Hi everyone, I am new to orlistat and started Sunday 12th June 2016. My starting weight was 16:09 and I weighed this morning (3rd day), I weigh 16:05 [eek]  4 pounds drop!  [cheesygrin]

Now that I know it’s working I will stick to what I am doing: I am eating 1200 calories a day & recording everything on my Fitness pal. Some days I do go over but if I go over its only healthy food nothing naughty. 

​Taking these tablets has made me very conscious about what I am eating and I do not want any nasty incidents. I am 5ft 9 and I am aiming to get to 11.07 stones.


I was 11.07 before but after getting married 2 years ago I started to put on so much weight ( Happy weight_ LOL

That really needs to go now as I have had enough of feeling fat and ugly.


I hope we all lose weight, if we stick to it we can do it.

      We've all been there! The problem with curry and similar dishes that contain fat as well as colouring (curry poder, turmeric, chilli powder etc) is that the oil picks up the colouring, it's not digested out as it passes through your system  and the end product can be very vivid!!
