    Weight related medical condition? Or just getting older?

    Hello, I've always been on the heavier side (5'10'', 230 lb), but could lose weight fairly easily when I put my mind to it. About 3 years ago (I'm 41 now) I had a really bad reaction to sulfa-antibiotics. My whole body turned into a lumpy, purple rash, the top of my tongue developed a pasty white layer, and I felt extremely ill.

Anyone out there want to look in the mirror with me and say - Hey, you've go this girl!
  • Why can't I lose weight?

    About a month ago I started an exercise and weight loss regimen. At the time I started I weighed 209 lbs. I STILL weigh that. I have been walking for at least 30 minutes a day and have given up desserts, except for fresh fruit or 2 squares of dark chocolate. I have been eating less fat and fewer carbs, but I'm not starving myself. I have not lost an ounce. About the time I began the diet I got a cortisone shot in my knees because the insurance company had not yet okayed Synvisc. Is it possible....
