    Weight loss

    I've struggled with my weight ever since giving birth to my children. So much so that I was about 100 lbs overweight. In December of 2017 I had gastric Sleeve weight loss surgery. This is where about 3/4 of your stomach is removed and you're left with an egg sized stomach. I've lost 85 lb but need to lose about 20 more. The weight loss has stopped. The surgery was a god-send and the hardest but best thing I have ever done for myself. Any one out there in my boat that still needs to lose....

    Belly fat or loose skin?

    I had serious health problems which left me bedridden for two years, during which time I put on an additional 70 pounds. But I recovered, and through a program of intense exercise and strict dieting over a period of 9 months, I took that 70 pounds back off. But although I’m now at my ideal weight (according to WebMD and the Mayo Clinic’s website), I still have some belly fat that seems extremely resistant to coming off. Or so I thought. Squeezing this “fat” in the palm of my hand, it’s only about....

    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....
