Thought I'd say hello and that I'm so pleased to have found you all here!
Today is my first day on Orlistat- and I can't tell you how nervous I was before taking that first bright blue capsule! I lurked here last night and I think it's what stopped me bottling out.
I know I need to get to grips with this- as, like most people, I suspect, it's got to the point where I have to do something!!!!
My weight at the moment is 13 stone, which, when you're 4ft 11, isn't good!!! I'm not so keen on resembling a giant cottage loaf and I also have a lot of back and joint pain, so really need to get the weight shifting.
I'm actually a clerk at my local WW group and did pretty well with WW until I became quite ill. I've had an interesting year (including a biopsy and a brain scan).
Part of my condition (a lifelong one) is that I get tired very easily and quickly which has meant my physical activity went down. Of course, the weight went up and the pain got worse (more weight to carry) so being heavier made me even more tired, so less exercise and so on....
Last week I came to the end of my tether and my GP prescribed Orlistat as a helping hand in trying to break that vicious circle.
Soooo- I'm back on track with WW and have had my first day on Orlistat.
So far no nasty effects, but then I've eaten [i:89edcb382e]really[/i:89edcb382e] low fat stuff today because I've been a bit nervous about any side effects. I suppose I'll learn where the limits are and so on.
Anyhow- 'nuff waffle about me- I just wanted to say that I'm already finding so many useful tips and information on here.and I'm looking forward to learning a lot more.
Good to be here!
