Before I was diagnosed with endo, I was 8 stone dead for years and years. Admittedly I was in quite a high pressure job back then, as well as being 20 years younger and doing a lot of running around.
Practically the minute I was diagnosed, my weight started to creep up, on account of all of the drugs that were being pumped into me. I also had problems with recurrent miscarriage and had drugs pumped into me for that too.
As I type today, 20 years after diagnosis, I am just under 15 stone. I started Weight Watchers on 1st January and have stuck rigidly to it, and in the whole month I have lost the grand total of one pound.
I have tried various diets over the years and they have all failed, the only exception being the enforced no fat at all diet I had to be on while I was waiting for my gallbladder to be taken out. But after seeing the Christmas photos, and more importantly because my blood pressure has shot up recently, I became determined to follow a diet to the letter and get shot of at least some of the excess!
This is all a bit long winded, but what I was really wondering was if there was a link between endo and weight - has anybody else found that where their friends are dieting and losing pounds every week, you're not able to shift anything?
