I started on this pill 48 hours ago and have gained one pound. I live in Canada but was born in Manchester. I am a size 24. How many pounds is a stone? I am happy to meet you.

    14lbs is a stone. You will get bloated in the first week or so but stick with it and the weight will come off how much do you have to lose x

    Hi. Thank you for responding. I weigh 226 pounds. My waist is the same as my hips. I take a lot of insulin for my diabetes, and I take several essential pills for a brain disease. They make me hungry all the time. My various specialists say there is not much they can do, but I am really hoping this drug will melt away the belly fat.

    'Best regards

    I have been on ORLISTAT for over a week. I weighted myself this morning and i have put on 3 lbs!

    I now weigh 15stone.

    My doctor has given me 6 weeks to loose 5% of my body weight. 10.5 lbs.

    I'm so disappointed.

    Don't be disheartened stick to it.

    Maybe u just storing water weight at main are u due a menstrol cycle

    Cause u gain 3/6 lb before that..

    Just try right everything down like keep a food diary to see if u

    Can adjust anything... but don't give up,,

    Are u excersizing??

    A 30 main walk a day at a steady pace is the key

    Don't give up girl,,, u can do it ....

    Good luck
