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.
