Hello this blog entry is a little embarrassing as it is all about my mishap when using the diet tablet Alli. Let me first say that this tablet really works and it definitely helped me to lose weight while I was using it.The only downside to this product is that it is very very expensive. That and when you are not used to the effect that it has on your body which you won't be In the early days of taking this tablet there is a real and present danger that it can cause you to inadvertently loose control of your bowels. When you go to the toilet there is this oily film that sits on the surface of the water that the instructions in the Alli box says is the fat that the tablets block from entering your system. The reason I got caught out and had a mishap is that while I was at work I was sat at my desk working normally when I felt some air working it's way through my stomach which I gently and quietly expelled after all I told myself whats the harm it's only an inocent little bit of wind. There was this weird smell like oil and after a while when it didn't dissipate I stood up confused and looked down on my chair feeling even more confusion when I gazed apon this strange oil stain. I still hadn't realised at this point what it was and leaning closer to the stain to investigate further I noticed that it gave off a smell like hyraulic oil so I thought maybe it had leaked somewhere from the chair. I wheeled my chair across the office passed all my work colleagues and out to the communal kitchen area where the MD of my company was making a drink and he jokingly asked me if I had had a little accident I just replied in a mildly embarrassed tone that I didn't know what it was. I quickly sprayed it with a pungent kitchen cleaner and covered it with a cloth to soak it up when I sat back down on it, it was only then that I thought to check my trousers and found that they were wet in my bottom area. The penny at this point started to drop like a lead baloon as I considered in mortified horror that maybe the wind hadn't been as inocent as I first thought. I haven't been so embarrassed in a very long time, I would say ever but I've had other embarrassing moments in the past equally as embarrassing but not I quickly stress of the same nature. This situation is right up there in the top ten most embarrassing moments in my life, yes people thats right Alli made me poo myself at work. I was going to keep this a secret but then I realised that I should try to save other people from experiencing this situation that I found myself in so if you read this and you are just starting to use Alli please heed my warning and be careful in the early days of use.
