I've had the most horrendous week - couldn't stop eating. Even ate lots of Christmas choccies, I'll be so glad when they've gone. How I managed to lose a pound I don't know because I didn't have any exercise either. Roll on the Spring.

    Hi Petal

    That's lucky, I had a similar week just after christmas but put on 2lb, I couldn't stop once I started! They have all gone now thankfully.

    Hi, I'm Monica - just started taking Orlistat yesterday. I'm just wondering if you were taking the pills when eating junk, or did you stop taking them for a while?

    I'm terrified of eating even one piece of candy (my obsession) because I'm afraid of what might happen with taking the pills at the same time?

    Looking forwatd to hearing back. Thanks!! :?

    monica theres 2 ways of looking at it:-

    you can use the tablets, stick to them religously and loose the weight and reduce your cravings and have an occassional meal off (i.e once a week or fortnight) or you can skip them willynilly and probably not get anywhere far with the weight loss.

    it does depend on what your candy is - some are fat free or low fat but still have calories

    Hi Petal

    I opened some chocs for my sister when she came round and gave her some to take home I ate one and told my husband it wasn't fair that he weighed less than me when I watched him eat 12 chocolates in one go never mind how many he ate when I wasn't there, besides the toast covered in butter, hot cross buns etc etc it's just not fair is it.

    Congratulations on losing the pound though. :D

    I know what you mean about looking forward to spring though -

    I've started walking alot more again now the snows has gone and I cut out my weight watchers puddings for a couple of weeks to try and kick start the weight loss again. Our areas photocopier/printer has been broken for a few days so i've taken numerous walks to the other one the other side of school which is annoying when you don't have much time but the plus side is I've done lots of extra walking at work too so if I don't lose weight this month I'II cry :cry:

    Hope you are all o.k. and are still battling on with the bulge shifting :lol:

    Hi Trying-hard, I asked my hubbie to take all the chocs to his work - although there is an unopened box of After-Eights in the fridge!!!! I've had another bad week, and I weigh tomorrow morning. I'm sure I have put on weight this week. I have done absolutely no exercise - the Wii is covered in dust and the exercise bike has ceased up lol!!!

    Hi Petal

    Come on Petal dust the wii and exercise bike and get your butt into gear so you look forward to your weigh ins instead of dreading them !

    You CAN do it!

    Set yourself a challenge to go on the wii and exercise bike for so many minutes a day. Make yourself a chart so you can mark off when you exercised and for how long. Can't you exercise on the bike while watching tv or listening to music.

    Good luck smile

    Hi Petal

    I agree with Trying Hard, like you, and hundreds of others, I found it hard tp get back on track after Christmas and the new year. I'm just about getting there. I still have loads of crisps around but my other half has put funny little notes on them, which makes me stop and think and this weekend my friend is having a housewarming so taking them there for everyone else to eat.

    I'm trying to but stricter about exercise, would have been so easy to stay in bed this morning but I pushed myself to do some. I think I might take a leaf out of Trying Hards book and stop the WW desserts for a while. They'll be more of a treat when I do have them. I've got my weigh in on Friday and I'm determined to have lost something.

    Unfortunately no one else can do this for us, but at least we have all been there and can support each other on here. I'm sure a few more days and it will all seem easy again smile

    Well done for dusting getting back on the bike, remember it will get easier and think how much better you're going to look by the time the light nights are here.
