Why not?

After months of deliberation, I have decided to try Orlistat. Was going to do it the Boots way but having to pay £125.00 for the pleasure of a three month course seemed at little wrong, seeing as I could try it on the NHS.

So went to the GP, 12 days ago, had some blood tests to rule out my inability to lose weight due to either diabetes or thyroid. Anyhow went to GP this morning blood was fine so has given me 1 months of orlistat to try.

Took my first blue at lunch, no funny effects as yet!!

Im hoping this will work for me as after 4/5 months of going it alone with not much weight loss I was starting to feel very peeved!!!

Anyhow, lets see how I get on.

Look forward to chatting to you all, you seem so nice.

Take Care x

    thanks Dawn, nice to know theres others in the same boat!!!

    I do hope this helps me though, 3 years ago I lost 40lbs with Weight Watchers then became pregnant so the 6 months of hard work went up the spout, even though I was given a beautiful baby in return!!!

    This time round seems so much harder though.
