Weight Gain - Havelock, NC
Hello, everyone. My weight gain problem started in Feb . of 07 after my Gal Bladder surgery . Before the surgery i was in alot of pain all the time , but able to lose weight in no time . My age has not been an issue when it comes to losing weight in the past . People keep telling me "it's probably your age" It could be a part of my problem but not a very big part of it . I'm only 32 , and have never struggled with sheading the lbs. But since the surgery i am struggleing and am extremely discouraged . I am desperate for your help . Thank you

Good Morning F....
I would say...with the advice of your doctor...try counting your carbs...have nothing "white"...nothing fried...lots of fruit and veggies along with chicken and fish...Just recently I was told that I have diabeties 2..and before I had my learning class on how to deal with it...I did this and have lost 13 pounds...Doc told me Wed., to keep doing what I was doing...it isn't hard to do...as a diabetic I am suppose to keep the carbs at 45 total a day...it is hard to do but if you start watching and looking you can keep them a great deal lower...drink lots of water...I use the Walmart brand sugarless flavoring...no sugar...at all...sacchrine tea if that is what you like...no sodas...we eat well here and I am hoping the change in our eating habits will help my husband as well...good luck...let us know how it goes...

I can tell you about a system that just recently finished trials; they were great. It is called My Victory! and you can purchase it at www.wandafloyd.mypharmanex.com. The weight loss success has been between 21 and 55 lbs and the program has a legitimate weight loss guarantee. The weight stays off because it is healthy weight loss. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions, call 1-877-736-7630.

Do you think the medicine you are taking for pain can cause weight gain?

Hi F. i know exactly how you feel. i have always struggled with my weight. I work in an office were we give weight managment there is a diet pill prescribed by the Dr. called adipex you lose weight really fast but you of course have to eat right or it will come back. You are a military family so the bad news is that you will have to go off base and pay in full if you go into a Dr. Office and ask for weight management the vist will be about 100.00 and the prescription cant be filled on base and and will cost you 30.00 at CVS if you have any other ins. they will cover the vist but you will have to pay for the pils. cut out sodas and fried food and try to get in 25 grams of fiber a day and exercise 30 min a day get a sweat suit from walmart $7 not just any sweat suit this one looks like a trash bag and will make you sweat after 5min of putting it on it works wounders exercise in it and you will look like Beyonce in no time. Happy Dieting

What is your routine? It can be very difficult to lose weight considering our lifestyle (sounds like you're very busy!) I don't think that at 32 you are too old to lose weight. Could it be that you are not eating regularly? How many days during the week do you get to exercise? Many people cut out meals thinking that it will help to lose weight when in reality it slows your metabolism and makes it more difficult. I'm sure you know this. Don't get discouraged, though. That will always make it more difficult to shed the lbs. You can do this! You just have to find what works for you.

I can relate to you in the fact that I have really never had a "huge" weight problem. I am a solid person by nature. Never skinny. I started having weight issues when I turned 35. It's like my metabolism just stopped dead in its tracks. I am trying to get more exercise and cut out carbs because carbs turn to sugar which turn to fat. I took my oldest daugh to the doctor fearful she had thyroid issues because she took a huge weight gain recently. He told me to look up glycemic index online and get some recipe ideas from these sights. You will find that most are geared toward diabatics, but the concept is the same in cutting out things that your body turns to sugar. I do not encourage the use of alternative sweetner like Splenda or Equal. Those fry your brain. I do encourage Xylitol or Stevia which are all natural sweetners instead of sugar in recipes (you can find these at health food stores)
I hope this helps in some way. I am with you on this one. We will learn together.
Bless you and your famiy. Thank your hubby for me for serving this country and keeping us safe. My friends husband just left for Iraq. His name is Jesse if you could pray for him.

I have found that weight watchers is really working for me. It's been 9 weeks and I've lost 23 pounds. It's not too hard, and I can make normal food that my husband and daughter will eat. I go to weekly meeting for support but do most of my "work" recording my meals and finding meals online with "etools" by weight watchers. Check it out...good luck!
