Hello everyone, looking for advice and support group really. I have hypothyroidism and gained 3 stone in a year, I was put on Levothyroxine but didn't lose any weight despite my levels being a lot better, despite eating really healthy and going to the gym 3-4 times a week. I desperately went to the Dr who has prescribed me Orlistat, As told I'm obese (absolutely mortified) I'm 5'6" and weigh and alarming 14st 5lbs. I did some research and was shocked and worried about some of the awful side affects, until I found this very useful site.
Even though I'm still a little worried after reading about people shi..ing themselves out shopping, I'd be mortified, all the cases I've read about accidents and leakage people had it didn't mention what they'd eaten and I'm hoping its because they ate high fat meals. I'm a healthcare trainer and really can't have an accident.
I took my first tablet 3 hours ago, I've eaten a low fat diet for 2 days, I haven't had any side effects yet but don't know how fast the tablets work, just hoping I don't Sh.t the bed whilst I'm asleep lol, have warned my poor husband.
Also next week I'm off to Ladies day and really want to enjoy my day.
