Does orlistat work for everyone? 

Imy next weigh in is just under 2 weeks and my weight has not shifted since my first weigh in.

Im feeling utterly despondent with orlistat. 

Im not sure ill have the will power to not eat the crap if dr takes me off them.

Im almost tempted to try the aloe diet anything to shift this.

    Hey smile I hadn't lost anything the first couple weeks when I first started.  But when I got weighed I had lost 11lb. 

    Stick with it.  It will come off. I was really bloated and couldn't really do the toilet either so it could be that? 

    Good luck smile

    Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement. 

    Im so disappointed because I am being SO good. 

    Not One bad food has passed my lips. Not one day have I gone over 1350 kcals. Every day I have 3-5lts of water.  Im walking more.

    What more can I do.

    I've never been so good on a diet. 

    I know if I come off them I will eat the crap again. 

    I will stick with it and I pray that it starts to shift off my lardy arse. Just beating myself up cos I feel I must be doing something wrong? 

    I've had 0 side effects so im eating right.

    Thank you all again xxx

      Hi Claire,

      When I first started I was weighed at docs 4 weeks later and I had lost NOTHING. I had no idea as I had no scales at home. I was absolutely gutted. I told myself that I would have to up my game. I got my bike out of the shed and try to cycle 5 to 6 miles a day after tea. 6 weeks later when weighed again I had lost a stone. It's coming off but very slowly for me .  Exercise really does help if u can fit it in.

      Stay strong and it will happen. Everyone is different. Please don't feel your going wrong,

      Joy xx

      Thank you joy. Although I do exercise I probably could do more and I may even cycle to work in the morning.... hmmm we'll see.

      Early start as it is lol.

      Wow that's a great loss in 6 weeks id be very pleased with it. 

      We will all just have to keep plodding on xx

    I've been on it a week, I'm one of these that likes auto results...I'm so impatient! I have been weighing myself everyday and seeing no change - I need to stop that, I'm sticking to it like I never have done before, I've not cheated once. I'm the world worst dieter so it I can do it anyone can, we are all in this together! Reading everyone's comments is so incouraging xx
