1 year ago last summer i discontinued depression meds after being on them for a year. during the final 5 months of the meds i experienced a rapid weight gain of about 30#. it was so rapid i developed stretch marks. Finally feeling more like myself this last fall I have tried to get rid of the excess weight. While i am not following a specific weight plan I have eliminated white flour, sugar and most red meat, usually concentrating on fish and chicken. I have also been working out 5 days a week, from what was previously a pretty sedentary life. I am only 24 so thought my metabolism would click and i would lose the weight farily easily. So far, not ONE lb. lost. I have been working at this for two months. I try to tell myself that I am happy to be living a healthier life style, but i am getting really frustrated. My skin is also much oilier and broken out, a problem I never had as an adolscent. I feel like this is some type of endocrine system or thyroid problem. but with my bad experience on depression meds i hate to return to the dr and would like to hit this through diet. does anyone have any suggestions?
