The last couple years have found me struggling to lose weight. To no avail. I have exercised. And exercised. And exercised.
Nothing has changed. I have lost a few inches, but they come back lickety split, and no pounds leave.
I have heard before about medications, especially psychiatric meds, causing weight gain. But I didn’t believe them. Even when I was told particular meds might get me. I saw that as an excuse that I wouldn’t need.
I was wrong. I went off one of my medications, and started another one, and my appetite dropped in half. Literally. I went from eating foot long subs and still wanting to eat, to eating half of one and giving the rest to my daughter. I am seeing this over and over.
The holidays came. I ate more than I should, but still less than I was, but the pounds haven’t really moved, though there has been some inches lost.
I need more help. I am doing better, but I can’t quite do this on my own.
I decided to look into a popular program that has worked for me in the past, but couldn’t quite swallow the cost–until I found out my insurance company will pay for almost all of it!!
So here I am, all signed up and ready to go to my first meeting Monday night! It will mean a change for me, and by extension my family, but I think it will be good. We can all eat a little, or a lot, healthier Monday and every day!
Wish me luck!!Survive til you Thrive!
