Hi everyone.

I'm new to this. After god knows how many unsuccessful attempts to lose weight I read about orlistat, bought it online and began taking it immediately.

1 week on and its going well. I've stuck to a low fat diet and not had any side effects at all. I've even been out for a meal earlier this evening and had low fat options without anyone noticing.

I so hope I can keep it up and that this will work for me.

I'm 50 years old and need to lose 3 stone. I am fed up of years of feeling bad about myself and wearing baggy clothes to cover myself up.

I want to set myself free.

    I agree if you are paying more than a price of a prescription you should visit he GP's and get them to prescribe it or at least monitor you whilst you are on it.

    Look forward to seeing your progress
