Hi!

Hi,

I got married 9mths ago and was my lowest weight ever, 48kg. I looked hot :wink: but also a bit sickly. Since then I have put on 20kg!!!

Our scales broke about 6mths ago and I never bothered to get another, until now. I'm shocked at myself. Thankfully the medication I'm on (which I'm also blaming for the weight gain) is preventing me from getting depressed about this situation.

I jumped on the treadmill straight away and started eating healthy. It's been a week and I've lost 2kg. Yay, it's a start.

Hi Jolie,

Welcome to the forum!! Welldone on the 2kg weightloss thus far ;-)

How did u deal with the rapid 20kg weight-gain (mentally, emotionally)??? And wat type of medication, if u dont mind me asking, were u on? I was on anti-depressants for nearly 2 yrs and i know that that partly contributed to my weight gain! I was 60kg b4 i started on them.

Kat, I'm on anti-depressants. I think they make me eat more.
I honestly didn't realise how much weight I was putting on. I knew I was heavier than normal and needed to go up sizes in clothes, but the AD's were making me happy for the first time in years, so weight wasn't an issue.

I'm totally with u there!!! The AD's also had that effect on me. I love the buzz that i used to get after i took my medication- that warm, fuzzy feeling inside and nothing around u matters coz ur happy. As much as the AD's helped me, i decided to go off them in Jan this yr. I just wanted to see if i cud go it alone without having to depend on the pills for my "happy-fix". So in consultation with my shrink, i slowly came off them. And its been really good so far. I'm still working on some things with the depression, but its definitely getting better. Also, moving back home and being in close proximity to my family again has really helped (i was studying in Cape Town for 5 yrs while my family was in Joburg). I do miss the pills, but i'm happy with what i've achieved so far. Now, i'm moving to a country on a different continent in 6 days (Japan) and i'm incredibly anxious. I hope that the homesickness doesnt take me back to square one with the depression. But, i'm also excited at the same time. Even tho i'll be so far away from home,I'm just gonna stay positive and keep building on what i've achieved without the AD's so far.

Sorry for rambling........ :oops:
