One other person who made a review also mentioned that she lost weight. But it is very difficult to say that you will definitely lose weight on a pill. Everyone reacts differently while on different pills. I guess you'll only find out once you go on it ... and if it doesn't work for you and makes you gain weight then you can stop taking it.
