Dieting and Meds

I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I’ve stopped tracking my weight on this blog. More specifically, I’ve stopped tracking my weight and indeed, weighing myself in general. It got to be more than I could handle.

In all fairness to me, I’m on 4 different meds that have the potential to cause weight gain. And while I don’t think it’s going up, it’s making it impossible for my weight to go down.

I’m not saying I’m going to stop trying. But I am going to stop weighing myself. Getting all excited over 2 pounds lost, even though it doesn’t show in how my clothes fit, just to gain it right back… I have to stop doing that to myself.

So I have.

If I find a diet that works and my clothes actually start fitting different, I’ll go back to tracking it. Lord knows I’m not afraid to show the ups and downs of weight loss.

Even if I was ballooning up out of control, I’d track that too because it shows what meds can do to you.

But right now I’m stuck between 240 and 250 with no change outside of that range, and so tracking it just seems pointless.
