if only i knew the answer. what are you doing to try and lose it? Because your body wants to gain weight, not lose it. It will help you put on pounds and fight you shedding them. Your body is thrifty and hates to spend calories but loves to store them away. And, extra fat is your calorie savings account. You can trick it though, into thinking that it needs to break more calories out of store. Skip sugars that spike blood sugar, and try to eat a small, light meal or go running first thing. The sooner you get started doing things in the am the sooner you get your metabolism into daytime mode. Eat you biggest meal for lunch and you will be burning that up during the day and a smaller meal for dinner, but early. Try not to eat within the three hours before bed. Think of daytime metabolism as having higher calorie taxes, so you want to spend as many calories during the daytime as possible and store as few at night. Fiber (soluble and in-soluble) are good for you and make you feel fuller longer, but drink more water with more fiber, you'll need it. And proteins, whole grain starches, and fruits/veggies (especially uncooked or lightly cooked) are harder to digest, you actually use a very high percent of the calories each day on digesting, so you spend more to get the food value out than on cooked white starches and sugars. And, it seems that calcium helps keep a slimmer figure so have a yogurt or some skim milk or a little cheese each day. Sitting slows you down, even if you have a sitting job, go for a walk in the am and when you get home (but not before bed bc you need to let your body wind down before you sleep) and use water/cigarette breaks to take a chort 5-10 min walk or stretch or whatever you have space and time for, just to the the blood moving and keep that metabolism going strong. Lastly, weights build muscle and muscle has a high caloric maintenance fee. Every pound of muscle can help burn a lot more calories when it is in motion throughout the day but it also burns a lot more when you are sleeping. Although muscle weighs more than fat so you might not find the weight difference that dramatic. Skip the scales and buy a tape measure. Good luck!

Will switching to Wellbutrin from Celexa help you to lose the weight you've gained while taking Celexa?

My experience with Wellbutrin was yes, it helped me lose weight that I had gained on other anti-depressants. I had been taking EFFEXOR for a long time and kept gaining weight. I was switched to Celexa and told that it shouldn't make me gain weight. I continued to gain weight on the Celexa. I also had sexual side effects. The doctor switched me to Wellbutrin. I had gained 20 lbs. since starting SSRI's. Once I stopped taking those and switched to Wellbutrin, I lost 10 lbs. easily. The other 10 I had to work at to take off, but it came off! On the SSRI's it seemed like no matter what I did to lose weight it wouldn't work. Hope this helps!
