Hi,
I've been doing searches on the internet and found a few topics related to zoloft and weight gain on this message board. I was wondering if anyone had any input on my situation. I weaned off zoloft last October. I went on it for post partum depression. I am still approximately 10-12 pounds overweight. It seems like my metabolism has been altered or is it possible it's just age? I'm 33. It seems like no matter what I do I can't seem to get this weight off. I could fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans last summer, but gradually put on weight while on the zoloft and still can't fit into them now. I'm just looking for any kind of advice or hope that with time my body will get back to normal. I don't feel comfortable in my own skin and definitely don't feel comfortable in my clothes. I'm wearing sweats a lot and when I do wear pants they're tight. I keep refusing to buy new clothes because I think I'll get the weight off, but it doesn't seem to be happening.
By the way, since November I've been going to a personal trainer who weighs me and checks my fat percentage. Both continued to go up. They seem to possibly be stabilizing now, but the weight is definitely not coming off like it should.
Thanks!

Hi gettingwell,  Welcome to healing well forum.  Glad to have you.  I was on Zoloft for several years and had some weight gain also.  Your right it is hard to get off and once you reach your 30's it is ten times harder to lose weight.  I managed to lose mine by exercise and cutting carbs and sugars out of my diet.  We have a thread on Zoloft and weight loss if your interested in posting in there.  There are many people that have this same complaint...I will post the link for you.  I hope to hear more from you in the future...Take care

The age thing makes a huge difference I'm also a Weight Watchers gal lost 45 pounds on it during college and when the weight starts up 'm back on it again but excercise is more important weight is just a number being in shape is what really matters.

Age makes a difirence but its not huge, ur metabilsim is affected by many things including how much you excersize your body. i lost 12 pounds durring a diet i could not loose more than 12 pounds tho for some reason. when i stoped the diet i returned all the wieght i lost , with 2-3 extra pounds as an added bonus. i gave up for now on loousing wieght.
