I started alli yesterday. My diet is going fine. However, I am at a weight that I have not been able to get below from the day I first gained above it. I had used Xenical in the past with good success and few side effects, so I decided to add alli to my diet to see if I can make it this time. I eat low-fat and with the alli/xenical it helped me lose extra fat. I was unable to afford to keep it going last time, but I'm trying this for the next forty days.
I've tried alli in the past but I didnt see any extra weight being lost, I ate a low fat diet like they suggest but I started getting stomach cramps when I was trying to sleep which I never had before or after stopping, so I didnt like it at all. I find a low calorie diet and exercise works best for me, but what works for one may not for another so I hope it works better for you. Good luck. Renee

So far it's 11 pounds off since starting alli. No side effects. One day I knew I was going over my fat grams and simply didn't take the pill. It's easy to control.
I was on low fat anyway, so I think this works for me. I'd like to take personal credit for my own weightloss and not hand it over to a diet pill that I'm using short term. alli may have helped me get over the hump, and maybe it's just a mental thing with me. But I am the one making the right food choices and walking my life away with my boxer in my neighborhood and on the treadmill at the gym.
I'm enjoying fitting into chairs with armrests. I am shocked by my shadow on the sidewalk because my behind isn't sticking out. I see a slimmer face and baggy pants that are falling down.
Rather than moan the process, I'm trying to enjoy the journey. I'm not perfect in this, but I'm considerably better and am still losing.
The funny thing is, when I weighed 468 pounds I was so addicted to food that I was afraid to be without it. Now, I have difficulty finishing my measured meals. Who is this woman?
