I started a diabetic-based diet (low glycemic index) in January. That was also when my Depakote taper started. I lost 25 lbs in the next three months. By March I was at a Depakote level my doctor wanted to try for a few months since coming off too fast wouldn't help anything. Then I had some mild depression in the spring and quit following the diet so closely. However I have continued to slowly lose weight, presumably because I'm eating better than I was even when I'm not at my best.
In the last week and a half I've cut my Depakote in half. I also didn't eat much for several days, but that is over with. Since the dose had gone down I thought this morning I'd weigh myself, just to see what happened.
I'm now at 33.5 lbs less than I was in January. And this is probably not a totally accurate weight since I've got some water weight at the moment.
I'm so excited!
