weigh-in, weight gain

Weekly Weigh-in #43: October 21, 2012


26st 12lb

So, I’m back on those 15mg Mirtazapine again. The last time I was on them was when I gained 11lbs, 7lbs and 5lbs, week after week after week.

I’ve been on them since TUESDAY.

I dread to think what the weight gain would have been like for a whole week.

I’ve still got some of my 30mg tablets left – an entire month’s worth and half a strip – so I’m going to just cut those in half instead.

This is RIDICULOUS. This is knocking me back YEARS. I wouldn’t be able to walk to The Water Palace or The Jock Stein Centre now if I wanted to. I can hardly walk across the road to The Co-Op to get milk and bread, I’m in so much pain right now.

At least, I got my period today, so maybe a pound or so of the weight gain can be from that. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about my body from YEARS of dieting, it’s that I always put on weight on period weeks, no matter how good or bad I’ve been.

(And I’ve been GOOD this week. Which is the annoying thing.)


Anyway. I now have 30lbs to lose to get back to where I was at the start of the year.

This is just…

BRB, I’m going to sleep for the rest of the year.
