My name is Shelly. I just started gaining weight after I got married in 1993. I was always a skinny child all my life so I never knew what overweight was until now. I have bipolar depression have been on medicine ever since the age of 19. It just seemed that this last year I seemed to gain a large amount of weight and I don't know where it came from. I had reacently switched medicines and had asked my doctor if the medicines had something to do with it and he said no. I had my physical with my doctor to find out if something was wrong and there was nothing wrong either outside of my blood pressure being high and I usually have very low blood pressure. I used to weigh 130 my whole childhood it seemed until after I got married then I was 152. Then recently in February I had gone to my doctor and he had weighed me and found out I was 211 when just that January I was 180. That was when I had asked him about the medicines. I Then just started to feel really depressed and down about myself, I never was that big before. I couldn't fit into any of my pants. I could barely walk up my steps without feeling so winded, and I have exercise and heat induced asthma already as it is. I have a bulging disc problem in my back and another problem with my back and and this extra weight I put on doesn't help it any. I knew I had to do something to get this weight off before something serious happens. Besides, I just wanted to fit into my clothes again and feel better about myself and be happy again.

    Hey, I saw on the message board where you quit smoking. A big woohoo for you. I quit in 2007. I love the way I smell now. Have you noticed a change in your face color (maybe pinker instead of yellowish) and your teeth (whiter)?

    I have a friend who is on bipolar medicine. She had her doctor change her meds and she has lot weight. She is exercising now and is feeling better. I think she monitors herself more closely for other side effects too. Overall she is doing great!
