Week 2.... Another 5lbs gone! Hallelujah!

Posted , 9 users are following.

Well folks its my second week on Orlistat and I have lost another 5lbs! That is 1st 2lbs in 2 weeks!! Im gobsmacked and almost didnt want to post, because I know there are some people who only have small losses that may feel despondent that they are not losing similar amounts.... BUT... and its a big but, I do have seven stone to lose, so the first couple of weeks Im going to see big weight losses, added to the fact that I havent dieted for a couple of years properly!

Im delighted obviously. Work colleagues have noticed (yes its come off other places than my ankles!) and the bad ankle I had, has not given me as much gip recently. Yes its been tough some days, when I want to munch on my own arm with hunger, but I know that the results will be worth it and I look to the bigger picture. Im still having the odd headache, but I find it is when I havent had enough water.

SO.... people, keep at it. It DOES work. And heres to a great week for everyone!  cheesygrin
