: I never seem to be able to lose any wgt. I am 5' 7" and 226. I feel so bad , my bones hurt. I am an RN and I work night , have a hard time when to take meds. My regular MD just does't have time to listen to all of this, can you advise , please.

I can only tell you what I have done. As far as taking my pill I do it first thing before I take a shower and brush my teeth. I keep them in a pill box that has compartments for each day. Find a time in you day that is always the same and place your pills where you can see them.

If your Dr doesn't listen maybe you need to write down all your questions and don't let him/her go until they are answered. Or maybe you need a different physician.

Diets are a short fix. Good eating habits and exercise are the only way I know to loose weight. Your in a good position to ask a dietition/nutitionist what to eat and what to skip. The big question is have you always been big or has this been a thyroid issue. Sorry to have you ask this but as you know some people tend to be a bit larger than the recomended weights but are fit and healthy.

From what I have heard if you have a good diet and good exercise program and still cannot loose weight consult your Dr on other soultions such as persciption meds or staples. One other thought is your thyroid may be to low. You may want to be tested if you cannot loose weight with a good diet/exercise.
