    You can adapt the Slimming world recipes, and yes there are some you can't have, but I have as Rachel said lost almost 3 stone doing Slimming world and taking the tablets.

    There are also a few more who have lost loads of weight doing it

    Diet:
    WW
    I've recently gone back to WW and in so far I've lost 7.5lbs in two weeks! (I've also upped my exercise so it's not just WW) I've not really changed what I eat so much, because everything was fairly low fat for obvious reasons, but I think the slight shift in perceptions of what/how much I was eating has given my body a bit of a boost these past two weeks. A lot of the recipes do tie in with Xenical.

    I am the kind of person who benefits from a weekly support group, but with four other ladies in my dept at work on WW, we share ideas/tips etc - its getting unfortunate for the ladies in our dept who aren't on the plan!!

    I know my mum has people at her SW class that also take xenical. I was thinking about joining for the weekly weigh in as I dont see my doc for 3 months.

    I was going to slimming world, and was having a rough time with family issues and such, and was generally loosing 1lb here and there or stsand one week i put on 1/2 lb and the woman that weighed me said....wait for it....."why are you bothering....i mean really why are you even bothering to come here...do you even try??" I was so shocked I simply said, "well obviously i like giving you my money" picked up my things and left..I never went back...was too shocked in all honesty!

    But saying that, I will follow SW when i start tomorrow!

    At first i didnt, but so many people told me i should i rang the leader and spoke to her, who was as equally horrified as everyone else ive told...it deeply upset me and I wont go back, not to be judged in that manner.
