    I just joined in Friday and started taking my tablets on Friday. Also been good for me so far and finding the forum very helpful.

    I just read loads of posts and get lots of helpful tips and great things to eat...

    Never been part of a forum before but my boyfriend belongs to lots and I used to get so cross at the amount of time he spent reading posts but now for the first time i realise why...I cant moan anymore :D

    Also feel inspired by people that have lost and make sure I do my best to avoid the ORANGE OIL!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Keep us up-to-date on your progress etc...

    Thanks for your reply, Pearl. i never saw the interest in forums until i joined this one either. its been really helpful to me even in the few days since ive found it.

    A friend of mine who's taking alli had fish and chips the other day and she was shocked when she got the dreaded orange oil. I had to laugh, bless her!

    Lets hope we can stick to the low fat options! Keep us posting on how your doing too!

    Vic :D

    Will do....

    Phoning my nurse 2mw to make an appointment for my first weigh in. It is so nerve raking though...I have been trying so hard over the past few days, not had side effects so assuming im doing well. I have taken measurements to do once a month so I can see the inches come off if the kilo's dont budge :?

    Chat soon Vic
