Well, I can't stop eating but I keep losing weight.   I know that sucks to hear but its only because I had a lot of muscle.  Now its all fading away.  I had better stop eating so much too before my muscle loss crutch runs out and I start gaining a lot of fat. 

*looks at stomach*

hmmmmm it might already be happening.  darn it. :embarrassed:

Pizza is my nemesis :O

Yep my metabolism has been fast all my life and still is but I actually can gain weight finally. So it has slowed down some since starting hrt but not by much.

I gained 5-8 pounds since I started almost a year ago, mostly from the holidays (cookies and junk food!) and starting progesterone in November.  I had to overhaul my entire lifestyle recently to compensate.   Low carb, no meat, 1+ hour of cardio per day.

Welcome to the girly world sweetie! Typically a woman puts on an additional ten pounds when going on HRT the little fem tummy is just a part of the program, cis women hate it, but it is what it is.

I have some stomach even though I've lost 10 lbs this year eating nothing but salad for the most part and walking 3-4 miles most days. I weigh 163 right now.

I was really hungry when I went on a transitioning dose of HRT in October and I ate too much over the holidays so now it's salad. I crave pizza and carbs though lol....

Today I started Progesterone so we will see what happens with that.

Congrats on the P!  Mah bewbs are already thanking me, but mah butt is sore from all of the cardio it necessitated!
