Why set goals for yourself?  Goals provide motivation and promote a drive to succeed.  I may be down about my weight gain but I have not given up hope.  I WILL reach my goal of back down to 115; it just may take me a little while to get there.  At least I recognize I have gained 7 pounds in a year and I'm not giving up.  There's a problem and I will get to the root of it eventually.  In the meantime I am experimenting with some different things.  For example, while I was on the Depo Lupron shot to get rid of my endometriosis for nine months I was on Prozac.  It was as if my body believed I was in menopause.  I was having huge mood swings, hot flashes, and frequent headaches.  Even though I got off the shot in August it can take 6-9 months for it to completely leave my body.  In the meantime, my doctor and I decided it would be best to continue the Prozac in case there are still side effects.  Well, it does seem coincidental that last fall I was 114 and then last December (when I started taking the meds) I began a slow and steady weight gain for the past year.  For some reason I didn't realize that the Prozac may also cause weight gain on some people.  Just in case, I've called my doctor and asked her to switch me to a med that doesn't have any chance of weight gain.  Who knows - maybe this will help get me back to where I was!
