Ever since I have decided to get back into doing Sparkpeople; I am finding it harder to NOT get depressed and to not watch what I am eating. Everyone has their theories--husband: laziness and not prioritizing right; other family and friends: maybe it is my thyroid and the fact that I had a total hyserectomy over 1 year ago and now my hormones are all messed up. I am taking zoloft--small dose and estrogen; however, I feel like that the hormone issue is where it is at. I have read a lot of things about how a woman goes into menopause that she has a way harder time losing the weight.
Ugh!!! I had to change doctors and when I went to see my new doctor; it was only long enough to get my history, do my exam, give me prescriptions for my current meds, and a prescription to go and get my mamogram done. She didn't really take the time to discuss any of my concerns with her at all. So, now I am working to go back to the doctor that performed my surgery and also, going to call this new doctor to give me an order to go and have a complete hormone panel done. I want to know and damn it I want a doctor, who is suppose to be about womens health--not just the ones that can have babies; to be a huge priority!!! Sorry, had to vent that.
Any comments, thoughts, ideas, and whatever else from anyone out there in Sparkland?! I can really use these from the people who are in my shoes--losing and/or maintaining their weight and are in menopause.
