Yet another newbie..had my first weigh in today!!!


Full Member
Hi guys,

I thought I'd finally post after lurking here for the last 12 days!! I'm on my 12th day on Xenical today, had my first weigh in at my doctors and have lost 3kgs!! so I'm thrilled! Have worked hard though, no cheating, nothing other than very low fat foods, bought a cross trainer (and used it! :p).

Anyway, a bit about me, my name is Vix, I'm from Manchester, I'm 36, have 2 kids, one son who is 19 and my daughter who is 4. I live with my fella who I've been with for 9 years. I am wanting to lose about 5 1/2 stone in total..... I've been reading on here daily, have scoured all the before and after photo's for inspiration, you guys have done so well!! It seems a really supportive community too, am looking forward to being part of it

Hi Vix
Well done so far, good stuff. I've got my first official weigh in with the doc on Tuesday next week, after 26 days on Xenical.
Everyone here has been really helpful and supportive and everytime I log in (even if I don't have chance to post) I am always inspired....this forum has never failed me yet

I had to tighten my belt a notch today by the way!! I'll see if I've lost anything when I do my weekly weigh in on the machine in Boots tomorrow. I struggle not to go into town everyday and do it, but I'm pleased with my discipline....especially since I live 1 minutes walk from Boots.
Anyway...hello and good luck :D
