Weight Gain
« on: November 01, 2011, 07:32:55 PM »

Hi there

As a woman who started menopause at 36 and is still suffering symptoms at 48 I am trying to tackle my latest legacy - weight gain.  Does anyone have any advice/tips/recommendations for me?  I have gained more than 4 stones and no matter how little I eat I cannot shift the (very) unwanted pounds.  I am not looking for a miracle cure but any help gratefully received.

Ok if you dont eat much and have put on that amount have you had your Thyriod checked
Theres no magic bullett what do you thinks causing it is it HRT is it food is it lack of excer

Are you on hrt as this can def cause weight gain. Have you had your thryoid checked recently?? I have underactive thryoid and this causes weight gain and tiredness.

I found that keeping a food diary of absolutely everything put in my mouth was a big eye opener for me :o Maybe try this for a week and see just how much you are really eating.

Me too Rielayace 3.5 to 4 stones.

I am afraid to write a negative word here about the numerous different eating habits I have tried - because it will only become lodged in my brain - but I am with you on this one.

There is another thread going at the moment in a similar vein with suggestions.

Exercise is missing from my regime - so that is a gap I need to plug - slowly!!
