It has been 60 days since adding alli® weight loss aid to my weight loss routine. I was skeptical if it would be enough time to notice any changes. Despite making healthier choices and increasing activity, the scales were not moving. That’s where adding alli® weight loss aid came into the plan. It is the only FDA-approved over-the-counter weight loss aid on the market. It works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body*.

Making lifelong changes is important. I want to be healthier. I want to live a long life. But, I want to see results from the hard work I've been putting in, too.

Reducing my calorie and fat intake adding workouts helped to get me started. But, I fall into the obese category which makes me a candidate to take alli weight loss aid as well.

Since the scale can be discouraging, I've been tracking all my measurements (download this free tracker).

At first, it was embarrassing. Even alone in the bathroom, I felt funny measuring myself. It's so easy to step on a scale. But, wrapping that measuring tape around body parts you know should not be that big is torture.

As the weeks went by, it got so much easier. Especially when the numbers were going down. My weight, not so much, but I'm losing inches.

I've also changed my weight goal to a size goal. It’s funny how something little can have such a big impact on the outlook. Losing weight is hard work. Why make it more stressful?

Then it happened! After using alli® weight loss aid, the scale started moving again. Not a lot, but a little one week. A tiny more the next week. Counting my calories and working outplayed the biggest role in my success. But, now I'm moving closer to the goal I set prior to taking alli® weight loss aid.

I’m excited to say that I went from 241.6 pounds to 235.6. That’s six pounds! Now that was on August 31th and I’ve lost nothing since. This is where my measurements come in!

My waist was 42 inches, hips 48.75, and my bust was 44 inches. Currently, my waist is 40.75, hips are 46.5, and my girls are the same. That’s 1.25 inches gone from my waist and 2.25 from my hips!

This has put me comfortably in a size smaller than I was when I started. These results are not typical. I was at the gym five days a week. Also, by following alli® weight loss aid’s meal guidelines, I eliminated my afternoon snack which also cut out some calories.

I’m so close to the 25-pound mark**! My initial goal was 85 pounds in 365 days. I knew it would be a challenge. I don’t see myself losing 61 pounds in the next 200 some odd days I have left. It’s taken 148 days to get this far. But, I’m not discouraged! Making and sticking to healthy lifestyle changes is hard. Having the right tools to help makes all the difference.
