Hi group, My name is Paige and I am a 29 year old, black female. I have been overweight/obese most of my life. I also suffer from fibroid tumors. I have had a total of 6 surgeries as a result of my fibroids. I have read several articles that show the link between obesity and fibroids due to the excess estrogen levels. I was tumor free for 2 years when I lost a total of 40lbs. I want to get back to that place again and even lose more weight this time. I want to be able to bear my own child one day so losing the weight is not just an option for me it is a necessity and I need to hear your stories of encouragement to keep me motivated to reach my goals and improve my overall health.November 4, 2012 - 6:23pm
