Hey, Gracie! Haven't heard from you in a while! Glad to hear you are still out there. I kinda gave up on posting for a while. The thread that we were on at first kinda turned into a "I have time to work out for hours each day" type thread, which I have maybe 45 minutes I can slide in there if I plan. I am maintaining, but need to get back into the LOSING!
Don't know about the "pill" thing. I went off the pill for about six months to see if that would help, and I didn't notice a big drop when I got off. What I did notice is really horrible TOM symptoms and it seemed like I binge ate more when I was OFF, than on. I do know that the whole premise of the pill is that it tricks your body into thinking it's pregnant, which controls the release of eggs. It could be a factor and I think you may want to try a different dosage.
Well, good to hear you are out there and still trying.
