    yes the tablets do work BUT you have to give them a few days to kick in,

    you may have read on hear people saying they have lost this amout or that amount in ? days, everyone is diferent so be patient with them and things will start to happen,

    re not going to the toilet, it does say in the leaflet that you can become constipated on these, just make sure you drink lots of water and i mean lots

    iv been on them for some time now and my weight loss is slow going, its not that im eating the wrong stuff or eating too much, its due to not getting exercise due to disabilies preventing me from exercising like everyone else would

    anyway things will start to happen, give it time

      Hi Britney

      things going slowly but hey they are going!

      i was taken off of the tabs because i was putting weight on? but have been re given them by the Dr and have lost a small amount but hey something is better than nothing at all,

      as said i think its because im not very mobile due to walking probs so cant do as much eexercise as others would be able to do

      i know i need to loose weight, currently at 21.5, but i dont look to bad what with being 6'7'', i am able to carry it of more than someone shorter

      anyway hows your jouney going, you dont seem to be on the site answering question so much these days, not that im on it much myself, it does make me laugh when people start taking and expect results 2 hours later? but hey,

      anyway ta ta for now

      jim

      Hi Jim,

      how did you put weight on with the tablets and yes i have lways said any amount off is better than on keep at it your lucky you have height on your side do keep at it you will get to where you want to be.

      lol i know 2 minutes later more like-no i stopped coming on due to life and the fact that others were copying my advice yet had only been on them 5 minutes and never saying thanks i cant be doing with all that

      My WLJ is starting again as i had a little boy 6 weeks go he is worth every pound i put on i waited years to become a mum i wouldn't have him if i hadn't lost 9 stone to start with.

      I did update the blog and i will do again soon i am glad you are well heres to us losing all our weight in 5 minutes lol

      Hi Britney

      firstly a huge congrats on the birth of your little boy, you must be sooooooo pleased,

      re the weight gain, weight gain is according to the GP surgery as according to my scales, when i did weigh myself , i was losing still, i did hear all there scales were out at surgery when weights n measures tested them?, so thats why they have allowed me on them again,

      im sorry but i think you are out of order not blogging, how else am i or others meant to give advice,,LOL

      take care

      Jim

    This means you are eating the right amount of fat. You only get side effects if you eat too much fat in your meals. As you go along you will find that you might start to experience some side effects as yoou manage to get the balance right in your meals, but should manage just fine. Stick with it, it's working slowly, but surely.

      Hi creamy. I was just wondering what side effects you have had. I have only had the obvious 1, and I have started to feel sick for a short while shortly after eating. But, I have started to take multi vitamins to help me along, I can't hit my goals of vitamins needed daily according to my fitness app.

    Hey, they do work. I wondered that when i started taking them if they worked or not. Be hsppy you've no side effects!! I suffer almost every morning and im on a low fat low cal low carb diet. Been on them a month and iv lost over a stone so far. But being on these pills forces you to a better lifestyle too so either way its win win xx

    Good luck x
