Getting my mirena out tomorrow & hopefully losing this weight! UPDATE!! :)

Posted by   + Show Post

Ever since I got my bc I have not been able to lose weight. I lost 10 lbs in the beginning & that was it. Well I am getting it out tomorrow & hoping to drop the lbs/inches again! Right now I weigh 271 lbs. I haven't been eating really healthy in a few weeks because I honestly didn't see the point, but I am starting up again & getting back into an exercise routine. My goal weight is 160-170. I know it is going to take time, but I'm ready to start making my dreams come true! ******UPDATE 5/28/12 Tomorrow makes a week since having my mirena removed & this morning when I weighed in I weighed 264 lbs!! That's 7 lbs gone since!! This is the first time in 6 months I have seen the number on the scale drop!!

There aren't any non-hormonal pills out there (their mechanism is the hormones). There is, however, a non-hormonal IUD, which is just as effective as Mirena.

Crap. I hate the IUD lol. I guess even if I take the pill it'll be fine, i dont really have too many issues with hormones in BC i was told the pill could benefit me anyway because i might have a hormone imbalance..

Eating healthy, exercising, & cutting out soda.

Good luck! I didn't notice a difference when mine was removed, or when I had a new one back in (we tried to conceive for a few months). I've managed to lose most of my weight with mine in. I was actually close to your weight when I started (I was 269, and I'm 174 now). What is your plan for losing the weight?

Eep!! I did it!! Lol I mentioned it and he said okay without arguing! I told him why and he said he agrees and i wouldn't have anymore pains, which I made him feel bad about lol (I was hurting really bad 1 night and he wouldn't take me to er cause DS was asleep and he was tired)


Quoting AmberMerrell:

I know how that feels. It took me forever to talk my dh into letting me get rid of it & go back to condoms. He's not too excited about that, but he wants me to be happy & we're both hoping since I won't be dealing with these hormones I'll be better!




Quoting kmencl3210:

I'm seriously considering getting mine out too... I just got it in Feb and gained back like 6 lbs and can't lose anythigg plus I just don't like it. But I have to find another form of bc and get DH to agree to loosing the iud :/

Way to go! That's great you were able to lose weight with it! I just couldn't seem to lose mine so hopefully that was the problem cause it's gone now!

Really??? Crappp it hurt bad enough getting it put in that I felt like I was gonna pass out-- I have bad pain tolerance issues and when I feel a lot of pain I almost pass out (I forgot to take meds before going though lol) maybe ill just take some really strong pain killers before hand...

Have you tried myfitnesspal (website and app on a phone) it's pretty awesome. It will help count calories and you will be shocked by how many calories are in some of the foods we eat.
I am around the same weight and I have the same goals!
Myfitnesspal name is longbeachliz (I'm so original lol).
