Hi Nina, congratulations on losing 45 pounds so far! That is quite an accomplishment. I think you are experiencing what a lot of people go through-that annoying plateau to drop the last few pounds! Personally, I don't believe in taking diet pills. I have seen commercials for the Alli. I'm pretty sure there could be some side effects. Have you considered getting assistance from a personal trainer? Maybe work with one for 3-4 sessions and let them help you map out a exercise and nutrition plan for the next 6 weeks?
Another resource you might enjoy is Tom Venuto's, "Burn the Fat Flog." It can be found at www.burnthefatblog.com/
He has some great tips, strategies about weight loss, and keeps people current with what research says about these issues. I really found one free mini-course helpful called "A Shocking Expose of the 12 Biggest Scams, Cover-ups, Lies, Myths and Deceptions in the Diet, Supplement and Weight Loss Industries!" You can find the link on the right side of the page. I hope this helps!
