4528412 tn?1357069833 Some women are lucky and the weight just falls off after birth, I was not one of those women lol. They say it takes same amount of time to lose baby weight as it does the time it takes you to carry a baby 9+ months.
Avatar n tn You can't choose the places that you lose weight. I don't know how old you are or anything, but - well, let's face it -- gravity takes over at some point and there's bound to be a few sags........... There may be exercises that you can do to maintain muscle fitness in that area, but there's no way to know if you will regain "the mass"....... You need to work on eating right and toning your whole body not just parts of it.
Avatar n tn Margins less well refined in the oblong nodular density in upper medial aspect of left breast. This area was not noted in last mammogram on the written report which I received but noted on this mammogram as not concerned but now with the margins not as well refined want to do diagnostic mammogram and perhaps ultrasound. Could losing a lot of weight and breast mass cause this change?
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 My son was in the nicu for 3 weeks and I breast pumped everyday for 2 weeks and lost weight quick. It contracts the uterus back down and pumping/breast feeding burns calories easily and quickly, I was back to my normal size in about 2 months tho, I only pumped for those 2 weeks and i didn't do any type of exercise routine or diet.
Avatar f tn I hate some of these doctors. I lost 15 lbs and u am now 24 wka preggo and weight loss and pregnancy runs in my fam. Once ur not starving yourself etc don't worry. My baby has the weight and i don't. Doctors talk about bmi etc. i hate that crap, no " weight" chart can possibly tell me i am under weight or over weight. My sister had a 3 month looking belly at 9 months and baby weighed 7 lbs. If u listen to everything these american doc say then u will go nuts.
1519805 tn?1291058650 As you mature, it will be more and more difficult to lose weight. However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?
Avatar f tn Just because you have fat in the abdominal area, doesn't mean you are overweight; it could mean that you need exercise to get rid of it and tone the muscles. Have you ever tried yoga? You can search the internet for free videos to learn how to do it. MedHelp has an excellent food diary, that will help you calculate your calorie needs. Here's a link to another site that will make it simple to calculate them also, plus provide a lot of diet information.
Avatar f tn Any tips on losing weight and tightening up loose skin after child birth?
Avatar f tn I agree with grannieannie -- don't take phentermine while nursing........ in fact, I doubt seriously that you will even be able to find a reputable doctor who will prescribe it, since you are breastfeeding. You say you are counting calories, so I have to ask what types of food you are eating. You need to eat foods that take longest to break down in the body -- lean protein, high fiber. The longer it takes your food to be digested, the longer you will fell full.
Avatar f tn I've changed my diet, I'm following the paleo diet. But since I've started with GM, up til today.. I've lost quite a bit of weight. In 6 months I've lost 23 pounds. Has anyone else experienced quite a bit of weight loss? I'm hoping the weight loss is due to my new diet plan and not the cause of some other underlying health issue.
566878 tn?1218813179 I had operation to remove once last two years ago. I am losing my weight day by day now. Does it relate with the breast lumps?
7989976 tn?1403493624 Losing weight is 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise. I plan on losing a lot of weight ehen thr baby gets here... this isnt for everyone but I will be changing my life style to paleo dieting. Basically you can only eat meats and veggies no carbs. Look into it... but thsts not a good diet if u choose to breast feed... best of luck!
5147790 tn?1364304489 t that hypothyroidism, insulin resistance or PCOS, all of which can cause weight gain and/or make losing next to impossible. Good luck and keep posting.
Avatar f tn Pumping more than breastfeeding damaged my.supply and I dried up. You need to breastfeed exclusively.especially in the beginning to establish a good supply. Yoi could try but I think normally it dorsnt work.
Avatar m tn When a women gets pregnant their breast fill with milk and if they breast feed the milk is then released causing tissue in your breast to break down, the same thing happens with loosing weight. If a women doesn't wear the proper bra this type of thing will happen. The suggestion I can make is to take your girl to a store where they do proper bra fittings (like Dillard's) and get her measured and find a proper bra that will hold her breast tissue in place.
Avatar n tn I'm 39, my mom had breast cancer with lumpectomy and radiation in 2001, so I've been getting mammo's since age 33. Today however I got the dreaded call back saying that I have "area's of concern" on both breasts. I've also lost 100 lbs in the last two years, and wonder if that could be contributing to the changes or AOC's... is it fishy that it is BOTH breasts?
8793709 tn?1409594060 But truthfully I gained 36 pounds in the last 4 months, due to severe morning sickness / weight loss in the first 5 months. I was in such a rush to lose the weight I was incredibly unhealthy. Looking back at pictures of myself during that time I wish I would have taken care of myself better.
Avatar f tn I don't think so. Breasts are mostly made up of fat, so when you're losing weight that is one of the places where you will lose weight. Everyone is different, I don't really lose fat in my breasts when I lose weight, but apparently you do. There's really nothing you can do to stop it except for stop losing weight.
Avatar f tn I have been gaining weight over the past 8years. I cannot seem to lose weight no matter what I try.I have done all the diets only to lose 5lbs and gain10lbs..Extremely tired all the time. I am 5ft 175lbs and 54 years of age. I do not want to be on any prescription medicine. I just lost my baby sister to breast and brain cancer and she too was hypothyroid . Is there any other alternative?
1149046 tn?1264361586 If I lost 20 pounds I would be completely slim. I really only need to lose weight around my stomach area. My question is what are some good exercises that really target your stomach ? Also is it true that it is harder for women to lose weight than it is for men ? And does Mega -T Green Tea with hoodia work ?
Avatar n tn It can also be due to superficial nerve compression (lateral femoral cutaneous nerve), that comes from the hip area and gets pinched. This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling. Also injection of lignocaine (anesthetic agent) at the site helps. It can also be a simple muscle pull.
Avatar f tn If you ever debone a backed chicken, you get see it where the breast bones meet in the front. Mine is visible when lying down, with some people it sticks out more. When I lost weight, I noticed it more, so perhaps with the pregnancy, it didn't show as much. I also was worried when I discovered after losing the weight! take care and enjoy motherhood, Laura p.s. some people get stomach aches from taking Wellbutrin, it's a known side effect.
