I used to weigh 150 now I am 160-165.
I have high blood pressure, scoliosis. I used to have a lot of things wrong, but when they removed a pituitary tumor, It eliminated some symptoms (headaches, sleep apnea). I was on an opiate patch(fentynal 100mg), seroquil (600mg) to help me sleep and adderal (30mg) to get me going in the a.m. I'm off the patch, but not the other two. I tapered off seroquil but after a month I wasn't getting any quality sleep so I started it up again (100mg).
I take lisinopril 20mg, Norvasc 10mg, ser\oquil 100mg, adderal XR 30mg, cabergomine 10mg twice a week (for growth hormone), multi-1-day vitamin, vitamin D 2000units and ubiquinol 100mg.
No stress, I'm now retired.
Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
A weight loss of more than 2 pounds per week is not good due to what is called Yoyo effect( the cycle of losing and regaining weight). This happens when a person tries to reduce a significant amount of weight in ashort period of time through rigid dieting and then suddenly discontinuesdieting because of boredom or sheer hunger. When this happens, the person gainsweight but this time becomes even heavier than before dieting started.Cut your calories intake.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/healthy-weight-pyramid/SA00103Do Yoga ,aerobic exercise-walking, cycling or swimming, deep breathingexercises.Continue to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.Increase Fibre in diet.
