First when you get on psychotic medications most people have a weight gain that is significant. I am 4 foot 11 inches and weigh 160. I am really trying to lose the weight. I just got a fit bit and been tracking calories and exercise. I feel frustrated I can’t see any results after a week of eating smaller portions than I have been. I feel determined to lose 20 pounds by August. That is 5 pounds a months. If I don’t lose the weight I could easily develop type two diabeties. And that would be another chronic illness to deal with. Many people have both weight causes the diabetes. And so I do want to lose the weight. I need too.
