Well done for losing those 7 kg with a sensible approach! You are a **star**. You don't mention how much weight you need to lose, but if you are contemplating the use of Xenical I surmise that you would like to lose quite a lot? Am I correct? This phenomenon of reaching a plateau after initially losing weight nicely, is one of the most frustrating aspects of slimming. I would recommend that you first discuss your problem with a dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). If she/he also thinks that Xenical would improve your weightloss you can then ask your dr to prescribe it for you. But I would first like a dietitian to assess your situation. One method of stimulating your metabolism and weightloss is to start doing exercise (if possible). 30 min a day of brisk walking, cycling, skipping or some other form of aerobic exercise is ideal.
