Quoting wendybird:" i hear ya, I got all into Alli a few years back when it first came out...I guess for me, I just put ... [snip!] ... March 09 and by July 10 I got down to 133. I've since gained weight back :? I'm hovering between 145-150 right now....I'm 5'4"


I was taking Alli, but it's really expensive IMO and I wasn't consuming enough fat to take it. I had some results with it, but like you, they weren't the results I hoped for, at least not for the money...

How did you feel at 133lbs? I'm 5'3" and I've been that small so I don't really know what to aim for. That's why I made my first goal 150lbs.

Honestly for my frame the low 130's were about as low as I felt comfortable going. I liked how my body looked, but I had a lot of family tell me I looked emaciated :roll: also I totally lost my boobs so that was a bummer :x



I slowly put on a few lbs and I felt really happy in the 137-142 range...I just need to wittle off a few lbs. right now my clothes are a tad too snug for my tastes. I'll post a few pics to share..brb.

Well you looked GREAT at 140lbs too and as long as you're happy that's what counts. You've still done amazing.

I'm trying to lose 60-65lbs before my birthday in November and I've lost 11lbs so far. I'm dead serious about losing weight, so I'm with you on this.

It's soooo hard being on a diet and working at Dunkin Donuts. I started my diet and got hired there the next day. lmao but I've managed to not eat a single donuts... :)

Tonight's update:

Did pretty well today. Had SmartOnes lasagna for lunch (shared with my DD LOL), had an apple and low fat string cheese for snack, then had about 1/2 cup baked mac n cheese for dinner :oops: Really tried to avoid it, but my mom made and it and I just caved. Pretty disappointed in myself, but tomorrow is a NEW day!
