I saw a woman in the office yesterday who has been struggling with major life stress, and, as a result, has been gaining weight over the past few years since her surgery. She wanted to come see me years ago, but was embarrassed by her weight gain. Please, do not be embarrassed to come see me. We are all in this fight together, and my Team has some great techniques to help folks get back on track. Stress causes increases in cortisol, which can lead to weight gain. Combined with time constraints limiting access to exercise, and stress eating, weight can begin to creep back. Come see me so we can help each other, and let’s get healthy together!
