How to lose weight on Amitriptyline

I am on 75mg a day of Amitriptyline for migraines. Has anyone had any luck not gaining weight on Elavil/Amitriptyline? I have been on it for a couple months and am having a much harder time than I thought not gaining weight. Did any particular strategies work for you? Did the effect kind of wane as you got used to the medicine? Thanks!

Is it possible to become vegetarian and gain weight at the same time?

I´ve recently discovered that my body "dislikes" red meat, this is, I become heavy and slow when eat this kind of food. Additionally, my doctor suggested that I should eat less meat since my kidneys are not working properly. One of my life goals is to become vegetarian (ovo-lacto kind to start), and I purchased some books on the subject, but none of them explains how to do so without putting your health in risk. Is there a comprehensive and safe guide to start being vegetarian? [more inside]

Tiny Dancer? I think not.

I took two years of ballet when I was 15-17, and loved it! I got hooked, took it about 4-5 times per week, and worked so hard that I ended up starting pointe before heading off to college.

Exercise Plan?

I have three days a week and approx. 1 hour 15min. I am about 30 lbs over weight but eating healthy. I know I need to do cardio and I like weights. Anybody have a workout plan that they can suggest for 3 times a week? (I hope to go 4 eventually but this is the time I have). The only exercises I cannot do are military presses do to a rotator cuff issue. So with this limited time and stretching thrown in, what is your advice/opinon? Feel free to share with me your workout program. I am in okay shape but still in the walking stages of cardio. I am rather strong but am not looking to get more muscular....rather to get lean, if possible. I would hire a trainer but cannot afford it at this time.
