> I lost abot 50 pounds I surely wouldn't have wanted to lose anymore then that. It put me at about 114. I was putting weights in my pockets when I went to the doctor because I didn't want her to take me off of the Topamax. One time I was going to put weights in my shoes, lucky I didn't because she took my shoes off, lol. A couple of weeks ago they put me on Seroquel also and I noticed I am eating a lot more. I haven't weighed myself yet but I don't want to be 160 pounds again for sure. Somewhere on a website I saw the percentage of body weight that you lose on Topamax and it was pretty high, I can't remember how high exactly. If I find the site I will send it to you.

Oh, this brings back memories LOL
There was a time when they were trying so hard to help me to gain weight... when I was married I was the same height I am now, 5'6", but I weighed all of 96 or 97 pounds (when I went into hospital to have my first daughter the nurses were so patronising, told me to come back in a few months, after all it took nine months to have a baby and just because my doctor told me I was pregnant, it didn't mean I would have the baby right away. I would have to wait the same time as everyone else... I weighed all of 124 and still could tuck in my blouse and looked totally ordinary... I was in a panic that they would not let me stay <g>
My doctor was so sorry that I 'had to have this baby'.. said I finally looked human!!!!!
made me feel great, let me tell you :{
Eventually they decided it was time that I do something about this weight problem. Every week I had to go to the dietitian at the hospital and she would go over my week's eating record and I would have to be weighed.. I would wear almost everything I owned in hopes that I would be able to get past the ordeal by scales...
far cry from the time when I would go into paroxysms of terror at the sight of a scale!!!!
Her office was in the basement of the hospital and sooooooo cold... she would insist that I remove the layers of clothing once she caught on to the ruse.... sigh

Now I look back to the time when I thought 160 was a really great weight to have reached as an accomplishment in lowering my weight... how things change...

I would not consider coming of Topomax... first for the headache consideration... life without migraine is sheer heaven ... and then for the weight consideration...
still not losing hair now that I have the vitamin and biotin cocktail sorted out...
and everything else seems to be working too...

but I do worry about returning to being just more than a walking skeleton again....

kat who I guess is never happy
