... gain weight. When I started taking it I was a robust 145 pounds and stayed that way for about three years. I went on a diet about eight years ago and lost weight and now I can't seem to gain weight at all! I don't eat a lot due to cholestrol problems, low fat but I eat enough for a woman my age..66 years. I weigh 103 and I tell my Doctors I'm too thin and they tell me I'm not! Just that everyone else is fat. I wear a size three and that sometimes is too big for me. Can anyone help me, could it be that my numbers are good but I'm being over medicated?. I would so appreciate anyone here that could give me any insights or had a similar problem. Thanks, Ginger
