    Diet Systems failures and the hardest things to keep a thinning waist line
    jcsiii71 posted:
    I am 42 years old and I have had open heart surgery at the age of 39 which included 6 bypasses all at once. I have Diabetes, Hypertension, 2 compression fractures in my back and am about 65 pounds over weight. Because of my disabilities (my back and pain meds) I have a very slow metabolism which is just compounding and destroying my hope of loosing weight. I have tried just about everything that I can do without jeopardizing my health anymore. I have stumbled across a website that deals with issues like mine that are not your typical dieters. Check out this site and the information on it. I can personally account for its ability to work for anyone with or without a disability. All the information is free and worth 5 minutes. The site address is . The ideas on there have actually helped me loose 12 pounds in almost a month. Foe me that is nothing short of a miracle. I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the site and if the articles are helpful. Please leave me a response as to your thoughts on the ideas that are on the site. Also, if you have any advise on any websites for people who are disabled and limited as far as exercise is concerned please leave me a reply so I can look it up. Thank you.
