So I started met the day I got my BFP but my doctor told me to keep taking it. I've lost about 8 lbs in 2 weeks but I don't know if that's from food aversion. But honestly I do think some is from the met.

metformin is mostly used to regulate the insulin sensitivity of the body. Although insulin is the key to mostly all fat production and blood sugar control in the body you cant just lose weight using metformin.Plus the side effect for some people can be hard to manage. It is good for PCOS so there that. I would suggest you start IF for the weight loss it works wonders. Take care love baezor out. :D <3

I was in a similar situation. Keep up the efforts! Some things that worked for me:

- Get off of sugar and alcohol. Be honest with yourself and spend at least 60 days cutting it all out!
- Are you willing to try out some supplements? There's been a lot of research on keto diets helping with weight loss and one way to get into a keto diet. Keto diets can really help with weight loss and I used a good MCT oil in my coffee to help with it.
- Portion control. Throw out all your big plates and bowls and get smaller ones.

If you work hard at it, you won't need metformin at all :)
