Sorry if Im being personal but when you started running for the first time did you find that your periods changed or became irregular in anyway, some months I dont know whether Im coming or going.

no, not really... unless the running takes your weight too low. Are you getting enough iron? you need a little more if your running.

Hi Trinity,

I started running on a treadmill about a year ago and outside on the roads since January but in the last 3 months they have been getting heavier and heavier.

I have lost about three and half stone in this time and still losing.

So you think I should increase my Iron intake.

I going to see my doctor on Monday so it will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

it could be that your iron level is low.

That's an amazing amount of weight to lose though... has it come off very gradually? Because a sharp loss in weight can also affect you hormones

Its taken me about 17 months to lose that much weight. I have done it very slowly and ive manage to keep it off and Im still losing weight but I wont be happy until Ive lost at least another 2 stone, then I will be happy.

Like I say Im going to the doctors on monday it will be interesting to see what he has to say

Thanks for listening to me drone on

Hi Guys,

Sorry didnt reply to post earlier been at work all weekend.

Put it this way, I was very overweight to begin with but now Im not so overweight but still need to lose about two stone.

Been to the doctors he has given me some tablets to thin the periods out, so hopefully this will work.

Weight loss is such an achievement and i always say to people it always stays with you forever, the paranoia of putting it back on, i lost 4 stone in 2000 and still eat as i am dieting BUT i shouldnt as running uses a lot of calories and you have to fuel yourself correctly... if you are a fussy eater like me, getting yourself balanced with vitamins is vital, i had a blood test last week as i kept going faint.

Thank god my results were normal, BUT i do have an ear infection which is why i keep going light headed etc..

I suffer with iron diffency and take a one a day supplement now.

Well done Sharon i can only imagine its an amazing amount of weightloss
