I would like to knw is anyone else also having this problem? I went back to my dr on May 6 to see if I had lost any weight and none . I 36 f 4 ft 11 in my weight currently is 135 lbs.. I have never had a weight problems had three kids lost all the weight after them went back to my normal 108 lbs and a size 7/8. Ruled everything medical out not pregnant , rhyroid fine , diabetes fine . I have had some gastro issues for the past two years I could not do number 2 at all I would go at least 4 or 5 mnths without. Bowel movement then I would get do full I would randomly have thee attacks where I violently throw up get nausea and violent diarrhea I would be so dehydrated tht I would have to go get fluids from the hospital . So I guess with holding that much toxic stool for that long could contribute to tht I have a extra long colon and it would get to a certain point where it couldn't pass thru. I found a great dr in December tht help me resolve the issue I'm takin linzess 290 2x day before I eat and amitiza 8 mg 3 times a day after I eat. I was also without a car for two years from 2012 march til 2014 march and hubby worked late so I was home 24/7 til Saturday and Sunday so was depressed from the I'm a on the go person and I had my 3 yr old at home also. I'm sure the sitting hm contributed a lot to it. The only other two times I was 135 lbs when I was 9 mnths pregnant with both kids my daughter is 5 nw. So technicall I feel the physical symptoms as if I was pregnant my gastro issue is slowly geting regular it seems to swell up at my waist under my boob line so it makes my stomach swell up and out . I have started walking the track two times a day and eating lean cuisines and switched to come zero recently so I'm slowly trying to get a schedule down . Has anyone tried the garcinia cambogia diet yet it's all over the internet not sure how it's diffrent from belviq . Anyway thts my story would welcome comments or suggestions thanks Laura
The Belviq doesn't seem to be working. There are several other options and I suggest you ask your Dr. for a change in weight loss medicine, hopefully from a different chemical family. I've never been on any of the newer weight loss drugs. I have tried garcinia c. and, at 1st, had no results. Now I'm taking it at least 2 times a day and 2 pills because I have lots to lose. I'm now losing weight, but I'm also using that trick where you switch different foods around in your daily eating and the body gets confused plus substituting less calorie foods for higher calories and consuming more protein per Dr. If I eat the same things as always, the weight doesn't come off.
It's a little too soon to credit the garcinia, but here's a contact number should you want to try. 800.317.4070. If this company will accept you, they initially bill at $80+ per 1 bottle that lasts a month. But every time I talk to them about what to do to make it work, they slash the price about $20+. I don't ask, they just do it. I'm now at only $21.87/bottle. Not bad if you want garcinia. Best of luck to you.
