Welp, I gave it my best shot off birth control to try and concieve. I've been off BC since the middle of May. I went from 169 to 179lbs in 1 month of being off the pill.
I went from 210 to 169 while on BC fairly effortlessly eating a 1500 calorie average diet.
The last 3 weeks I have been eating 1200 calories a day diet and today I weigh myself and I am 182 pounds. I am still gaining weight.
So, I give up.. I give in, I am back on birth control. I just have to remember that the best thing I can do right now is stay on BC and lose the weight so I can conceive naturally once I get more weight off.
Whatever the reason is, I simply cannot lose unless I am on BC. Oh, and since being off BC, I have acne all over my neck and body. No doubt my testosterone is high again. While on BC I have clear, beautiful skin.
So, I just took my day 1 pill to day. Can't wait for the acne to clear up and for the weight to start dropping again.
