Just been and picked up my prescription and i must say im excited to be taking the plunge (yet again) into weight loss. Im a serial deiter, but always end up quiting and putting on what i had lost. I done great at weight watchers, always loosing every week but since gaining 3 stone since March 2010 (i have about 4 stone to loose) i am now back on the road to skinniness! I needed a kick start and asked my doctor if i could be prescribed Orlistat to help me, or frighten me into avioding the wrong foods. As i dont want to be having 'accidents' when im at work i thought this was a good option.
I must say though that reading through the posts i am now critical of how much Orlistat will actually help. At weight watchers i would usually loose somewhere between 2 and 4 pounds a week, there seems to a few people on here who are loosing that in a month! I would be devastated if i didnt loose a great deal in 4 weeks. I suppose the quicker it goes the quicker it goes back on, so i must think positively if im to stick at this
Also, Ive heard the first week you get the oily leeks, :shock: is that true? Im not looking forward to that, but to be fair who would! My doctor didnt give me much information on them at all apart from i have to go to a weight management meeting once a month but she hasnt told me if i have to book myself or if i get a letter through the post, does anyone else go to these groups?
I start tomorrow so will update on my progress.
Till next time
