    If you've lost 5lb in a week, you must be doing something right ๐Ÿ˜€ I have also been on the tabs for a week and haven't lost anything! I have been conscious of cooking low fat meals and am denying myself any treats. I don't understand why no pounds have shifted! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”

      I look up recipes and find bbcgoodfood a good one. Made nice salmon fish cakes last night. They give nutrition facts so you can keep to low fat options. Good luck.

    Thats a great loss Susan.ย  I lost just over 7llb in my first week and I went on to lose just overย  6 stone in 8 months when I was on the tablets back in 2014.ย  I weighed 114kg with a bmi of 39.ย  When I stopped Orlistat I weighed 74kg and my bmi was just over 25.ย  As long as you remember to eat low fat and drink plenty of water then you can't go wrong.ย  After a while the tablets re-educate the way you think when it comes to food choices.ย  You know you will pay the price with toilet accidents if you eat too much fat !ย  Keep up the good work and i'm sure the weight will come off before you know it.

      Believe me you will.ย  Once the weight starts coming off at a steady pace each week/month it encourages you to keep going.ย  Use your holiday as your motivation.ย  Just think of all the new clothes you are going to buy!! Good luck biggrin
