Kathleen also struggled to keep her bladder under control while milking cows.

She said: “Drinking lots of water is good and everything but when you’re there and your bladder is full and you’re doing this and you’re really…

“You could leave the living room for a few minutes but it would take all this off and run to the bathroom and back out.

“You tend to just hope that your bladder will hold up.

“Two big kids with big heads, it takes a toll on a woman and then as you get older, that situation gets a lot worse.”

But at her weight, Kathleen has lost 8lbs and her water intake is increasing last week.

She said: “What I’ve really noticed about myself is that I feel stronger about myself, which to my surprise.

“I was hoping you would give me exercises and stuff about the pelvic floor muscles but they really make sense because that also really strengthens.

“I could find myself going for a walk outside, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s great walking’.

“And then I went for a jog and said, ‘Oh my God, I feel like I have to squeeze my bladder’.

“But I think average weight pushes you down a lot.”


Dr Sumi Dunne on the board of directors told Kathleen she would get more support in this area with a health check.

“It’s pressure on the abdomen, on the abdominal area, as you correctly said, carrying weight around your belly can put that pressure on the bladder, which, along with childbirth, let’s go,” she explains. Add to that exercise on the platform, you’ll feel like you’re about to leak.

“It’s great to hear that at the start of these resistance exercises you can start to see benefits as all of this is the power of core and core muscles including the floor. your pot.

“I want to take it a step further with you because again when you’re going through menopause and again, in this particular case, you’ve been driven into it – the lack of estrogen also makes you more vulnerable. less strong pelvic floor.


“To help further, we’d like you to see a physiotherapist interested in women’s health and the pelvic floor.”

And in this moment, nutritionist Aoife Hearne confessed to herself.

She said: “I can go with my friend Kathleen because I tell you I attended a wedding and I can’t dance anymore either.

“It’s a serious problem for women.”

Kathleen’s goal for the next week is to drink a quart and a half of water a day, and her weight loss goal is 2 lbs.
