Name changed for this, have tried a million and one ways to loose weight and im desperate, need to loose weight for my health, physical and mental. So here goes.

Just not to sure what im doing, weighed myself this morning 18stone 3lbs, what a shocker, terrible. I was 16 stone before i had my dd. Not going to beat myself up anymore just want to try and be positive.

If anyone else is using xenical or alli maybe we can support each other, share some meal plans etc.

breakfast........ 2 weetabix and skimmed milk

No, no fat in wine. Plenty of colories though but I know you are just cutting out fat whilst on Xenical.

sign up free at food focus and there is a tool there for you to input your details.

there is also a page to input your daily intake and tell you how many calories you have consumed.

loads here have found it very useful
