(Cross-post from Weighty matters)

I have been having some minor problems with loss of balance, which I attribute to obesity. I am not dizzy or lightheaded. I do find that I feel off balance every once in a while and have to "catch" my balance. I have not fallen or passed out.

I think it is because I am obese, and do not have much muscle strength (secondary to not exercising for a very long time). I looked up a couple of articles on the internet and it seems to be a fairly common problem, but I have never heard of anyone complain about it. Usually they complain about lack of energy, achey joints, back pain, depression.....but not balance problems.

Does anyone else have a problem with this, or have you in the past?

Thanks.
Jen
