Here we go!

From late high school to early college, I gained about 55 pounds. I managed to lose all of that and maintain the loss for almost a decade until I started taking Celexa, which made me sleepy and hungry, and I gained 45 pounds. Quitting only initially resulted in about 5 pounds of loss.

I really liked the advice you gave on the No Motivation post. Congrats on losing those 15 lbs! I recently came back to SP and am really enjoying all the encouragement and support as I have a ways to go to reach my health and fitness goals. Have a great weekend!

Thank you for the comment on my blog "I May Have... WHAT...?!?!"
I've been on Adderall since the day I wrote that blog, and I have to say that you are absolutely right... there is no miracle drug. It gives me frequent headaches and makes me extremely tired on most days. However, I can also say that most of the time it does help me pay attention, and my mood swings have died out almost completely. I'm thankful for even just the stopping of the mood swings, since they were starting to kill my relationship.
I realize that you told me you also were diagnosed with ADD at 27. Do you take anything for it, and how does it affect you?
Thanks again!
