Was reading your "answers" for people with facial pain.  However, right now let me congratulate you on 40# loss!  Also appreciated your thorough responses. I too have facial pain and am seeing a Neurologist.  It's been my passenger for years. The immediate concern is being overweight after 2 knee replacements and 1 foot surgery with another planned in Aug.  At 70, gravity sure it a -----!  I'll jump on the MedHelp tracker and get started. Have a great day! Sallee

Quix,   Did you give up on your weight loss venture?  I kind of did.  Because I can't exercise much any more and am napping more, I've inched back into the early ranges of obese.  Sighhhhh.

One more thing:  I went to a dietitian who gave me some guidelines to live by:
1.  Write down everything you eat:  Calories/fiber and portion size.
2.  Include 25-35 of fiber daily (this REALLY helps) - limit fruit and no fruit juice.
3.  For me the calorie limit was between 1200 and 1500 daily.
4.  Daily exercise.

There's a great little journal called "Dietminder" that I used which made record-keeping easy.  I found if you focus on getting plenty of fiber, the rest almost takes care of itself.  Always have a little protein with any carbs.  Also having spicy salsa helps satisfy.  Get "carb-smart" tortillas - so much fiber in them!!!!
I'm looking forward to welcoming you into "overweight" soon!!

Hey Quix,

Well done!!  Keep that weight curve going downward. Having only recently escaped the "obese" category myself (BMI 31), I was incensed and disappointed when I saw that my new rheumy had incorrectly stated in his notes about me that I was "obese."  I beg his pardon!!  I'm a good 9 pounds away from "obese" at this time (between BMIs 28 and 29) . Made me wonder how much of the rest of my assessment he was getting wrong. . . .  Sigh!
