Does anyone else have trouble with their weight?

Hi ladies,

The title says it all really: does anyone else have trouble with their weight as a result of everything going on?

I know I put weight on when I was younger while taking the pill..... I was never ‘skinny’ to start with but wasn’t that big either. I could always lose weight when I decided to though.

But now I feel like no matter what I eat, I just keep putting weight on so I have ballooned, and no matter what diet I try or how healthy I eat, I don’t lose a single lb. I used to walk quite a bit so although I didn’t go to the gym I was still fairly active but now due to pain I struggle walking any longer than a few mins. I’m no longer on the pill as I got the coil fitted in June, but I didn’t think that affected it.

I’m going crazy with it! I hate the way I look and I’m so down because of it. I get so frustrated when I can’t lose any of it and even when I tried joining different slimming classes, the class leaders couldn’t even understand why I wasn’t losing anything..... especially when my mum was eating the same and losing loads!

Please say I’m not alone with this?

I've actually gone the other way I've lost over 2 stone in a couple of month even though I ate normally and didnt do exercise because I developed exercise induced asthma 😮 I would ask your doctor for advice and tests to see if its not something else 😮 Do you have any pain or bloating because it could be similar to ibs for that you should spilt your meals up into small meals during the day and take up yoga 😮 Also I heard an overacting thyriod causes random weight gain 😮

Do you think our bodies could switch for a bit to even us out then lol 🙈. I don’t get bloating, but I’m always in pain anyway although not in my stomach so not sure if that’s related or not. I only ever eat small portions at a time, I’ve always been that way where I can never eat big meals. Hmm, I’ll maybe speak to my doctor to get some tests for my thyroid then - I was hoping it was related just so I didn’t have one more thing going on! x

Hahaha sure 😉 Ahh okay 😮 Yeah I'd go to the doctor because it could be something else 😮 Personally I've only heard about women with endo losing weight because of ibs or gaining weight because of the hormone treatment 🤔 Hopefully you will get it sorted 🤞🏻 X

The coil can make you gain weight - I did BUT I would get checked out. Push to get some blood tests (thyroid is an essential) but also abdomen check as could be an enlarged ovary etc.

Good luck I’m in a similar situation and I’ve never been this big. Exercise is a nightmare as I get abdominal pain but also I’m sooooo exhausted constantly. I find it weird I haven’t lost a bit but then I seem to feel nauseated am so don’t eat but when I’m hungry I Eat!

Sorry your feeling so rubbish but don’t forget your not alone. If you ever need a shoulder I’m happy to chat x

I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s gaining as well! It’s horrible isn’t it. I’m the same, never been this size before and hating it. As if the pain itself wasn’t bad enough, all the other things like this just make it so much worse x

I’ve never been this low! It’s a horrid condition full of new challenges. Jo public don’t get it as they can’t see it. I’ve had it since I was a teenager and I’m now 40 and feel each day is a challenge. Not fitting in clothes and going up sizes because I can’t bear anything tight on makes me feel a fat, ugly frump.

Big hugs you xx
