Just been to doctors for contraception only to be told I am seriously obese and need to lose weight before she will prescribe the pill again I am 47 and feel my age is against me a few years back I was just eight and half stone but now weigh 12 and half. I have lost a stone since Christmas but only by walking for half an hour each day and cutting back on portion size but now it has stopped coming off! I feel really down as it isn't like I haven't been trying and my new partner is really overweight and doesn't see any reason to lose any which isn't helping. So need some motivation and tips on what really works! Thank you for your help.
