    Hi everyone,
    I had to post as I am so disheartened.
    I started on xenical on thursday, and my starting weight was 117.9kg.

    So i am on day 5 and thought I was doing well, went and had a cheeky weigh in and i am only 116.6kg....thats a really disappointing loss of 2lbs in 5 days.

    I literally cried, because i have gone from being a binge eater, to cutting everything out junk food wise, my portion size has decreased a lot, i don't know what I am doing wrong?

    I have even started exercising too.

    Can anyone offer any support??

    Thanks in advance,
    Donna:cry:

    Donna thats a great loss.......don't be disheartened hunny:)

    we are only meant to lose between 1-2lbs a week thats a healthy loss

    When people have more weight to lose they can achieve big losses at first then it slows to 1-2lbs also

    to burn a lb of fat it takes 3,500 calories to burn.........its gonna be hard work hun but your on the right track....yippee i am very happy for you xxxx

    we have to remember how many years our weight took to get there.....so why to we expect it to go overnight .......

    2lbs in five days is a great loss!! Well done!!

    If you carry on with a loss rate like that, when you back to your doctors in a month's time, then your stats will be brilliant!! Don't forget though that everyone is different when it comes to losing weight, it comes off each us at different rates.

    Well done on your loss so far, please please don't stress that you've not lost as much as you thought you had, stressing is not good for weightloss!

    Keep it up - looking forward to hearing how you get on at the doctors for your next weigh in!

    i cant say any more than the others already have. 2lbs is a great loss, and who know by day 7 you could have doubled it at least!!

    Good to see your more positive now, that positivity will help you with your weight loss!! So good luck hun!!
