Managing to lose some weight

I’m losing some weight but I don’t think it’s because of my diet completely.
It’s because I no longer take Depakote.

I couldn’t lose any weight while I was on that drug, even if I ate less.

Now that I’m off this med I’m able to shed some pounds.

I’m not starving myself either.

I’ll eat pasta at least once a week and still managing to lose some weight.

Good riddance Depakote!

I weighed 250 pounds on depakote zyprexa and haldol combination I stopped the depakote myself and then the doctor took me off of zyprexa and I was losing so much weight it was crazy. That’s good for you!

Losing weight is like a game changer for confidence and self esteem I remember voices making fun of me for being fat and it just crushed me inside

That’s awesome! I suspect part of my problem is my meds, too, but I’m scared to change.

Since I’ve been living with my sister and moving out of my ex gf’s house, I’ve been losing a few pounds. I’m down to 160 from 165 lbs. I’m 5’8.5"
