wouldn`t have to lose any more to prove myself before being given the Xenical.

    Good Luck to you!! xx

    @ Ali - Glad you got what I was on about, I tend to ramble a LOT :rolleyes: lol xXxxx
