First things first...get to your doctor and talk about the never ending depression. You can't be stable if your depression is worsening, yes? Once your mood does stabilize, then start working on your healthy eating and "lifestyle changes" such as getting out for even a 15 minute walk....even a short one will boost the good energy.

I can totally relate on menopause killing your metabolism....killed mine too! I just went very low carb and have been successful losing 20+ pounds since the beginning of the year. It IS possible to be on psych meds, menopausal AND lose weight. It's like having a second or third part time job, but I got a little OCD about it and figured out a way to make it work.

You'll have to find what works for you, but get that depression taken care of first then start with small steps on the other stuff. AND super congrats for stopping smoking! That's a huge accomplishment!

Ketones make everything better.
Better sleep. Better mornings. Better energy.
Better fat loss. Better strength. Better mood.

emoticon to the team. I have been where you are and it is not fun. Maybe you need a medication change. I would go to see the doctor and ask about it.

I've been stable, on meds for six years.
However, the quality of my "stability" has slid lower and lower into immobilizing depression.
I'm 50 and quit smoking and I no longer seem to have a metabolism. I also have been drinking too much of late. Add a depressant to treat depression. Brilliant.
I'm not sure how well I'll do with this program
