    Hi karen,

    2 stone in 8 weeks?! That's amazing! What was your diet/exercise like? I just started today so I need tips & hints! I was meant to start this three weeks ago....kept putting it off and then this morning saw on the scales that I gained 6 lbs (how's that even possible?!) needless to say I rushed to the pharmacy with my prescription in hand!

    Hi Karen. I have just just started taking them 3weeks ago and I don't see much difference. I don't have a very high fat diet. So I don't understand what it wil do to help me. Any advice would b appreciated.

    Hi!

    I was on orlistat few years ago and I lost so much weight must have been around 2-3 stones. I've put the weight back on after I stopped taking them (I blame Xmas)

    I'm starting to take them again and I was too hoping to look for a buddy to share my experience with and tips and for general help.

    If you would like to buddy up with me I would love it. Whoever wants to join we should have a group on what's app so everyone can share the daily meals and exercise how about it?

    Hi All,

    I would love to have an Orlistat buddy and the whatsapp group sounds amazing. A weekly weigh in would be a good idea to motivate us. I'm 12 stone 6lb and 5 foot 5 and need to loose 2 stone 6lb. I have a holiday in 56 days too so I would really appriciate any support x
