I would try and cut out as much of the junk as you can. Replacing chocolate with greek/natural yoghurt & fruit is one example. Also, exercise is really important. Losing weight when you are on AD's can be really hard but its worth persevering with. Even if you only lose 1 pound a week... thats a stone in 3 and a half months.
lol I forget that stones are a British thing. 14 pounds = 1 Stone. Stones are an old unit of weight that people used for selling heavy stuff like potatoes hundreds of years ago and it kinna stuck here. When an American person says they weigh 168 pounds I think it sounds a lot but when I convert it into 12 Stone... I know its the same as me!
Sorry for the confusion guys!
P.S Its great to be back
I, too, have gained a considerable amount of weight,,,15 lbs. I am on 15mg of Lexapro. I still don't have the energy to get up and go to the gym. I suffer from anxiety and depression. Why am I not motivated? I just increased from 10 to 15mg two weeks ago.
Is there any light in my future? I always use to work out. I haven't since March 2008. Can anyone give me some advice. I start weight watchers for a couple of days and then I say "who cares?" But, I do care. Help!!
I am going to make an appointment to have my mouth wired shut....so not even a straw can get threw..............do they still do that surgery, wire you jaw closed. Ouch.
I understand very well folks, don't give up the battle. It is a tough one I know so very well.
