HI Marie,

I'm on both. Feel free to chat emoticon

I actually find that my thyroid issues are the ones stalling the weight loss, but I know that the meds are a factor too~

There are multiple teams. You will need to find one that fits for you. Look up teams, medical conditions (I think). I may have even found one under motivational teams. Look around and see what is a good match for your personality and goals.

Do you know the name of the team? That would be very helpful.

There are teams for people dealing with anxiety and depression. These topics are discussed openly and you will see a variety of success stories. Even people with severely limited mobility are making small changes that add up over time. It is important to realize the weight didn't appear overnight and will not disappear quickly, this is a lifetime committment to a healthy lifestyle. Best wishes, Pamela

I am on antidepressants and antianxiety meds as well as others. I am slowly loosing weight. With the depression I had gained a lot of weight. It doesn't help having fibromyalgia either. I have to reread the papers that come with my meds as I have gotten more prescribed and try to make sure none of them interfere with weight loss.

You can do all things you set your mind to. You can do all things through Christ that strengthens all. Challenge to remind myself of this daily. sparkpeople.com

I am looking for some encouraging stories about people out there that may be on antidepressant/antianxiety meds. and you have still been able to lose weight. Any tips? I know this is a private issue but any advice would be helpful. emoticon
