    Dear harderv

    I lost weight in peri due to gastitis , I have read other womens stories on here who loose weight in peri, best get tests done for peace of mind but I lost alot of weight which freaked me out! Thankfully the gastitis cleared and my weight went the other way but now it has levelled back off again x

    Hi hun, whatever you do, dont panic and assume the worst. Meno can affect your appitite drastically. I've lost over 40 pounds in 9 weeks or so. I have a horrid taste like soap in my mouth all the time. My mouth is dry all the time too. I have no interest in food at all so I force myself to eat something every day but it is not alot so my weight is plummeting. I'm sure its just hormones with both of us, and I'm also 55! XXX

      As I'm a large lady I dont let it worry me too much. I do usually manage something every day but not alot. It wont do me any harm to lose some weight anyhow and I've never been able to lose much before due to polycystic ovaries and steroids to treat it! XXX

    I don't have much of an appetite either. I makes myself eat three meals a day during the work week. But most weekends I only eat once or twice a day. I drink water and take a good multivitamin so I have some energy to go about my daily duties. Don't panic, from what I've seen on this forum a lot of women lose weight.
