fat and hormones for women

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Just wanted to share something I learned recently at the breast specialist's office. I had my yearly exam and they found a lump, which turns out is completely fine, (thank God) but the Dr told me that if you've ever taken birth control pills or anything like them, it can take up to a year for those hormones to leave your system and for your body to go back to regulating itself on it's own. Then she told me the clincher, that for those of us who have pounds to lose, the hormones actually stay in the fat, that's where estrogen and progesterone are stored, so they stick around way longer if you're over weight! Just a little more motivation to get off my last 25!
