I’ve never taken it but I’ve heard the side effects are terrible and not worth it for the little extra  weight you lose.

To me it seems like a scare tactic to eat right. (i.e. eat poorly and you’ll regret it)

When I did Weight Watchers, a lot of people talked about Alli, but weight watchers really seemed to work best. You want to lose weight in a way you can maintain (rather than crash diet then gain it back).

Focusing on a program that encourages healthy sustainable eating  habits is better for your body and your mind.

It’d be great if there was a “miracle pill” but like most things, there’s no “miracle” just hard work and dedication.

My Mom took it and it worked but she had to stay near a bathroom constantly. haha

maybe that was TMI.

 

Ive been doing pilates 2 days a week (best exercise ever!) and i do 30-60 minutes of cardio (either eliptical or treadmill-walking-im not a runner) 2 days a week and i can really notice a difference and it isnt too demanding. ive also notice that with working out just a little bit more it really makes me think twice about what i put in my mouth. i rarely turn down the sweets but after a good workout its much easier to decide against it …the FH is no help in that aspect of it.

you’ve got time. i would really suggest a good workout plan – it doesnt have to be anything crazy- and just cutting or portion size and drink lots of water.

also i would suggest a multivitamin if only for gorgeous locks 🙂

Good Luck!

@mrsBtoBee: Do you think most of your results are actually from the gym and eating so much healthier? Alli isn’t supposed to take a ton more calories, right? Maybe go off it for a couple weeks, see what happens, and then go back on if you think it was in fact helping?

i would suggest a supplement if anything, like quicktrim or hydroxycut…it will give you more of a boost in exercising and help with seeing results, it not a weightloss supplement like alli so you shouldnt feel feel sick, i would recommend eating something before you take it though, even with a multi vitamin i notice nausea if i dont eat anything.

@mrsBtoBee: Changing your eating habits and going to the gym is what is showing you results, taking the pill may help with a few lbs, but the majority of the loss is from doing the right things.

Plus, who knows what the long term effects of taking a drug that inhibits fat uptake does to your body.
