About two weeks ago I had an appointment with a dietician. He weighed me and evaluated my need and want to lose weight. He asked me a crucial question: Are you doing this for yourself? And without hesitation I answered YES. That was not a lie, I really am doing this for myself. I guess that is already one step in the right direction. I had tears in my eyes. It was a reflection of my desperation. So we both agreed that I would take xenical and combine it with a low fat diet. He did not stress about the need to do some exercise. He said try to walk 30 mins per day. That did not sound too bad, I thought.

The week after that I went back for an appointment and picked up my first batch of Xenicak and Chromium picolitane. I could not wait to go home and start the diet. For the first week I had no side effects at all. But I did not move much so I only lost 800 grams. I thought, If I cut out 800 grams of meat, it's actually quite a lot.

So here I am on my second week, I am planning to move more and decrease my portions. The low fat diet is not difficult at all, if you just watch what you eat. Still no side effects. We shall what the scale says this friday at my next appointment.

I dream of the day I will be cruising the beach in a bikini.
That day shall come.

    Thanks for the encouragement ! I went back for my second weigh in: lost 800 g again. My appointment was one day early so it would have been 1 kg lost this week. I am so happy. Slowly but surely losing. emoticon
