Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight during menopause fast

Avatar f tn The first thing you should do is get some simple blood tests to make sure you don't have a medical issue keeping you from losing. Those could include hypothyroidism, insulin resistance and PCOS (if you aren't past menopause). These conditions can cause weight gain and/or make losing almost impossible. The second thing you need to do is calculate the calories you actually need on a daily basis, then keep a food diary to see if you're staying within your calorie allotment.
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn I lost weight during my first pregnancy so I would say its normal :) dont worry.
Avatar n tn I pointed out to my GP that I was putting on weight, especially around my back, which I never had before, she just said well when you put on weight during the menopause, it distributes in different areas, and just left it at that. Since my doctors are reluctant to assist me I have turned to the internet to get all the info I need. I recently went to see a specialist at the gynae clinic she just said since you have put on weight, its the meno, and you just have to put up with it.

Avatar f tn My dr is on my case every time I see her because I am not losing weight fast enough for her---and of course she does not believe me that I am seriously working on this. I was planning on having a tummy tuck and some serious liposuction this March, but my BMI is too high for the dr to feel comfortable doing the surgery. I had 5 c-sections, all done vertically, so the scar is horrific looking.
Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and having a difficult time losing weight. During the past 8-9 months, I have not been able to continue my typical exercise regimen due to knee pain and surgery. As a result, I have gained the nine pounds I lost and added 7 more.Approximately two weeks ago, I started to exercise again, managing to workout four days each week, although no change in weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?

Avatar f tn Hi i weigh 12 stones I was 12.
Avatar m tn As you get older, you may notice that maintaining your usual weight becomes more difficult. The hormonal changes of menopause may make you more likely to gain weight around your abdomen, rather than your hips and thighs. Hormonal changes, genetic factors and lifestyle changes can contribute weigh gain. In addition, muscle mass naturally diminishes with age.
Avatar f tn Losing weight "fast" is not a good thing. You need to figure out how many pounds you want to lose, then calculate your calorie needs, and implement a diet and exercise program accordingly.
Avatar f tn The weight gain will be similar with Depo provera and Micronor more or less. This is one of the side effects of hormonal contraception. Losing weight should not be the criteria to make you switch to Micronor. Weight issues can be tackled with dietary modification and exercise. You can continue with Depo if you and your Doctor find it suitable. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn I am now taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen and have actually begun to FINALLY start losing weight. My weight loss is not much yet, but I was wondering if taking these birth control pills is actually the reason for my weight loss? I know birth control pills are supposed to help with hormonal imbalances, so would taking them also enable me to finally start losing weight, despite the fact that so many women say birth control pills cause them to GAIN weight?
