Stats: (5'5") 237
WOE: low carb
Start Date: 03/01/2018

over the past year, I have started taking Zoloft 50mg, despite my best efforts to stay lowcarb the weight has crept on. I am 237 and am sick of not fitting into my clothes. I am strict low carb and in the past before Zoloft I was able to shimmy down to and maintain 175. Has anyone had any success while taking medication, I would rather be thin and anxious that fat and not anxious, I know this sounds off but any help or information is helpful!

I eat 22-25carbs a day, mostly meat and greens limited cheese and dairy as that causes me inflammation

I'm 39 and want to be fit and fab by 40, 12/25

Would love to be back to 175 but fear I can't do this while I'm taking meds....
I only ask for 5lbs a month gone....more yay, less unacceptable!

Just be sure that you consult with your physician while weaning off your meds.

You might consider fasting to budge those lbs..

I've heard of Zoloft causing weight gain, but I believe there are other effective anti depressants that do not have this side effect. One I had heard of was Wellbutrin, I believe. Worth asking your doctor. Wishing you happiness.
