    Hi @SAF79 everyone is different. Have you weighed yourself yet? how much do you have to lose? in my first month i lost over a stone but as i said everyone is different. You do have to stick to the rules of the 5g rule and it will work x

      Hi @saf79 96kg is NOT massive first of all! i started at 19.5 stone that is massive lol. Before i go on you have had a baby 13 weeks ago please do not beat yourself up over weight!.

      The oil will come if you eat anything over 5g of fat per 100g (this is labeled on every food packet you buy) do not go over 5g of fat per100g and no more than 15g per meal.

      There are treats you can have so your not totally deprived its not all salad and these treats are under 5g of fat.

      I would suggest walking which is ideal for you pound the pavements with the pram and costs nothing.

      Please do start eating the right things or your going to keep having these side effects. If you look on my profile or search 'Xenical' on the search bar a lot of my posts come up for what i eat.

      B. Shreddies

      L if i am hungry soup or fruit/rice cakes/jacket spud

      d something wth quorn (don't eat meat anymore) you can eat certain meat i just don't

      treats are fruit , alpro chocolate desserts. hm smoothies or yoomoo frozen yogurt or a ww sponge pudding with lf custard

      ALSO cook everything in frylight spray and no cheese apart from laughing cow light.

      They do work i was size 24 in jan 2013 now am a 12-14 i have lost over 100lbs

      Good luck you can do it please post back if you need any help when do you get weighed? let me know how you get on x

      Hi Safa your welcome smile  you are not a whale! please don't put yourself down about it you have chosen to lose weight and are doing something about it it's better than some people talking about it all the time and not actually doing anything about their weight. I use MFP too it's great to jot everything down and keep an eye on what im eating. Take it easy on yourself enjoy your new baby and keep to the 5g rule otherwise you will keep getting the orange oil and a tummy bug. Are you getting weighed every week? or every month? i get weighed every 4 weeks as i have said many times on here before weighing every week would drive me nuts but all drs are different. Don't worry what people think at the pool they are probably thinking the same about themselves. Believe me it will all be worth it in the end it's one of the best things i have ever done if i hadn't i would probably have been even bigger LOL hope your ok and if need any help/support about the tablets just mesage me back smile X

      Hi saf glad you doing ok. To answer your question i don't really know? although i have seen stories of people eating a high fat diet and staying the same weight or gaining so i guess no?! you could ask your gp. The weight will drop off before you know it Well done on swimming also i would say at each goal treat yourself and not to something small either i always treated myself to a pair of shoes at every stone it gives you something to aim for don't buy too many clothes though cos believe me if you stick to the tablets you will be buying new clothes every month/2months i had to stick all mine on ebay hope your having a good day x

      Hi saf in my first 4 weeks i hardly did any excercise and still lost over a stone we had bad snow at the time and i work from home sometimes- i was basically stuck in for about 2 weeks and still lost of course excercise is better for you but don't beat yourself up about it running after a baby is a work out in itself and of course your doing your swimming which is really good. I didn't get oil because i eat the right things however i was qiven the tablets 3 years ago and i tested them out at the time and got side effects cut a long story short i had a lot going on at the time includihg moving house and stayed on them for about a month and gave up fast forward to Jan 2013 gave it my all and here i am never ate anything fattening this time around as i had the side effects in 2010 lets just say i was at home at the time thankfully and i would never want that to happen again. Size 16 is not massive even a new top in your current size can make you feel better i know it's weird but i get drained when i buy something and by the time i get round to wearing it and it's too big believe me you will know what i mean its good and draining at the same time. If you are going to eat something fattening stop taking them 48 hours before the meal then retake 48hours after the meal.

      How much oil are you getting at the moment what are you eatiing each day? please make sure your drinking lots of water aswell yep pain in the rear exit to keep weeing but it helps with bloat and weightloss. I do fry but use frylight saying that i don't fry a lot but you can eat fried food if its 5g per 100g and fried in frylight x

      Hi Safa you could be getting it from the takeaway unless you were getting it before you ate that if your still getting it please post what you eat on a typical day. You will be yourself again it can't be long until your weigh in!i never felt in the first 4 weeks like i had lost weight i felt unbloated though and got a shock when i lost over a stone in 4 weeks but everyone is different even if it was 2lb it's better to have 2lb off than 2lb on. Me amazing lol aww thankyou. Are you taking the 3 tablets a day i know some people only take 1 or 2. If your struggling with recipies or food choices please post back and i will be happy to reply back have a good day smile x

      Hi Safa

      The Ritz are well above the fat content allowed on the tablets that would cause the side effects also do you know how much fat is in your homemade snacks? if the answer is no that's where the side effects will come. You will have lost weight don't worry. Alo with chicken don't eat thigh it's too fattening for the tablets stick to breast also make sure no full fat mayo and if you are going to use butter i suggest literally a scrape x
