Default It's a great DAY!!

So a month and 1/2 or so ago, I was put on antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds. I was a little nervous because I kept reading about how these caused weight gain and all. So today I went for my check-up. I have lost 13 lbs in a month!! That is after a few stumbles over holiday, and a trip to NOLA where I had to indulge in a few no-no's. Oh yeah, and my BP is down 20 points! I think I need to quit weighting several times a day so I can enjoy the impact of weight lost in a month....lol. Thanks for reading.....had to rave to someone who would understand!

that is great news! looks like you are doing fantastic in your weight. I know for me, I tend to be an emotional eater so definitely stabalizing moods can have an effect. keep up the good work with the good attitude!

Yes, I am on South Beach and loving it. It is the first plan ...way of eating that I can stick to. I've had my slips, of course, but nothing major at all! My next biggest challenge is making sure I get enough water....I try, I really do, but sheesh! The cravings have not been terrible, knock on wood. Thanks for commenting and the nice words!

Woohoo congratulations on your weight loss!!! Try not to weigh yourself more than once a week. Weighing yourself several times a day is kind of crazy lol.

Congratulations on your progress...that is awesome!!! I don't think weighing yourself several times a day is "crazy" as mel put it, but it is probably a little obsessive. I do it sometimes to track water weight gain, but I have noticed when I do it, it tends to be counter-productive.
