I put my prescription in this morning for my orlistat and am now very nervous about starting taking them.
I am going to cheat a little bit as its my wedding anniversary at the weekend and we have a babysitter and are going out for a curry, so will start taking them on Sunday.
I am currently over 20stone, 5ft9\" and a size 26/28 and so keen to lose weight, will be combining with exercise as well as I am very paranoid about losing weight equalling horrible baggy skin and perhaps looking worse after losing weight.
I really need to do this as I have no confidence at all. I worry that my children could be bullied because theie mum is fat and its time to take control of my life.
Has anyone combined taking orlistat with a slimming world diet? I was wondering if the two combined would help focus, with the weekly weigh ins etc, and just to be aware of the fat content of anything that I may eat?
I think i need a lot of hand holding over the next few weeks and am very concerned about bowel control/leaking as I work full time, ok its in an office but the toilet is a long way from where I sit.
Thanks for any words of advice.
