Hi Julie

Firstly, please stop beating yourself up – we are all only human.

I think Irene is right in that you should maybe check in with the dietician first. We all know what we should be eating and how much exercise we should be doing but it’s that mind-block of knowing but not doing it that got us all here in the first place.

I went on HRT at the beginning of the year and started putting a few pounds back on so I stopped taking it (it didn’t do any good anyway) and the weight went again. I’m now having quite a few problems with menopausal syptoms, but I’ve chosen to just ride them out (they are a natural part of getting older!) so that I don’t gain any weight with medication.

When I’m having a tough time with ‘Head hunger’, I find going back to basics helps: soups, soups, soups! All home made and full of goodness. There is something strangely comforting about home made soup that helps me with my ‘psychological’ battle with food. Maybe I associate it with being cared for as a child….who knows?!

Anyway, I hope you can find a way of getting back on track. We ALL know how devastating weight gain is after such a struggle to get it under ‘control’. Please let us know how you get on.
