A Female question...

I've been on the diet about six weeks now. I've been holding steady at a ten pound weight loss. However, the past two months, I've been spotting a week before my period is due. I've always been very regular, even before going on the pill, which I am now. Is it the diet that is effecting my cycle? Is it the weight loss? Anyone else having this issue? Will it subside or could this be a sign that maybe this diet isn't the best one for me? (I woke up with a nose bleed this morning, too!) Any opinions????

Also, is it possible that my body is meant to be at this weight? I can't seem to get below 140 no matter what I do. I work out like a fiend, watch my calories and carbs, and I just can't get under that weight. Thoughts?

Elanzer ~ I have been experiencing spotting as well over the past few weeks. I would ask to talk to the doctor at your next visit and call the clinic about the nose bleed.

This topic was discussed on another thread also... Question for the women

I was working out like a fiend before I started Medi and the scale didn't move. During the past 5 weeks, I have only been walking or on the elliptical 30 minutes, 3x a week and my weight has been dropping consistently. I went into maintenance last week & am still losing. Maybe try taking it a little easier with the exercise?

Thanks for responding! And yes, after I posted, I found the other thread. Good to know it's not just me. What an annoying side effect! It's like having a period for two weeks! Blech.

Interesting theory about cutting back on the workouts. I've actually started working out twice a day a few times a week! (I do tend to be a little obsessive.) My clinic up'ed my calories to 700 a day because of how much I work out. Maybe I should up them more? I've had cynics tell me my body is going into starvation mode, and that's why I'm not losing. I don't know. It's just the last ten pounds! Ugh!
