AbiNormal: Alli Side Effects In Layman's Terms


Oh. My. God. This is printed as a warning. On the package:

You may feel an urgent need to go to the bathroom. Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, it's probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work.

They're telling you, right out, that you will not just stripe your undies occasionally, but will in fact shiat through your clothing. In public.

And people do this to themselves on purpose??

unfarkingbelievable: Wow, sorry to hear about your foot travails; I'm hoping you are getting those surgically corrected or through rehab, or combo? I just hope you can get a lot of mobility back!


Thanks! Been in physical therapy since June and things are looking up. I can walk without pain now and recently stopped wearing the stretching boot thingy to bed, but still require the air-cast immobilizing thing throughout the day. I'll be back to my old self in a couple months. Or was your post sarcastic?

doczoidberg: Who cares?
If it works, it works.

...Then again, it's probably prescription only, and therefore a pain in the ass to get.


Human medical advice from Zoidberg. Seems legit.

AND she shiat her cloth car seats twice. Her gay-friend-hairdresser-sidepiece would sit and complain about the "treatment effects" in HIS life. O_O


/I went out with them once. Ended in them SNORTING ambien and me sneaking the fark out and never going back. I kept asking them why not just TAKE the ambien. Side effects of snorting it (wtf erratic behavior) combind with treatment affects of Alli (figure it out) = me realizing club going was NOT the way I was going to meet people/have fun.

No, not sarcastic. Even though I love so snark on Fark, when I read about people going through medical issues, I feel intense empathy. That said, I am very glad to hear you are indeed on the mend. And I hope you can run, jump and frolic to your heart's content soon. Cheers!

gambitsgirl: unfarkingbelievable: gambitsgirl: Sybarite: gambitsgirl: I makes you poop orange liquid uncontrollably and without warning. It was never a good idea. I had a friend stay very thin on it but she crapped herself regularly. She said it was worth it to be a size 2. I'm pretty sure the side affect would be frowned upon by most mates during sexy time. That's a BIG oops.


I wonder what would happen if you popped a couple of Alli and then ate a whole bag of Olestra chips.

WMD?
Full system cleanse?
Sheets you just throw away instead of actually trying to clean them?

GG, you are totally cracking me up! I'm hysterical laughing over here.

And I'm totally looking at option 2 as I don't want to spend the time doing the Lemonaide body cleanse. I could take Alli and eat Wow!!! chips for a week! I need to go see if I have a tent as I don't intend living inside that week. And possibly the week after also.

/// O_O


Would covering it all in disposable Saran wrap help? :)

Your friend has issues.

Indeed


Size 2 is way too skeletal for me. Between 6 - 16 works for me, depending on the woman's height, bone structure, personality and whatever else I feel like factoring in. And people I like and especially who also like me are always more attractive then those I can't stand.

One of my biggest regrets is being too crazy for Sarah in Chicago. I've got no idea what her dress size or measurements were was but she looked to be about 50 or so pounds overweight: firstly she really was big-boned (her wrists & ankles were almost twice the size of mine), she was naturally mesomorphic enough to make a good football player (and could have snapped me like pencil), and her adipose tissue was very well arranged -- just a larger version of the "hourglass figure." Her waist nipped in at the sides, her belly was just a little soft, and her boobs, butt and thighs were in proportion to her waist. She was kinda fat, she could have lost a few pounds and it wouldn't hurt her any, but she was also fun-loving, friendly and horny as all get-out. You might have to be a little careful in how you dress with a build like that, some things really are cut to flatter an anorect and make everybody else look funny, but stark naked this gal turned me ON. She was a whole lotta woman.

And she didn't poop herself the whole weekend I was there.

Ambien + Alli. Hmmm... so you don't remember where you left your random piles of oily shiat-goo?

Chubby but sane is better than skinny but oily-bat-shiat-running-down-your-legs farking nuts, I'm thinking.

As it will still flow to the heaviest indented part of the bed I would think that would just raise the splatter level numbers far greater than good sheets (poor quality sheets don't soak as much up).

I think the "wait for him to fall asleep and slip into Depends" method would ultimately be least embarrassing. :-/

People. Want to lose weight? Here's the secret:

1. Weigh Yourself every morning.
2. Write down everything you eat.
3. Blog those two numbers, make it a facebook status, email it to somebody whop knows your goals and keeps you accountable, whatever works.
4. Exercise, but don't expect it to make any difference in how much weight you lose. It will however give you time to reflect on your goals and something to do other than eating too much crap.

/Did this for 6 months and lost 50 pounds, have kept it off for two years.
/no comas, no pools of oil.

Even more: Expect exercise to increase your weight, sometimes dramatically, weight lifting even more so. Take a week off every so often and it'll drop again. Your body retains more water, uses the food it gets more efficiently, and craves more calories, making it difficult to outright drop weight. If that number bothers you, then for god's sake get some freaking calipers and measure your body fat %, don't moan about that one meaningless weight number like it's the end all and be all of how good you look.

what about Dexedrine? is that still good for weight loss?

Burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight. It's simple math. You either eat less, or exercise more.

/It's working for me.
//Running 20km a week gives me ample room for beer and hot wings.

AND FOR GOODNESS SAKES GET UP AND EXERCISE!!!

Its not that hard people....

It is if you have bad joint inflammation and neuropathic pain.

Aquatic exercise is great for those with joint and mobility issues. Unless you are in a coma, there is always something you can do.
Sorry, the personal swimming pools are being renovated.


So eat less, fatty.
