Hi,
I've been werein a boston brace 4 2 years now.
I'm not a skinny mini person and never have been but my brace dr is a tiny little person and has told me many times i need to lose weight. :(
This makes me really sad :( :(
I have been trying really hard to lose weight but am finding it really hard
Does anyone else find it hard? or does any one have any good ways to lose weight in a boston brace?

Thanx,
BraceGal (BOSTON BRACE 2 YEARS) :( :( :p :p

My daughter got the same comments. It is because studies show that in heavier kids, bracing is not as successful. I don't think they are trying to be personal. Nonetheless, it always upset Rachel. My older daughter has had good success with losing excess weight using online weight watchers. She logs in and logs her points used 2 or 3 times a day.
