Hi Ladies -

Just wondering if any of you have experienced weight loss during perimenopause. I over the last year gained about 8 lbs but have noticed over the last month or so I have lost it (without trying). I am an extremely anxious person and its usually very hard for me to gain weight so was surprised when I gained 8 pounds in 6 months (I am thin and only weighted 118 and now back to 118). Not sure if it is something to worry about (God knows I don't need anything else to give me reason to worry). My anxiety has been very bad these last few days and now that I have weighed myself it's giving me major anxiety.

Thanks for any response you can provide. I swear this stage is going to drive me insane.

    Hi Joann,

    There is currently a discussion going on about weight loss right now, it began with HopefulTrina.

    There is a good amount of feedback including my own as well. I'm sure you can find it in the forum.

    Try to relax.

    Here for you,XO

    I'll look at the other thread... But I used to be hungry all the time especially before my period. BUT these last 6 months I'm more anxious therefor I don't feel hungry. In my case it's ok.. I was really worried about losing the extra pounds, now this anxiety helping a little.
