Hello! I'm really worried because i started my first month of the pills, and all was going good, in 3 weeks i lost about 7 pounds...

but then christmas came!!

and i think now i will have probably only lost about 4 pounds, and i know this isn't good enough for a months work sad

will the doctor give me the tablets for another month or is the weight loss not enough? i really have been eating better, it was just christmas.

thanks smile

    from reading on here it all depends on the Dr. I didn't think mine would give me any more on my last visit, initially because it was a Dr I had not seen before for these tablets and secondly I don't have that much more to lose. But she did and said that they would seriously review next time round.

    Hopefully you will have an understanding Dr and I personally think any weight loss on these, where there hasn't been previously on other diets, you should get them for at least 6mths to get the hang of a new life style before they even consider taking people off them.

    When is your appt? can you make sure that you stick to the diet from now to then to boost the loss, also bear in mind body shape can you say that you have noticed that changing as sometimes you don't lose weight but you loss fat so mass from the body.

    Thanks a lot for this smile

    appointment is tomorrow morning!! I haven't been overeating until Christmas when it just got the better of me. My doctor seemed quite nice and I've told him nothing else was working and I can tell these are, I just hope he understands. Normally they don't take you off after a month do they, cause that's a bit unfair surely?

    Thanks a lot.

    I hadn't lost much on my official weigh-in's the last two times, but I was able to tell my doctor that inches had gone, so he had no problem prescribing more and making a note on my record to that effect as well.

    I'm sure they'll take christmas into account as well. Everyone faces the same problem whether they are on a diet or not, we're all human!

    Hope it all goes well tomorrow.

    Oh really, where did you lose inches? smile

    Thanks so much for this! I'm only 18 and have struggled with weight for a while so it's pretty scary, but I have lost an inch or so around my tummy so ill tell him that.

    From what I've read on here you have to lose 5% of your weight in three months, so I hope he gives me a chance to do that!!

    Well Done Sophie

    With it being Christmas you have done well

    Keep it up then the pounds and inches will continue to come off you. I wish I'd measured parts of my body when I started but I didn't want to know what they were but it would be interesting to see how many inches I've lost as it is a good insentive.

    Keep ip up! :D
