    I won't give up, I need help.

    Not sure if I should post this here or not and I honestly do not need judgement or cruelty, I have had plenty of it in my life.

    Anyways here is my situation:

    I have PTSD and depression and these have both affected my ability to lose weight as a whole because I have to taken Wellbutrin and Abilify in order to help
    stabilize my mood and to help with depression. For a while I put myself on a diet to lose weight and I tried every diet I could and none of them helped me lose weight.
    I did a lot of research and it turns out that the Abilify was preventing from losing weight, so I stopped taking it and lowered my carb and calorie intake and walked and exercised
    daily for miles and within a month I lost 20lbs. The problem with not taking the Abilify is became super depressed and could not function, so now I had to take it again but I am trying to
    switch medicines so I can begin the process again to lose weight and get in better shape. I love exercising, I love fitness, I love working out and going to the gym and knowing I did something
    for the day for myself. I want to be able to run the mile in 10 mins, I want to be free, I truly do. This is a dream of mine to be fit and healthy, not for anybody else by myself. My current weight is 445lbs, but I will not give up,
    I refuse to. What can I do in the meantime to maintain my weight? What exercises do you recommend for me to do before I switch medicines? I would also like to try to connect to some people on here to help me with this.
    Thank you for hearing me out and have a wonderful day.

    I'm no expert but anything to keep you moving and burning at least something I'd of thought. I personally started very easy with a quick walk at first just going to walks and then slowly picked the pace up to start running.

    Keep us all updated on your progress!
