I started taking Zoloft for depression about a month ago. It helped my depression, but I've been eating everything in sight. So last week, I weaned off the Zoloft and am now taking Lexapro. The point I'm trying to get to is that I have gained 5 pounds in a month. I look at myself in the full length mirrow and I'm disgusted. When I graduated from high school, 20 years ago I wore a size 3 and now I'm headed towards a size 22. What on earth have I done to my body?? How did I get here?? I have a hard time believing at this point that I will get to my goal (which 150 lbs, not 115 lbs). It just seems so unattainable. I need a lot of support!!

    I don't know what to eat anymore and I have fibromyalgia too, so working out is so hard for me. I feel so sore the next day that I can hardly move. I will walk every day, either outside or on the treadmill at the Y. That will be my 1st one thing. Thanks ladies.

    pick one positive change to concentrate on -- one that you can do every single day -- water, walking, using the stairs, something.....and do that every single day. Make other changes, but don't skip on your 1 thing.

    You can do this! Even though some days we just don't feel like it....

    You have our support. I have struggled and decided 2 years ago to accept my size. I was convinced I could not lose weight. I have been on antidepressants and gained in addition to my over eating. After a 45 pound weight loss I can say it wasn't the antidepressants or menopause. It was inactivity and eating when I was stressed or board. You can do it. This site for me has been crucial to my weight loss. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!
