Weight Loss and Hormone Replacement Therapy

So many women have to deal with the problem of Weight loss. It seems like once we reach the age of twenty then our metabolism changes. Add to that having babies and dealing with the added weight gain of each pregnancy, it’s an ongoing problem for the majority of our lives.

In the past, whenever I would gain five pounds or so during the holiday season which started with Thanksgiving and ended with the New Year, I could usually manage to get the weight off by eating healthier and going for walks several times a week. However, when I turned fifty, that didn’t work at all. In fact, I gained ten pounds during the holiday season and couldn’t lose the weight afterwards. Even six months later I still hadn’t lost the weight. When I visited my doctor during the summer for something else, she had me take a special hormone test and then put me on a natural compounded hormone after she received the results of the test. After just a couple of months on the hormone, I lost ten pounds without really trying to lose weight. Simply eating healthy and light exercising worked once again.

Many women nowadays choose hormone replacement therapy to help with a lot of problems caused by hormone imbalance.  This imbalance affects weight loss, fibromyalgia, headaches, anxiety, depression, and other health issues, probably more than we realize.  I think especially when many women reach their 30’s, they can start having problems with their monthly cycle due to hormone imbalances.  I can look back now and realize that some of the problems I had in my late 30’s were caused by this imbalance.  Having balanced hormones definitely make a difference with me.

Note: I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for Chattanooga weight loss and Chattanooga hormone replacement therapy,  and I was compensated monetarily. However, the views and opinions are my own.
