    Turvell, try the blue buddies first before drastic measures like the gastric band. form the information I hav e gleaned from this forum, the pills encourage and supports you to make healthy choices too, whihc is not how I understand the band to work. x

    no the band just makes your stomach small so you feel full after a tiny bit of food. but it is risky and is for ever as cant be removed

    Don't be too hard on yourself ladies. This is my 6 th week on Orlistat so far I've lost 12 lb, my first 2 weeks I lost 6 lb then on my 4 th week weigh in I'd lost 9 lb. I too was really disappointed but I'd rather lose slowly than too quick (keeps me more determined)

    This was advertised on all chemists posters etc to promote Ali - or whatever it's called! Bit peeved to hear it as the exceptionally low fat diet and allllll the workouts I've done this week is apparently all down to the tablets!! -I've lost just over 5 lbs

    Hi Ladies, sorry for the delay in replying, had to do some work - how very rude : )) x

    I am going to stick at it because I have nothing to gain by stoppoing. a loss is a loss and i will take some of that! A big loss would be blooming faaaantastic tho! xx

      Yeah! stick with it Andrea!....

      I am not weighing myself at all, I have been on them 6 days now and dont feel like I have lost anything!...I am trying to get used to portion control and the ap *My Fitness Pal* Britney recommended is helping me a great deal.

      I have over 6 stones to loose gulp! :-(  I try not to think about how long its going to take, all I know is it took me three years to put it all on.

      As you rightly said, you have nothing to loose by stopping these blue buddies.

      I must admit I am really scared my doctor will not give me a 2nd month if I dont do well on these and I was not even told how much I need to loose in a month in order to be kept on them, does anyone know?

      Britney is always happy to help out others with sensible advise, and is truly an inspiration to me because of her massive weight loss..

       

                             A  big thank you to you Britney! x x x x

      5%???...Maybe its something to do with the BMI?

      Think I should have put some lead weights in my pocket when the doc first put me on the scales! ROFL

      Your too kind thankyou for your lovely words i've gone red lol. seriously thankyou so much x

      Don't worry even if you lose the smallest amount they will still give them what weight are you now? I was told when i started i had to lose 5% of my weight not fat and it will only be a few pounds! if they do get funny just show them a food diary and say they are the only thing that keeps you on the straight and narrow but believe me they will give them.

      Like yourself my last few stone went on very quickly probably didn't help that i gave up smoking and ate even more chocolate at the time!

      I never thought i lost anything in the first month but lost over a stone in 4 weeks i will say i felt less bloated though.

      You can do it and 6 stone will come off in no time if i can do it anyone can x
