    Hi eat2live.
    Firstly, congrats on losing the weight.
    My advice would be to drink lots of water (couple of litres) and try senokot. There is a double strength one if you are still struggling.
    You could also try going for a long walk to ease things a bit. Have you dried prunes in juice rather than dried ? The fruit juice may help.
