About Me: Female, 47, Jacksonville, FL, member since May 2009
I'm over 150 lbs overweight. I have hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's Disease, I think it's called - though sometimes I feel like it should be Quasimoto's disease....lol!!!). I want to lose weight, but I've gotten so huge that walking is even painful. I'm experience back,
[More] foot, ankle and knee pain due to my weight issues. I REALLY don't want the surgery because I think everyone I've ever seen who get's it looks like they've melted....and it just isn't a better look. Wish they still sold Max Alert at the convenient store like in the 80's. That was some powerful stuff and worked for me in so many ways (ephedrine stacker w/caffeine). And nope, no Diabetes or High Blood pressure...not yet anyway.
