can anyone give me some advice????

i am a single mother of 2 boys i am on welfare and they only cover certain prescriptions. due to my low income i dont have a good diet and due to having 2 young toddlers its hard for me to go for walks ect.

i was always big but i usually stayed around the 210-230 weight range. but ever since i had my kids i have had troubles and i have been going back and forth between 255-280 i just dont feel good i feel gross! i have no energy i actually have a anxiety of going in public which is also adding to my issue of getting out more and just walking around. i will get ready to go out ad i will sit there for hours dreading going in public.

with my first son i started off at 230 and by the end of the pregancy i weighed 311 because i was in an abusive relationship and was literally not allowed to leave the house or talk on the phone or touch a computer without being accused of cheating and being called a bunch of nasty names one being walrus.

with my secod pregnancy i started off at 275 and ended at 309 i did better that time because we broke up in the middle of the secod trimester and now he doesnt even have the decency to say hi to his kids on the phone.

i feel like im so fat that when i go in public i feel like people are staring at me and judging me, i cannot bring myself to eat in public its stopping me from getting my grade 12 its stopping me from going out to the park and the beach in the summertime it stops me from taking my babies to the park i barely take them there. i have no energy and i just feel like crap.

i talked to my doctor and first he told me i have depression and prescribed me celexa and now he says i am obese and i need to lose weight and i do believe if i lose even just 30 pounds that i would have alot less issues with going in public and doing things.

he prescribed me xenical and ive read nothing but good things about the results people have gotten on it.

apart from the side effects but i spend most of my time at home with my babies so that wont be much of an issue. my problem now is the pharmacist told me it isnt covered and it will cost 168 for one box of it, i dont have that kind of money so i am wondering if there is a generic brand of it that may be covered or some organization that can help me out and also wondering what your results were on xenical.

i am currently 5ft8 and i weight 260ish.
