Hi...the weight that you gain

Hi...the weight that you gain may at first settle around your mid-section, and that is because your body is protecting your vital organs, and it's also preparing for another bout of starvation...just in case. It may take several months, but the weight should re-distribute and you will not notice it being as being so concentrated in one area. Take care...Jan
