Topic: Why have I lost weight so fast?
July 16, 2019 / By Belita Question:
I have been trying all summer to lose weight since the beginning of June. I only lost a pound the entire month though even though I was exercising and I thought I was dieting. Apparently I was still eating too much. Then in July I started watching more closely HOW MUCH I was eating and after a few days I noticed a pound drop. The day after I wake up two pounds lighter and I've started my period. Don't people ususally lose weight on their periods. I know it wasn't a fluctuation because my weight is three pounds lower than it has ever been in the last four months. I have a history of diabetes and I know rapid weight loss is a symptom. Should I be concerned and ask my doctor? I have been trying to lose this weight and it seems I've lost it too fast.

Diet is 80% of the results you see so this change in diet can trigger a sudden weight loss.... losing 2lbs a week is normal...but it is definitely possible to lose more than that. Girls usually gain weight on their period due to bloating......but if you want to be sure and safe...go see a doctor if you think its a medical problem. Also if your trying to lose weight its best not to weigh yourself everyday (more like once a week) cuz weight often fluctuate day to day
Fluctuations in how much you drink, sweat, eat, the time of day you weigh yourself, anything really, can cause slight weight gains/losses. Three pounds is not that big of a deal. There are several other warning signs of diabetes...such as excessive thirst, excessive urination, "sweet" smelling pee, and others....if you have some of those AND the weight loss, then you may be concerned...but just a few random pounds is probably no big deal.

Yeah, I lost 47 pounds.
- Started eating healthier foods, making small changes in the way I ate, and exercising.
- I didn't have a "typical schedule," I just tried to make the best eating choices in whatever situation I happened to be in. Weight loss doesn't have to involve a lot of planning and it doesn't have to be boring. But I tried to have five or six small meals a day, and not to eat at night.
- I went for walks. That was really all I did, a lot of walking. But I still lost weight.
- 47 pounds.
- I was obese before, and I know now that I will be healthier as an adult if I eat healthy, exercise, and maintain a healthy weight.
