    This is for the ladies, please.
    My apologies if this is too personal but I am really interested to know if anyone has
    experienced this.

    For the last two or three years, prior to joining SW, I seemed to have had a weak bladder problem and if I ran, sneezed, coughed or even laughed it could be embarrassing. I just put this down to my age and the fact that I had four children and did not give it much thought. A supply of good pantie liners were a must!
    It has recently dawned on me that I no longer need them and I can do everything without the thought of any protection.
    I can only put this down to my weight loss as I have not done anything else. I can only say that I am delighted!
    I am really interested to know if anyone else had experienced this.
    Thanks all.

    I didn't have exactly the same problems but I did find I was having to go to the loo quite a lot - to the extent that my GP referred me to a specialist. That was early last year. I never did see the specialist as after I'd lost about a stone the problem went.

    It could be because all that extra weight was putting more weight on your bladder as well?

    Yes, I think that must be it, like pregnant women tend to constantly run to the loo.
    So, that is yet another reason why I never want to put weight on again!
