Fantastic! Measurable signs of improving health are great motivators.

This broken record is getting ridiculous. Way over yesterday. Still 155 today. It's crazy how much of this is mental. It's harder to control urges when they don't seem to do any harm. But I know this will catch up with me. I do need to put it in perspective - I am going over a goal that would be a deficit, so "way over" probably isn't bad as it seems. I really want to be in the bottom half of my maintenance range instead of the middle (yeah, bring out the tiny violins) and seem to lack the discipline to get there. It's just annoying.

I was 151.4 today. Yesterday I was 149. Iím about 1.5 days away from period. So the 2 pound weight gain from yesterday is probably PMS weight gain. Yesterday I got dizzy around 6PM and I realized I had eaten pretty much nothing but chips and salsa all day. I had a decent size dinner but it wasnít a ton of food.

Today Iíve gotten back on track and so far Iíve had 740 calories.

156! Finally, it ticked up to prove to me I am human and will gain weight if I eat too much. Now, to react properly and quit eating like a crazy man. Yesterday was about the worst yet; way, way over.

Well, I actually gained too much weight. There was a large box of fig cookies. I ate all of them in record time. This can be related to the increase of Olanzapine. I am just going to have to get used to feeling hungry. Getting back to exercise will help. Last time I weighed, I was at 182. Hopefully some of this is part of the normal swings in weight. I will check this out by weighing myself every day, starting today.

@Tucson - good to see you back! I have been fortunate to have few med changes, though a change in supplier of one of my generics does seem to make me more prone to slight nausea. Shifting more of my calories to earlier in the day helps with that, but then the trick is staying within goal that night when running low/out of calories.

Sorry to hear this Tucson!Unfortunately Olanzapine increases appetite,I gained over four stones when I was on it,it also put a strain on my heart and damaged my kidneys.I came off it,but didn't lose the weight.

Did well yesterday, though it required a long stint of cardio. Rounded down to 155 this morning. Cardio was last night, so probably a bit of dehydration this morning.
