If I don't laugh at myself then I will just cry, so you all can laugh at me too :)
Last week I surpassed a mark on the scale that is 100% unacceptable. I decided immediate action MUST be taken. I do not have time to go the gym anymore as my 4am hour is now spent failing classes. So I decided to try Alli. I had heard the stories about the horrible ass leaking that occurs, but figured it was worth a shot if it worked. I started taking it and had no immediate side effects. For a day or so I even played around and purposefully ate fatty things just to see what would happen, nothing. But I did lose 5lbs last week. So I was impressed and decided to stick with it.
Saturday morning dad called and asked me to go to the pound with him to look for a dog for mom. After being mauled by a giant dog, we decided to abandon the pound and get food. Dad wanted Taco Bell, my gut told me it was a horrendous idea, but I didn't want to tell him about the pills. So I said "Sure!" I didn't think anything too horrible would happen. I don't even remember what I ordered, but it was only about 13 grams of fat (the program says 30 g per day, so I assumed I was good, esp since breakfast had 0 fat). About two hours later I was home sitting on the couch reading while my roommate was playing on her laptop. I had awful gas and was just silently farting away. Then I got that OMG I HAVE TO SHIT RIGHTNOW feeling and ran to the bathroom. I had shit my pants and DIDN"T EVEN KNOW IT!! It was like canola oil was pouring out of my ass. I couldn't stop it. I sat on the toilet for about 20 min spewing putrid oil. I can't even describe the smell, it was awful, just awful. So I think I am finally done and I clean up and go back to the couch. then I feel it... My ass is leaking! Wtf!? I get up and run to the bathroom again. At this point a friend from work starts texting me about something random. And I'm like "MY ASS IS LEAKING OIL!" Which, she apparently found SOOO amusing she just HAD to share it with the people she was with. I was on my period and wearing a pad, but it wasn't long enough to cover my oil soaked bum. So I put on two pads like a diaper and after about two hours the leaking stopped.
Lesson learned: NEVER eat Taco Bell AGAIN!!!!
I am still taking the pills. I have not had anymore issues since that day. I am being very careful with what I eat. I learned my lesson with teasing the Alli gods and I will follow on the straight and narrow from here on out.
***Yes i KNOW the pill alone will not make me lose all of the weight that I want to lose. I am eating healthy and exercising at home. I just decided to try it to see if it worked or not***
