Default New Year~new You! Alli Support! January

Hello and happy new year to you all. I wanted to get this thread started so we can start supporting here and get this year off to a great start. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and have a super year!

With that said I will be leaving this thread to you all as I am no longer taking alli. I am going to have to opt for a different form of help as this is just not helping me. I will be counting calories or something similar. I thank you all for the support in the past and wish you all the best in your weight loss journy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Still, thanks for starting us, but I really wish you wouldn't leave!!! Couldn't you just stay here and do your new plan?????? Please??????

When I changed my tracker the other day, I did add all the weight that I gained over the holidays, so it's official. Sure want to start moving that butterfly in the right direction soon!! Especially before I go back to the doctor!!! lol

Hope everyone has recovered from New Year's Eve celebrations!!

Welcome to the newbies!! Sometimes this place is really hopping but right now it's a bit slow. Hopefully we'll all be chatting often again soon.

still, it's ok if you aren't doing Alli, you are doing a program and you can share that info with us to give us some other ideas. I also post on a WW board. I joined there a long time ago when I did WW, and I am still posting although I'm not going to WW. I don't want to lose you!!!

I am restarting on Alli on Monday. I'm cutting back on foods this weekend, and then will start it again. I plan to start going to the Y again and get more exercise in this year.

I'm thinking about trying Alli since I am doing a low cal "diet." I will be starting Deliciously Yours on Friday, and have been eating well since January 1st. I'm just nervous that with starting a new "life change" and starting Alli together will do crazy things to my system.

What do you all think being that you are using Alli? Should I wait a little while for my body to adjust to my life style first? If so, how long?

Thanks!

Hello all. I'm new to Alli (just took my first pill with dinner last night) but not new to eating low fat. I've lost 80 lbs. since March 2006 but fell off the wagon since October and gained back 15 lbs. Off and running again on January 1st and decided that Alli is the boost I needed. 48 lbs to my goal weight. So happy to have found this forum.

Thanks all.

Alli is a great tool. just watch the fat intake and dont go over the recommended amount of fat you are to eat..I never had t.e."s (terrible effects) using Alli. It sure made me think twice about eating cookies and ice cream and pizza (my weakness) I was never jittery and it didnt affect my blood pressure either. As long as you go low fat before you start Alli
things should be ok.

Tammy I am glad you are going back to the y. I am back on Alli too. it keeps me away from my "friendly" enemies !

AS for me i am doing great !! walking every day with my dog and signed up for some school classes in office programs. Still need to work on the night time eating , but feel really positive about the upcoming year !!

Welcome bionic I have been on alli since aug. and have had no problems with it. I have found that Alli runs about the same everywhere. what is different are the amounts in the bottle. get the starter pak first, the info inside is great. amazon.com has good prices but again, it is a 2 pk with more so it does cost more, but you save in the long run. Try target and walmart also. P.s. i am 55 and have had no problems. my dr. gave me a RX for orlistat ( stronger than Alli ) but insurance wont cover it and I cant afford 170.00 a month. oh well..

My doctor gave me the okay to try alli (since I'm younger than 18), and I started today.
I figured since I eat a very low-fat diet now that it can help me a lot!
