I don't know...
heres another update. Everyone I know says they think i have lost a few punds but i know they are just trying to give me support. I've only been on the topamax for a month now i don't think that was enough time to lose any wieght.
I have noticed I am less hungry for breakfast though, and before i was like starving by the time i woke up for breakfast. I just eat a bagel now and a glass of coke (still working on ditching my cold caffine) I still don't eat lunch, or if i do its very light, usually a salad.
It pisses me off that I ahev to live me life watching everything i eat and staying this big becuase of my matabolism, but people think i eat alot.
Somebody the other day compared me to his brother who was fat and said "my brother will eat a half pound of feta cheese at a time..." and i'm thinking i would never do such a thing.
There is some people who dont care if they are fat and eat whatever, then there are people like me who dont wanna be fat but were doomed either gentically or matabically like I am.
i have very little faith in this topamax. the doc says it's got a side effect of 70-80% weight loss, but there is no magic pill. At this rate im destined to die.
