Ireggular periods: If you had normal periods before the miscarriage, then that would be a concern. If your periods were always irregular, than ok. However, being overweight and poor nutritional status may be a risk factor for irregular period, so weight loss is certainly recommended for that as well s many other health reasons. See your Dr. to help you lose weight as well as assess the periods. Best wishes. ...Read more

1st pregnancy test: You must rule out pregnancy 1st. However if you are exercising heavily that may cause weight loss & missed periods (amenorrhea). Having one miscarriage doesn't necessarily mean you are more likely to have another (it is more common that a predetermined genetic defect in the fertilized egg that implanted in your uterus caused spontaneous abortion to occur. Get a pregnancy test asap & see a doctor. ...Read more

Concerted effort: Effort under guidance is the best. I strongly recommend bariatric surgery; through a program though!. Teamwork including dietician, exercise therapist, sleep specialist, psychologist etc are generally needed for the success. The oft heard success stories on various diet commercials or exercise ones are less likely to be successful en masse, most likely to help is your motivation, diet &exercise. ...Read more
