so glad i found this!! i had mine out in 2004 and just thought i gained weight at first. I always been 105 -110. Now i look 5 months pregnant. skinny everywhere else but this big fat stomach. Not even fat, but sticking out and hard. just thought i was eatign too much even though i dont. i tried losing wieght, excerising, and detoxing. everywhere i lose weight but my stomach! i was talking to a friend who said she had the same bloatingness. so i looked it up and it seems like it is common. I went on a diet (prior to reading this) with limited red meat and it seems to be going down (the bloatness).
