I started taking metformin on June 28. I weighed 208 pounds. I weighed myself this morning and I was at 198 - that's 10 pounds. The only change I made was taking the pills (and I haven't been as diligent counting calories). Now that's a motivator!!
I'm finding that menopause and aging has it ups and downs - there are good days and great days, but I'm starting to settle into the changes and revel in the ways my body has improved!
