Weight Gain with Medications

Three weeks ago I started going to the gym a few times a week. Yesterday, I got on my bike and did my twenty minute route that I did routinely prior to winter.  I could not believe how out of shape I still am.  I have gained thirty pounds in the last year due to my medications.  I am trying desperately to cut out sugar and alcohol, vowing to no longer bake sweets or buy chocolate bars for the occasional nibble treat.  I gained the weight with pretty much minimal snacking.  I was on Invega in 2014 and gained but I eventually reached a plateau, this Abilify Maintena must not have a plateau or it is 200 lbs for me.  My son said the answer is walk a lot and only eat a cup of food at each meal.  His buddies have lost a lot of weight with that method.  Abilify is to treat mania and depression, but what could be more depressing than being obese?

I have decided to eat salads everyday.  That is how I lost twenty pounds in 2002.
