Thx in advance to anyone who takes their time to help. Self esteem is important to women, lose that and you will surely bring other problems into your life! I am a 32/f, 5'4, and as of tonight 164.5 lbs. OMG! This is not a good weight for me and I feel awful about it. A little history... I have spent a lot of time in the bodybuilding/fitness cliques and for about five yrs. most would say I was at a personal best, even a plastic surgeon called friends to talk about my body structure. I felt strong. 125-130 lbs. My life, like anyone elses, has had ups and downs. I had to leave my home after a break up 2yrs ago and was feeling the impact of my assembly line job.. extreme neck pain and headaches. I would go to the dr., get prescribed anti-depressants and ibuprofen..things stayed the same. Yes, I do not work out like I used to but..over the past 6 mos. I have gained at least 20 lbs. I am aware of food intake and regularly still do cardio and lots of walks. I had my blood drawn, i do not know what showed up but slightly high cholesterol. I have been told I am now borderline diabetic. I know my body well. This weight gain is not right. I currently take Lexapro, Ambien, Hydrocodone 7.5, occasional xanax, Maxalt as needed(headaches). I am supposed to be on more things for my bad discs and headaches but I feel overmedicated as it is. The Lexapro is only b/c I honestly feel depression b/c of my body image. What is going on?? Doctors tend to look at me and say, OH! You are young, healthy.. huh?? My body hurts, my thoughts are scattered, I feel so stiff. Is it the pills I am on? What could this be:eek:
