I would still tell your T that your are worried that you might be doing this not eating thing as a possible SI thing, or at the very least to punish yourself maybe. But that still all in all you do feel that you need to lose weight. I get that. And for the record sometimes baby weight although with meds is hard to lose. The fact is sometimes eating less is the only way, and it is hard to do it the right way, when you are working, with a baby, trying to fix healthy meals. And nuts are a good snack actually, the fats in them are ok. They will help you feel full faster. Nuts get a bad rap actually. Some are better than others but nuts alone not in a candy bar are better for you than a candy bar. So allow yourself more than a couple if you skip a meal. I know it is hard.
Here is it 1:00 pm and I haven't eaten anything either. And I am at home.
But I am one size larger than last year and it makes me feel bad. I used to could cut out a few meals and lose weight fairly easily. Now it is not so easy but then again since i sold the farm and been depressed for the last 2 years I am not as active so that probably accounts for a large part of it too. I have so much less energy now too.
Anyway, maybe it is time for a med adjustment.
But with topamax, the wellbutin and lexapro, I believe those each alone will kill the desire to eat. At least for me, topamax and lexapro did in combo. My appetite is still low. My body has just adjusted and won't let go of the weight so i need to exercise to lose it. Or stop eating altogether.
Anyway, I think if you could adjust the weight loss to 2-3 lbs a month then you would be in the more healthy range. 5 lbs a week or so would not be so healthy.
And of course I care.
Anyway, fess up to T, and just talk about it. I think it might help. Although listen to me, I haven't told my T how i feel about my weight. I have only just now told my family.
I am going to start Wellbutrin to see if gives me more energy to help me start being more active again.
Let us just start a dialogue here to be more open about this and maybe that will help?
I need it too. I have some hangups about my weight too especially since my sister is back and wants to be in my life and I think she is super skinny and that bugs me. There it is in the open now. Petty huh
