Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight naturally for free


Avatar n tn t really need to gain if you were over weight when the pregnancy started. Eat healthy meals, normal portions, exercise moderately. You may lose weight naturally as baby takes up some of the excess calories you were consuming. I'd consider yourself weight neutral right now and just eat healthy with proper portion control and not worry about the end result of your weight.
Avatar f tn Also b12 help sustain energy if your taking antidepressants it just makes you feel down... I was on xanax for several years but I never gained weight.. Although I have never had the need for methadone, I do not know what side effects it has.. exercise also helps give you the energy you need to lose those extra pounds. .
Avatar n tn I know the feeling. There is always a tomorrow or next week when it comes to proactively losing weight. And if I feel overweight then yes I want the weight gone yesterday. Some advice. Don't drop the weight quickly, this is rarely a long-term solution. If I took time and had the mental discipline I could have lost weight many times over. Do it once, do it right. Issues with weight and body image are taxing (emotionally, physically and financially) and demoralizing.
Avatar f tn If not, then you should consider getting tested for the biologically active thyroid hormones, Free T3 and Free T4 (not the same as Total T3 and Total T4), along with TSH. If your FT3 and FT4 are in the low end of their ranges, then this would be consistent with the hypo symptoms you describe.
Avatar f tn Hi girls. I'm 8 days post-partum I was wondering if losing 20 pounds after delivery is normal, I am a naturally petite girl but I just think it's drastic lol I mean I shouldn't complain and I'm not but just wondering if I'm the only one.
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 t tell you how much to intake becasue its different for each person based off of the amount of weight that you weight etc.hope this helps as it has helped me.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
Avatar f tn 300 mcg of levothyroxine seems like a huge dose for any person. Usually a person need thyroxine of around 1.6 times of body weight. For example a 50 kg person approximately need around 75 mcg for full replacement provided they don't have any problem absorbing thyroxine. Too much of thyroxine actually make metabolism slow down and raise weight, cholesterol etc.
1961938 tn?1398718101 I am in a weight loss group from before I was pregnant. I'm only still in it because its paid up for another year and I am the assistant weight recorder in it. Of course I have a doctors note saying I'm pregnant and can't be losing lots of weight so my weight doesn't help or hurt the group. Anyways, my sister is in the group as well, as the official weight recorder. She is on my case about my weight constantly!
1149046 tn?1264361586 For your height, you are just about perfect weight. Losing 20 pounds would put almost in the "underweight" category. I would not advise doing that. Here's part of a height/weight chart that applies to YOU.
Avatar n tn I would also suggest that you test for Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin. Usually when Free T3 is low, there is weight gain. In doing some reading about weight loss, I found this info. "Other endocrine cause of weight loss is cortisol deficiency. This can be tested by doing 8.00 AM serum cortisol level. You need to be investigated for other causes of weight loss such as some chronic infection, diabetes etc." So this points to the possibility of other tests that may be advisable.
542730 tn?1234673838 thank u. i havent had this weight on for a long period of time. maybe a year. so i'm hoping if i stick to what i plan on doing i hope i can lose it before then. as sad as it sounds, yes i dislike all veggies but i think i might force myself to eat them. i havent tried them in a long time so i'm hoping i will like them this time. :) thank u again!
Avatar f tn If you're gaining weight, in spite of a healthy diet and adequate exercise, you should talk to your doctor about getting some simple blood tests to determine whether or not you have hypothyroidism (under active thyroid). The thyroid controls metabolism, body temperature, heart rate and other important body functions; if the thyroid isn't producing enough hormones, your body functions will slow down. The tests you need are Free T3, Free T4 and TSH.
Avatar m tn and yes there are lists of food to avoid but we all may have a different list as some food that are safe for me, ,may not be for you so create a list. I also know weight changes be it losing or gaining can trigger a flare of symptoms....so know that you can continue for a while to have symptoms even if you do lose weight.....but in time things should calm down. Reducing stress can help too...so find a way to relax the beat way you can for you.....I am not on meds for reflux all the time....
Avatar m tn The tests you need to ask for are Free T3 and Free T4, which are actual thyroid hormones and TSH which is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones. Many doctors will only want to order the TSH - insist on the Free T3 and Free T4, as well.
Avatar f tn How can I lose weight overall, but mostly in my thighs. My hips are naturally wide, it runs in my family, but within the past two years I've gotten unfit. My hips are wider and my thighs are bigger. I don't have much of a problem with my stomach. My goal is to make my thighs smaller and lose the cellulite. I'd like to lose about 20 lbs. and tone up my thighs especially. Any suggestions on how to do this? All help thanked!
Avatar f tn I was losing weight mainly because of the headaches, and my work was beginning to suffer. I went to a nutritionist regarding my tiredness and weight loss. The nutritionist committed me to one month of perfect eating, sleeping, routine walks and no alcohol. After the month I was symptom free. No headaches, great energy, and the muscle aches have subsided. I've been maintaining the proper diet, sleep, walking and moderation on alcohol.
Avatar f tn Women who are mid-weight - a little overweight - are very at risk for large weight gains. Women who are significantly overweight often don't gain much at all. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn Many thing can contribute to that including medication, age, diabetes itself...forgive yourself for not losing weight and keep working hard to maintain your health as a whole.
Avatar m tn Is Levoxyl inhibiting my metabolism from losing weight as well as gaining it. Last year for six months I kept my diet to 2000 calories , circuit trained everyday and maybe lost 5 pounds. I'm 240 pounds.....
Avatar f tn I have had friends who used to go to the gym then stopped and did their own exercise at home for free. I mean different things work for different people. I weigh nearly 70kgs and Im only 19. I used to be 55kgs 2 years ago. Im also a vegeterian. What do you propose is a good, healthy way of dieting ?
Avatar f tn Hello all, I am 20 years old and 5'3". I use to weight around 115-120 pounds and I was perfectly happy with my weight. Over the last semester (about 4 months) I went up to 140 lbs. It was probably due to it being the most stressful semester of my college career. Still, I have been working out 5 times a week doing 30 min of cardio (biking or jogging) and limiting myself to around 1200 (sometimes 1300) calories.
Avatar f tn please help. I suspect I have been hypothyroid for the last ten years (when I started putting on weight for no reason). I’m going to be 32 next week and it would be amazing to see even a little progress.
