I think others may relate. I am on 4 (yah cause 1 isn't bad enough) drugs that have weight gain as a side effect, I need all 4 drugs to live-literally-and I have gained over 100 pounds in the last 2 years. I have been fit and very thin (thanks genetics) my whole life (35 years) and now I don't know what to do when I can't exercise (medically, literally again). Any healthy recipes or tips you can give me? And I drink water and black or herbal tea ALL day long... The drugs literally again (not excuses lol) take away the "full feeling" (which is nothing more than a chemical in your brain) so I never feel satisfied. I have tried watching portions, recording what I eat and when. The thing is I can't move (walk or exercise in any form). My doctor today gently said I may need to just accept I will be big for the rest of my life, and that fat doesn't mean unhealthy, especially in my conditions where the illness outweighs (no pun intended) the weight issue. But, I keep gaining weight and that is what scares me. First it was just 25lbs. Then oh 50, wow. Now over 100 I want to cry. Not because I hate the fat, not because I have had a drop in self esteem or any of that stuff. Just because I don't want to keep getting bigger because it makes it harder to move and with limited ability to move in the first place.... Sorry, I needed to vent. Maybe there is no help... or my doctor would have told me today? I had my annual and was weighed and put on almost 50 pounds- yet my clothing all still fits so I was surprised! I didn't think I had gained. I keep thinking I have stabilized that this higher weight # and then it goes up again! *Why can't drugs have side effects like loosing weight and younger skin?! LOL Thanks for listening to me rant. Do you understand? Share your story in the comments, I would love to read your thoughts.
