Hi I’m Kathy and at 41 I had a hysterectomy in December of 2008. I am now on hormone replacement therapy pills called Enjuvia. I have gained, in the last year, about 14 lbs.

I work out SIX times a week, for at least an hour, and have been doing this for over 2 months, and have only lost about 5 lbs. total.

I also carry an extra “pooch” in my lower abdomen that I cannot get rid of. It seems my shorts from last summer will NEVER feel comfortable again, and pants and shorts are not fitting just because of that pooch that I did not have as much of before the surgery.

I want to lose 30 lbs but I am more discouraged by the day.

I hired a trainer at the gym, so I am hoping it helps. Does anyone have a similar story? I’d love to hear.


Answer from Rumi

Hi Kathy, thank you for sharing with us your story.

Many people think that exercises burn fat and you know from your experience how much you can burn by exercising.

Significant weight loss results can be achieved only with a diet plan – you need to eat only foods that promote weight loss and to control your portions.

Start following one of my diet plans, continue exercising and you should lose 2 pounds after the first week.

It is good you hire a trainer, you workouts will be more effective.

BUT remember that without a diet you can’t lose weight.

All the best,
