    Hi Everyone,

    I stumbled across this fantastic forum as I sat crying after my doctor prescribed me Xenical.

    I have poly cystic ovaries and have gained a lot of weight during the last year. I eat quite a low calorie diet anyway, but sadly due to the condition the weight just wasn't shifting.

    I'm really nervous about starting these tablets, but the advice and inspiration I have got from reading the other diaries on this site have really spured me on.

    Thursday 15th September, the first time and the LAST time that I will EVER weigh 17 stone!

    Here goes.....

    thanks so much. It so nice to know I'm not alone in this.
    It makes you feel terrible about yourself. I'm a comfortable size 16, yet having the pressure on you to lose weight can make you feel so down about how you look.

    Anyway, onward and upward. Thanks for your support :)

    Welcome to the forum. Have you read through the threads for new starters? They give you lots of information on the do's and don't of Xenical.

    100ml of skimmed milk.

    Snack: Alpen cereal bar

    Lunch: 30g of Raisin Branflakes
    100ml of skimmed milk
    1 muller light
    Dinner: 1 asda pasta meal . 2g per 100g. 9g per portion
    mixed salad

    Thats it so far.

    Hi everyone,

    My first weekend on Xenical and it's not proving as hard as I thought it would be.
    Been to Sainsburys this morning and have stockedup on what I need for the week. Was hard walking past the biscuit aisle!

    Today to far I have eated,

    Breakfast: 60g of sultana bran with skimmed milk. - 8g of fat
    Lunch: Whole meal pitta, half can of tuna in brine and half a bagel and weight watcher jam. It came to around 8g in total I think.
    Dinner: Not sure yet :)

    Hope you're all having a lovely Saturday xxx
