      Thats normal to feel like that but i feel that fear is good in a way as once uve reached ur goals you'll be more mindful about your life style,

      My goal was 8stones and now just a stone to go i must admit i fear aswel but if i be honest it does help me choose to eat healthier and continue exercise,

      Only being underactive thyroid is bugging me

    Hi Sonia,

    In my orlistat research I did read something about orlistat also being used to maintain weight loss in patients with other conditions and risk factors.

    Are you using orlistat under the supervision of a physician? If not, I highly recommend it because of your interactive thyroid condition. A doctor will be able to monitor your progress in both areas more effectively and can advise you when the time comes if you should stop orlistat, go down to a maintenance dosing, or possibly switch to something else for maintaining your weight loss.

    Hope that helps!
