alright so for all you wussies out there, i played guinea pig and purposely took an alli pill and ate over the 15 grams of fat at dinner tonight to see what would happen to me. i knew i was staying home and doing nothing, so it was not like i had anywhere to be. i DID experience "treatment effects" -- however, it was SERIOUSLY no big deal... it was like a little gas, and right before i had it i could feel it was slightly different than normal so i went to the bathroom and (sorry TMI) some grease dripped out. THAT'S IT. nothing else happened to me. no stomach cramps at all, no shitting myself. it literally just looked like olive oil droplets about the size of half a dime in the toilet.

not that i would do this again, because now when i fart im afraid it will be greasy so i go in the bathroom when i feel some gas coming on for tonight. but on a normal basis when i know im staying within the parameters, i never worry and never experienced any problems whatsoever. and these treatment effects i'm having tonight, let me reiterate, are seriously no big deal. no pain, no cramping, no explosive shits, just a little grease dripping.

and tami -
if you want more info for how alli works, i suggest you go to alli ? weight loss program for healthy weight loss. it does not suppress your appetite - it controls how much fat you absorb in your diet. it can also cause a vitamin deficiency which is why you need to take a vitamin everyday before bed at nighttime. its really important to do it at night because overnight while you sleep the vitamins can be properly absorbed into your system because you wont have any alli in your system for the next 8-10 hours after you take the vitamin.

      OMG Ladies thanks for this thread. I have been bouncing up and down with the weight loss and with less than 100 days to go, I better get on my job. I am going to pick up Alli tomorrow and will be starting Monday morning. I will keep you guys posted on the TE and weight loss. I also wanted to do the SHD, so maybe I will start the Alli after I get a WL boost with the SHD. My second dress fitting is Aug 5 and right now the dress can bearly and I mean bearly zip.. I need about 15lbs off and I'll be ready to go..

        Maura... Thanks for your detailed story...lol! I think I've convinced to do it too now! Tim works for GSK (GlaxoSmithKline the maker of the drug) so he can get it for me with his discount. And he has begging me to try it and I've hesitant because I didn't know anyone who's been on it. So hearing your experience Maura I think it was just what I needed. So thank you so much! I think I may try to get my hands on some this week sometime.

          Maura you are too funny! I can't believe you ate more than 15g on the pill. LOL! Thankfully, it wasn't too bad.

            Haha! I was thinking of doing the same thing you did Maura! I probably still will just to see how my body reacts to more than 15 grams of fat... I'll have to wait until I'm home alone though!
            I knew he was the man I would marry as soon as we met...

              actually this is kinda funny.... the whole reason why i tried this out for you guys was because yesterday when i went to my dress fitting, my seamstress was telling me how another bride of hers started alli the same week in february that she ordered her dress, and the girl's wedding was last weekend. her final alterations were about 3 weeks ago -- she ordered the dress in a size 16 and when it came time for her alterations, she had to have her dress taken in two whole sizes and a smidge more in a few places like the underarms. my seamstress liz was telling me that the girl told her that the couple times she ate over the 15 g of fat in a meal with the pill in her system, she got "sick" and that was enough to keep her from doing it again -well liz wanted to know what she meant by "sick" and she told her she dripped so much grease it was like a faucet! LOL so i thought why not just eat a couple grams over and see what it does. worst case scenario i spend a few hours dripping grease from my butt, and i end up like this girl who got her dress taken in 2 sizes LOL

                ROFL!! That's funny Maura, I can't believe you played guinea pig!

                That's a great story about the girl with the wedding dress, I wish I had tried it before my wedding, but I was so scared! I'll be starting in about 2 weeks

                  lol.

                  You are too funny, Maura!! AND, you rock for doing a test study for us, lol.

                  I think I am going to try it -- after I go to Waffle House for a triple order of hashbrowns scattered smothered and covered and then make fettucine alfredo for dinner tonight.

                  Then I'll go buy some fruits and veggies and get down to business!!
