Turns out it was caused by one of my bipolar meds-the Abilify. So my psychiatrist put me on topamax to cancel it out (Topamax has a weight loss side effect and can also be used as a slight mood stabilizer). So I've been taking that and... I'VE LOST 2 POUNDS
YAY! That's huge for me! I haven't lost an ounce in over a year-all I've done is gain. So I've gone from 180 to 178! A few more pounds and I have these awesome jeans I can perfectly fit into! I still have some the urge to binge but at least now I can control it plus we are still going up on the topamax dosage. I am so happy!
If your wondering how we figured it out. My weight gain started when I started Abilify over a year ago. And I have gone off it before-wasn't supposed to though. So that's how we figured it out.
