Healthy Grandma

I gained over 100 pounds in a year due to medication prescribed for me for depression. It has been 10 years and I am still not able to get the weight off. I have never been athletic so exercise is quite foreign to me. I love to cook and to eat. Up until the depression, I was able to limit my snacking, but now it is out of control. With the increased weight, I have developed other health problems.

My Goals:
My goals:
1. Get out of plus size clothing.
2. Become healthier by losing 80-100 pounds.
3. With weight loss, hope to improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
4. To be healthy for my grandchildren and to regain my self-esteem.

My Program:
I realized that most of my weight gain resulted from anti-depressant medication I began taking when I suffered a nervous breakdown. While I have learned to control my anxiety, I am still taking an anti-depressant. Although it has been changed, I noticed I am still having difficulty losing weight even with limiting my food intake. I am meeting with my physician this week to discuss more natural forms of medications in place of pharmaceuticals. My plan is to eliminate or at the very least limit the amount and type of pharmaceuticals I have been prescribed, continue to eat healthier, practice portion control and exercise.

Are you still around. I thought I would visit your page, but it looks like its been a while since you have responded. I hope you are still trying and giving it a good shot to loose the weight. I know what depression meds can do. They prescribed them to me for pain, yet it said they were used for depression and the weight came with them.
