I am literaly to the point of giving up

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have lost 11lbs in 27 weeks (6.5 months) - no apparent reason for the weight loss - eating normally, cut alcohol out weekly now and drink only Fridays, I used to drink 2-3 times during the week but not anymore, this weight loss is driving me insane, weighed myself yesterday and lost 4lbs in a week, really?! This is not normal for me!

Can someone please help me!

    So I am curious bear with me my question mark key is broken. You lost a ton of weight after cutting back alcohol from daily to once a week. Then you had tests done and gained it all back. If my summary is correct I would say that alcohol is extremely high in fat so cutting it out might explain the initial weight loss. But you may have replaced it with something else like possibly eating more which might explain the weight gain. Is that possible.

      Hi there

      Thanks for replying

      My GP says stress and anxiety coupled with cutting out the alcohol and being a bigger size does impact weight more so than some others.

      He is comfortable that the bloods and scan is normal & there is weight gain, after all the tests were done I seemed to have relaxed and grazed again so maybe that is why I have gained again
