Hi,I wanted to tell you not to give up on yourself. I do not no much about the facial hair issue, does sound like it could be hormone related ( one of the joys of being a women). Let the doctors rule out what they can if you presently have issurance. I have battled my weight most of my life also, and watched my mom all her life she has been over 400 many times. I,m 46 and now about 250's.Have been dealing with severe fibro. pain for several years, tho just diagnosed about 4 months ago. I have used aspartame since I was 16 someone told me it might be making me sicker. So I stopped 3 months or so ago, I have stopped taking it in in anything, drinks, yogurts, gum ect...only sugar now. I am now almost pain free have more energy. I also, invested in a pair of new shoes skechers shape ups, pricey but, worth it. I am actually started to gain definition, and my whole body feels stronger. I was already on my feet alot and walked alot at my job. After seeing my sister-in-law who has stage 2 kidney disease, lower her blood pressure so much , by cutting salt out of her diet, I also tried that. Together its all working. Just keep trying work with what you can, if you can't fianacally do something now. Use what you have. Remember you are worth the investment.
