      Hi Lyn Some HRTs do have weight gain as a side effect so it may be an idea to check the Patient Information Leaflet that came with the tablets to see if this is the case with the ones you are taking. If so then it is quite difficult to lose the weight as it is being caused hormonally. However you can check your diet as well, many women find going on a low carb diet very helpful and remember not to cut calories to drastically as this can cause weight gain too! Check out the Low GL Diet or the Paleo Diet for some ideas.
