  • I doubt it.. but i know if your using a iud as bc it could be the problem... i had one for a year and couldn't get below 228 no matter what i did.. it was taken out thursday and i'm starting to lose...

    also.. most dr's will just tell you to eat and exercise and try harder... i know i took cla and acai supplements and it helped me lose weight and tone up

  • Nope. You are not nearly enough overweight for that. You are really only 20lbs at most over. I am 5'2" and 217. I could get them, but, I am starting to exercise. I have been eating healthy for awhile.

  • i don't think you need any medical help.... just keep doing a little more and a little better. you said you are eating healthy, have you cut processed foods, do you get 5 veggies a day, and are you drinking enough water? you could add weights to your workout. try altering your workouts a bit, go longer and slower, faster and shorter...fast slow intervals. sometimes our bodies get used to our routines, and we have our plateaus!

  • Have you ever thought about nutritional cleansing? I lost and kept off 18 lbs with nutritional cleansing. Message me if you want more info.
