I tried orlistat about a year ago, but a couple of weeks after starting my family life went to hell in a handbasket - we live on the south coast but family up in Yorkshire/Lancs, a cancer scare, a breakdown, a death due to medical negligence all in a couple of months, too many things to have to deal with all at once and think about dieting. I'm the eldest daughter so it mainly lands on my doorstep to sort out, despite being 5 hours drive away and having 3 kids of my own!
Anyway, I started again today. Took a lot of convincing to get the tablets - the doctor I had an appointment with has the attitude 'well, if my (size 8 - snigger) jeans feel a bit tight I just eat a bit less so you should do the same' :roll: I basically told her that despite her thoughts on the tablets, this is an informed decision that I am making for me, I fit the criteria and am entitled to have a choice. And that diabetes, heart disease, and other obesity related illnesses are very expensive to treat, more so that the cost of the tablets.
I am the heaviest I've ever been, but am determined.
