    Being over weight
    NavywifeLivinglife posted:
    Being over weight is putting such a stress factor on me and it seems not to be getting better. I eat very little and when I do eat I feel bloated, full, stuff and want to blahh. I drink a lot of water and I'm to the point where I want to stay in bed and just drink water and no eatting. But then theres times where I feel I've eatten too much and I'm at a stand still and the weight won't leave me. I am about ready to do my own laposuction with the shop vac. Any suggestion!

    have you tried to focus on healthy foods from nature avoid proccessed foods . you really have to make changes that you can live with for life in order to get to a healthy weight ..
    I used to think I was hardly eating anything but I was the constant snacking I did was packing on the pounds ...
