I can empathize with you as I know that steroids changed my body and limbs and I packed on the weight. It's amazing what happened to me as well.

I need help making a meal plan to lose 30-40 pounds.

I need help making a meal plan to lose 30-40 pounds.

Hi, I'm 39 years old and am having a lot of trouble losing weight. I need help making a meal plan that will help me lose 30-40 pounds, and I don't really care how boring it is, and the more specific it is the better (time to eat, exact quantities etc). I don't know if I should go to a dietician or if someone here can help me with a plan or point me in the right direction.

Also, I can prepare food while I am at home, but when I am at work I can not prepare food… read more

Does anyone else here have arthritis in their back and knees? If so, what treatments have worked for you?

Does anyone else here have arthritis in their back and knees? If so, what treatments have worked for you?

I have arthritis in my back that has been treated with injections. I've even had the nerve endings in the L3-L5 region in my back burned and had a cortisol shot in my s1 region. The swelling is gone, but not the pain. My knees have been left untreated. The pain gets unbearable at times, but my doctor only says lose weight. I've told her several times that I'm usually an active person, but pain makes me not want… read more

What can I have for breakfast that won't make me feel sick?

What can I have for breakfast that won't make me feel sick?

I don't eat breakfast. Even when I'm awake during breakfast hours, I feel like my stomach is still a sleep and not ready for food. I get sick most of the time. I already struggle most days to eat two meals a day, but I need to get up to three meals a day. What can I do for breakfast that won't make me feel sick?

any advice on just getting started

any advice on just getting started

I am having a hard time just finding the energy and motivation to even start anything. I know what I need to do, i make the plan to do it but then just can't bring myself to get moving. It's like I talk myself out of it before I even get started.

Letters of Medical Necessity

Letters of Medical Necessity

Hello All!

I am brand new to the site here. I'm 32, and I've been heavy all my life. I have arthritis in my knees and have PCOS too. I'm going to my dr on Friday for my annual exam and I'm afraid of the news I'll hear. I have swelling in my legs and some signs of diabetes so I'm afraid that may be an outcome. I'm also planning to talk to her about Contrave. I've taken Contrave before and lost about 20lbs, but it was expensive and I couldn't afford it anymore. I'm in a better position… read more

Muscle weighs more than fat, so you could see weight plateau or gain due to that as you build muscle.

Other factors like genetics, health issues like… read more
