Thanks for the awesome information.
It definitely makes sense how I am at the weight I am now with burning fewer calories started at 23 years old. Couple that with having two kids between 28 and 32, which I gained the right amount of weight, but didn't do it healthfully at all. It makes sense that I am taking on weight fast and easy.
I'm not sure if the Cymbalta I am on has any effect on weight gain...I did start it about three years ago, which is when I started gaining the 30 pounds back.
I'll look into the thyroid problem just to rule it out. I guess I'll just have to stick with my plan of eating better, exercising regularly, and just dealing with the weight.
Oh, I did have a question, if you don't mind. What happens to those empty fat cells? Do they ever go away over time? Or are they stuck in your body until you die?
