I am new to this and I started Orlistat on Friday. I will tell you my story......
until I was about 24 and had my daughter i was a size 12 then i didnt take to motherhood well (!) and went up to a size 22 at my heaviest. I never weighed myself as I always go by how i feel and dress size. I managed to lose a bit of weight then in 2008 had my second daughter, now I am getting on for a size 22 again and feeling very depressed. I went to doc about something completely different but was told it was due to my weight and poss diabetes and that i weighed 18 stone!!!! my bmi is 38 and i am mortified, i always knew i was big but clearly burying my head in the sand (or cream cakes!!!!!) i feel i blame my weight for everything (lack of sex drive, tiredness) so now i am determined to do something about it.
anyway, doc has given me a trial of orlisat which i started friday but (sorry to be vulgar!) i havent had a poo yet and was told it would be oily, but nothing as yet!!! any ideas?!?!?
sorry to drone on but i know my newly found motivation will disappear soon!!!
i weighed myself on monday morning and it said i was 7lb lighter, surely thats not right????? (my scales weighted me at 18 stone on friday too!)
