    Truth to tell Bill, my Endo had more to do with it than I did. I've had the dedication and self-discipline in spades for years and it never made a bit of difference. I cut so much bad stuff out of my life, kept healthier eating habits than most people I know, worked out like a mad woman for years and NOTHING happened.

My GP finally convinced me to see an Endocrinologist. Within the first meeting she had me diagnosed, a week later in the hospital for genetic tests to confirm it, and a month later started me on treatment for this very rare, congenital disorder that I inherited from my Mom.

The weight just started coming off. Admittedly yes, still exercising and eating right, but the meds made a difference that even seeing doesn't tell the whole story. It's like having a whole new body. And for that, I'll be eternally grateful! Thanks for the vote of support Bill!!!
