Ko-LD, I am with you here. Only I've put on at least 20 lbs which will not budge. Can't starve myself to death, cause I'm hypoglycemic -- still I have gained and lost more 20 lbs than anyone I know! So I definitely know how to lose weight. But this is so different
I experienced a definitely different weight gain not long after my tick bite. I do have hypothyroidism, but I understand that this is because Lyme has attacked my thryoid, as it so frequenly does.
I am wondering and hoping if some of these issues will resolve on their own, as the Lyme is combatted?
And I have gained the most in places that were not a problem in the past: girth of my entire torso, huge belly (NEVER have I had this, but it started not long after my last bite), and my boobs (sorry gentlemen) have gotten almost huge (for me) I realize our bust gets larger when we have put on weight, but the size of THIS one is completely different than EVER in my past.

Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
What don't these nasty bugs cause?
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.
