So I went to the doctor to find out I weight the exact same amount as I did September 2015. A year and a half of watching what I eat, and working out at the gymn and then at home....and all it really did was keep me from getting bigger?! Sigh...
I have been to the NHS counterweight program during this time so I said to my doctor I need something else. His answer is to try these tablets for 3 months to see if I lose 5% of my body weight. If not then I guess it will have to be something more drastic (weight loss surger?!).
So I currently lift weights 3 x per week, and do cardio 3 x per week (been doing that since last october....), and I have been limiting wheat and sugar (by this I mean less than once per week). I seem to be extremely sensitive to carbs/sugar so I just have to stay away from them if I have any hope of losing weight.
My doctor who prescribed these didn't even give me eye contact at the appoitnment never mind explain what I was to do. Thank god for Google... So from what I read I need to make sure I have a low fat diet (mine generally has been anyway) and expect to poop myself otherwise.
Today is day two of the tablets. Yesterday I felt a little bit burpy (that horrible medicine burp) afterwards, and maybe a bit bloated. Otherwise no effects.
I am starting this at 5' 4'' and 108.3 kg (Pretty much bang on 17 stone), my trousers are a tight 18 or comfortable 20 uk. And since this is where I hold my weight (butt/lower tummy) then I will use that as a measurement of success vs dress size.
What was your success like in months 1-3 of orilstat? Did you lose weight, are you happy with them? Did you have to move on to something else?
