I need help...im getting depressed.
Growing up I was slightly chubby, never obese, but I could still stand to lose a few pounds. When I turned 18 I was around 140lbs (im 5'4) and I decided to do something about it, I started running and I cut out all sugar and white breads and pasta. I went down to 125lbs VERY easily....then I went on the depo shot, I started counting calories, lifting weights at the gym, and still continued running... I lost more weight and went down to 115, but still had a belly pooch. I went off of the shot b.c it wasn't making me feel so good, and I had spotting everyday, which made me anemic. I went to a new doctor, b.c i moved for college, and she put me on a new BC pill (trispintec) b.c she felt that was the only thing i needed was to be put on BC....
Well, since i got put on the BC pill I went from115 to 140 lbs!! I am VERY diligent with counting my calories, every single gram of food that enters my body is accounted for. I weigh my food on a digital scale, I eat VERY healthy but yet I gained all this weight, and despite all of my best efforts I cant lose ANY of it...its been a year since i stopped my BC pill and i cant lose the weight and i havent had my period in a year.
I went to a new doctor last week and she put me on provera to induce my period, and then she said she wanted to put me on metformin....Will this help me regulate my periods and help control my weight if coupled with my diet and exercise??
Please, Im getting so desperate.
