    5lbs would surely be enough!!!!
    my dr is happy as long as i lose weight.
    i know you have to lose 10% of your weight int hte first few months...
    i would just do your best and see what they say when you go back. some drs are funny and say you have to lose such and such a week, so maybe it might be worth putting in a call to see how much she is expecting.

    These are the prescribing guidelines for Xenical....
    My nurse is usually happy as long as things are generally going in the right direction, and I never lose as much as 5lbs in a week, so you should be fine!

    This time, since the second week of January, but I was on it for a year a while back.
    I got down to my lowest weight of 12st 7ish on Xenical in February 2008, but I came off the tablets for a while, met my boyfriend (now my ex), piled about 6 stone back on and started again in January 2010!

    Hi

    yesterday my doctor was 'wide eyed' :eek: but pleased that I've lost 12lbs in 2 weeks, but we agreed that it is unlikely to continue like that (wouldn't that be wonderful????) so he is not expecting big weight loss every month, just steady!
    I'm hoping to lose 4-8 pounds a month if at all possible!

    Good luck!

    Don't be disappointed if you don't lose 5 pounds every week, Claire! I had big losses too at the beginning but it does slow dramatically after a while.
