    Finally Losing Weight

    I’ve been obese for over twenty years and have tried multiple diets and failed at them all. I started having health issues last year and severe knee problems. I knew I had to do something about my weight, I don’t want to die before I’m 50. My husband (we’ve been married 25yrs) decided to join me but we’ve decided to make a complete lifestyle change instead of dieting and I’m finally losing weight. Starting last December we’ve been cutting out things from our diet. We’ve been trying various vegan....

    Stress at work

    It's only at work that I eat sweets and junk! I never see anyone talking about this! I really like my job but it's a grind commuting by train 5 days a week. My husband and I practice yoga stretches every single morning 5 days a week at 4:30 am, yes 4:30 AM!! The weekends are relaxing and easy going. I feel like a baby whining about how I can't stop eating sweets and no one is helping me! lol

    Need a change

    I'm 36, a mother to 8. I recently went to a doctor's appointment and was told i was overweight (duh doc). Ever since I had my last 2 kids I've been struggling with my weight. I am well over 100+ lbs overweight. I am 5'11 and at 282 as of 2 days ago. I find myself struggling with portion control and eating the right things as I am a picky eater as I've been told. Any help?

    Need a change; weightloss, muscle build!

    I'm 37, father of 5, husband and an overweight and out of shape officer. I NEED to change things, but I struggle with ongoing motivation, what to do and most importantly, I don't have a lot of extra means (Money) for the food I should be eating or the gym. I have a kettlebell and heavy bag. I struggle with portion control and have a terrible sweet tooth. 5 years ago, I was 170 with defined pecs, abs, arms and a defined jaw line. Now I'm ridiculed for being the fat guy in a little coat....

    Tired of trying and failing

    Hey. I'm 40, 5'4", 240 (give or take 2 pounds). I've done a lot of different things, quitting sugar, quitting carbs, meal replacement shakes, intense exercise, light exercise, intermittent fasting, and more. And guess what? None of it works. My clothes don't feel different, I don't look different and the scale certainly hasn't changed. Please can someone offer some kind of reasonable solution. I just want to be healthy.

    Post gallbladder surgery

    Life changes after this. It has been about 10 years since my gallbladder removal. Fats are not absorbed and certain foods and habits will change for good, but not for the good. Any suggestions?

    Dunlap Disease

    Yes, my stomach "done lapped over my britches". Walking has become an issue. One, I certainly need to stretch, my calves are literally threatening me. OMW they burn and ache so bad. Of course there is my belly, I believe it is pulling my back forward, making it feel like muscle exhaustion within minutes of walking. Do you think that wearing a girdle will help relieve this issue to get me going? Still I understand that I must work on my core, but in the meantime by using a girdle could it....

    Options

    I just turned 18 and I am 5"3 and 174. In summer 2017 (June) I was 146 and felt ok. Still a little bit chubby. But in August 2017 I was 177-183 and I felt like crap. In October for my birthday I wanted to buy a pretty dress to wear to my party but I completly gave up and I realized I needed to change not only for visual reasons. I'm adopted and don't know too much abt my family health except for that I'm the only person without diabetes. I get checked as I should for diabetes. But....
