Hi Meg,
Welcome to SP and the Kentucky Team.
I wish I had some good advice that would make it happen faster for you. I know how you feel.
I was fit and healthy for years, but since I quit smoking and then started menopause, I have struggled with weight gain that just won't go away.
The only advice I can give you is not to give up. Keep fighting!

Best of luck to you.

Hi to all, my name is Meg and I have stuggled with my weight my entire life. I was tested when I was 6 yrs old for my thyroid to make sure it was functioning correctly, mainly because my sister and I ate the exact same things and she was very skinny and I was chubby! I lost 150 lbs about 14 years ago and have slowly put 100 pounds back on! I had kept the weight off for over 10 years,watched every morsel I put in my mouth and was an exercise fiend! I had some bad luck and lost my job and changed careers. My self esteem seemed to plummit with my income! I have tried every thing to loose weight and the pounds don't seem to be budging! I have even undergone weight loss surgery with a lap band on Feburary 21st and have only lost 15 lbs! I know others who in the same amount of time have lost 40 pounds. I have talked to my doctors about this and they say, because I am diabetic it is harder for me to loose weight. That seems like a cop out to me! I have started walking again, but just this week my heel spur has started hurting again and I find it very hard to walk with the pain! If anyone has any suggestions... I would appreciate them!!
