I'm a 48yo married mom of three.

I gained this weight because of medicines/steroids used to treat severe and long-lasting migraines (often well over a week!) -- putting on about 70# when all was said and done!

The weight went on quickly, but it's going to come off slowly, unfortunately -- somehow that just doesn't seem fair. But such is life -- and so I'm here!!

"What you are going to read below is nothing magic or extraordinary but it is the real truth behind weight loss.ALL YOU NEED TO DO in order to understand how to lose weight IS CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE; this includes changing your diet, adding exercise to your weekly schedule and living a less stressful life. Once you get used to this way of living everything else will come naturally; gradually you will start losing weight and becoming stronger and this will make the whole process a lot easier."
