    Hi Dawn,

    I think the bad tummy was probs a bit of both, your boy starting school (ahh bless!) and you have prob eaten some fat as it only happens (in my experience) when you've eaten fat :shock: Hope you made it to school and back safely :lol: :!:

    I've tried to eat VERY low fat, never had any accidents but didn't lose any weight either :!: As its been said on here you need to eat fat for the blueys to work and you must've eaten some fat in something to get the yukky oil :!: I know what you mean when you said you're fed up with it all, I feel the same, wind that is REALLY bad! constipation! belly aches! headaches! orange oil! :cry: but having said all that if they worked I'd deffinately put up with it :roll:

    My 'Orlistat blues' is the fact they don't seem to be working for me :cry: Been on them 8 weeks now got my 2nd month weigh in at 5pm so will be posting later :wink:

    Hope li'l un enjoyed his first day at school :D

    Hi Dawn

    Hope you are feeling better!! I haven't had a tablet for the past two days as I have been on a training course and after having macaroni cheese (& chips!) for lunch today, I am now suffering the old stomach cramps and orange oil :oops:

    Thats what I get for being smart and trying to cheat :lol: !!

    Hope your bambino got on ok today!!

    Hi

    I see lots of kids start school and he will settle down - it takes a bit of time for some. Did he go to preschool?

    Keep your focus on the diet cos I know stress etc are bad news for me and all I do is eat then but I am trying to exercise the stress off cyxling swimming or boxing on the Wii !! And it works cos you feel better from the exercise and smug cos you haven't eaten rubbish.

    Keep going!!

    hi dawn. Don't know how many tablets u taking a day but my Dr. advised me to take only 1 for first 4 days (at my biggest meal) to let my body get used to them and then two a day for next 4 days. Seemed to work for me because apart from a couple of days when I had stomach cramps have been ok.

    I've had 4 kids start school over the years and two settled in really quick and two took ages. Hope yours settle quickly. Good luck with the tablets.! Pat.

    Hi Dawn

    Just to reassure you

    I am an early years teacher and settling new children is my job

    Believe me they do all settle at school and the tears and tantrums at home rarely continue after you have left them at school

    There was one little girl this week who cried profusely when her mum left her for the firs time but only untill she couldn't see her anymore then the tears stopped and she played happily until it was time to tidy up when the tears started again just in time for her mum to return.

    I think starting school is much worse for you than for him! You have to go home and worry while he can get on with being distracted by toys, fun and friends.

    Please try not to worry and enjoy your new free time

    Hope next week is better
