Get your groove back?

A group at Brown University found that 60% of women seeking bariatric (weight loss surgery) reported sexual dysfunction. Perhaps not surprisingly, this increased with age and menopause.

After the weight loss that followed surgery, the researchers then found that of the sexual active women (average age 43 yo) who previously had dysfunction, 70% had improvement in this area, similar to normal weight women.

I was fortunate enough to avoid surgery at this time; but I had strongly considered it before embarking on this course.  Losing 120 lbs has certainly resulted in improvements in my life.

We reported recently on some of the challenges that obese men and women have with sex.  Maybe this can motivate us!
