Eating does not increase for me at all and I haven't gotten emotional since I quit taking birth control pills.
My problem is that I start gaining a pound a day for a week or so before my period is to start. I lose it right after.
So if you do the math, I started the weight loss thing about 24 days ago, weighing in at my hormonal peak for the month. I had a big drop right after for two weeks and then levelled off. Now I am on the upswing.
I am not in the least frustrated over that because I know that in a few days, I will lose the weight again.
What I am frustrated about is the fact that I am 51 years old, my five children are 33, 31, 27, 25 & 25, my grandchild is 14. I deserve menopause and the cessation of hormonal ups and downs.
The main reason I do not deal with emotional issues is because I have excess testosterone, which although it causes a mustache and balding, I can skip the weeping while I am punching out the paper boy for throwing the paper in the hedges.
