I have gained 30 lbs since I had my GBS in 2003. I am so so upset with myself- I just can't control my appetite. My house is full of protein bars and chicken and other proteins I just gravitate to the carbs!! Has anyone tried other weight loss aids? I purchased some diet suppressants but I haven't taken any because I have bad memories from the way they made me feel... bad side effects... I am flabby and would love to get back down to 149- I was a very comfortable size 6. Originally I weighed 240 lbs when I had my GBS and got down to 129 lbs after my TT.... bounced back up to 149 where I stayed for YEARS... started gaining weight when I got pregnant with my son. I want to wear tank tops this summer but my arms are HUGE- I want to lose the weight- any suggestions for me to get jump started again??!!View Thread
