I might be stopping trying to lose any more weight. My Dr has suggested I stop trying and let my body just maintain for the next six months or so due to period and messed up hormone issues. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand I want to listen to Dr advice. On the other its just a possibility that the weight loss has messed with my hormones and that giving my body a good break will help it reset. Part of me wants to take advice purely because I'm actually really sick of trying to lose weight. But I'm soooo close. If I could stay on plan I could slog it out and be at goal in two months. What's another two months right?
I was on some hormone pills to try and sort things (really irregular and painful periods) and that didn't help. And when I lost 10cm around my booty and some around my arms that is an oestrogen storage site so it is all linked.
Its so easy to use this as an excuse and just say ok I'm done. But what if I can't maintain and I gain? Honestly I'm scared I'm going to gain all my weight back because while I've made some life style changes I still have no will power around sweets etc. If there is chocolate in the house it is in my mouth! So if I haven't made permanent sticking changes what will happen?
