I am 28 years old and am the mother of three kids. I checked the BMI scale on the alli website and I am considered Obese. Its sad that I let myself get this far in my weight but when I was pregnant it just got out of hand. Before becoming pregnant with my first child I was around 180 pounds, i had a weight problem and after I was pregnant it had ballooned up to around 200 pounds. By the time I had my third and last child I was 300 pounds. When I started trying to diet I didnt know what to do, I was eating way too few calories and I was hungry all the time. I got Lipozene and I had only lost like 3 pounds with 60 Capsules. So that didnt work as well as I thought it would so I got Alli, its more expensive but comes with 90 pills and they are small so easier to swallow. Upon opening the box it comes with various books, like a menue (convenient) and a daily journal to write down all of what you are eating. I decided to get boxed dinners because its easiest to figure out how many calories are in a serving if its just one simple serving. I have been on alli for 3 weeks and have lost 10 pounds. Started at 203 and am now 293. Since im eating healthy and checking fat grams I dont have too many greacy movements like the horror stories claim. I dont have stomach problems at all and no side effects. I have only experienced the greacy movements when I make bad choices, like take a bite of my bf's burger that he cooked in butter and eat a half of a pizza instead of my usual salad and boxed dinner.\n\nI will continue to use alli, I dont care if its a little more expensive then the other pills, if it works im happy.
This product seems to be working for me. You must follow directions and food eating plan exactly. If you eat too much fat you may have Uncontrollable bowel movements, so stay away from too much fat. Overall, seems to do what it claims.
