A visit to my doctor with an arthritic knee, and depression over how much weight I've put on has lead to me being prescribed orlistat.
Took me a week to start taking them as I heard some real horror stories, mostly abiut people pooing themselves
Wasn't going to take them at all until I had a chat with one of the girls in the chemist who had used them herself.
Been taking them for 3 days now, when I started I decided there would be no point messing about and I've completely switched to a low fat diet.. fruit and salad being the stable.
I currently weigh 100kg-15 stone... when I realised this in the doctors surgery I almost too a stroke!!
Have bought an electric treadmill, and weights etc (had to throw out the dining table to fit it all in haha)
Obviously I can only do shorts workouts due to my knee,
I'm not having any toilet problems at all.. but I think if I stop taking them there will be the temptation to eat chips and all the other rubbish I used to graze on .
I'm currently eating less than 1000 a day ( but being satisfied)
But in not burning that on the treadmill, I can burn up to 200 a day... so my question is ..how is this going to work ?
Many thanks for any advice in advance
