      hi rada. sorry to hear you're struggling. Thought I'd share what I do;

      I have no more than 3g of fat per meal.

      I drink around 3 litres of water(still have about 2 cans of zero Sugar fizzy pop, 1 nescafe cappuccino and about 2 cups of tea with sweetener.

      I try to find yogurts and jelly with very little or no Sugar and fat free.

      I have either chicken,cod or haddock with my meals. usually one day veg one day salad.

      soups with little fat and a few original ryvita to dip in.

      I take a multivitamin at night.

      I take orlistat about 10mins b4 each meal. xxx

      I start taknig Orlistat and im in my 10th tablet but nothing happened yet, i do feel bloated and im thinking to stop because its not working for me. however this is give me motivation to loose weight now with or without Orlitat . 

      it might not fit for  everyone but i am gona to try it for the next few days and see what will happen . 

      i started to attend   spininig classes and i have already seeing results in my weiset. 

      my suggestion is to go back to ur GP and have a disscussion on other oprions. 

      good luck
