Hi I'm a 46 year old South African woman. Gained 25 kg (approx 50 lbs) past 17 months though eating habits havnt changed. Went to dietician still hardly any change. Gone 4 tests, blood, sugar, hormones, colestrol, bloodpress etc. All normal but sugar & colestrol bit high. Come out of bad 12 months. Mentally maybe. Need to loose weight VERY VERY seriously & VERY VERY soon. Affecting me badly. Depressed - other problems now too ie. feet swell, water retention, sore legs,m shortness of breath, battle to climb stairs and walk, tire easily. Cant exercise lot either hardly any catlidge in my knees and lower back catlidge prob as well. No money for costly opps. Lipolytic injections-will this help...

I know myself & am in urgent need of weight loss I look terrible and am battling health wise
