Well lovely people, my doctor has taken me off Orlistat - the reason? - because we are ttc (trying to concieve) something she KNEW when she prescribed them - but five weeks on and 1 stone 3lbs lost, she has suddenly decided it's too much of a risk in case i fall pregnant. This all happened last thursday, but it's actually taken me until now to calm down and feel able to post about it, i was so frustrated and upset - it felt like a total slap in the face.
ANYWAY, i am no longer on the pills, but, i am still dieting, i had a swapover day on friday and started following a low-carb diet on saturday. I chose to change because i have pcos, and now i'm not constrained by the pills - a way of eating that cuts out the sugars is the best for me.
So, here comes the rub - i'd really like to stay on here for the weekly weigh-in, and just the general support of weightloss, regardless of the way i'm doing it - what i mean is - it gives me a boost reading how you're all doing and keeps me focused to keep going. BUT, being that i'm no longer on Orlistat, i fully understand if you'd rather i leave.
