I'm in my early 40's and need to lose 10 to 15 pounds but had to stop exercising due to shortness of breath

Hi CureGT,

I recommend contacting your doctor's office via phone and speaking with your doctor or their nurse to determine if they want to see you ASAP or get you scheduled for an appointment.

All the best,
