    Hi Carly

    Not much advice I'm afraid as I too am starting today. Just wanted to pass on a welcome and wish you luck.

    The stone in 6 weeks sounds doable to me. Good luck!

    hey :) your first day sounds good to me ! just don't worry to much, and well done on going to the gym 5 times a week!! im certainly not exercising enough!

    its trial and error with foods, but some of the girls have said fish and eggs are different with everybody, so make sure your at home if you try these!

    good luck, and i think more than a stone will be gone in 6 weeks, keep positive :) xx

    Welcome to Xenical hun. A stone can be acheived hun, and a bit. Do you understand the rules to Xenical hun? As long as you stick to them and drink plenty of water you'll do fine.

    Xenical doesn't recognise good fats from bad fats, so oily fish can be a problem, but only for some, we all react differently.

    It's a good idea to take a multivit too. A lot of the docs that dish out the Xenical have no idea of what goes hand in hand with it, it's so very annoying, I am so glad I found Minis for that, I'd be tango'd every day otherswise ;)

    Good luck hun!

    welcome and I look forward to reading how you do. Remember, xenical is not a miracle pill, but if you use it as an aid, and make lifestyle changes (diet and exercise) then it will work. Healthy lives is something good to aim for. I wish you all the success in the world.

    Foods to avoid : all foods containing more than 5g of fat per 100g. IE all hard cheeses, most soft cheeses, chocolate, cakes etc, although you can find low fat versions of some of this stuff, just ask and I'm sure the lovely ladies here will let you know.

    thanks for all the advise and for making me feel welcome ladies , ive just had my main meal of the day my dinner and i had a weight watchers lasagne with loads of broccoli on the side pretty full up , im about to take my 3rd xenical of the day , ive had no side effects so far today , i feel fine i suppose tommorow with tel me if ive done bad , but i know i will get hungry later on so i have strawberry's in the fridge if im peckish and also banana's i hope this is a good snack as usually i would binge on crisps, crisps and bread and cheese are the things i binge on and i have cut them out of my mind thats going to be the hardest thing. if i get hungry to snack then ive decided im going to come on here and talk instead lol . i dont eat fish at all or eggs i hate them i am a very fussy eater thats why this is going to be so hard fo me , but thank you all so much so far xxx

    I'm a fussy eater, I always have been! I don't eat meat or fish, I don't like the taste, smell or texture of it, but I love all veg and fruit..I like carbs, breads and pasta and cheese..however I've not touched cheese in a year :D

    You'll be ok, stick to the healthy snacks if you get peckish, if you do feel like a snack, make sure you really are peckish and it's not just your brain playing tricks with you...think before you eat and drink plenty of water, it really helps!

    Well done Carly, first day gone!

    I am pleased with my first day too, though was sick. Not sure if that was due to the tablets or the cough/cold I have.

    Did very well on the eating front, though probably not enough calories, ony about 850 acccording to myfitnesspal.

    Have another good day today.

    I was sick actually and still feel a bit sick. Think it is just the cough and cold, feeling very bunged up and I coughed until I was sick! Sorry, TMI.

    Well done... keep going and you'll soon be into your journey. You need more calories though :)

    I think it sounds like your cold, I don't believe the Xenical would do that after just taking it..have some warm drinks, hope you feel better :)

    Still no kittens...what's the mum doing? does she look like she could be trying to find a birthing place? They usually do it when it's quieter.

    Glad things are going well, keep up the good work :)
