LadyCallie - If you decide to go on Alli you are going to be taking a huge step to getting back control of your eating habits and your weight. That alone is a huge plus!
I have lost 30 lbs since June and have not felt this good in a couple years!
Alli does have some TE's (treatment effects) with it, as I am sure you have read.
If you go over your fat allowance be prepared for it.
Even with being on a low fat diet your stool will be a bit softer then normal. I thought it was only me, but I have talked to several people who have the same now. But it is nothing like the horror stories that you read about.
You have to have a certain amount of fat in your diet, we all do, even if not dieting, staying with the healthy fats is always the preferred method.
How much you lose is entirely up to your body and how much you exercise and cut back on calories. There are recommendations all over the net of how much is healthy to lose, I would recommend just not going crazy and cutting calories down to the triple digits.
Be reasonable, be responsible and remember that Alli should not be taken unless your serious about cutting down on your fat intake and exercising.
Too many people think that it is ok to continue with their bad eating habits and the Alli will just make it miraculously disappear. That is not going to happen.
Also remember, you will still plateau on occasion, even using Alli. Don't give up though that is just your body being stubborn!
Hope this helps in your decision!
You can say no to food. It is always going to go to waste in one way or another. The choice is, will it go to your waist, or will it go to waste. In both cases waste is the end product...
