Re: progesterone and weight loss
You know, it's funny you started this thread. In November I went on the depo provera shot, a mainly progesterone form of birth control, and though I stopped exercising, I kept losing the weight at about a 1/2 lbs to 1 lbs a week...Well, I am very poor so when March came around I didn't have the money to get my renewal shot, but they say that you have a month where it's still in your system, so I didn't get it, and kept dropping the weight exercise free. All of a sudden in April I started notciing my weight slowly climb back up and now it's the beginning of July still no depo provera, and I'm 10 lbs heavier than I was in February, and I've been back to exercising for a month without seeing a single lbs drop. So yeah, I have a feeling that there is some truth in that.
