Hey ladies, so I know a lot of us endo sisters struggle with weight. Mine has always fluctuated and as a result I have struggled with various types of eating disorders for most of my life. I have been "recovered" for about 3 years now, but occasionally some of my endo issues (bloating, weight gain/inability to lose weight) trigger some ED related urges.
I am a performer, and last summer was extremely active during a 8 week show run. I lost weight, gained muscle, and was generally in great shape. I was able to maintain that until January of this year. I assumed at first it was holiday weight, but I also got on an estrogen only BC pill around the holidays. Since late December/early Jan I have gained almost 10 pounds, and it's causing extreme anxiety for me. I am now on the Mirena coil, and I have zero will power when it comes to food. Mood swings and stress are causing me to emotionally eat, while endo pain and being on my cycle non-stop since I got the Mirena inserted have caused an absolute lack of motivation to exercise.
In short, I need help! None of my clothes fit right, my hubby and I aren't having sex, and I'm miserable. Thinking about seeing a nutritionist, don't have access to an endo specialist in this area. Any and all suggestions welcome!
