Well, the day of reckoning this morning--the first pair of pants I couldn't even squeeze shut because of the stomach sticking out so far. Does anyone know ANYTHING besides utter starvation to either get some weight off or some of this bloating. I look ridiculous because my middle keeps expanding like an innertube and the rest of me is normal in size.

Welcome to my world. I heard your pain all to well. It is a common problem with us all. I think more than anything else, it is the severe bloating that drives me the most crazy. Some days are just better and worse than others. And, I don't think I have much control over it.I have found a pair of pants that work and look great. I wear them to the office all the time. "Sauvanna Motions" They have a stetchy waste band. I swear by them! Good Luck

I lost a lot of weight out of no where after trying to lose weight for years, but it all came back despite diet and exercise. Come to find out, I have hypothyroidism. I hate the huge belly I have! I'm surprised people don't think I'm pregnant.

Well, it kind of sounds like we are stuck with the huge belly and weight gain. I am really sad about that. Even exercise doesn't help. I always look very pregnant--but at 59 no one would believe me!!
