I have resigned myself to try and accept my belly pooch and try to wear her proudly. I've had mine just about all my life actually. Some times it's bigger, some times smaller, but always there! LOL I am generally just having a battle to keep my weight below 160. I started that before my surgery. Fortunately, so far, knock on wood, I haven't gotten back up there but I'm close enough..this week I'm at 155....

My Dr lowered my HRT dose. I've been taking it now for two years,I'm ready to get off the pill and go all natural?I feel that the HRT pill is the reason for the weight gain and bloating that I'm having, My stomach seams to be a small pooch in the mornin then by the end of the day swells, I also eat activia daily.When my stomach pooches out my sides also fill larger it's almost as if I just blew up a balloon and just want to pop it. sorry if I'm going on and on. I'm just having ahard time with this still, Husband tries to understand, I went from a sive 8 then 12 then 14, and its all around the middle, I won't go into being gassy(hehe) oh well such as life, I should be thank-full ,could be worse. thanks my friends for putting up with alittle venting. sunnyday2006
