I went to the doctor recently because psoriasis runs in my family and I wanted to get treated for it. I am lucky as it is on just a small portion on my back and on my head. My mother and sister are COVERED by it. The doctor told me it would go away if I lost weight.
My mom and sister are both average weight. I cannot believe how many times I have decided NOT to go see someone for an ailment or even a cold. Because I know NO MATTER what I go in for it will result in a LOST weight debate.
