Losing Weight on the Depo

I've had a few people tell me that the depo provera shot could be playing a factor in my stunted weight loss. I keep gaining and losing the same few pounds although I'm eating healthier and working out 4 days a week. Do any of you have any success stories of losing weight while on the depo shot?

What is Turbo fire? And did you begin to lose weight while on the depo?

Depo was one of many reasons I gained weight.  The messing with my hormones drastically, however, was why I stopped taking it 3 years ago.  I'm sure it's possible, but don't be surprised if you work harder to do it.

I'll find out if my essure procedure was successful next month. If so, I will have taken my last shot of depo and then hopefully the weight will start coming off easier.

I gained a lot of weight on depo also, but I wasn't holding myself accountable for my eating then either (like you are), so I don't really have a good example of doing well while on it.

Make sure you get that done!  I didn't and am now pregnant with #4.  I'm going for a tubal this time.

I, personally, used Depo for a while and I believe that not only did it make me gain weight, but also led to my endometriosis.  Sorry, I'm not a success story.  It also made my depression 10x worse.
