So...i was on this birth control that made me gain 20 pounds! I tried to lose the weight while still on the shot, eating healthy and working out at least 5 times a week, and only lost 4 pounds in a matter of 3 months of this. So i was suggested to do a cleanse, searched around and then tried the "lemonade master cleanse" did that for 3 days and only lost 1 pound. Started getting depressed about the weight gain, finally chosing to switch my birth control method. The other birth control is now out of my system and im ready to start my workout/diet again. But, im having a hard time getting back into it, thinking im not gonna see the results i want to like last time. Anyone wanna give me some tricks that helped motivate you to get into shape, or even just yell at me haha tell me to just suck it up. :D
I refuse to do hormonal bc ever again because it screwed my body up so bad I had the same problem as you when I was probably 19 or 20. Anyway after I got off it I lost the weight easily. Just watch your calorie intake and stay active, you'll do fine.
I went through the same thing. I can not use any type of female bc. I've tried so many different types they made me gain weight and made me super sick. They really messed up my body Continue working out and choose what is best for you.
Also when you feel like quitting tell yourself, "I'm not a quitter. I won't give up."
