She has gained an enormous amount of weight. Triumph HCG drops have not been shown to interfere with the birth control pills. Wow she lost a lot of weight on the way to Howard University today…. Maintaining a healthy weight can help you appear youthful as you pass age The VP weight is an indicator of the androgenic effect, while the LA weight is an indicator of the anabolic effect. I started back hitting the gym because that cortisol was making my ass big and not in a good way. Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken.
And then when it was done, the biopsy on my cervix showed cancer, that no test showed and we ran a laundry list of them for 6 months So it was worth it!! Naw, they have authentic franch bread here…I am currently addicted….. And I get extra cinnamon and two sausage patties and bacon…I add strawberries to convince myself it is healthy! Omg we are here. And it came on so FAST. The after smoking gain. My doc was laughing at me.
He was like I have folks come in here damn near daily about weight loss. You done called 3 times about an appointment to discuss weight gain. No the stopping smoking…and then on prednisone for my eczema and asthma lol.? But probably does what you said. I eat 6 times a day when on prednisone. Be so so hungry. That was what I eventually said, but I had that whole….. After a while, I was like look take that thing and call me Barry…. Damn back to school chit!
Yes my mom is on em…says she wakes up in the middle of the night hungry. Gotta get up and eat lol. Awww, it ends one day and you get to keep all your money to yourself……wait…. My kids are happier because now the smell irks me so I feel their pain. Even though I never smoked in front of them that smell travels. I was going to say Lies!!
Now I need to find reasonably priced Odell Beckham Jr shirt. My dad was a smoker most of his life. Benson Hedges was his staple for years then he turned to Newports. You quit cold turkey?
My grandma quit after they told her she had copd least we think she did…she smelled better lol. He had the nerve to ask for his allowance this morning.
My daughters have benefited from those mistakes. Welp, I have some veterans on my timeline that are saying he is a disgrace. Sadly, some in my family….
In one video he snapped on Boomer Esaison about his commentary and asked him, how did he know what it was like to ride along in the back of a police car and talked about how when he was pulled over and surrounded by 8 officers, the only thing that helped him was that one of the officers recognized him….
Then on the response to Cam he said Cam would have put Fred Astaire, Michael Jackson and MC Hammer to shame all at the same time the way he moonwalked around those comments. Saw this at the market yesterday. Shook my head at the obvious pixel manipulation. Just saw pics of them on vacation a week ago.
So she gained near about lbs. The First Lady brushes these haters off her shoulders! I rediscovered my love of the gym, not cardio, but the machines for strength training.
Your opinion is valued here. Had no clue it focused on the dating aspect of them…so thanks, again. If Michelle Obama has gained 95 lbs this year I guess she gained 25 lbs and lost 22 about fives times this year. So she gained 95 and lost 85 lbs. Leaving her with a 10 pound net gain. No, look at the video of her from 2 days ago at Howard U. Food, menopause, and a probably a bit of stress. She is about to be out of the lime light, so she can relax more. She still looks great. And fat-shame everyone else.
And tell everyone how they should eat. Perhaps you should look at the WIC list, brown nasty tortillas, brown nasty bread, etc. She kinda deserves all of this, for that bs. What people are mad about with her is the bs.
The WIC bs where people have brown cardboard tasting tortillas on the list,. Getting info from the Enquirer is like getting it from Donald Trump lying behind. Unless the current events, shows and other things this lady has been on has some lag time, they need to cut it.
I just saw her last week returning home from Hawaii and she did not have one extra pound on her. If this is what you are putting out there maybe you should fine a different way to make a living, and really the Enquire? She was just on snapchat a month ago looking healthy and vibrant. They altered this image. She fell in love with trying to be glamorous. Getting up at 4 am just to exercise, the hair pieces, the designer dresses. As a Black female lawyer, she did nothing to substantial help Black females in America….
At least the Bush women made educational strides. Michelle took sodas out of schools and forced disgusting lunches down the throat of our children. Not a fan…sorry…not sorry.
Well, she was at Howard university my alma mater!!! Michelle Obama is such a beautiful, and talented women. When will they shut down the National Enquirer, they are always being sued, for their lies. I do understand that I am contributing to the success of this blog. I also understand that I have a right just like anyone else to comment on anything that I want to comment on as well as to visit any other blog that I choose to. So before you try and put me in my place, read me the riot act, throw shade or any other term for telling me off, you really need to choose your battles.
Because I can do this all day everyday. We can agree to disagree, we can be civil to one another or we can get this party started you decide. Also the main reason that I said what I said is not only was it a lie but it was very disrespectful to who in my opinion is a beautiful, positive, educated, successful woman. She is and who knows may only be the only woman of color as the first lady of the United States of America and I feel that she deserves better than lies.
Being a black woman myself I am very proud of her and any black woman who carries herself as a lady and I celebrate all of our successes, period. We have enough to deal with within this one sided society because as I am sure you already know the scales are definitely not weighed evenly. I saw her today and this is total BS. Have you seen how SR look in real life? No wonder why she hates blacks. She thinks anyone that resembles her is helpless and hopeless.
Affordable Health Care Option premiums will solve the problem. Pay more, less food to buy! You can take that to the bank….. How low can one go? Weight gain or not First Lady Michelle is ready to get out of that haunted house. I doubt if she would even spït your way, so blowing you is completely out of the question. I was told that the reason no one has seen mochelle obama recently is that she is now pushing or so. Is any or all of this true??
How about she cannot turn down all that free food. The picture of her posterior looks like she is hiding a table under her dress. Get Melania in there quick! First she tries to starve the kids at school now take a look at this. Put him next to Hillary, what a pair! On a 6 ft tall person it could be,ykwim? At that height it may may you look a bit thicker. Without the fake eye lash, white girl weave, Michelle Obama is homely. Just look at her earlier photos before tax payers foot the bill for her makeover.
The only talent MO has demonstrated thus far as 1st lady is dancing and rapping meaning she plays right into the stereotype of a black ghetto woman. Telling other people what to feed their kids does not require talent. She is actually an accomplished attorney, and a Ivy League University, she has raised some beautiful smart young ladies, and will probably be a Senator one day. What are you doing? She has gained a shocking amount of weight. Her arms are huge and are no longer toned. I thought her campaign was about overeating?
Nope she has gained a ton of weight. Toned arms are gone. She outweighs her husband for sure. Wonder if Barack is having an affair? Was skinny all my life. Even after 2 pregnancies. Only gained 15 lbs while pregnant. Years passed and then menopause arrived. Started taking estrogen and hello weight gain! Now I am considered Obese. We should be lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. Society does that enough. She needs to start eating those school lunches she is always promoting, she will lose weight fast.
Stay away from carbonated beverages. If you are that far removed from reality that you cannot see that we as a society are at the end and the truth, there is no hope for you.
Try reading The Prophet Ezekial to understand your fate. The movement to push healthy eating, started way before Michell Obama. The Unidied School District in CA, started a program first, and the standards were pushed even more by the current administration. Having worked as a teacher I see the good, and not so good with the program. These people are Human like the rest of us. You go Michelle and enjoy every bite you are eating and when the time is right you can diet. Someone please tell me what stress that she has in her life.
Too much free time? Please disregard my previous comments, because that was wrong of me to speak in speak in a negative manner about Mrs. They say the fatter you are the smaller your penis looks. I see why there is a marriage crisis here. She has gained weight, but some of the coverage of it has been disrespectful. Perhaps she has a bit of CARB syndrome: We just saw the First Lady a few weeks ago, fine as ever, at the democratic convention.
You racist whitiies just wish it were true!! That check must have been real nice from the Donald Dump campaign. Yeah the racists and the cooning niglets trying to spread this trash. Sandra the way you praise some black women but down others. Auntie did you really just use this from the Enquirer???? Michelle would not do that! My 4 day weekend about to be popping in 20 minutes? Lack of fish or too much bad fish????? LOL eating that Tilapia. Sandra, are you working for someone? Donald Trump maybe because it looks that way.
Store bought at that? I started to say Croaker, but nobody would know what that is. I wish they were having another child. But not 95 lbs. The chairman of the Federal Reserve may have more impact than the president on the economy. What about Drake and Rihanna? She was just looking fit a few weeks ago… So I vote water retention …. Mind you I just seen pics of her and Nick cannon today at a school with none of this bs Smfh.
This must be the last post for today….. Michelle Obama is fine, classy, and age appropriate. Very telling and downright disgusting. Anything to try n tear them down….
Lol you West Indian? No, the first time I went fishing on a boat as a kid, we caught Atlantic Croaker. I was thinking why TF they sound like frogs? That number is inflated just a smidgen. What was his response? You have to move. We only have 5 or 6 black people here in the neighborhood anyway, etc.
Your source is the Enquirer…mmmmh?? Lawd have mercy ….. Oh I hear you. I know all about Croaker. I saw that mess. He a the little blind football boy must be friends. They had to hold his thug ass down to take his mug shot. Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch. Michelle is a brickhouse. Cut arms and curves for days. She got her lashes on and looks great! You sound like my mom. They are ALL the same. Trapped in the muthafin closet…LLS. Has anyone caught their movie Southside with You?
Watch she will not be arrested…. Black folks keepin it real?? HU School of Business??? Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma. Menopause…you either lose or gain…. Did u ever watch Wentworth season 4? I was wondering how u felt about the finale. Well thanks to the national enquirer we know not to believe this nonsense. Still beautiful, classy a day graceful. Come on now…the National Enquirer. It made its money back. The enquirer as a source…….
Why stake does the owner of this blog have in the perpetual tearing down of black women? My next dog will definitely be a husky. His meat was very deep. Is this my stank-stank? Minez barely pierced the rim??? I just spoke to you down yonder….. I would never run from you. It looks like they blew her up! I wish others would come to their senses too. This is so fraud LOL.
The nicotine contained in cigarette smoke is itself an addictive psychoactive substance. Furthermore, the fact that the rates of cigarette smoking tend to be higher in the demographic of alcohol and substance abusers makes its discussion here particularly germane.
Smoking is a harmful habit that reduces blood circulation to vital organs, increases the risk of developing heart disease, and speeds up the progression of heart disease in people who already have it .
Individuals who smoke heavily may also begin to lose their appetite due to heightened nicotine cravings . This, however, is not healthy weight loss as a person may simply skip one or more meals and decide to smoke instead. Although the individual is losing weight, the body is not being provided with an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals and this often results in unexpected health problems.
Some individuals actually gain weight after they begin smoking because they become more sedentary while smoking, eat higher calorie foods and exercise less . A serious problem that often occurs when an individual stops smoking is rapid weight gain, but this appears to be mostly associated with substituting food for smoking, especially when nicotine cravings begin . The prospect of weight gain frequently discourages people from quitting, but those who do not quit risk suffering from even more serious conditions such as [13, 16]:.
To be clear, the risks associated with smoking far outweigh the possible weight gain that may occur if an individual quits smoking. Furthermore, with support and discipline many people have successfully quit smoking without experiencing significant weight gain.
Avoiding smoking altogether is one of the best ways to prevent unhealthy weight loss or gain. Recreational, illicit, and prescription medication all influence various mental processes. Certain drugs may cause temporary cognitive impairments after taking just a single dose. If this happens a person may forget to eat properly, begin to lose weight and develop dangerously low blood sugar.
Individuals who begin to abuse drugs may eventually suffer from permanent impairments in brain activity as well as physical changes that lead to dramatic weight loss and poor health. Depressants refer to substances that can slow normal processes in the body and reduce physical activity by altering the manner in which the brain sends and receives signals.
Alcohol, marijuana cannabis and opiates such as morphine, codeine, heroin, methadone, hydrocodone e. Lortab, Norco and oxycodone e. OxyContin are all categorized here as depressants. Codeine, morphine, methadone, Hydrocodone and OxyContin are all opiates that can be prescribed by a physician to treat intense pain or certain painful conditions e.
Methadone is even prescribed for some people who are addicted to heroin in order to help them overcome their opiate dependence or addiction . If the person abruptly stops taking the opiate, serious withdrawal symptoms may be experienced. To mitigate this uncomfortable period of withdrawal, people frequently undergo medically supervised detoxification as an initial step of substance abuse treatment.
Although opiates are commonly prescribed to treat pain, their use can quickly translate to misuse due to the sense of euphoria that people tend to experience after taking this type of drug. It is this feeling of euphoria that generally leads to opiate dependence and addiction in many people . To varying degrees, the narcotic analgesics in the opiate class can cause side effects that include:.
Side effects such as these can lead to a decrease in appetite, slowed digestion and weight loss, over time. In addition, opiate dependence and, especially, addiction can often result in dramatic weight loss when people begin to engage in drug seeking behavior more often than eating properly.
Heroin is a particularly dangerous opiate that is highly addictive. It is usually purchased on the street as opposed to abused prescription opiates. Similar to other drugs in this class, its users may display erratic drug seeking behavior, altered eating habits and weight loss if it is taken regularly . Heroin abusers may experience a brief period of euphoria that is followed by confusion and drowsiness. Long-term opiate abuse also leads to extensive organ damage and disease, which is typically associated with weight loss.
Marijuana, as a recreational drug, is among the most commonly used depressants by adolescents . Excessive marijuana use alters mental processes such as memory and thinking. Most people experience short-term memory problems that may become permanent if a prolonged period of drug abuse starts.
Memory problems may result in dietary changes and weight loss. However, a number of individuals who take marijuana experience a subjective increase in appetite that is frequently referred to as the munchies.
This may cause overeating and weight gain. Concentration, hand and eye coordination and reasoning problems may also develop due to marijuana use and this may make it difficult for people to maintain a healthy diet. Long-term problems that may arise from marijuana use include depression and organ damage, especially if marijuana is taken with alcohol. These types of health problems are often associated with fluctuations in weight.
Drugs with stimulant effects — caffeine, ecstasy MDMA , cocaine and methamphetamines e. Stimulants can alter certain mental processes, with people often failing to recognize the homeostatic urges of hunger or dehydration.
When stimulants are abused, this effect could result in weight loss and other, more lethal health consequences. Ecstasy is a commonly taken illicit drug that is typically sold on the streets. A serious problem that is associated with the purchase of ecstasy involves not knowing whether the drug is made up of a pure product or a combination of other harmful substances. Commonly reported adulterant substances include amphetamine, ephedrine and over-the-counter cold remedies such as pseudoephedrine and dextromethorphan DXM.
Taking just one dose of ecstasy can cause harmful side effects such as :. The long-term abuse of ecstasy may result in serious muscle tissue damage and the release of muscle enzymes into the blood. These large proteins can deposit in the kidneys, leading to damage or overt renal failure. Stimulants such as ecstasy often make people feel as if they have high levels of energy and this may prevent them from realizing that they are hungry or have not been drinking enough liquids.
Long-term use may result in weight loss. The relatively long acting effects of ecstasy can elevate body temperature, and an accompanying state of dehydration can become quite serious, if not fatal.
As with other psychoactive drugs, changes in mental processes can a host of negative influences on a healthy body weight, especially abused for long periods of time. Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant that increases blood pressure, suppresses the appetite and can cause regular users to eat fewer balanced meals than those who do not use cocaine . Cocaine abuse also inhibits the ability to gauge the amount of fatty foods that are being eaten when feelings of hunger become dire .
Side effects such as these lead to irregular eating patterns and weight loss. Drug seeking behavior, which commonly occurs due to cocaine abuse, can also reduce the appetite thereby causing individuals to forget to eat properly and eventually begin to lose weight. The cessation of prolonged cocaine use leads to an increase in appetite and subsequent weight gain in some individuals.
Methamphetamines speed, crystal meth, meth share a number of effect on the mind and body with ecstasy, especially in regard to decreases in appetite and memory function. Of note, long term abuse of amphetamines may cause a syndrome of depression as well. Each of these side effects may result in unhealthy eating habits, weight loss and, secondarily to depression, even weight gain over time.
Similar to cocaine cessation, the cessation of methamphetamines after a prolonged period of abuse has, in some cases, lead to a rebound appetite increase with resultant weight gain. Hallucinogens dramatically alter the mind and the senses by causing people to experience a variety of sensory hallucinations — often seeing distorted images or objects that are not really there. These types of hallucinations often occur in conjunction with markedly abnormal behavior, anxiety attacks and paranoia.
PCP, LSD, ketamine and magic mushrooms all have the potential to elicit hallucinations or powerful dissociative experiences. People who take large amounts of ecstasy or marijuana may also report episodes of hallucination.
Hallucinogens can affect emotions, concentration, memory and thinking ability, as well as cause distorted vision and hearing. Drowsiness, sweating, nausea, vomiting and irregular breathing may also occur . This array of issues, particularly in those who abuse them long-term, can lead to loss of appetite and diminished nutrition and, over time, contribute to unhealthy weight loss. People who begin to take drugs regularly or experiment with drugs may begin to mix them or combine them with alcohol.
Mixing drugs with other drugs or alcohol compounds the individual risks inherent to each substance — risks like breathing problems, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, syncope fainting , abnormal or dangerous behavior and ultimately, the risk of overdosing or dying. Overall, drug abuse alters the mind and body in ways that make it almost impossible to maintain a healthy diet. Poor nutrition leads to serious health problems, and many diseases that may develop secondarily due to drug abuse also have associated weight changes.
Dramatic weight loss due to substance abuse increases the risk of suffering from low blood sugar, heart arrhythmias, electrolyte and mineral imbalances, gallstones and alterations in blood pressure. Health problems such as these can become long-term and life-threatening. Dangerously low blood sugar levels may lead to dizziness, confusion, tremors, trouble speaking or coma, while untreated heart arrhythmias may result in death. If the heart begins to beat too rapidly, a side effect of certain stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamines, the heart may go into sudden cardiac arrest.
Even if an individual is resuscitated, major organs may become seriously damaged due to cardiac arrest . Losing significant amounts of weight may also result in unhealthy overeating to circumvent feelings of hunger or distress regarding the weight loss.
Repeated starvation, which may result due to drug seeking behavior and other changes in mental processes that often occur concurrently with substance abuse, leads to the release of neurotransmitters that allow people to eat well beyond the satiation point by overriding their feelings of hunger.
High blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, kidney disease, respiratory problems, cancer and osteoarthritis are among the many long-term health problems that may develop due to weight gain that is concurrent with substance abuse .
In general, the abuse of recreational, illicit, and prescription drugs can all result in similarly disastrous long-term effects on health — with dramatic vacillations in body weight, both up and down. Although various types of effective treatments have been established for substance abuse, it remains one of the leading causes of emergency room visits and death. This, in part, appears to be because people tend to avoid seeking treatment for at least 10 years after their substance abuse has started .
Due to this mismatch between available treatment, and the people who are in desperate need of it, substance abuse continues to be a major public health issue. In addition to causing harmful fluctuations in weight, substance abuse can lead to multiple major organ damage, especially to the kidneys and heart .
People who have health problems such as arthritis or diabetes tend to worsen their symptoms and even speed up the progression of their condition through drug abuse, with any associated weight changes potentially compounding the damage done.
While not an exhaustive list, a withdrawal syndrome can encompass: Even relatively mild symptoms such as these can make it quite difficult for people to overcome their substance abuse without the guidance of medical and treatment professionals.
On a more serious end of the spectrum, acute alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal can result in dangerous seizures and even death. General Info learn about drugs. Near Me Browse by state.
