Default officially back to where I was before the medication change (and weight gain!)

I had lost 40 lbs a few months back and I went on this medication (zyprexa) that is a huge weight gainer, I was lucky to only gain 10 lbs in the 3 months I was on it. but, I had a 3 week stall but this week I finally got a whoosh and lost 3.5 lbs bringing me back to a solid 40 lbs lost!

My ticker is so happy! *sqeee*

Now I can finally work on getting down to 50 lbs lost so I can post a new progress pic!

That's wonderful - it is so disheartening when a medicine causes a weight gain. It's not fair to gain when eating well! I am glad to hear that you are losing again. YAY,

Good for you in hanging in there, Lottie.

Move ticker, move!

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.
