Hi all

Been taking Orlistat for 3 days now. Been really good watching what I eat, can't excercise at the moment as I am nursing a sprained ankle.

Found eveything ok just felt a bit sick after my main meal each night, did anyone else have this?

Hope it works as I have 4 stone to lose :shock:

    Hi,

    have been on orlistat for 5 days now, no feelings of sickness but have experienced some of the other dreaded side effects!!! even with a low fat diet and being very good. Hope it works for us all, keep checking in and we can all motivate each other when the going gets tough.

    I'm on day 2 and so far so good!

    I'm not too sure if I'm managing to stay on a very low fat diet but htere's been no obvious side effects so far! touch wood!

    I think the hardest thing is not grabbing something (usually high fat) every time I sit down. I've got problems with my back so spend a lot of time either sitting or lying down and usually eating!

    I'm hoping to lose just less than three stone, I know I'm never ever going to be skinny I just want to go into shops and take things off the rails istead of first looking for the size 20+ first!

    Good luck with your diet anyway, it's nearly eleven o'clock at nigh and I'm just about to eat half a tin of low fat rice pudding with fresh rasberries....my life is so exciting!

    Hi, iam on day 9, having some side effects but managle.m Not having any treats at all, feel very motivated at present. One week weigh in on my scales and have lost 3 lbs. However can't stop myself jumping on the scales and feeling a bit disapointed as no further loss yet. Don't know if my expectations are too high. Just feel that i have been giving %100 per cent both diet and exercise.
