    Hi all,

    My stats are:

    Age 46

    Height: 5ft 2\" (and eyes of blue!!)

    Start Weight 15st 8lbs

    Started end of May but can't remember the date and had 3 weeks off to go on holiday in July.

    Didn't have any weigh ins at Drs until Sept and weighed 14st 8lbs then

    now weigh 14 stone and due a weigh in end of this week, but not positive I've lost anything as been on and off it this month.

    Would love to get down to 10 stone and if I ever achieve it will rethink my goals then - it's been about 25yrs since I weighed 10 stone so it's hard to remember what I felt like then - can't see me getting to my ideal weight for my height which is something ridiculous like 7st 12lbs!!Ha Ha Ha!! Still you never can say never - watch this space.

    I know I don't want to be obese at 50 and so I've got 3 1/2 yrs to get there.

    Well done everyone on their losses to date and will update on my next weigh in.

    Jane

    45year old woman

    Height 5ft 6

    start date 19/11/2008

    start weight 17stone 11lbs

    I know that I can lose the weight as I lost it just over a year and a half ago - I was then weighing 14 stone at the time but needed a major op, which meant I sat around and did nothing for a long time. After that, I stopped exercising and then the old habits came back and on came the weight.

    I am more worried about keeping it off afterwards. It appears nobody has been on the tablets for more than two years, so what happens once the weight is off??

    Kayos -

    Well done, you must be pleased :-)

    Guest - hiya's

    \"I am more worried about keeping it off afterwards. It appears nobody has been on the tablets for more than two years, so what happens once the weight is off??\"

    I do believe you can only take the tablets for a maximum of one year, so for myself after the year is up I'm hoping thanks to the blueys I will of trained myself mentally as to what I can and cannot eat, and as I'm getting fitter and able to do more with each lb I lose I'll be able to keep up with the exercise and somehow keep the weight off *crosses fingers*

    this is of course just my opinion and I'm no expert .. so basically I'm jumping to my own conclusions and hopes lol

    Kaelea..

    Yes I am pleased ... not as good as the first month of course..but off is better than on.. no matter how small..

    I was led to beleive that you could be on the tablets for 2 years.. (as the research says that there are no records for people being on them for more than 2 years)..

    I would think it would be up to the individual doctors..

    I suppose I am apprehensive..of being \"on my own\"..BUT I am like you.. hopefully once its off.. THERE IS NO WAY I AM LETTING IT BACK ON!

    I could be wrong..BUT...

    I think you can stay on them for a year..then they take them from you for a month.. and provided you MAINTAIN the weight..(Or lose!) if you still have weight to lose after then they will give you them back for another year..

    I think its so you don't get too dependant on them..

    But my doc did say about giving them out as a \"maintenance\" tablet.. meaning that you can use them to keep you there..but only after you have proved you won't overeat again..

    Just started on the tablets on Saturday.

    Weighed in at the doctors last week at 128kg.

    Age 45 and 5'2\".

    Not enjoying the tablets so far and if the side effects continue like last night not sure I can go on with them.

    How long it take everyone else's guts to normalise?

    Jane - well done, your doing really well, .. gives us all encouragement :-)

    Artrutx - I'm sorry to hear your not coping too well with the blueys, things do get better as you learn what your body can and can not tolerate,

    Its really early doors for you yet, stick with a low fat diet and the side effects should stop pretty soon, I know if I've eaten too much fat I generally have side effects the following day then its back to normal

    good luck!
