Hi everyone

I was recently prescribed orlistat by my doctor, just before christmas. I've struggled to stick to it over the festive period and my 1st weigh in is on the 16th January. I figure that I've got 2 weeks to work hard at it and hopefully I will lose some weight. I've got a lot to lose and see this as make or break. It's really comforting to know there are other people out there going through the same thing.

Here's my stats incase you're interested:

Age 22

Height 5'6\"

Starting wieght 18st 10lb

First weigh in 16 Jan 09.

Good luck everyone.xx

    Eeek the toilets at work are broken, all the water pipes are frozen! Not sure what I'm gona do if I suddenly need the toilet!? Been eating heathily but still some \"problems\", mainly a bit of orange oil. It appears that it doesn't matter what I eat this still happens.

    Does anyone else suffer from the same problem? I have noticed that the better I eat the better I'm feeling in general, less bloated etc!

    Hope everyone is doing well.xx

    Still they've nearly all gone now and so tomorrows a brand new day and not getting weighed until 19th so got week and half to work it off.

    Good luck to all the newbies on the blueys.
