How Do You Get Rid Of The Munchies On A Small Fixed Income?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

It seems like I can't get rid of the munchies. Usually I buy one 2 pound bag of baby carrots and go through them in a couple of days. I can only get groceries at the first of the month or I would buy them more often. I know my munchies stem from wanting the crunch but once the carrots are gone I feel like I'm doomed.

Does Anyone Who Lives In Charlotte, Know Of A Doctor That Will Do Surgery On Lymphedema On Thights? Please Let Me Know
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm battling a condition called lymphedema on my thights and it has put a stop on my mobility, I can't do much of anything, I can barely get out the house, I can only walk a few step without being tied, it's a struggle to just go to the bathroom. I've been battling this for 5 almost 6 years now and it's getting harder by the day.

Everyone would stick to their Lifestyle Change routine but at anytime, anyone that is doing the challenge with us can pop a question to keep us on our toes.
