Weight gain due to peri

Posted , 5 users are following.

Do any of you lovely ladies have any secrets about weight gain from peri? I try to exercise 5 days a week I have to admit it's been hit or miss recently. I exercise at night which you know how things go things come up at night. I try getting up in the mornings but I feel so ill in the mornings. I also don't eat a whole lot either.  So if you have anything that works for you let me know.  Thank you

    Hi hun, just to let you know, weight gain or weight loss is very common with peri and full menopause, even post. So dont worry, hormones are involved in so many processes that the entire body goes haywire. I have been overweight all my life due to polycystic ovaries and 31 years of steroids. Now I am in full meno, I have dropped more than 40 pounds in 8 weeks! Thats totally without any concious effort. I dont mind because I've tried every diet known to man to no avail. It will only help me get more healthy in the long run. But gaining weight is just as common. I think it all depends which hormone crashes first as to whether you lose or gain weight. Hope this helps!

    I'm slowly gaining as well and wished I was one of those who lost weight at this time.   I think that's great that you exercise as it's important for joints, bones, etc...   You may want to eat super healthy and see if that helps.  The two go hand in hand but what foods you are eating is most important..

      Yes.  Sugar cravings are tough then it all goes to pot...  Sugar is like a drug and it ages you so that's why I should eliminate it.  I bet the weight would come off easier too!!  : )
