Bridesmaid in 4 months time and gaining weight fast :( :(

I’m starting tomorrow with hubs as I only saw the plan on Facebook tonight.

3 years ago I was 100kg and a size 16/18, I stopped taking gabapentin and went down to 85kg and a size 14 in 9 months.

18 months ago I started on antidepressants to help lessen my Asperger sensitivities and have put it all back on again :( :(

I’m a post person and walk around 40-50 miles a week. I don’t smoke or drink alcohol. I do have a sweet tooth now and again but am mainly savoury foods and wholemeal carbs.

This plan is my last resort as my best friend is getting married in April and I need to fit into the dress she ordered for me last year

Hi and welcome, pyramidteabag :)

I'd like to invite you to join our Newbie Club, which we hope will be a good place for you to connect with members, who are also just starting out. If you just post a few words to introduce yourself and respond to others there, you'll soon break the ice. Here's the link


You'll find all the information you need to navigate the forum in the header, so please take the time to read it carefully.

Wishing you all the best :)


Zplease try and find alternatives to your Asperger, esp if it’s causing weight gain ( which you suggest it might be).

Portion distortion is another big area, we often feed ourselves larger portions than we need, check out portion sizes and do a bmr check ( basic metabolic rate) to see what you need to eat calorie wise to lose weight.
