I mean other than just diet and exercise alone. I live in Canada so options in the U.S. would be different. I need assistance I have been on weight watchers before but I cannot do it alone.

Unless there is a medical reason for the weight the general deal of calories in vs out tends to apply as in 3500 calories = 1 pound thus working out and eating with a calorie range that sustain the burn but has a deficit at the end of the week can be helpful for weight loss in general.

if on medication for some conditions it can make it harder to louse weight in general, so working with your medical team to find the right combo is key.

I walk 5 to 10k a day, eat around 1200 to 2500 calories a day depending on how active I am the more active I am the more I eat to sustain the burn and on top of it all I have other medical that = their own off set of wieght issues so on average I louse 10 lbs a year (which isn't much but its better than nothing at all or gaining).

I tried a lot of different diets and OTC products but have had a hard time sticking to any. When I went to the doctor the gave me a medication that increases my metabolism and energy and another for that decreases my appetite. They are helpful but I still have to get moving more, which is hard with my health.
