Avatar m tn Personally, I think I would do like weight-loss programs do...taper off just BEFORE you get to your goal weight and try to finish to the end "all by yourself". Otherwise, I think you will have a hard time maintaining - not just physically, but psychologically. Good for you, though! I'm glad you are doing this "legally", and with a doctor's approval. I know NOTHING about adderall except that I've seen it in magazines. Would it help me to behave? OKAY, Ranae!
5397544 tn?1367370143 Hi! Well, weight gain is a less common side effect of Paxil, so yes, it could cause weight gain, especially if you do not watch what you eat and do not exercise. First determine the number of calories you need to consume per day. You have to first calculate your basal metabolic rate depending on your lifestyle. There are many BMR calculators available on line.
Avatar f tn Do not be discouraged, weight loss can be a slow process but the slower you loss, the higher chance it will stay off. Think of this new way of eating as your new healthy lifestyle and not as a diet. That will help you to keep your weight off, help your blood sugar levels, and keep your body healthy. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I am 5 lbs lighter this morning -- I know it's water weight loss, but I'm still excited! I am going to join a gym so that I can strengthen muscles and maybe tighten the flab that's going to result from losing weight. I find the Paleo plans offer food that are satisfying to me personally and I like the idea of not strictly counting calories. Anyway, maybe we can chat as I go along. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn There's no pain or breathing problems or weight loss. We will wait until the doctor is ready to begin treatment again however long that is. As for me, a few night's of good sleep and painfree days have done wonders. Thank you for your support! J.B.
Avatar f tn On Wednesday, Oct 1st episode of The Today Show, the topic was a shot that is supposed to help with weight loss. I over heard a little of the conversation, but not all, due to being at work. Can anyone tell me the name of it the shot? It's something like CHS, SHC....I just cant remember.
Avatar n tn Carolyn, age 26 I have a DH, daughter Clara- age 3, son Elijah -age 2, and I just gave birth to another daughter, Vivienne- 6 days ago! I am just now beginning my weight loss regimine to lose the 30 pounds from pregnancy. Sigh. I am 5 foot ten and weigh 179 lbs. Good luck to everyone else!
468796 tn?1220033045 Okay, I was born without a thyroid, pretty much all my life (18 years) i have been over weight, not obese, but yeah uncomfterably overweight, i can honestly say, when it comes to TRYING to lose the weight, I haven't had much self control, I've never really tried. Well, since i started actually trying, and fighting my cravings, ive lost 12 pounds..
1317224 tn?1378708734 Thanks, Barb, for the encouragement. Yes, I am a nurse: 6 years in med-surg, 18 in ICU, 4 in emergency room and a few in geriatrics and teaching in an LPN school. Right now, though, I'm unemployed & considering leaving nursing (the industry has changed dramatically & it is difficult to provide even the minimal care that patients need unless you sacrifice your own health)---though it would be quite scary to be a middle-aged, single, mortgage-holding career changer in this economy!
Avatar f tn i have heard about lap band surgery...is it good solution for weight loss also gone through few resources like http://www.freelapbandsurgery.com or something else. Please give me your opinion. Thanks in advance.
727554 tn?1275758368 Don't know how much weight you have to lose, but how about waiting until the weight is lost, then get the piercing? Use the piercing as an incentive to lose the weight - sort of a "treat" for both you and your hubby to look forward to. Just think of how sexy you would feel!! Yep, that's what I'd do. lol.

Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar m tn So far NO loss of appetite or loss of weight. To be honest my wife is pregnant and she might give delivery anytime. My sexual encounter was nothing which was natural to me. On bad day, i loose my inhibitions hence ended up paying for sex with prostitute. I did use condom but my oral sex was unprotected. My sexual encounter lasted merely 8-10 minutes. Since then i have been feeling very bad, low, full of anxiety, etc.
Avatar f tn hello, I'm just looking for a little encouragement. I go through periods of time where i get really stressed out, anxious, and restless over the small everyday things that normally don't stress me out and it's really frustrating during these periods. I've been going through this off and on for the past 5 years or so. I realized maybe a year or so ago with several of my blood test over that period that my TSH would bounce up and down going from 2's and 3's up to over high 4's and 5's.
Avatar n tn I have been extremely fatigued, had a sore throat, and no appetite to speak of. I've lost weight and have had body aches. On the bright side I did not have any fever above 99 and there has been no rash. So I know I need to get tested again if for anything my sanity. Yet I'm more scared now tha anything. I have a family that I love and can't live without and I have no plan if the test comes out positive. What else could cause a cold like this that lasts so long?
Avatar f tn I SAY I'M GREAT, DEEP DOWN INSIDE I WONDER MY FATE--I SEE U EACH DAY AND LOOK INTO UR EYES, I JUST CAN'T LIVE WITH ALL THESE LIES--LEAVING THIS EARTH I CAN NOT HANDLE, BUT I MUST GO WITH GOD WHEN HE GIVES ME A CANDLE--MY DOCTOR SAYS THAT I AM REALLY SICK, BUT I WILL NOT GIVE IN, I WON'T LIGHT THAT WICK--I'M DETERMINED TO FIGHT THIS AND GET BACK TO MY LIFE, I NEED TO BE THE BEST MOTHER AND WIFE--THE MEDS I AM ON, U THINK WTF, SOME DAYS R GOOD, OTHERS JUST SUCK--I DON'T WANT U TO JUDGE ME OR GIVE
Avatar f tn When the body doesn't receive the nutrients it needs, it takes the protein from your muscles for energy. This causes weight loss and decreases in muscle mass and, therefore, strength. A balanced diet with adequate calories, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates can help the damaged liver regenerate new liver cells. ♦ The diet should be high in complex carbohydrates (55-60% of calories), low in total fat (25 - 30% of calories) and moderate in protein (15- 20% of calories).
Avatar n tn I only did 6 months TX but the last4 months was while I was trying to work. Lost ALOT of weight, skin color was ashen, hair loss, the whole enchilada! What I found the most helpful was having access to all the meds needed to combat the sx's and I drank bottle after bottle of H2o. I think the water is the key. The new pegulated formula requires absolute hydration for it to slow release as intended.
Avatar f tn I have high blood pressure and slightly enlarged heart (normal range), but I've been told that both are because of the pressure I have put on my body from my weight and the one time I lost 15 kilos, the hbp dropped, I almost came of meds. I am on hbp meds but I know that in four months with the weight gone, so will the meds be gone. I also went on antidepressants after dad died because I became anxious and depressed.
Avatar n tn myself in the past two week. Please help. He needs to lose weight but without any kind of encouragement on the scale, I fear he will lose momentum. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I drink tons of water, NO sugars, NO sweets, I rarely drink soda and if I do its diet soda. I am happy with my 35 lb weight loss and my behavior change in the way i eat but I feel i am stuck . I will definitly stick to my plan and try to get over this bump in the road. thanks for your comment!
1560848 tn?1329491033 Hi Mara, My wife started on the 2nd Jan and she has lost about 18 lbs. So initially you can expect a good weight loss. Just make sure that you really stick to the HCG Protocol.
