... will continue to gain. I am also feeling less energetic and "dull". I am a single mom of 3 kids and I have a management job that requires me to be sharp. I am scared that I will both lose my athletic body and not be able to keep up at work. HOWEVER, I love the fact that I am level now. I have not been manic or down since starting the med. For the sake of my kids I need to stay on the meds to keep stable. Can I conquer the weight gain and the "dullness"?
