I was trying to add to this discussion. its my first time on here so i hope i am doing this right.  How long does it take for your metabolism to return to normal after going off zoloft?  I have been off of it for two months now and it is still extremely slow.  I follow a restricted diet, I cannot excercise at the moment because i hurt my knee trying to excercise on my mini-tramp.  I have an 11 month old so i can't always get to the pool.  anyway, in the past when i wanted to lose weight I would go on a diet and lose it.  Now its like pulling teeth to get it off.  My scale weight has not budged in a year, but I do seem to be fitting into things and I can see it coming off, yet very very slowly.  I went on Zoloft last February after my baby was born.  I went off it at the end of November.  Is my metabolism messed up for life?  And I am planning a wedding in June and I hate the way I look!  I have about 20 to lose.

I want to welcome you to the forum first of all. You have definately come to the right place to get answers. I never had a problem gaining weight with zoloft. Actually just the opposite. But I can imagine after having a child that your body probably went through a lot of changes. So it may just take longer.

I am sure though that somebody else will come along and be able to help you more than I can.

Have a wonderful night,

hugs,

Thank you for welcoming me to the forum! I don't believe its the pregnancy that is causing this difficulty losing weight. Most women return to their previous weight pretty easily. After I stopped the Zoloft I started to see a little difference, but still really slow, and still it is not showing up on the scale.

The scales can often be deceptive, especially if you are building muscle. Muscle weighs 4 x that of body fat. If you feel like you are losing then you probably are. Go by how your clothes fit you.
