I have received so much help from this site and I only became a member hours ago. Wow. I was reading about my medication and it's side effects. My problem is I don't get hungry, and other side effects that I have found contributed to my weight gain. One even causes weight gain. hmmmm All this time I thought the reason you get heavy was because you ate too much. (Boy was that a a misconception.)
I wish I had the luxury to ask why we are not told that if you don't eat or medication can cause weight gain that it's not just because you like hot fudge sudaes (which I do). ( on a rare occasion)
But now that I'm smarter than I was I wonder if I eat my 1200 cal if I'm only defeating myself because I'm on these medications and perhaps I should talk to the dr. (what a novel idea)
I look forward to reading, and sharing on this website.
