1498386 tn?1403031253 Now that we are ttc and found out I have PCOS I have been struggling with the weight loss. So far in 8 months I have only been able to loss 30lbs. What really helped me was that I took out the high calorie foods and drinks ie: Starbucks and all pop. I will only drink pop when we go out to eat because I hate restaurant water (most places do not filter). Starbucks is a rare thing for me now I just can’t pass up the Pumpkin Spice thank goodness its only seasonal.

2214310 tn?1339288751 If anyone is interested. I am looking to get stories from others who suffer from Chiari Malformation. I am going to send them to Dr. Oz, and try and get him to do a show about Chiari and what we and our families go through. I want to send him a bunch of our stories and I am going to send them to The doctors show, and who ever else we can think of. I figured if I snail mail them a bunch at once, they may pay more attention to it then just an email.
Avatar m tn All the previous credible studies I have ever read have shown that damage levels below Cirrhosis levels have not been a factor in Svr rates. All cite age,gender,time you've had Hcv,weight,and other things as being far more likely to effect Svr rates than anything else. I would really like to see the whole study and not just an abstract on this before I believe that fibrosis effects Svr as much as they state.
Avatar f tn I'll never know for sure as I was scared to step on the scale, but the last time I weighed myself I was up 85 lbs. ANYWAYS I was just hoping for other people to share their methadone weight loss stories! I find them very inspirational, so please, share your experiences! How much did you guys gain on methadone? How long after you quit methadone for you to lose the weight? What was your eating/exercising plan during this time? I look forward to hearing all your stories!

Avatar f tn Does anyone have any success stories about losing weight after being put on Synthroid? I would like to hear some encouraging words. I have gained 50 pds. and are miserable. I have not been on meds long enough to tell any difference in energy or hunger, but I am hopeing there will be some difference in the future.
Avatar n tn 50 mg) helped me sleep, but the weight loss doc doesn't prescribe extra meds--have to go to the pcp for that and I don't have a refill so I am taking the xanax sparingly. The clinic told me he usually tells patients to take some benedryl at night. Or Tylenol PM. Hope that helps. I do that, too, but my youngest doesn't wake up every night. 10 lbs is great for 3 weeks on phen. I understand the cheating, too, but what I have noticed is that it leads to more cravings.
504000 tn?1242504393 Pregnancy weight gain: 40Ibs "Immediate" weight loss: 20 Ibs in 2 weeks Weight loss 6 weeks postpartum: ~28 Ibs. Only now am I taking measures to actually aid weight loss though.
Avatar n tn proper exercise as you can digest your food. See weight loss is not a fly by night process. It takes time. common weight loss mistakes are as follows: (1) you have to fix your diet plan according to you(becuase u r obese) not according to a average person. this thing is often ignored by most of the people. because they follow a diet plan that is suitable for an average healthy man.
Avatar f tn My physician responded to my request for help, and being discouraged about my lack of weight loss by trying to prescribe prozac for weight loss and of course depression. Since when does Prozac aide weight loss? I did not receive any response to what else could I do/try/ who to see etc. Or an answer as to what they syntroid was doing for me, since I was still not losing weight, but losing hair, and still had high triglycerides. Also no response to my ??
Avatar f tn I have had no side effects so far (except weight loss and minor headache) and am scared to be totally off of it. I am choosing a natural route. I attended a workshop and now purchased a book. It's called feeling good: the handbook. I highly suggest it to help change the way you are acting. I know where you are coming from though, prior to the pills everyone in my life was at the end of their ropes as well. Today, they tell me how pleasant I am.
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 f tn 99 at Ikea, good deal!) so I hopped on it and I have lost over 20lbs. I was never trying to lose weight and this loss has come upon in the last 6 months. I'm not excercising any more then before can the tramadol just do that? Is it from being up all night? Is this a really bad sign or normal?
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 f tn My endocronologist whom I see for hypothyroidism has prescribed topamax for weight loss. I am so afraid to take the first dosage of 25 mg. I keep reading horror stories that sound like I will have a personality transformation and never be normal again. :)) I am considered obese and need help with weight loss. Can anyone reassure me about this drug?
