Good luck to you and hang in there. Please,do not stop your meds without your doc's OK. Let him know how much the weight gain bothers you. Hopefully you can find a medication that will work for you and minimize any weight gain. Some of the older drugs cause less weight gain. Geodon, a newer one can also cause less weight gain. You need to find that right balance. Don't give up!

Hi everyone, My name is Pagona, I'm 44, 5'2-3/4", I live in Southern California, But grew up in New Orleans. I'm a mom of 3 (Mine, His and Ours), (20,12,5) I currently weight 149.8 lbs, in September of 08 I was 188.2lbs I have two final weight goals, 138 and 128. I added the 2nd goal because it has been 21 years since I've been in my 120's. So for all I know these next 11lbs may be all I need to lose.
I hope to get to know as many of the team members as possible
Even when your day does not go the way you wanted it to, remember there is always tomorrow to start your day all over again.
Hi, my name is Faith. I am 5'3 and 170-172 down from 190. Being only 1 inch taller than my dad (1 foot than grandma) I am the shortest in my family. My 12 year old is about an inch taller than me, my 11 year old is as tall as me, and my 8 year old is getting there. I have almost allways been short and fat. Growing up, my family called me short fat phylis (grandmas name). At 16 I was a size 16. I met a boy that lived a mile away on a farm. Over that summer I walked to and from his house, worked on his farm, and did lots of other activities. I cut out sugar completely and watched what I ate. By the end of the summer I was a size 8. I managed to stay that way, with exception to being pregnant, untill 23 when I was diagnosed with manic depression and paranoia. The meds slowly started working on my weight untill I reached 190 at 27. I managed to stay at that weight somehow. Last year just before my 32nd birthday I seen myself half naked in a tall mirror..OMG!! I was disgusted. I worked for 2 months to lose weight, but because of my meds I only lost 2 pounds. My doc changed my meds and I dropped to 168 pounds. Since my mood changed he put me back on it and I gained 5 back in a week. I stopped all meds last week in hopes I can control this thing myself. I have lost 3 pounds and still working at it. When I reach my goal I will go back on meds if I need to. Hopefully by then I will have a better grip on weight loss.
