non stopping eating

Posted , 4 users are following.

i am 52 and having a bit of a rough time dealing with this peri stuff but have been trying hard to deal with it. But lately i CANNOT stop eating-i could finish a meal and i going looking for more food! I have gained 14 lbs in a month and a half and i just hate it. I have always been heavy and this is not good for me- plus i go to the gym 5 days a week and i still am gaining- Please if anyone can give me any advice i would love to hear it-p.s. my bloodwork came back fine thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I felt alot like that to start with. B6 seemed to make a huge difference as did going on a very limited carb diet (like atkins). Gym didn't help shift the weight but it is good for general toning etc.

    I'm sure there are other posts on here along the same lines and we all have different ways of coping smile

    Hi Kathy

    totally relate to you. Ive put on almost two stones in the last year, despite exercising every day. Really getting me down, and I know Im asking for trouble. Even low carb didnt help. Normally the weight would fall off with low carb diet and exercise. Started taking thyroxine tablets 2 months ago, but still no difference. Have been taking B vitamins for a year now. Will be interested in any advice! I managed to stop smoking 6 months ago with Champix tablets, wish they would help me to stop eating. X

      Hi Debbie nice of you to write back and so glad to see i am not alone with this problem. it used to be so easy losing weight for me- now i just look at a piece of cake and gain 5 lbs that will take 6 months to lose it!! I also stopped smoking 2 months ago cold turkey and thought maybe that was the problem i just don't know what to think or do anymore- i truly feel like i am losing my mind i dont know which way to turn but i will keep trying to lose the weight bc i am so unhappy and hate the way i feel right now. so thanks again debbie and if you hear anything please let me know thanks and lets just try to hang in there dont know what else to do!! Kathy

    Hi Kathy, woke up today crying, Im so fed up. Spend my time surfing the menopause and hypothyroid forums! Really thought that starting the thyroxine tablets would help, but no, still has this mass of fatness! Stick in there, dont give up! At least, thats what I tell myself! X

    Don't beat yourself up about it. The list of cr*p that we deal with is enough to drive most men to their knees smile. I've taken anti-depressents for a while when I first hit peri and have to say it helped. If nothing else it got me on an even keel and able to work. if you get SSRIs they help with hot flushes etc too.

    If you can get it via your GP counselling is also really useful. I ended up going private as I didn't like the NHS woman I got, but the time and space to talk really helped. As do these forums!

    Be kind to yourself and keep posting smile

    Hugs
