Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Have you had something to drink?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

yes i was drinking a little while walking and indrank diet iced tea

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
So after walking and getting hot and sweaty you're now worried because you feel tired?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

took my bp its 116/76hr 66. i am worried that i will have arrythmia. it was verybhotnand i chose the wrong time to do it. i zm under so much pressure to lose weight. can u also telle i weight now 171 but all my family tells me i look no more then 150 i do have a lot of loose skin.so they tell me i lose inches or something

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry for the delay. The pressure and pulse are just fine. I'm not sure what you were saying about the weight thing?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

i said i am under alot of pressure to lose weight. so need ur explanation to this. i weigh now 171.my aunt told me i dont look no more then 150 she said imight me losing inches more . i also have zlot of loose skin. and one moreu dont think i can have arrythmia from walking in the heat

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
No you don't have an arrhythmia. Are you losing inches say in your waistline?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

i have loose skin on my arms stomach, when i wear jeans its very loose around waist and thighs

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
OK--she meant that you might be gaining some muscle which is more dense than fat and so weighs more than fat and you lose inches without losing much weight so that's a good sign
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

sorry explain again i didnt understand. what i meant is my arms and stomach had lots of fat now when i pick my arms there is loose skin same on a stomach

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Well, as you lose weight you can get extra loose skin in those areas but if you're losing inches around the waist that's a good sign
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

ok can u explain to me . what is the difference between losing inches and weight. and why for me this process goes like this and for my husband its losing weight

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Well, first off how much weight have you lost since you started the walking?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

i am sorry something was wrong with ipad. well i was 182now 171

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

doc also while was here in ny went off my diet a little and now feel bloated not being able to burp. and doc i dont know also my back is killing me

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
We've talked about your back many times before. You need x-rays and and MRI of your back and you may need some therapy with a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabiltation MD specialist for that, but that isn't too bad and certainly isn't a serious, deadly problem. We've also talked about your stomach and the burping and I've told you time an again to try the Prilosec. Losing inches means just that--your waistline inches drops when you lose weight.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

ok so what do i do with exess skin

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
That takes time and some exercises to build up the muscles in your arms and tummy but the skin will shrink some after a while.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
