    I have gained a ton of weight, too, about 30 pounds in a year. I never
    was very skinny, so this has really done a number on my self-esteem
    and my wardrobe. I joined a weight loss group at a local hospital,
    but the doctor in charge said it would be very hard for me to lose
    weight, and he was right. I haven’t. My regular doctor, who was obese
    himself, just shrugged it off as no big deal, which was very frustrating.
    It is a big deal. I don’t know what advice to offer, but I’m glad to
    hear it’s not just me.
