Medication Frustration!

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Feeling slightly frustrated with a gain this month of 3 pounds. Since last July, with the ups and downs, I've lost 52 pounds. I was truly hoping to have lost twice that by now as I started at 465. However, there have been trials and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and placed on Gabapentin, which apparently can increase appetite. My doctor says my body will get used to it as long as I exercise regularly and I plan on doing just that so I'm not letting this get me down. I need the gabapentin so I can have less pain. It does not help that my knees are bone on bone and I have stage 1 lymphedema too in my legs. Anyway, I'm pressing on! I hope you all have a wonderful day!!! Huggggggssssssssss, Angel

    Medications can really mess with our bodies! But 52 lbs is amazing! You are doing great! Those pesky 3 lbs that came along this month will be gone before you know it! emoticon
