Yes, you read that right - I have actually gained 3lbs! I'm gutted.

I have been pretty good though not perfect admittedly thanks to giving in to temptation at a kid's party on Saturday & spending Sunday with the in-laws (2 meals cooked for me so no control over what I was given & how it was cooked) & the last couple of days the other half has been in charge as I've broken toe & can't stand for long.

Unlike previous attempts to lose weight I am not letting this upset me & give up. There are going to be bumps in the road & this is 1 such bump. Going to give it my all & hopefully lose 5lbs in the coming week to hit 2st in 8 weeks...bring it on!!!

You may find I'm posting a lot to keep my motivation going!

    Good, don't let it stress you! At least you can see where you slipped and why you've put on 😑 and enjoyed it 😉

    Keep going we all weaken at times 😁

    I had to google what the heck "losing stones" meant. I figured it was weight loss but wondered if people were referring to gallstones or kidney stones?! I'm from the US.

      Yeah we weigh in pounds (lbs not £ ) and stone here! There are 14 pounds in 1 stone... and 1 stone = around 6.35kg smile

    you got this, its just a blip, we all suffer for the same totm, its vile, but think of the loss you have when your body flushes all that excess water out, well thats what im relying on this week lol

    Well Cath I weighted myself...and my first week on Orlistat... I gained 1.1 kg (2.4 lbs). Not sure how that is even possible considering I have been good, my tummy looks smaller (less bloating?), and I have been excercising etc...Not to mention I probably went to the toilet more times this week (and not oily accidents) then any other time in my life. 

    Since it is week one i will put it down to my body adjusting and possibly the fact that my TOTM is due next week. 

    Fingers crossed for week two.

      Is exercise new to you? as unfrtunately any new exercise performed will make your muscles retain water whilst they repair, this should even out within a couple weeks,

      you also need to be trying to montior your calorie intake to make sure your not over eating on calories even though them pills do help, you have to do all the work.

      keep going, i gained on my first week, it was a combination of the pills not fully intergrated in my body and my body was new to exercise

      No I have been exercising for years, and doing this particular program since October. 

      I monitor my calories with a well known app (not sure if we are allowed to list it here). Input all my food and montinor calories and macros. 

      I started these pills because after working for the last year and a half I recorded every work out, and everything I have eaten and ''I should be losing'' by all math and science and whatever...but I wasn't. So the doc said here try these and out I went.

      That sounds like me! I track calories on mfp. But I use the tdee method so I don't eat exercise cals. Maybe your retaining water fir a reason either way keep persevering

      Leah I would think that 4 lbs over three days is more likely you have been eating high salt and high sugar which will make you retain water. No possibly way to eat that much food to gain 4 lbs of FAT in 3 days. ( I mean unless you are eating 3 large stuffed crust pizzas a night or something). More likely you have been having chinese buffets, or takeaways with a lot of salt and sugar which binds water molecules and makes you ''gain'' crazy amounts of weight. If you get back on plan within 2-3 days that 4 lbs will magically disappear again.
