I'm an Ob-Gyn. Many women (rightly or wrongly) come to me for their only care. I am a specialist, but we'll let that one point slide for now.
I'm like my patients. Getting older, a pound or two heavier each year. I can chart it. It's depressing.
So what do I tell my patients : Exercise. Eat right. Do the preventative stuff.
I decided to start walking the walk (so to speak, it's more like biking the bike, but you get the picture). I've even started lifting weights.
And I'm down a few pounds. My arms look a little bit better, more toned.
Hope it helps.
