I'm a newbie, just wanted to say hi and thanks.

I've been following all the help and advice on here for the last 2 weeks, that's when I first started Orlistat. So many times I could have cried when those stupid scales wouldn't budge and could have so easily thrown the towel in. Instead I came on here looked through the posts and kicked myself back up again. Thank you to you all.

I have a huge mountain to climb, I have many health problems and just need to lose this weight.

My scales hadn't moved at all but I went for my first weigh in today with the doc and he catergorically assures me I have lost [b:62f653cd97][size=18:62f653cd97]8lbs[/size:62f653cd97][/b:62f653cd97] in a fortnight. To say I'm over the moon is an understatement, now I'm crying but tears of happiness. (my home scales are rubbish)

I wanted to tell all the newbies truthfully, that if I can do it you can too. I was so sceptical, I never believed for 1 minute it would work, I'm so glad I was proved wrong LOL

Here's to the next chunk off my mountain.

Good luck to you all.

Sorry my first post was soooo long :oops:

    Thank you all very much, good luck to you all too.

    The doctor has warned me that it will slow down now and maybe I'll put a bit on while it stabilises itself but I'm prepared for that so I won't get discouraged but at the moment I'm on such a high I can't believe it. :D :D :D

    Maybe you should just get rid of your own scales then you wont be so down on yourself, when you're obviously doing so well

    Thanks twinkly, yes I am getting rid, I have become so totally obsessive about weighing, I would weigh 10 times a day maybe more every day (I'm so not exaggerating either) I permantly had the scales attached to my feet. It's just not good is it and could so easily have ruined everything I was trying so hard for. Next ([b:f68a713b7e]and only[/b:f68a713b7e]) weigh in in a fortnight with the doc from now on. It was such a huge surprise to know I'd done so well, I had lost another 4 pounds prior to this on my own (without orlistat) the fortnight before this one but it was such a battle and I didn't eat nearly as well.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Thats why I can`t have scales in the house...... :lol:

    I would drive myself mad jumping on and off them and would put me on a downer if I hadn`t lost anything.

    Normally, I activate the accounts the following working day but when I click on the link, it is saying that the user does not exist.

    Would you care to try registering again and I will activate your account in the morning for you.

    Hey, well that's really good! I'd be buzzin but to be honest, If I had lost that much I'd be kinda devestated. I'm just over double my ideal weight and I'd want the weight to drop off like you when you get a Lapbandā„¢ or Gastric Bypass but that will leave really baggy skin Blah! Anywho Carry on the way you're going and keep us posted! :D
