She doesn't even look like she could have ever carried that much!

Between depression and medications I had ballooned from a reasonable size 10 to a size 16 sometimes size 18 and weighed over 200 pounds...not much over admittedly but enough to make me feel disgusted with myself and that added to the depression ...
the topomax and its effect upon my appetite has had an effect upon my weight that diets could not achieve... diets and illness would take the weight off but I could not keep it off for any length of time...
this time the weight has started to come off (the weight loss began last January) and has continued... the other day I was pleased to discover that I had to buy a size eight pair of jeans if I wanted to look neat and tidy and not sloppy... and the winter jacket I have been wearing is too large and looks untidy; I had to buy a small ... many of the sweaters I have I can wear as they look intentionally large but the x-l ones have to go... and I have had to go out and find some small size sweaters for the dressier look I prefer... I have this tailored look hang-up... oh there is another thing the psychologist can hang his hat on next session LOL...
the topomax does help with weight loss; the dramatic weight loss does not come overnight but even the little losses are a boost to the ego, trust me... I know <GGG>
