    "my diet is below average" does not sound like a healthy planned diet. If you are eating healthy try eating about half as much healthy food as usual for a while to see if you lose weight. Losing weight requires attention and calculation

    Hi are you saying after being married for 2 - 3 months you came off all those meds? Just trying to work out this timeline and wondering how all your depression and anxiety disappeared?

      Yes I do recall getting really quite skinny in it but the gain wasn't huge. Maybe being smaller got me into all the extreme sports and racing I did so it wasn't so bad - the weight gain
