I am 36 and I just gave birth to my fifth child. In the last five years because of the pregnancies I gained a lot of weight. I can barely take care of my kids because I find it hard to move. I`ve seen a doctor and he said it may be an eating disorder. However, I need to lose weight. What should I do to recover the body shape I had at 20?
I learn about diets and fitness on Project Weight Loss.

Five kids? Make time for yourself and maybe then things will be as you want them. Take up a diet and try running alongside with your kids.

Ok that's a heck of a lot harder than my situation, I thought it was hard to eat right and fit in some exercise uninterupted w/ 3 kids. I can only imagine w/ 5 it must be that much harder. Well, try to start eating much much much more veggies and fruits and try to cut out all those simple carbs like cookies, cakes, flour breads....I know it sounds hard but just that alone will help a great deal. And if you over eat at least you know veggies and fruits won't hurt your diet like chips and other stuff. You can totally do this having 5 kids is one of the most hardest things a woman can do, to lose weight and get healthy should be walk in the park for you.....YOU CAN DO IT!* Good luck i'm sure you'll do well.*

Walking in place
there is working out, and there is exercise. Walking is only one piece of a complete workout.

It does make sense, but it doesn't mean you should EAT those calories!

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
