    Should I blame on the meds

    It's puzzling and disturbing to me at the same time. I have been going to the gym at the apt for a long time now, They have changed the ellipticals to the kind wth the arm as well and legs...yes. I am addicting to it now. I go on it for about 30 minutes, steady pace, resistance is about 3 because i dont want to get muscular legs. I feel great after that. I use my swiss ball at home for sit ups for stomach area which is my biggest problem. I watch the diet strenuously. I make smothies practically every morning with fruit with greek yogurt which I love. I dont use sugar. I freeze bananas and strawberries when I purchase them. I only eat chicken, any way except fried and eat alot veggies. I eat alot of salads. I dont eat after 7 pm. I have been use to that schedule. But still I am frustrated.


    Here is what I think ociuld be problem. Just read the article in Web MD about "Reasons your Not Losing Weight". It talks about medicines that people take. I take different medicines. I do take thyroid meds but I dont thinkt it's a contributory reason. Last lab test my levels were great. I do take Topamax (Topiramate 100 mg) Ativan (lorazepam 1 mg), for anti-anxiety. I cant pinpoint if they are contributory for me not being not able to lose weight. I am frustrated. Before I started the regiment going to the gym I had a few slacks that I tried on that fit me last summer, couldnt button them. I started going to the gym and do the pother stuff. This morning i had to find out if they were fit now. Not....sorry, darnit. But one of them with good shaper underwear was better fitting. Should I feel good. What do you think about the meds if I should ask the doc if I should change or wean a little off of them.
