Hi all,

I am a newbie to this site and this is my first day on orlistat.

I must admit if i had read this site first i may not have took this drug! :lol:

I have quite a lot of weight to loose but i think i am in the right frame of mind now to do it! and hopefully if i have any bad days i can post on here and get advise and help :D

Cheers Dawney

    Hi skye,

    How have you found it the first couple of days?

    Have you noticed a difference?

    I am really wary about what i'm eating now, especially after reading some of the stories on here :lol:

    Hoping this is going to work :D

    Hi Dawney,

    Ive been fine on the accidents....just helluva windy( and can I say,it certainly doesn`t smell like rose petals... :lol: ).BUT,did it

    Ive been REALLY strict with my fat intact. TRYING to keep each meal around 5gms of fat. If u overdo ur fat intake....thats when u get the orange oil poo`s.

    What I have noticed now if that my own poo`s (god what a how can I put it....are \"floaty\". Presumably, thats my body starting to get rid of the non absorbed fat. The point of the tabs is to prevent/block the body absorbing a 3rd of the fat from what we encourage the body to burn of the fat we already have stored.

    I don`t feel as bloated...and I can feel a little difference around my mid section.

    So BRING IT ON!!! :lol:

    Hi all, I have finally seen the o/

    yesterday when i went to the loo it was a lot looser than normal and there was the oil :lol:

    had to phone hubby to tell him :lol:

    i must admit i had 2 like that yesterday but today i seem to be ok, the only different thing that i did was when i had my lunch i was out and had forgot to take the pills with me, so took it when i got home which was less than an hour later, i am wondering if that was the reason why that happened :roll:

    anyway not feeling so left out
