I have acid reflux and I'm on the acid reflux solution diet. I've been overweight most of my life. I lost 25lb when I was 17 and slowly gained it back over the course of college, plus extra. After I finally bought a car, I gained another 10lb and thats when I started to freak out about it. I tried to lose weight but couldn't commit to diet or fitness program. My acid reflux got worse, the pills weren't helping any more. I started to get scared about my health. I knew being fat was unhealthy but I was only 25 and felt so sick.
I was looking for a cook book at the library when I saw a book called the Acid Reflux Solution. It was just what I had been looking for, a low acid cook book. I was wrong though, the titular solution was actually smaller portions and cutting out chocolate and caffeine. I was desperate for a solution though and followed that book to the tee. I when from 3 serving of chocolate a day to zero. I reduced my caffeine intake by more then half. I weighed my carbs and protean at meals. And, slowly but surely, I started to feel less sick. My nighttime cough went away. The daily pain in my chest went away. and, almost as an afterthought, I lost some weight. one day, I looked in the mirror and saw my college hips, back from beyond the grave! I was happy to see them.
I need to keep reminding myself it still hasn't been that long. I still get frustrated, about my looks, about the way my close fit, about my stomach, which still hurts sometimes. I need to keep reminding myself that it will take my body a while to heal itself. My husband keeps telling me that it will heal and these things take time. and only time will tell. I am confident though now that there is hope for me and that I wont be sick forever.
I haven't fallowed a diet in a long time because I've had trouble finding a diet that fixed what was wrong with me. This one really has and I feel awful the minute I go off it. So I think I'll be able to stick with it.

How tall are you? It might be that 63 is not over weight for you. If you want to tone up I suggest finding a friend from school to be your work out buddy. When I was in high school I had a friend who had a tread mill and I used to go to her house after school and watch movies and run on the tread mill. I liked hanging out with my friend and watching movies and she liked helping me stay on track because she was really into fitness.

Extra skin
Thanks! My boy friend was just telling me I should be working more on nutrition not just cutting calories. Do I have to do cardio or can I just do Yoga and weights.
