some of you 'old timers' might remember me
i started orlistat in summer '09 and they worked well for me, i have PCOS so weight gain is easy and loss is so difficult.
i lost 2 stone but near the end of my time on the tablets i was not really losing and my doc was considering stopping them if i didnt have a loss the next month, before the next weigh in it was my wedding and from the tuesday before to the tuesday after i put on 8lbs, i was so embarrassed and was convinced there was no way my doc would perscribe again so i didnt go back and tried to go it alone with healthy eating and exercise.
for a few months i managed to maintain my weight then i had a stressy time buying a house, then moving so my healthy eating and exercise went out the window, i got back on track and a month later fell and tore ligaments in my wrist which got me signed off work for 5 wks, i was so down n lonely, couldnt even go out for a walk after it snowed n got icy so in the first 3 weeks i comfort ate n sat around and put on more weight. i had enough of it all and took up jogging on my wiifit for up to an hour a day 3-4 times a week, behaved over xmas and went back to the gym as soon as i could
i'm about 4lbs away from my heaviest which i was when i started orlistat in '09, i go to the gym 3 times a week and also do a zumba class and i'm watching what i eat but the weights not shifting much at all
i have moved GP now and i am considering seeing my new doc about going on orlistat again, i'm just nervous that they won't be as understanding as my old GP
