@impracticaldreams Hey there.
First off relax, take a deep breathe. Being overwieght isn’t the best thing but it isn’t the end of the worl either.
Now, the thing about losing weight is that you need a HEALTHY diet not cutting down all food. Secondly diets are useless without exercise. So what your gonna do is snack all you want, but on healthier things, nuts and fruits and vegetables. That way no matter how much you eat its mostly vitamins, water and fibre. Everything that is good for your body.
Exercising or any kind of physical activity is hard, especially after medication, so start of slow. Walk half an hour at a normal pace. You will come back to find yourself feeling better. Take it in baby steps. You shouldn’t expect drastic results in only a little while and the main reasons diets don’t work is because people push themselves too hard at first. So take it slow. Take it easy and focus on being HEALTHIER not thinner.
Lastly, weight gain is often a side effect of medication so stop blaming yourself for it. You have the same amount of self control then most of the people on the planet. So be happy, be healthy and contact me if you need a dieting buddy it’s time I started working out
