Thanks @Bowens. I had to get really strict with my eating and exercising to lose the weight. I measure, count, and weigh everything before I eat it. I track it all on MyFitnessPal. If you are determined to lose, it’s possible. It just might take longer than usual due to your meds

Yes, it does take a lot longer for us to lose weight calorie counting and measuring due to our meds. It took me a good year and a half. I’ve kept it off for 6 years now. Keeping it off is the real challenge.

I continued to count calories for many years after losing the weight. I don’t anymore but I still measure and watch portion sizes. And of course, exercise. That never stops.

I agree. I plan to continue counting calories for good
