    That is a good loss - any loss is a good loss...be prepared for your loss to get less and less as you proceed...but keep going....only another 3 lb until 1.2 stone.....well done girl....all the best for the days ahead.

    you will only suffer the extreme side effects if you disobey the rules, 25-30g of fat a day, no more than 15g in any one meal, to see effective weight loss you should be combining these tablets with exercise and drinking plenty of water. the only side effects you should encounter perhaps when sticking to the rules is wind and possibly constipation for the first few weeks but you can take something like senakot to relieve that. good luck, its really not as bad as people make out, i have been on these for 5 months, lost 2st and never had a bad experience!
