Weighty issues

So I did really well on my diet for a couple of weeks, and didn't drop a pound. Then went off the estrace and onto the prometrium and gained two...didn't really diet that week, so the net is a two lb gain.

The only positive news I have healthwise is that I have been getting up early walking in the mornings. I did two days last week and three days the week before. I walked yesterday as well and did a big hike over the weekend. It feels really good and I hope I can continue that for the long term.

So I am trying to lean to the positive but the dieting aspect always defeats me. These are the things that worry me about being a parent....if I do get lucky enough to have a child I hope I don't mess them up with my weighty issues...

Good luck with your weight loss, that can be so very frustrating especially when you have drugs in the mix to mess up your hormones and metabolism. I have been so up an down with my weight this year that I own 2 sets of clothes, sigh. I hope it gets easier for you.

I'd cut yourself a little slack on the weight issue since I'm sure the hormones do a number on normal metabolic function. You are doing waaaayyy better than me by walking every day - and in the morning no less.
