Avatar n tn book, because he has had successful weight lost using the book. So I guess it is all in my head right, I know that I can go on a liquid fast twice in a 12 week period and not lose anything at all, but it is all in my head. I found this forum, while searching for proof (to give to my doctor) that hysterectomies can cause weight gain. I would like to show him that their are many women in the world and all over the world battling with this problem.
Avatar n tn I forget to eat, don't want to eat, strive for that smaller size, although everyone tells me that that is enough weight loss. I will be 50 years old next year, and look all of .... well, lets say no one guesses I am 50. I did an extremem makeover on myself without surgery, I tell everyone (hair, makeup, body and attitude...) Topomax works for many things. Just be careful. I am dropping the WElbutrin to see if that picks my appetite back up a little so I can maintain a size 4.
Avatar n tn I have been taking 500mg of metformin ER for over a year now. I haven't lost any weight, but I do feel like it helps me keep the smallest amount of control over my weight gain. Has anyone lost weight taking 1000mg? Is 500 just not enough? Would love hear from you. You can also email me.
Avatar n tn my family and boyfriend blame it on muscle weight, but as small as my frame is, my weight is extremely unnatural. No matter how much i try, the weight seems to stay the same and my self esteem is at its worst.
619345 tn?1310345021 I started treatment weighing in at 210-215...believe it or not....thats my normal weight...i just got huge frame...big bones too....i was down to 195 a few weeks ago...but i went up to 210 just smelling food...i cant help it....
Avatar n tn I am new here, and after reading these posts, I see that I am not alone with these symptoms. I am 55, post menapausal, and have gained 40 pounds in 2 months. I too have had to buy larger size clothes to fit my larger size. My 5'5" small boned frame went from 150 lbs to 190 lbs so fast! My PCP gave me a lecture on my weight gain and ordered TSH and CBC twice. They all came back within normal limits.
Avatar n tn Maybe it is a combinations of drugs that cause the weight gain. I know I am a flight attendant who wore a size 8 when I started my job (I had already been on lexapro for 2 yrs) Then I was hurt on a flight (I blew a disk out in my neck), I had to have a spinal fusion and when they finally sent me to a pain mangement doctor this past november he placed me on Lyrica and I am now up to a size 14. I am working very hard to get back down on my weight. I will let you know how the Topamax works.
Avatar n tn My body fat has increased and my pants size has increased. Why can't I lose the weight or at least the body fat? Does anyone have advice for me?
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
Avatar n tn Thank you for mentioning this. I'm not a overly large person in my opinion but every time I take the BMI it tells me I'm overweight. My family, friends and coworkers say I look fine for my height. I know I have a larger bone structure because I can't get bracelets to slide over my hands, I can't wear anklets and I can wear blazers unless I have them altered to fit after I buy them because my shoulders are wide.
Avatar n tn If I'm not hyper it would be worth dealing with these issues but I don't want my health or bones (osteopenia) to suffer if I am hyper. Same with my weight. It's good to be slim and I never had a weight issue even when hypo. My max weight was 140lbs and that was about 3 years ago. I began to lose weight without reason but I think I was swinging between hyper and hypo back then but knew nothing about it at the time.
Avatar m tn It is true that some people will build up muscles faster and such but the limitation are more due to your frame size. Maybe the people you see getting quick results are using substances or quick mass gaining products such as Quick Mass which is a high fructose whey proteins with creatine. It is indicated to take massive amount of it between meals which is very likely to make you gain weight and build up muscles quickly. Is it healthy?
Avatar n tn Hello. I have been working to get down to my ideal weight for several months now, and I am doing very well. However, my doctor prescribed me Zoloft today to treat my anxiety, and even though I addressed the issue of weight gain with her and she told me that I would need to watch my carbs and exercise consistently, I am quite worried about gaining back the weight I've lost (almost 20 lbs).
479244 tn?1271567259 My scales say I have lost weight but all my clothes fit the same and I wobble in all my large muscle areas. I have definitely lost muscle which I believe accounts for the discrepancy in weight vs size. On my previous tx I gained 8 kgs after tx and I am fully expecting the same thing to happen when I finish this time and am already planning an exercise regime to start as soon as I get bit more energy back.
Avatar m tn Hi, Weight loss to your ideal weight, or as close to it as possible, can help you get healthy and stay that way. Given your excess weight and sedentary lifestyle, it is possible that you can develop other obesity-induced disorders, such as diabetes and hypertension, if you do not lose some weight and modify your lifestyle. It is obvious that weight loss will bring about a significant difference to your current problem, given its physiological and psychological impacts.
4726133 tn?1361993373 I don't know if you feel inspired to get creative with your cooking, but the right spices will make all the difference in a meal. Here is a link discussing a recipe using tumeric which I think is quite good. I have learned that most of my favorite foods come down to how they are seasoned. I agree about organic products, particularly with meat. http://www.medhelp.

276983 tn?1308577648 I've heard of plenty of women giving birth to 9+ lb babies, but my doctor was the first to say that you always have to consider your options (in terms of c-section or not) if it ends up looking like the babies health might be at risk... and he seemed to think that with my smaller frame and the ever-growing size of the baby, that she might end up having problems coming out.
Avatar n tn I don't work for them but I have, over the past TWENTY years successfully lost weight using this center AND their B-12 injections. I'm not perfect... I like many of your, lost weight... forget WHY I tried so hard to lose the weight... gained weight back. However.... when I just can't stand it any longer I call Physician's Weight Loss Center. I have always used their system 4 diet plan. It is 30 pounds in 10 weeks. Their website is located at: http://www.pwlc.
Avatar f tn It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January. I'm not worried about the holidays because I have been turned off all food and I don't think it will be difficult to continue following what the naturopath has told me to do. By the a lot of really facilitates weight loss. I eat about 500g of yogourt per day and drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day.
Avatar f tn I agree that i'm not in a situation to warrant removal of my thyroid, i do however believe that i am being mis-treated wether that be under or over treated in addition to this the irradical treatment methods they are using doesn't seem appropriate just in the logical sense.

Avatar n tn of course ! unless you the 2 male things we have down there..stop it..HCG does not in anyway help with weight loss..need proof...just ask...
Avatar f tn well not to cold that would be unbearable, just comfortably luke warmish, but definitely not hot. Twice a day is ideal because it cools you before you start your day, and after been out and about. Similarly if the itching gets really bad,and unbearable, hop into bath. I used others things recommended by doctor, such as hydrocortisine, this only helped with itching at first and became ineffective after a while. Similarly it made my skin tough and scaly.
Avatar n tn Only side effect that I have is monthly cycle is all messed up and little weight gain but I think weight gain is my own fault to many soda and sugar crave. Jennifer how is your hubby?
Avatar f tn I just want my money back...........10 freakin months is crazy.........AND FOR WHAT????????? NO DAMN RESULTS,IN FACT WEIGHT AND INCH GAIN INSTEAD. THIS PLACE IS A BOGUS, THEY DONT BACK UP WHAT THEY PROMISE AT ALL. I'm sorry, I'm only maybe 60 lbs overweight and 6 ft tall, I'm not a real heavy person- there is NO reason for this, this should have been easy! I was only 40 lbs over my normal weight when I began this program. I WISH I NEVER GOT SUCKERED INTO THIS BY ADVANCED LIPO DISSOLVE.
Avatar n tn I want to see if they will notice anything. I'm currently at 212. My ideal weight is around a max of 179. But, my bf% is well under 20%. In act it is around 15. But the problem areas are still there. No matter what I do the problem areas remain. I'll be running the 23 day plan. I hope this will get me where I need to be.
244899 tn?1313628239 the article below I believe states that even more than half weight would be ideal . Drink up folks.. Will
Avatar f tn Has the cost been more than anyone else has paid. I am desparate to lose the last 10lbs to reach a weight of 135 on my 5' 2in frame..
Avatar f tn If you avoid all grain you will immediately see results in size, besides weight. Within 3 months I went from an extra large to a small, loosing approximately 10 lbs a month. Your body will know when you've reached your weight goal. You may be wondering how the loss of 30 lbs made such a difference, because of the swelling. From research on the internet, which I've found to be true, it takes approximately 6-8 months for all the swelling to go away.
