I think I figured it out. My recent down moods and the weight gain and unbearable pain in my forearms (recurrence of cubital tunnel syndrome): it’s the meds I’m on, post-op. I’ve already gone through one round of medications that gave me TMJ so bad I couldn’t chew my food.
It’s a big relief to know that the nearly ten pounds I’ve gained over the last month or so have a definite reason (seriously, I haven’t eaten that much more, and neither have I had that much a sedentary life).
Okay, that’s all. I know. Not exciting. But I’m so happy to figure out why I’ve gained weight.
