    It's been a slow week as far as weight loss...it's "that time of the month" so I'm thinking that's part of the reason why. Still trying to stick to it though.

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    How is everyone doing? We just got back from vacation and I did pretty well. Had a couple of bad meals but I didn't take a pill so no side effects. My husband didn't gain anything, he stayed the same weight. We are both back on the wagon again. My weight loss is slow too, but I can tell I am losing some inches my pants feel better. Hope everyone is doing well. Ann

    I don't think I have lost an ounce. I have not been eating very heavy so no side effects. I must remind myself that I need to be more patient.

    Thats awesome!! Congrats! How is everyone else doing on this? How much have you lost and how long did it take?
    I just started these Monday. So far so good, no TE's! But I have been very good with staying under the fat grams!

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    It's great to hear that many are having success with Alli. It will take me 6 months to lose 20 pounds! Boy, weight really comes off slow when your hormones or lack of get in the way. I know it would come off faster too if I excercised more, but I really HATE exercise. I do walk but not fast enough or long enough. I will work on that. Everyone keep up the good work. Ann

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    I dont know if its from the alli or medifast, i had started medifast before alli. I would like to add one thing about alli, I do not get loose stools, but i go at least 3-4 times a day which is very unusual for me. The only bad part is the gas, it is terrible and it may just slip out, all i try to do is run from it and hide so know one knows its me Good luck to everyone

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    I have gas problems too, but it really is bad with certain vegs I eat. My weight loss is very slow. I am getting pretty discouraged. I haven't cheated except for maybe 2 meals in the last 5 weeks. I know I am old and weight comes off slower, but this is ridiculous. I will buy one more month of Alli and if I don't see some improvement I will continue to diet but not spend the money for Alli. I talked with a man my age last week and he gave up bread for 1 week and lost 6 pounds. It will take me till Jan. to lose 6 pounds the rate I am going. Ann

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    Are there limits to alli? I mean as far as how much you want to lose? Should you only take it if you want to lose more than 10 pounds? What if I only want to lose 5? Does anyone know?

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    i started about 4-5 weeks ago and have only lost about 7 lbs. i get discouraged because my gas is SOOOOOOOO bad. it's beyond embarassing! so due to the bad gas, i am not taking the alli consistently. i try to be gas free for the weekends!

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    hi, this is my first post, but thought i would let you know my experiences with xenical. i was 7 stone (100+ lbs) overweight. i have lost 5 and a half stone - 80lbs -since january by eating lower fat, counting calories,taking my pill and exercising a bit more.i have never lost weight so easily. i have had no side effects so far but admit i miss a pill if im going to overindulge.
    2 problems i now have. one due to my quick weight loss i have now got gallstones. so i cant indulge in my favourite fatty treats any longer(couple biscuits and packets of crisps are ok now and then). secondly due to my low fat diet plus the xenical blocking another approx 30% i have very dry skin. i eat a lot of oily fish and take omega 3 capsules but it hasnt really helped. im afraid my face in particular has really suffered.
    still i still feel positive about xenical. its really helped keep me motivated. over here we dont have alli and i know drs wont prescribe xenical unless you have a bmi higher than 30.

    Re: anyone tried Alli??

    I have only lost 5 pounds since I started Alli. I have no gas or other problems. I stay constipated so Alli helps me stay regular. I also avoid most fatty foods. Once a week I may have a fast food meal. Alli does remind you that you can't eat a lot of fat or you get the side effects. I have avoided them so far.
