Posted , 9 users are following.

i am so fat and feel so uncomfortable as my stomach is so big ! i was only 110lbs and must be like 135 now .

ive been on the patch since august estrogen i wonder why its taken so long to show the weight ?

im assuming its the patch as ive had mono and no appetite whatsoever.

i feel so bloated like ive eaten 10 hamburgers

    Me too! 119 to 150!! I'm stuffed sausage in my fat clothes.

    I think it takes a solid 3 months to see loss or gain. For me, I think the progesterone helped me gain, but also the crap I'm putting in my mouth.

    Hi Lori didn't you run everyday but then had to stop abruptly because your mono ebv reactivated ? If so that's it lack of exercise! I know for me I'm 5'7 and 135 now, but was dropping to like 120 way too skinny for me, I wasn't hungry sick nauseated all the time, and I just had to push the foods just to get a few pounds back on me.. The weight and meno pause is difficult can fluctuate in both directions, depending on what you eat or lack of eating and exercises you do, maybe juice some veggies and fruits, and do some toga and walking if you can't run anymore.. Hope you feel better soon..

      Absolutely, I've gone from a 4-6 to size 10-12 in three years also. And it's a scientific fact that extra weight causes more hot flashes, which I have constantly. Yes, my underwear drawer is full of tiny little panties that I can't imagine I ever fit into...and I hate buying huge underwear...My face is more than fat...hard to to feel "sexy" when you have all this going on...

    Yes, I hear ya...I refuse to buy a whole new "fat" wardrobe, and can't afford to even if I was willing...the end result is I wear leggings when not at work and have one pair of dress pants that I wash over and over again and wear to work.

    I won't let anyone take a photo of me - it's worse when a friend takes one of you and posts it to Facebook...ugh, how embarrassing...

    I know, I bloat tremendously, and feel like a whale. I'm trying to address it with clean eating and making the effort to walk daily. Small steps...Yes, I find that I can eat next to nothing too and still gain weight....
