Losing weight with sciatica


I have had sciatica for about a year now and it is horrible. I went back to the doctors yesterday to see if she would give me tramadol but once again I failed, she doesn't seem to understand the extent of the pain that I am in. Anyway she also said to try and lose some weight. (im not overly overweight) I'm 13stone and 5ft11 so I don't look like I am 13stone but I do feel it if that makes sense. Anyway how on earth am I going to lose the weight if I can barely move as it is. Any one got any tips etc???
