tara - if you have little self control - i will tell you honestly do not try it. if you surpass the fat proportion significantly, it will be nothing short of horrible for you. you WILL get gas AND have anal leakage.

BUT - if you seriously want to try this, you have to have some self control. i am the kind of person who used to not think twice about eating a donut for breakfast with my coffee. now, i wouldnt dream of touching a donut for breakfast because i dont want to leak grease at work.

theres nothing else i can really tell you... if you've read everything i wrote then that's about all the convincing i can do...

    Wow, Maura, you are looking awesome! I may have to look into trying this as I've gained 6 pounds since getting back from Mandy's wedding. My sweet tooth may have to suffer for a while.

        I went to get it at Target last night and I read the DO NOT TAKE IF category...well I can't take Alli cause I have no gallbladder. Why my doctor didn't tell me this, I have no idea. I am so bummed.

          i noticed some not so overweight people wanting to take this... Its only for overweight people. It may not be safe for those who arent and just need to lose a few pounds.

            I was thinking the same thing

            i wonder why you can't take it if you dont have a gallbladder? I had mine taken out almost 9yrs ago. I'm going to call my Dr. and see what she says.

              K let me know what they say. I was going to call my doc too. I think it has something to do with the fat secretion.

              just want to let you all know i banned that guy above - it was spamming.

              yari, id definitely call your doc and find out why you shouldnt take it without a gallbladder. im really curious. i was reading this: myalli.com ? frequently asked questions

              and it doesnt say you CANT take alli if you have your gallbladder removed, it just says you should talk to your doctor first.

              and re: barefootbride's comment above -- i just want to say that i cannot speak for others, but although i don't look overweight in my photos, i am more than 10 pounds overweight for my height and build according to my general physician. she is the one who recommended it to me in the first place, so i by no means advocate people who don't need to lose weight using it. i would like to point out that "overweight" is not the same as "obese." you don't have to be "fat" to be overweight.

                this is personal, so don't respond if you don't want to, but for your height, were you over the weight/height ratio scale on the Alli box?

                (yes I bought it this afternoon. decided i need some fear to keep me on track)

                  Ok, I talked to the doc today. She said that she didn't recommend that I take it. It can cause me to have diaraha (sp?) and a upset stomach. She said I could try it if i wanted. I neglected to tell her I had already taken it for 5 days. To tell you the truth I have been taking it and doing WW. haven't had any treatment effect. But I do have to go to the bathroom after every meal. And I have lost 5lbs. So I think I'm going to stay on it.
