I don’t have any pictures to share this time….but instead, complaints. I have posted here twice before. Once at 4 months PP here and once at 7 months PP here. By the time I was about 10 months PP I was back to normal and completely happy with my body again. Once I started working full time again, about a year ago, I gained back about 5 pounds due to not having time to work out as much. I was still pretty happy with what I had. Until about 6 months ago….I’ve always been a pretty high strung person, but I began to feel more anxious than ever and was really stressing out about everything. My doctor decided to try me on Zoloft. This is the first time I had ever been on any type of medication for anxiety or anything for that matter. At first I started feeling better, calmer…but more hungry and lazier than ever. I still push myself to workout at least 3
days a week and I have been eating healthy, as I almost always have. The pounds keep coming. I have gained at least 10-15 pounds since being on the medication. I seem to have lost the muscle tone I had despite working out. My doctor says that the Zoloft will not cause these things and has ever suggested increasing my dose. I plan on stopping the medication under supervision….of a different doctor. It sucks cause I loved my post partum shape and now I hate my flabby body and find it harder to enjoy life and my family due to feeling so bad about my body. No matter what I eat or don’t eat or how hard I work out, I can’t get the pounds to budge…they just keep creeping up.
