Start Weight 19st 11lbs
4 weeks 18st 11lbs
Well i had heard about Orlistat and after fighting steroids for 6 years which i have in my spine and hips in surgery every 6 months.. we decided that i was turning into a bouncing ball shape. I did a diary for the doctor and with limited mobility what exercise i did. He decided that the 3lb weight gain every week was the steroids so we decided to go and try this tablet.
Well the first week i took 60mg of the stuff and to be honest i was horrified at the orange monster effect when i was going to the loo.. this made me more conscious about what i was eating and read up more about it and it stated no more that 30g of fat a day or you will see the orange monster effect..
Actually was horrified a couple of weeks ago when i was just about to go out the door and hubby said erm have you wet yourself.. i thought he was been funny, i said no why, so he took a picture of my jeans.. and the orange monster had made an appearance. Although embarassed it made me think more about the fat content, if your seeing the orange monster you are overdosing on fat.
So i booked into a gym and yes i am big and no am not ashamed of my weight as its a medical condition, so have gone to aqua aerobics as its more gentle on the limbs and gone back to swimming and saunas.
i have also looked again at my fat intake and swopped out things and not seen the orange monster for over a week.. so must be good.
Well i have a long way to go on these, i have to be weighed in weekly by our live wire team as our gps and council have a health thing going on and i have to go and see my doctor ever month to get another month of tablets.
My healthy team expect you to loose 5 percent of your weight in 12 weeks, i have done it in 3 weeks... i am now aiming to loose another 11lbs before end of September as i have lots of events to go to..
So am looking for Buddys who want to go on a long journey together
