Week 143 - 33

0.2lb gain.

It's been a tough week emotionally. Not that anything's happened as such, but my moods have been dropping significantly. It's 3 weeks since the anti-depressants were upped from 10mg to 20mg daily, so there's still time for them to kick in. I just wish it didn't take so long.

All things considered, it could have been a lot worse.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 7.2lb - 175.2lbs
Body fat: 23.2%
Total Weight Loss: 99.8lbs

I hope it works out for you.

Thanks Half Man

I can understand the havoc that emotional swings can take on your eating habits. For me, there doesn't seem to be any way to predict which way I will go. Either I don't eat at all, or I eat everything in sight... It's hard to be such a contrary person sometimes.

Sayre - I've heard of people who deal with stress by not eating, but I have to admit it's something completely beyond my comprehension.

Dear Kim,

I always read your posts with interest, and of late I realise that medication and weightloss are not a happy couple.

Likewise. emotions and eating are often so much interlinked that it seems impossible to disentangle them. But I for me, know it IS possible. But having said doing so takes constant vigilance, and I do not deal with medication and depression.

I admire you Kim, your tenacity is impressive!

oh yes and.....TAG, you're it!

*grins* hop on over to my blog (day 196) and you'll see what I mean!

Ok, you may be 0.2 pounds up, but you know what? Your body fat percentage is DOWN. Maybe your beefcake muscles are just beefing up a bit more. *Insert Arnold Schwarzenegger impression here.*

It looks like your weight has been stable within a pound or two for quite some time. I certainly agree that depression can wreck havoc with one's self discipline. And, reading back a few posts, I too wish that my weight gain was due to irresistible indulgences rather than junk, especially when I've eaten that junk without enjoyment during one of my mindless binges. That said, I intend to enjoy Thanksgorging and the other eating holidays. Hopefully, I'll eat and enjoy without getting into stuffing myself beyond that point. I hope the depression meds start doing the job for you.

Pandora - I'm afraid I'm too busy just at the moment to work on a meme, but hopefully things will calmdown in a week or 2 and I'll give it a go :)

Freakazojd - The body fat seems to vary by about 1 percent across the weeks, so I don't hold too much store by it. It's a guideline rather than a solid figure. Arnie can rest easy about the competition for a while :)

Arlene - I've not varied more than 4 pounds now for 33 weeks, which is the 2nd figure on the blog post titles - I essentially see this as maintenance weight now
