I am sharing this post as yet another effort in my journey with a years long fight with obesity. I will try not to bore you too much yet give you an idea of what I’m dealing with. Any suggestions and encouragement is greatly appreciated. I have dealt with weight imbalance sort of all my life. I remember being active as a kid and staying fairly in shape and than when I was not doing sports I would gain weight but I was able to maintain some sort of normal most of my young life. I am originally from Poland. Height 6’ and currently at 215 pounds. Yet just 8 months ago I weighed almost 300 lbs. I am a classic example of a yo-yo dieter. Staying obese for about 2 years followed by a short period usually less than a year of hard core effort of weight loss. This time around I decided I really want to do lifestyle changes and sustain weight loss for good. I found a new doctor and he started me on Fluoxetine to help with the psychological aspect. It helped some to where I do not have junk food cravings but still having sweet cravings. They start to intensify. I feel like it might have to do with dopamine receptors and reward center. I am planning to go back to my doctor for help but wax wondering if you had any advice. Thanks so much!
