Back on the Met

Yep, I'm back on Metformin. That's on purpose and no we're not trying to get pregnant again (yet). My cycles have been messed up since they came back post-partum. It's been driving me bonkers. The other thing driving me bonkers is my appetite. There were days I would just be hungry all day. No matter what I ate I was still hungry. I remember the first time I was on Metformin (when that was the *only* fertility drug I was on) I was so NOT hungry that I could barely eat the required food to actually take the pill. Therefore, taking the drug can not only make my cycles bearable but it will also help my appetite be normal again. Seriously I've been hungry as if I were still pregnant (which I'm not at all), and my weight loss has plateaued. No good...I'm still way higher than a good normal weight for my height. I've been on the Metformin for 3 days and already I've noticed a better appetite--meaning it's normal, and I don't think about food all day long. And right now I'm on the lowest dose, which is 1/3 of what my dose will probably become. I'm happy now. I'm not starving, I'm eating normally, and hopefully I'll finally be able to get down to my happy weight. On top of that I shouldn't have 40+ day cycles anymore! Woooo!

My dad took Metformin, for diabetes, and it really helped with his weight loss. Good luck, I hope it gets your cycles back to normal too!

It sounds like Met gives you a happy body! I hope it has you back on the road to 'normal' again soon.

Thanks for the chart interpretation! Here is my link to my FF page.
(I'm thinking about getting back on the Met if this cycle is a bust.)
