Yo-yo dieters... don't give up.

A new study from The Cancer Research Center in Seattle looked at more than 400 overweight, post-menopausal women with a history of dieting.

They were still able to drop significant weight with diet and exercise.

It is encouraging news for people who've been told "yo-yo dieting" would damage their metabolism and make weight loss next to impossible.
