Patient

Q: I am 17 and a size 18 (female) I have always wanted to lose weight but just cant.... I am working and at college, I walk to college and back every day but it's difficult to eat the right food because my parents don't like me eating my own food and it's a kind of 'eat what you are given' situation... I just want to lose weight so badly, I also have acid reflux and asthma so I struggle running and stuff without gagging or throwing up, I don't have diabetes as recently been tested.. I keep on thinking diet pills but I my.parents would kill me if they found out. Any suggestions?
