    Hello gang. :wavey: I had some Xen left over from a previous prescription and am thinking of asking my dr to re-prescribe as I've got about 9lbs off in the last maybe six-eight weeks taking them with my meals!:D

    I really need to make sure I don't have too much fat though, I have some fruit in for when I wanna snack and am keeping an eye on portion sizes.

    Some people here know me but for those who don't: I am 28, been too heavy most of my life and have spent the last 3 years trying to find a plan that I can stick to realistically.

    Hey Lyn :wavey::hug99:I think you've nothing to lose and everything to gain by going to your drs ( ok maybe not the best turn of phrase :rolleyes: but you get what I mean :D)
    As for watching the amount of fat...do you keep a food diary? I've found its the best way to really keep a check on everything.
    Good luck xxx

    Hi
    Nice to meet you. Im new to Xenical and have found that it really helps me make better choices in food. Im scared of getting the 'side-effects' i have read about, and that helps me chose low fat options.
    Good luck to you

    I have decided to go back on Xenical, I've got about a week's supply left. I am hoping the side effects will keep me away from my binge foods. :eek:

    Hello Lynn, and welcome :)
    I was just wondering if you were planning on having any snacks with this?! Your meals seem similar to mine, but I couldn't manage without a few snacks throughout the day to keep me going. Normally fruit, low-cal cereal bars, sugar free jelly, SnackaJacks and that kind of thing.
    Don't let yourself go starving, otherwise (if you're anything like me) you'll cave in eventually! We all need to be able to sustain this plan in the long term, so it's important not to feel too deprived.
    Also, have you tried the low-cal sprays for frying, such as Fry-Light? Obviously, proper oil will add a lot to the fat content of your meal, so replacing it would reduce the likelihood of any side effects!

    Good luck with the Xenical Lynn, I really hope you acheive your goals :)

    thanks alex.:) I started the day off well with porridge and a corned beef sandwich at lunch which I only ate half of, then I ruined my good intentions by going to the shop for crisps, icecream and mars muffins.:mad::( Then I ordered Chinese which I only ate a quarter of! Nor'd I eat all the crisps and icecream. I'd like to say me eyes are bigger than me belly but they're not.

    I read KD's post about retraining "Fred" in the bring your head inside forum i think. It makes good sense.
