Losing weight your period

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight your period


Avatar f tn Some people might think that if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, the weight will just fall off you. This is not true. Actually, if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, your body thinking its not going to get food, goes into something called starvation mode and holds on to every calorie. This is real. This isn't an exaggeration.
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 n tn Why do you want to be underweight? If you love sports you most likely have a lot of muscle mas making up your current underweight BMI. Get a fat percentage measurement done and you may find that you should actually worry more about properly nourishing and taking care of your body's needs than losing weight. Don't hurt yourself, and your body will continue to play sports. Underweight is not good. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.

Perhaps you may want to focus on smaller goals of 2 lbs or 5 lbs and celebrate many successes rather than focusing on 25 lbs as the entire number can sometimesbe psychologically overwhelming. It will take the pressure off you greatly and doing this way can help you stay on the right track. I would say go for it..have a plan to implement like exercise,healthy food and of course for motivation and support you can always count on us!
Avatar n tn When you lose a large amount of weight, estrogen automatically declines. If you stop losing this weight at a healthy weight, once your body adjusts to the new amount of hormones, you should return to normal. Another reason for lack of menstruation after weight loss is poor nutrition, related to a lack of iron, zinc and lack of healthy dietary fats.
Avatar n tn If you're really losing and not gaining back you must be so thin. It's normal for the body to increase a few pounds before a lot of times because we crave salt which retains water in the body. During a period many bloat adding weight then when it's done that water weight, blood and bloat go down. I fluctuate 5 lbs or so. I have an irregular period so seeing a few pounds go on is sometimes a clue for me that I'm going to start soon.

Avatar f tn Where thers the food and exercise button next to it its the weight. Did you tried to change it there ?
Avatar n tn s red dried discharge on my underwear. My period ended two days ago, but two days ago, I got pretty sick and lost some weight. Not to the point where I'm disturbingly underweight, but at least four pounds in three days. I ate some more food today since I finally felt able to, and then this starts again. I know that rapid weight loss can screw with your cycle, but should that still happen on birth control pills? And can that tiny amount of weight mess with my body THAT badly?
Avatar f tn Hi, so I have polycystic ovaries I think Ive had them for about 6 years now but chose to neglect its signs and symptoms (heavy & prolonged bleeding, no periods for months) because I didnt really know anything about it (I was 12) until about two years ago. Ive had ultrasounds, been on pills and metformin, had D&C. So, just this january, my ultrasound results turned normal (NO cysts on both ovaries), but I haven't had my period from January up til now.
Avatar f tn list=PL9FxWnfq1Oyo9pHHUPHeQne4iqoZ4zTN_ Figure your heart rate by this formula The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
Avatar n tn Yes, in your case. Since you are losing weight it sounds possible that you may have begun ovulating again and got pregnant before you could have the evidence of a period. When you begin to menstruate again after losing weight, ovulation comes first and then the period. It would show up a the pregnancy test by now if you are having symptoms.
Avatar f tn If the water that builds up for your period could be losing with what your exercising off?... But your not losing below what your weight is staying at yet. Bc of your period. I would really like to know because I'm getting discouraged :( I eat below 2000 calories a day an am getting worried ...
Avatar n tn Hiya Thanks for the reply will go back, see what the doctor says this time round, just hope it stops end of this week I am really fed up to honest, also on a diet the doctor advised me lose a few pounds is it me? is it hard losing weight with this pcos condition?
Avatar f tn If your A1C is high you are likely pre-diabetic. That combined with PCOS will make it tough getting pregnant. Ask your doctor about taking metformin. This will help regulate your insulin levels which will help your diabetes and will work with your ovaries to hopefully get them to ovulate. Metformin has also been known to help women lose weight combined with diet and exercise. Watch your portion size. When you eat a carb make sure you've got a protein. Cut out sugars.
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 f tn One lb of weight is equivalent to about 3500 calories. So if you want to lose a pound of weight your going to need to cut back a total of 3500 calories in three or four days and you will likely lose about 1 lb. I hope this makes sense to you. If your body is burning 2000 calories daily and you are eating 1300 calories daily that is a 700 calorie deficiency per day. So... in about 5 days you would loose 1 lb. (700 calorie per day X 5 days= 3500 calories. Now...
11696213 tn?1420470907 As long as you are eating healthy and regularly and taking your prenatals you are good loosing weight could be good for you and your baby being over weight can put you and your unborn at higher risk if it becomes a big concern for you bring in up to your ob they will give you a professional opinion i wouldnt be worried though praying for you and your unborn you are going to have an awesome pregnancy :)
Avatar f tn No it's normal at during your 1st trimester for your weight to be down and up.. Keep taking your prenatals and whatever you could keep down make it healthy.. I lost 13 lbs from my 1st and 2nd trimester.. If it gets worse your doctor will help you don't worry.
Avatar f tn if your periods are irregular or non existent a lot of doctors will put you on birth control because the pill usually regulates your period. however, this will not help your issue with losing weight. i took the pill and gained 25 pounds in less than 2 months.. awful. but i would talk to your doctor and see what your options are, always you may want to discuss having your hormone levels and thyroid levels checked.
Avatar f tn I lost 20 pounds the first 19 week of my pregnancies from morning sickness. I just started gaining weight and I've already gained 10 pounds. So be happy your losing it because once you start gaining it your going to gain like crazy. But they say you usually lose weight with boys, and well everyone I know with boys has lost weight like crazy so if you haven't yet found out what your having this might be a good wives tale.
