Hi Allybooboo -
I just wanted to say that the threads generally get locked if they get too long because it starts to get difficult for people to navigate through them. So once a thread hits over 50 posts chances are it will soon become locked.
I am sorry !!
hey guys yea these forums are getting locked a lot weird because the first four we almost had 30 pages.
hope everyone is continually doing good!!!
honestly for me the weight is coming off i jumped on the scale again after 3 weeks and lost 5 more lbs.
so keep the faith !!!
Just wanted to see if anyone had been around...looks like our group is slowing down...
Tomorrow is the end of week 1 of Phase I of the South Beach Diet. I also started taking only 25mgs of Zoloft (which I just remembered I forgot to take this morning). My doctor likened the weight gain and attempt to lose to alcoholism and is insisting I see one of his therapists about it. I don't know what's up with him.
I do know that I miss carbohydrates!!!!! I'm not really big on eggs or having non-breakfast foods at breakfast so that part of it is hard for me. I just have to hang on for another week and then I can add whole wheat back to my diet. I can't wait!!!!
I hope everyone is well...
My doctor just was comparing losing weight to stopping drinking...I didn't really get that comparison either.
I've seen the scale budge a little on Phase I. It is tough!!!! All this other food is really rich and I'm not used to eating that way and now it's a little boring so I'm trying hard not to flame out. I am dreaming about bread though...oh, how I miss it.
It did take me about a year to lose my Zoloft weight but I will say that once it started coming off, it came off so you all hang in there...I've lost Zoloft weight...TWICE!!!
Gosh, I want to say I started noticing about three months in to being off the Zoloft but don't quote me on this. I wasn't really paying close attention because I was concentrating so hard on eating the right things but when it did start to come off, it came off quickly.
I completely understand about being nervous that panic attacks will come back and you'll have to go on Zoloft again. I worry about that with my OCD. That's why I'm still on 25 mgs. I think it's enough to keep my OCD in check and still allow me to lose some weight...but I'll tell...I'm really ticked that I have any weight to lose because of this stupid medication. Yes, it did save my life and help me through an unbelievably tough time but then again, I'm agitated that I gained most of the weight through no fault of my own but I'm the one having to sacrifice to lose it. If I had done this to myself, I might feel differently but I didn't. None of us did...but it's us that are having to pay the price and that makes me mad!!!!
