Over the past four years while depressed I gained weight from the SSRI's(I tried six or seven diff. ones) AND the sendentary life I had while depressed. Now that I'm taking Wellbutrin SR (2x150mg) I have lost 20 lbs. since December. I will attribute that not only to the medication but also to the fact that I am up and moving again. Where as before I was only able to lie around on the couch and feel cruddy. I have been returning to the activities that I used to enjoy so much: surfing, swimming, cycling, etc. I know the dramatic weight loss is mostly a side effect from the medication but I am also proud of my return to physical activities.

I'm also much more aware of the foods I'm putting into my body. While in the depths of depression I only wanted comfort foods and bready carbos. Now I'm back on the veggie kick and eating more appropriate proteins for my body. Lots of fish and rice. So it truly is a combination of the meds AND my returned ability to enjoy life. Still climbing out of the pit. At least this time I finally have hope that I won't fall right back in.

Hope this is helpful. --phyl
