I gained 50lbs in about 2 yrs. without changing my diet or anything, All of it is right in the stomach area. I am off of Cymbalta now (which wasn't easy because of the side effects) and hope to lose some of the weight. But I wondered if any people on your web. have had the same experience.

Hi Tod,
It is possible that the anti-depressant you were on could have contributed to your weight gain. Here is an article that discusses it:

There even is a Diet and Nutrition group (www.empowher.com/groups) that may interest you--you can connect with others wanting to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Good luck and let us know how else we can help you on your journey.
