I’m not trying to brag about my weight.  I’m just happy to finally be losing some.

Back in 1006, I was put on anti-depressants.  That started my weight gain.  It was awful but it got worse last year.  My doctor changed my meds. and I gained 20 pounds in one month.  I was devastated.  I had gotten up to 220 pounds.  I was more depressed than ever.  I told the doctor that I wasn’t taking those pills any more and he had better give me something that won’t make me gain anymore weight.  He did change my meds. and he also gave me some diet pills to take.  Within two months I had lost 15 pounds.  When I was done taking the pills I tried for a month to lose on my own.  It didn’t work, but I hadn’t gained any weight back.  In January I asked the doctor if I could have just one more month on the diet pills.  I didn’t take them every day, but I did take them.  I have been out of diet pills for a month and I am still losing weight.  I’m down to 187.  I feel so much better.  This morning I grabbed a pair of jeans out of my dresser and put them on.  They were a little tight but not bad.  I asked my husband to tell me what size the jeans were because I couldn’t read the tag.  He said they were a size 12.

I’m not trying to put anyone down about their weight.  I am just so glad that, after trying for so long, I am finally getting down.  I still have about 50 or so more pounds to lose but so far it’s a start.  I’m not going to take anymore prescribed weight loss meds, I am praying that I will continue to lose on my own.

Love it
