Hey James, It really sucks that doctors sit there and tell you that you need to lose weight (which I'm sure you already knew) but then they don't do anything to help. What you haven't realized is that ... you lost 10 lbs. That's GREAT!!!! You CAN lose the weight!! Think about everything you eat, everything you do (moving/exercising) everyday. Write it down.
