In need of some advice!!
Thursday, June 29, 2017
Hi ya'll.. well it's been almost a year since I have been on here. Needless to say, I have fallen off the weight loss wagon, in fact.. the wagon done run me over! LOL..
Here is my problem: I can not eat Avocados, Bananas, Almonds, Broccoli, & a few other choice items.. My belly swells up & I seriously look 8 months pregnant. Normally, I just have a spare tire around my middle (I blame the beer for that). What's the scoop? Why does my belly do this? I have had my gallbladder & stomach checked twice.. no issues there.. no ulcers.. I am even trying essential oils! Sometimes they work to reduce the bloat, sometimes they don't.. any thoughts??
**A little back story, I was at 245lbs at my highest. I decided I was done with that business so I went very low carb, walking on lunch every day & going to the gym twice a week. I did great, lost 65 lbs over 2 years.. then.. divorce happened, which for me was a good thing.. however, I met someone new & boy howdy do we eat! we love to cook & go out & drink beer & what not..
**Present time.. I have gained 30 lbs in the last 2 1/2 years. steadily going up. I was put on Phentermine last summer & it worked, for a little while. then I guess my body got used to it & BAM.. weight came back with a vengeance.
