Hi everyone..after many years or many failed diets I've been given orlistat from my doctor...I'm now 55 years old...and for at least the last 6 years plus I've gained weight and although I've been to many weight loss classes.have never achieved any significant weight loss . I feel a total failure. ..I wear a coat even in hot weather as I feel so awful about my weight.So I'm hoping that I will achieve the great results that everybody else seem to be getting....any help or advise would be very welcome..and good luck to you all.x
