Hi I am new to this group but not to Spark People.
My biggest struggle is fatigue and pain from osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, diabetes, etc. My doctor has prescribed a medication called Xenical. I have to watch my fat content as it blocks 30% of your body fat and exits through the bowel. I have been on this a week. Thought this was the better recourse since I didn't want to have bariatric surgery.
I have been doing quite well so far. It is such a slow process I wish I could go out and walk but the last few days the weather being rainy, humid has put me so fatigued.
Have a great weekend everyone.

You are what you make yourself. Your motivation is yourself. What you want is your motivation for losing weight. This comes from within. Apparently someone mentioned to me there is no such thing as will power. The power is YOU.
