Hey everyone!

Anyone obsessed with the scales like me??? I weigh myself most days!!! :?

I've just started my 2nd month of orlistat and only got weighed by the nurse on mon (lost 9lbs) but im driving myself crazy cause they're now not moving!!!! i am eating low fat but recently found myself snacking more in the eve still on low fat things but in the first 3 weeks i only snacked on fruit! :shock:

I have been a little obsessed with these tablets (so my friends tell me!)and im only cooking for me so been eating mostly ready meals like i did before.

I've got the book from the British Heart Fundation but dont really find it that useful cause im not cooking! :?

I eat a lot of snack a jacks which i thought were fine but when i spoke to xenical map people she said no more than 5grams of fat in 100g and no more than 15g fat in meal. Now snack a jacks are fine per pack only 1.7g but per 100g 7.5g!!! does that mean i cant have them???

Sorry im sooo confused!!!!! :oops: :cry:

    hi there,

    i eat snack a jacks, and they are fine as long as you only have one small bag, for evening munchies i have fat free yoghurts, or sugarfree sweets, i hate the times between 7.30-9 when the kids are in bed, i always want to nibble.

    Hey Kaz....You can have them. But keep a count of ur more than 15g in each meal.........(or 50 total for the day). Mibbe thats where ur losing count. I know I did that with the calories.

    I got a call from Xenicol people yesterday. The girl was very nice and so helpful. She said not to get too hung up on the pounds coming off. Its more to do with ur body shape changing and losing inches.

    Keep ur chin up
