I once lost 48lbs only to gain it back plus some, been trying again, down 20, but been a while since I lost anymore. I have been struggling with depression, anxiety, and sadness, and fear I am just going to end up gaining the weight back.
I used to weigh 135 lbs and am 5 ft 6 inches tall. Since my total knee replacements in January of this year I have gained 50 lbs! My behavioral therapist says I self medicate with food. This is a HUGE issue for me! This is deep rooted in me as I didn't always have enough to eat as a child. I feel a deep sense of sadness when I control my portions and feelings of abandonment. I'm a hot mess! LOL Can anyone relate?
Last Dr was careful to give me something that didn't cause weight gain .hated it!
I had bariatric surgery 4 years ago, so while I do not gain too much weight with medication for depression - I also rely on my doctors to keep in mind that I don’t want to take meds that will make me gain weight. That’s why they took my off Paxil and got me on Prozac. I gained like 50 lbs on Paxil, I have only gained 3 or 4 lbs on Prozac and Xanax.
I went to my Dr for help losing weight I was at 220 my biggest weight ever and tried a lot to lose it. Nothing worked. I was sick of being over weight. Dr was great. She's a pa and I have found I like her better than my actual MD Lol. But she put me on wellbutrin and it helped a lot. Lost 40lbs and felt a lot better. Should talk to your Dr and see if they can help
