Default Ladies - did your drive come back when you lost weight....

For those of you who have zero sex drive....did it come back once you started losing weight? I have no medical reason for my lack of drive.....and I'm just hoping someday I will want it....even just a tiny bit.

I am so glad someone posted this. I, unfortunately, don't have an answer as I am still so far away from a great loss.

I did hear Dr. Oz say that obesity affects sex drive because your hormones are all out of whack, which would make sense.

I think it helps to get in a good weigh in. I have lost 59 lbs in the past 8 months, but it is a day in and day out following my food plan that helps the most as my sanity returns.

For me, absolutely. I've lost 40lbs and still have 30 or so to go. The difference has been marked. I feel so much better in my own skin and my self-esteem has gone way up. My husband could care less how much I weigh, but when I feel sexier he definitely notices I'm more interested. I don't know if its hormone related or simply self-esteem related, but my depression and my libido have improved dramatically.

I have to agree with edesjarlais. I lost 92ish lbs now and its not thats I really ever had a problem in that area, but I definitely feel a lot sexier than I had.

i dont' know, i know i still i have the drive, but find myself not doing anything because i am feeling fatter lately so it has slowed but only because i dont' feel sexy, my hubby tells me all the time i am and he loves my body, but I want to FEEL sexy when he tells me that. i am hoping to get there some day. so my drive will go up even more and he will be blown away.........

Maybe my hormones were out of whack but I used to have a bigger drive when I was heavier.

Me too. I am assuming it's because when my PCOS was in full flower, my testosterone is heavier. So I guess that's two things that suck about losing weight--sex drives go down and I have to deal with TOM again!

Though I haven't lost enough to see a dramatic improvement, I can say YES - for me, the weight definitely negatively impacted my sex drive.

Before I gained so much weight, I had a fairly high sex drive. But as the weight came on, I felt ugly and gross and much of my sex drive dwindled. As I'm starting to lose the weight now, it's starting to get better, but I still have a long way before I'm "back to me" again.

Feeling sexy and confident and WANTED will do wonders for your love life!

Are you kidding about your sex drive going DOWN when you lost weight. Man, thirty pounds down and feeling great I am having whoopee with honey a heck of a lot more. He is enjoying my body as much as I am. Hang in there, you WILL want sex much more....just you wait!

I'm with nelie and shmead - my drive has dipped to dangerously low since I've lost weight. I used to be um... "interested" literally all the time... now? Not so much. It's not good and I'm working on it. =/

updated to add: I don't have pcos... recently got my physical. =/ I'm just broken

My sex drive was low for a bit.... but i have no problem at all in that area.. if you dont feel confident naked .. just do what i did.. really cute.. little negliche (you can sometimes find them at wal mart for 20 dollars) it covers your tummy.. brings the girls out, i always feel much sexier in that than naked lol plus most guys like the bedroom wear!
good luck!
