Hi my name is Sarah, in my teens and twenties I weighed 105-118 I am 5'3 and have a small frame. Went through a divorce in my mid twenties, no weight gain there actually lost about 15 lbs, got in two major car accidents 2005 and 2006 was put on a PTS (Post Trauma Syndrome) Med due to anxiety issues behind the wheel I must have tried 10 different kinds over the 4-5 yr period, then they added a "inplannion" a new birth control just under the skin above the elbow. In 2009 I quit smoking after 14 yrs, in 2010 I stopped taking the meds, my anxiety has subsided, and I removed the birth control from my arm. I know this is a lot to take on.
I have gained 30 lbs over the last two years, I have been in and out of the gym. I am now 34, I used to be able to just think skinny and lose weight. Because of the anxiety I can not use any metabolism boosters it makes my heart race. I need help I need support.. Any diet suggestions with exercise? Any suggestions on how to teach your body to run, jog ? Thank you
Measurements 38 26 38
The Implanon did not affect my weight when I had it inserted.
You don't need metabolism boosters to lose weight. You lose weight by creating a calorie deficit by eating fewer calories than you burn. You should probably be aiming for a deficit of about 500 a day on average to lose around 1lb a week. The weight didn't go on overnight and nor will it come off overnight. The tools on CC will tell you how much you burn.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
