I'm 45 years old and had an hysterectomy in 2008. I've struggled with weight my whole life. In 2007 I reached my highest weight recorded; 244 lbs. After my hysterectomy my weight slowly came down. I've been on Slim Fast, Curves and done HCG drops and last year I finally got down to 163 lbs. I swore I would never get back to where I was, but now i'm at 180 lbs again and just cannot figure out why. Can some please help?
