Hi,

I have been taking Orlistat now for nearly 2 weeks, I only lost 2lbs in the first week and not feeling very confident about weigh day on Thursday. I feel bloated, struggling to go to the toilet and generally don't feel like im loosing. Ive decided to get weighed weekly at boots and since starting to diet back in the middle of January I have lost 1 stone 2lbs.

I like to see quick results, and I feel i am constantly wondering if im lost if ive put on.

Just wondering if anyone has any advice

    Hi

    ive got atleast 6 stone to lose to be happy. Ive ordered the slimming world books through a friend as i simple don't have the time to attend. I feel as though in eating all the right things, salads, fruit, veg, meat, and trying for fat free or low fat yogurts etc, i just feel crap. Ive been swimming atleast twice a week, aquazumba and boxercise in a weekly basis. The last few weeks i felt great but now i feel right down and yuk.

    what about yourself? Have you much to lose?

    Keep up the good work, encouragement and support is what well all need. My doctor told me even if you loss a pound a week its 52 pound a year and its a loss. I am really hoping for atleast 2-3 lb a week i feel focused and ready for this. I sometimes find it hard as i work nightshifts and don't get to sleep the next day so im so tired and not being able to comfort eat with the worry of the side affects is the only thing keeping me going sometimes.
