Welcome, really glad you are here and I hope you keep posting. This place is an awesome support outlet
To tell you my story , 6 years ago I was on all sorts of psychiatric medicines that were to help me, all they did was make my condition worse and my weight ballooned to close to 200 lbs (on a 5ft frame). I went off my meds and dropped 40lbs and have felt wonderful since then, my mind is clear and I am in control of my life again
Last year I had a total hysterectomy also and have gained 30 lbs again but I wasn't thinking about my food choices or anything. I have now started a healthier dieting process and feel great. I don't take any hormones or synthetics either.
What I would do is research research everything in your life, see what is working and what isn't working for you..please keep us updated!

I've NEVER had to diet before or exercise.....I DON'T KNOW HOW TO !!!!!!!!!! I've taken myself off of Cymbalta, seems like that seems to veg me out.......I'm also on high blood pressure med and hormones (total hysterectomy last Nov.). My goal 130...I weigh now 151 and I'm only 5'2
