So today I decided to take a walk, like i do every day. Luckily, it's a nice day and I have some new music that I like to listen to from Lisa Gerrard.
I'm walking down the street. I start to run and grab my stomach where I have a pocket and in that pocket is my IPOD and some loose change. I'm grabbing my stomach because I have to run across the street, and I don't want anything to fall out. I make it across and this woman says, "congratulations."
Confused, I think that maybe there's someone else she's talking to, but alas it's me.
"When are you due?" She continues.
"I'm not pregnant," I reply.
There was a moment of awkward silence, and she looked away and we both told each other to have a nice day.
I guess I'm due for some more exercise. Honestly, I've been running three to four times a week for 30 minutes, but I cannot lose the weight that I gained from my antipsychotics. I take Abilify, Prozac and a few others. I also walk an hour a day and do situps and crunches. Antipsychotics cause you to gain weight around the middle. It's horrible and a fight I'm losing apparently.
Has anyone else, any fellow fatty (more of me to love), been mistaken for being pregnant? Is anyone else on antispychotics who knows how to lose the weight? Or does anyone have a better exercise plan?
