My sister has try Xenical, she has sought the doctor's advice and so far, they just tell her to keep on trying. To give you an idea of how hard it is for her to lose weight, she had her teeth removed and was fitted with dentures 2.5yrs ago. (needed to be done for transplant reasons....long story) But basically, she had no teeth for 2 weeks and then couldn't really eat anything for awhile while her mouth got used to the dentures. For 4weeks, she had clear soups, juices, shakes, soft eggs, and oatmeal. She didn't lose a single lb!!!
As for the gym, she works as hard as possible can being hooked up at oxygen and line! She can't do crunches, pushups or heavy training, sheez, she can't even bend down to get her own shoes on
. She does treadmill, bike, lite weights and swims. And she has a personal trainer with her to help motivate her and keep her going. She hopes that maybe if they push a little harder this time she will lose some more.
I am going to get at her next week to keep a diary of what she is eating and to go on a strict phase 1 again. I am sure if she is really tight on her diet and we tweek her system again, she will start losing. I will post her daily food intake next week and we will see if we can all find something to help with.
thank you so much for all your help.
