Pills that make you put on weight?
Yes, Some meds definetly do cause a weight gain and some aid with weight loss!!Read the prescribing info that comes with your meds or look it up...You can ask for a different med that has weight loss as a positive side effect!

so tired
Make a plan! Decide what diet you can follow and get started. Everyone has a reason to lose the weight...WHAT IS YOURS? That is your motivation. I started 1 hour at a time the first day...kept saying to myself "You CAN do this!" AND YOU CAN TOO!
