    I assume when you were diagnosed you had surgery which included a complete hysterectomy? If this is the case, can you tell me if you were in full menopause before this surgery? If you were not already in menopause before you had the surgery, the weight gain could very well be attributed to the onslaught of menopause. It is not uncommon for women to gain weight when this change of life occurs.

    If you were already in menopause prior to the surgery, I would wonder if you have in any way curtailed your diet or excercise plan since then?

    Whatever the cause of the weight gain, I would encourage you to have a conversation with your doctor to try to understand what is going on and to plan out a safe diet and exercise plan that will work for you.

    Best of luck to you in your weight loss efforts!

    Well, it has happened.

    If your doctor says it's okay, you could start a fitness program.

    Here are some good ideas:

    1. Do something that gets your heart rate up a bit like, walking, running, biking, and swimming.

    2. Eat Whole, Organic foods like: Broccoli, Cabbage, Organic Brown Rice, Beans, Spinach, Sweet Potato, Apples, and other fruits and vegetables in their Natural State.

    3. Avoid eating corn, white bread, white rice, candy, sodas, chips, and anything else that you already know you shouldn’t be eating.

    4. Drink clean water as your beverage of choice. Avoid Fruit drinks and fruit juices (unless YOU juice them yourself)

    5. Stop smoking, drinking beer & wine, and drinking coffee.

    6. Get 8 hours of sleep each night.

    7. Hang out with people who want to be healthy.

    8. Avoid anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup.

    Tone up the muscles:

    1. Join a gym and get a trainer.

    2. If you’re short on cash, start a light stretching & yoga regimen.

    3. Do push-ups, and light dumbbell curls for the upper body.

    4. As I said above, walk, run, swim, and or bike

    5. Take an aerobics class, a yoga class, or some other fitness class.

    6. Join the local YMCA..

    7. Buy or borrow this book by Bill Pearl called GETTING STRONGER.

    In the book, he describes everything you need for a great fitness plan.

    Mental Health:

    1. Get a friend to talk to each day about your feelings.

    2. If you have some money or insurance, get a counselor to talk to.

    3. Learn how to meditate.

    4. Join a support group for the issue you’re dealing with.

    5. Ask your Higher Self (or God) for guidance.

    6. Start keeping a diary or journal about your feelings & thoughts.

    7. Write a ‘gratitude’ list every night.

    8. Do something that makes you happy each day like: listen to your favorite music, draw, paint, write, or anything creative.

    9. Do something for someone else who needs help.
