Thank you everyone for your replies - I am NOT taking the pill to lose weight it is for my reflux and the doc said the extra weight makes reflux worse and as my esophagus is damaged already - the pill does not seem to be preventing it (it does help some) so hopefully with weight lose it will help. Im guessing the reflux is from the extra weight because I do not eat hot, spicy foods. I will definitely ask the doctor to test for what you suggested. I am having a hard time eating 3 meals a day - I have never been a breakfast person but have to learn to force myself.

emoticon Denise. I'd like to share the following considerations.
1st. The problems with overweight are very individual. Your case proves it since you have none of the "classic" causes leading to putting on weight - you're not an "overeater", you don't eat bread nor have a sweet tooth... Ask your doc to do the tests necessary to establish the reason - thyroid problems, diabetes, metabolic problems or whatever???
2nd. Are you taking those pills for losing weight? If so - please reconsider and find more info on the topic - from what I know I'm strongly opposed to that kind of coping with the problem!
3rd. From what you say it's not clear if the long lasting reflux problem had kind of caused putting on weight or you must now lose weight to make after operational healing easier. I think it's very important to make the picture much clearer - so you can be sure of causes and effects and then formulate a plan to cope.
Wish you good luck!

Welcome. Try exercising at least 10 minutes a day and then try to increase it. Drink plenty of water.

Welcome. I've been on a plateau for 9 months now, so I know what you mean when you say you don't know where to start. For me, I think I need to burn more calories, but it's difficut with the arthritis and other things. It sounds odd but you do have to eat to lose weight. I'd suggest starting by reading the articles in the nutrition tab under 'Articles & Videos.' I recently read an article in Prevention that said after 40 we need to increase our protein intake a little to lose weight. I'm giving that a try. It just takes trying different things until you find what works for you.

Hello Everyone - I am for the 1st time in my life trying to lose weight - I am 51 and never had a weight problem but the last 10 years it has appeared - I am not a over eater - in fact I have to learn to eat more - I usually only ate once a day and occasionally I eat lunch - Never breakfast - I don't eat breads and not a big sweet person and don't like chocolate - so where has al this weight come from? Somedays I have almost no energy for anything - I am a travel agent so I sit at a desk a lot - I have suffered from acid reflex for those 10 years and it is so bad it damaged my esophagus and had to have surgery a few weeks ago - my doc said I need to lose weight to help with the acid reflex - I do take protonix everyday and it does help some - I need to lose at least 40 pounds - I don't where to start - I am here for all the help, support, encouragement, suggestions anyone has. I want to be healthy and feel good again.
~ Denise
