Lost 3 kilos in 2 weeks with no diet or exercise. Should I be wooried

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all, I have Gerd and Hiatal hernia which give me symptoms on and off. for the past 3 days however I haven't had any of the symptoms. last night I felt weirdly tired and light headed and decided to see the GP and I have lost 3 kilos in 2 weeks. As a health anxious person, my worries have gone from 1 to a 100... Has anyone ever experienced such ?

      Thanks... I 'll have to push for further tests. what funny in my situation is for the last week I have even pretty much everything with no flare up. I m wondering where is the weight loss coming from. I haven't been exercising much apart from lifting boxes and cleaning up after I moved houses. it worries me.

    Hi christelle51

    You knocked the nail on the head moving is well documented to be one of the most stressful times we can go through. I have moved quite a few times and the stress of moving packing, unpacking and sorting things out caused me to lose weight too. I was delighted needed to lose a bit. Once you have settled in and all is back to normal your weight will go back on as it did me. Stop stressing and getting anxious this will cause weight loss. Weight loss does not always mean a sign of cancer. There are many reasons for weight loss..Hope you get settled soon in your new home..best wishes...

      Thanks Mary! your reply is so calming. I am really stressed and I am glad to know I m not just losing my mind. I hope I settle soon and I will try and keep my mind off my health issues. that is again for reassuring me that it's a normal thing to go through in the middle of such a chaotic situation. Thanks again Mary!
