Re: [IP] Big Weight Problems



I guessed I missed the part where Sarah was trying for a 3-4? I hope that's
not the case. I am also overweight but not obese-I believe my extra weight
is part of my depression problem.  I have recently started to exercise and
can't believe how good I feel-I'm trimming down and have hopes of loosing 20
lbs.  I do not consider myself fat I do consider myself slower and more
depressesd due to the extra weight.  For years my endo has told me not to
loose weight because of my flexuating bs levels I have since decided that
I'm entitled to live my life the way I choose and have taken back some of
the control which gives me the best bs levels I've had in a long time.
