    Two weeks after stopping Topamax

    It's been two weeks since we stopped topamax and I feel fine. No side effects since. I posted a lengthy post about my trip to doctor and frustrated with not being losing weight. I cut off all fruit for the time being since the doc cautioned all that fruit is loaded with sugar. I stocked up withh veggies when I shopped and for about 4 days straight I had a nice salad with romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cucumbers, grape tomatoes. I use light dressing. It really curbed appetite for dinner after eating a nice salad. I also bought spinach leaves and I will make more salads.


    I usually buy chicken breasts, skinless and boneless and I cook it different ways except fried. The other day I put two breasts in a pan and put a little olive oil, added chopped garlic and green onions. Put the chicken in and used seasonings and some teriyaki sauce which added more flavor to the chicken. Since I ate a big salad I didnt have any thing with chicken and that was fine. I drink ice tea during summer and bought green tea bags. I have a ice tea maker and when it brews and goes to the pitcher, it makes about 3 quarts. I just my own sweetener in my sipper and some lemon. Hopefully that this new regimen I am doing which shed some weight. I also go to the gymn about 4 times a week and do the elliptical for 30 minutes and use my exercise ball at home. Wish me luck with my new schedule and keeping on tract.
