Hi guys, been following this forum for a few days and great info on here to us newbies trying this medication. 

I was really apprehensive and all most quitting before I even started having read some of the reviews. This forum helped me decide to take that leap forward as I simply can't stand being so fat. This hot weather just crushes me  even more as I struggle to find clothes that fit and make me feel comfortable. 

So, day 1 has commenced. Wish me well and will keep blogging for support. I have 5 stone I want to lose. 

Thanks

      Paranoia makes the noises and feelings so much worse but do as needed (in reference to fat intake) and you wont be suffering or needing to hide indoors. The first couple of days may be getting rid of fat previously consumed but onwards and upwards! biggrin

      Think your right, my mind made my tummy  gurgle lol 

      Rather be in the comfort of my home for first few days.  Was very careful what I ate yesterday but day before was chocolate. 

      How long have you been on them and what have you lost so far, if you don't mind me asking?

      Well i may be talking like a pro but its only my second day but with my scroll length of dieting history i pretty much think i have it covered.

      Took me 5 weeks to pluck up the courage to actually swallow a tablet but hey down the hatch it went (like everthing else hence me being in this position) and the new me has begun. 

      Ive got 5-6 stone to lose to be where i want to be but to be honest i dont have a clue what that weight loss will feel like as i have never been slim. Just want to be healthier, fit in high street shop clothes, get into normal sized chairs and not have to plan my route out of any room with the largest spaces!!

      I'm 28 and want to try for a baby but have to be realistic and give the littlen a chance of a healthy life so i need to be the good example!

      People are amazing on here so just post what you are feeling and people soon pick you up!

      I understand how you feel. It's awful carrying this extra weight. I've stopped going out as much as it's too much drama finding something I feel and look good in. More than often I end up crying and then cancel my plans. 

      I can't even wear skirts any more as my legs just rub at the top and become really sore, I knew then things had to change. 

      Well missy, I look forward to this journey with you and to welcoming the new slim, happy us. 👍👏😉😉😃

      I shall toast to that with the pint of water i am currently holding! 

      Remember you dont need to suffer alone anymore, we are all in the same boat on here and have experienced the pain, dread, disappointment and fear of being overweight! xx

      Lol will cheers you to that hun. I read you meds to increase water intake due to bloating. Not sure if I can bloat out any more 🙊🙊🙊

      Thanks for the kind words and support. It's really motivating. Haven't told my friends or family yet as I tend to quit most things, so thought I would hold back for now.

      You are doing this for you so concentrate on that for the time being and once you get into a routine of things and people notice you dropping the weight then tell them....this needs to be on your terms this time and it is you who needs to take full control.

      Yep keep the water flowing as i do feel like a solid ball today but i know from the info on here that it passes after the first week.

      Good luck xx
