Hi all, long time no speaky!
I am back in the zone now after months of illness...... a house move..... an attempt at getting back to work....twice..... and a fairly major op 2 weeks ago.
Before I went into hospital I had had months of feeling exhausted, low and being ill all the time. I didn't want to go to my GP with "tired all the time" as I "knew" that it was all my fault for being fat.
Turns out I was really quite anaemic and needed a hefty dose of iron right away.
So now despite still recovering from fairly major surgery to my chest, I feel 1000 times better thanks to the iron!
So ladies PLEASE don't assume everything is weight related and "your fault", go and get the medical help you need!

Seconded, turned out I was extremely low on iron too and my tummy's flattened a lot since I started taking that! (I say that, I still have a belly and a lot of weight to lose, but I'm nowhere near as lethargic)

Hey guys, I can vouch for this too. I have heaps of medical issues;

Insulin resistance
Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (One ovary left)
Horrendous Hormonal Problems
Excess Facial Hair and Acne
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Depression & Anxiety
Exhaustion & Insomnia
Painful Joints
Terrible Immune System

And yet I weigh only 8 and a half stone, the optimum weight for my height and age (26 years).

So yes Mountain Walker... symptoms aren't always to do with your weight.
