No I am not ….

No, I am not eating more

Unfortunately, was it that easy. That I started eating more and by eating less I could regain my normal figure. I even eat less than before, because I am quite afraid of gaining even more weight. It seems that every time I eat something I gain a kilo.

No, I don’t exercise less

I certainly do not exercise less. I walk an average of three long walks a week (17 km or more at a time) and a few shorter 1-hour walks at speed. I still do this during Corona era. Outside of Corona I also swam once a week. But the pounds are from before Corona.

No, I do not eat less healthier

At least I eat like you if you don’t count not eating rice, because I don’t eat that. I eat quite a few vegetables and a lot of fruit. I love fruit. I’m not such a bread eater so it often becomes a salad, soup or fruit. I also don’t eat a lot out or on the road, because I find it expensive in the Netherlands.

Then what?

I take medication that makes you fatter as a side effect. Yes really! Since 2017 I started taking antipsychotics (Risperidone, 1 mg) again and saw with my own eyes how my body changed without being able to do anything about it. Now 80 kilos and I was 56 kilos !!!!

Then why do you keep swallowing?

Yes, I already take the lowest dose in which this medication comes. The tapering went off overnight last time. And therefore went wrong in my opinion. There is little study on how to reduce this medication, because people used to think that you have to take this medication your whole life. I would like to phase out this medication gradually. Maybe swallow 1 pill less in a week in 3 months and then the next 3 months 2 days less in a week, and so on. Whether this could work? No idea? But being so fat is not an option for me either! I refuse to buy new clothes (read 2 sizes bigger; from small to large; 34/36 to 38/40), because this is not my size.

You don’t believe me?

I would say take this medication for six months yourself and then we will talk again. As your belly grows and the rest stays muscular. Yes as if you are pregnant. I am not the only one with this problem with antipsychotic medicine.
