Avatar n tn My nicotine cravings are now under control, (I quit cold turkey so there is no nicotine substitute), so I have gone on a low fat, low calorie diet and I am participating in an exercise program of low impact aerobics.

Thanks, G.C.

Another issue that can cause inability to lose weight, is insulin resistance, which is the same as pre-diabetes.

Your family history suggests heart problems will visit you, especially because you smoke and are considered obese. I'ts not easy to quit, I know, but certainly it's possible. Losing weight is tough, also.
