depo provera and weight loss

Postby darateacher » Mon Aug 31, 2009 02:47 pm

I'm finally off of the depo. Ugh! Anyway, have only been on it for 6 mos.

I didn't gain any weight. Just maintained, but I still need to lose weight to get back to my pre-preggo state.

Anyone have any tricks that work for weight loss after depo provera?

Thanks!

Will your hectic schedule permit you to get back to running? Jogging Walking? Your body knows it and likes it.

Are you breast feeding? Some women have a hard time loosing while bf. And I'd think if you were bf 2, even if only occassionally, your body might hold onto weight to make sure it can support feeding two babies. Not saying that you should stop bf, if you are...just that it could be interferring with the weight loss.

Kara- I had to stop breastfeeding because I was only getting 1oz. during each pumping session.

I'd love to get back to running!!!! I'll be doing that soon. Been walking some. I'm having a difficult time really dieting over here. When I'm hungry, I eat healthy food, but I am eating. Gotta start writing it all down again. Bummer!
