Weight loss encouragement

Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss encouragement


Avatar f tn Hi! I am 25 years old and have been on Metformin since I was 17 for treatment of PCOS. The side effects when you first take the medication isn't to pleasant. At least wasn't for me. I was sick a lot with diarrhea and nausea. But this will go away after about two weeks on the medication. I too got told to loose a few pounds and I would probably get pregnant rather easily. I weighed almost 400 pounds at the start of seeing this doctor. I now weight 328.8 with her encouragement and dieting.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the reply. 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 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 f tn re all here to be friends and help each other. We came here because we needed help with our weight loss goals, including the friendship and encouragement that's so needed to accomplish our goals. There are a ton of different workouts you can do, you can check out the healthy cooking forum for great food tips. You might want to try our food diary, in which you can list the foods you eat each day and it will give you the number of calories, plus certain nutritional information.
Avatar f tn Are you looking to take B12 as a dietary supplement following weight loss surgery or with the hopes of it helping you lose lose weight? If it is indicated to correct anemia from iron or vitamin B12 deficiencies that can sometimes be associated with weight loss surgery, then receiving them at your doctor's office or obtaining a script from your doctor is most likely the best option. If B-12 injections are being sought to enhance weight loss, there is no evidence to support this.
Avatar f tn Anyone have any ideas about Phentermine, or any weight loss medicine that actually does curb the appetite? Thanks everyone.
1292737 tn?1272559251 I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I just joined the medhelp website last night as both my husband and I have decided that we want to get back into shape. I'm 25 5'9" and 230lbs.....not my happiest moment. Anyhow, I just want to thank you all in advance for the support and encouragement. I'm being optimistic that I will stick with my exercise and eating plans. I'm going to be using "The Firm" workout DVDs and weights and can hardly wait.

1317224 tn?1378705134 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 m tn If you mean B12 shots I get mine from my family doctor. I think I have heard some people say that Dr Bob"s weight loss Clinic gives them also. I've only been getting mine for 2 months now (1 shot, once a month) and my doctor has me on prescription grade vitamins also. He found that my body isnt producing the B12 it should be for me being 28. Do you find yourself being really tired all the time?
1560848 tn?1329487433 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.
Avatar m tn I really want to meet new people that can help and encourage me on my weight loss goal. I just want to start diet to reduce my weight, Can anybody suggest me tips for it or any dietary menu which will help to overcome from obesity? I hope I can keep up with this site with your help.
Avatar f tn Weight loss especially if extreme or associated with lots of exercise can cause a cessation of your period. You also have quite a full schedule. And working nights can throw your entire system off. Personally, I'd see your gynecologist for an evaluation. They could perhaps jump start your hormones with the pill.

Avatar n tn I'm not a medical professional by any means but I think you should trust your instinct if you feel that he is being unfaithful then move on. Talk to him and tell him how much he means to you. There is a possibility that he may not be cheating some envious girls might be trying to stir up trouble. It's your call, I'm sorry about your grandma, stay strong and try eating smaller meals throughout the day. Think positive and the stress will fade away.
11318065 tn?1462984479 I have always known that I was given a gift of working with people who are grieving. I used to run grief and loss group where I worked until I got too deep into my addiction to care anymore to do it! So doors have opened and I am going to be working for myself running grief and loss groups and doing individual counseling at agencies and a few funeral homes. Anyway, I just want to encourage anyone who is knew or just thinking about stopping that there is a whole new life out there for you!!!
Avatar f tn If you feel you need some support and encouragement come and join us on the Weight Loss and Dieting forum here on MedHelp. I also find the food diary and weight tracker fantastic tools. There is a chance that your daughter could get RA or another auto-immune disease but only a chance. There is not always a direct genetic link. Your husband's DNA is in there too. I'd like to ask if you recently went off of birth control pills or are using any hormones to help you to conceive?
