Slower weight loss second time round?


Regular Member
Hiya All

I've been weighed in tonight and lost 4lbs which is great, but it takes me to only 15lbs in 5 weeks which is a lot slower than on LL. I've had 8lbs, 2lbs, 1lb, 1lb and 4lbs tonight.

My CDC is going to talk to Cambridge because it may be that the meds I need to take during my period (mefenamic acid and transanemic acid) make me retain weight, but I wondered if its just a metabolic thing.

I started LL this week last year, so in the past year I've lost 4 stones, gained three stones and lost 1 stone.

Any thoughts?

I have just looked it up and these are the side effects of mefenamic acid :-

Along with their useful effects, all medicines can cause unwanted side effects, which usually improve as your body adjusts to the new medicine. Speak with your doctor if any of the following side effects continue or become troublesome.
Feeling or being sick, tummy pain, heartburn, diarrhoea, swelling feet or lower legs, headache, dizziness, nervousness or depression, drowsiness, problems sleeping, numbness in your hands or feet, tiredness, general feeling of being unwell, disturbance in vision, ringing or buzzing in the ears.

The swelling in the lower legs or feet could be odema which is water rention.

Hope this helps!
