I'm new here but have used the app before,around 4 years ago,soon after I gave birth to my son and wanted to lose the baby weight. The app helped a lot and introduced me to calorie counting and so I love all of the baby weight,and even dropped to my lowest weight,pretty quick. I dont want to get into a great detail but I put some weight back on but was still sitting at a lower than my normal weight and was pretty slim and felt very good,better than ever before. Fast forward to last year,due to mental health issues I began using mirtazapine and oh my oh my. A month prior to going to the medication I was struggling with food and sleep due to anxiety and had dropped to a low weight and was tired a lot . But oh ny six month into the medication and I'm at my highest weight,EVER. Insane! It is like I was pregnant again. I specifically struggled with cards and sugar and have tried to come off the medication many times but withdrawals are too bad and interfering too much with my lifestyle/study/work/mum/friends/travel often etc. So with my psychiatrist we agreed that it is still too soon for me to come off of it. The past 3 weeks I Hve been doing better with my eating and I am ready to lose weight and have dropped a kilo thus far . Weight loss this times seems to be harder,maybe because of the medication or it is just my mind playing tricks and I need to give it more time. My biggest struggle is binging,I feel file throughout the day and not so hungry but at night I get extremely hungry . I try to chew gum and keep in mind my goal weight. Any tips to help with the hunger and anyone with a similar experience? I feel like it was actually easier losing my mummy weight than it is trying to lose my medication weight,lol .
Anyway,good luck everyone on your journeys and thanks in advance!
