I have had the same problem. I gained a total of 40 pounds since 2000. I have finally found a nutritional advisor who is working with me and I've had a lot of success. Basically she put me on lean meats, veggies, fruit, fish oil, some amino acids, and I imediately dropped 6 pounds. It's continue to come off now and physically I feel so much better.
That's just what worked for me and it's the first time since 2000 that I've been able to LOSE anything. I would normally gain 3-4 per week.
Wishing you the best

I can relate too... I also went up 4 sizes and couldn't lose a pound... until I got salmonella food poisoning from eggs I was served at a restaurant. In less than 5 days, 18 pounds came off in nothing flat. However...I wouldn't recommend that method . Like you, Sheryl... I sure don't recognize the person I see in the mirror, anymore. I've been trying different hair styles and lengths, but it doesn't seem to "help" me in the "look better" deptartment... any ideas to help?
