I was on the depo shot from the middle of last year until early April of this year. During that time I gained about 25 lbs. I was surprised because I eat pretty well and it's not in my genetics to gain that much weight. After doing some research I realized that the shot was the culprit. I then worked on changing my diet to try and make up for the shot (changing to whole grains, smaller portions, no desserts, etc..) But when I still couldn't lose the weight I became frustrated and decided to give up on the shot. Now that I've stopped taking it I have gained another 7 lbs despite the fact that I have started a pretty intensive daily exercise routine, as well as making sure I'm drinking plenty of water every day. I cannot figure out what to do to lose this weight! Does anyone have any suggestions?
