In May of this year I had to have a hysterectomy due to so many medical problems I was having. Before the surgery I weight 148lbs and after my surgery I noticed my weight started going up. I talked to my doctor and read about what to expect after the surgery. I then found out that since I didn't get my ovaries removed then it was normal to gained weight. Most women gained up to 15lbs.
I was so stressed out and depressed from the hair loss and the weight gain! I was determined to find a way to lose weight, but at the same time I was lost because I had tried losing weight before and had no luck. I am so grateful for SparkPeople because in 2 months I have lost 12lbs and was not stressed at all! I am going on the hysterectomy website and tell all those women that there is hope! All they need to do is join and start taking advantage of all the free tools available!
