I have been on Zoloft for 6 years and have had weight gain (10kgs). My GP confirmed that this quite often could happen when taking antidepressents.
I have just joined Weight Watchers mainly because I need the help and support to lose weight.
Hi Slinky hypo-Welcome to HW!
I am also a member of weight watchers, I go to the gym and I have twice weekly sessions with a personal trainer. All this and I work full time in a place where I am quite physically busy- but the Zoloft weight is super hard to budge. I also needed someone to be accountable to and thought WW would be helpful and they have been, but both my consultant at WW and my pyschiatrist have told me I will have to work harder than the average Joe to lose the weight, as Zoloft weight is stubborn and doesnt like to move.
Again, welcome and I wish you all the best in your journey- I totally hear where you are coming from.
