Constant weight gain. Eating healthy and exercising. Undergone hysterectomy and on patch for hormones. How to reduce weight?

I had to have a small bowel restructure one year ago. I had a cyst that had crushed my intestines. I have done very well since but I have gained almost 40 pounds. I am watching what I am eating and excersizing regularly but still seem to be gaining. I had went through a hysterectomy in 2007 and have been on the patch for hormones -that is the only thing that i can think of that I have started in the last year. is there some thing else I can do?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns and that you have had recent surgeries and have been healing from the same. The hormones could be contributing to the weight gain. There are two ways to lose weight:

1. Eat right - and healthy. Which might mean that you need to consult a nutritionist.
2. Exercise regularly - 4 times a week for 30-40 min per session and it should include both cardio and weights.

You may also want to see a psychiatrist to help with the anxiety about losing weight. I hope you get yourself on the track to recovery and a healthy weight as soon as you can. I hope this helped.

Take care and have a lovely day!
