Remember last spring when I went on WW? I STARVED myself, excercised my a$$ off for 12 weeks. I didn't lose a thing. I switched anti psychotic drugs and poof! I lost 14 pounds. Many many many many many anti depressants and anti psychotics cause weight gain, not to mention making it EXTREMELY difficult to lose. Apparently, paxil, effexor and luvox are the LEAST likely to cause weight gain (some say).

You're most likely right that it's the meds causing this. The BC can often cause a bit of weight gain in the beginning, but I don't think it's supposed to add a lot of lbs.

I wish I could give you better news. If you find a solution, let me know. I've got a good 30 lbs that I need to shed. Talk about NO waist - sheesh! When I was a teenager I had a 26 inch waist. Huh. Now, my hourglass looks more like a straight glass.

Remember, your beauty on the inside shines through - always. You will always be beautiful to us, no matter what you weigh.

I would say keep up with what you're doing, but don't stress. Keep up with your exercise. Are you doing resistance training? You can even use a can of soup or bottled water or a can of pop as resistance.

Tons of hugs cause I've been there,
A.
