Depression, Eating Disorders, Medication and Pregnancy

Since I found out that I am pregnant, I have been doing a lot of research on the medication I take on a daily basis, and it’s possible side effects on my pregnancy. To be fair, there’s not a lot of information out there. A lot of drugs are simply not studied much, or even …

Weight Loss Update #3

Hello, hello! January has been a great month! Something about the new year is so motivating, even though I started my weight loss a few months ago, starting fresh in 2017 was a great way to get me going even more… or so I thought. I had been slacking a lot at the gym for …

Pursuing Your Dreams

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a model. Maybe not quite, actually… first I wanted to be a pop-star-veterinarian-ballerina, but once I became somewhat realistic with what I wanted out of life. I was a chubby kid, though. And because of my ADD, I never stuck with anything for long …

Changing my Medication

I have some really big news! I had an appointment with my psychiatrist last week, and we talked about something that is both good and really scary. I’ve been doing so much better over the last few months, but there is an issue that has been bothering me since I did some research early on. …

Plans for 2017

While I think that there’s never a better time than the present to start working towards any goals that you may have, I also think it’s fun to write down a few things around the beginning/end of the year so that you have something consistent to look back on. Honestly, I don’t remember doing this …

Hello again! I hope you can tell by my positive introduction that things are going well, and I managed to survive the holiday season without completely derailing my progress! Honestly, I would have liked to lose a little bit more, but being around friends and family, being around so much food, and generally not having …

One Month on Dexedrine

Although I’m not doing them as frequently, I did still want to make an update here and there to these medication posts. I started with Prozac and I have been increasing my dose a bit more every couple of weeks. As I mentioned in my previous post, my eating habits are now officially under my control, …

Weight Loss Update #1

While I’ve been struggling with my weight for a long time, and I started going to the gym consistently in August, I’ve decided to make the official start to my weight loss journey October 24th. This is the first full day that I was on medication, and the first time in years where I had …

One Month on Prozac + Dexedrine

I’ll be dialling these posts back now, as they’re not particularly interesting anymore. The big changes seem to have already happened, and anything else that happens will be subtle and will no longer need a weekly update. The one thing worth mentioning, though, is my food problem. It is amazing, I have been able to …

Week 3 on Prozac

Monday: I forgot my first pill. Funny how I was just joking about that the other day. I’ve also been taking a colon cleanse supplement that has been helping with my weight loss, and I also forgot that one. Usually, I keep these things in my purse but today they got left behind in the kitchen. …
