You can take the meds and lose weight via exercise too. Why does it make a person lazy to take medications? Also, 90 days is not enough time to lose weight and to learn to eat healthier for life. It takes the body a month or two just to get adjusted to the exercise and the reduction of calories. Initial weight loss is usually only water weight. Your metabolism may slow down in order to offset the reduction of calories, meaning that your weight loss efforts may be temporarily slowed down, etc.
My advice is to take the meds now and in the meanwhile, start learning to count calories. Find a work out regime that works for you. Start out small. Don't expect to lost 50 pounds in a matter of 90 days! You may only lost 10, which is awesome.
