Starting over

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Well, as the title says, I am starting over. Truthfully I don't have much motivation to do it but I know I have to. So, I have set very low goals for myself. Stuff I know I can do even when I am depressed (I am bi-polar and have stress/Anxiety disorder). Hopefully, anyway. I lost 10 lbs at my weigh in a month ago, but this last weigh in on the 19th I was the EXACT same weight as my previous weigh in so I was quite upset. But, lets face facts. I have been going through a depressed time. I have no motivation, and my body feels drained of energy. Its an effort just to get out of bed to take care of my son. In other words, I have been doing pretty much nothing to assist myself in the weight loss. But since I HAD been eating less I guess I just was surprised I hadn't lost anything. What I really should feel is relief that I haven't GAINED. But, I am starting over. I will take this one day at a time. I will not allow myself to even think about this effort. I will just do. Because if I think too much about it it will overwhelm me, as I find things do very easily lately. Anyway, Here's Hoping!

    Depression does suck the life out of you! I am experiencing the same. I have to force myself to come here and Spark not to mention get out of bed in the morning. I understand completely. Maybe you and I could have a daily check-in or something to keep us both moving forward (even if it doesn't feel like it). If we don't check in with each other.... well, we'll can think of something. Let me know okay? ~Alicia

    I know its easier said than done, but keep your head up. Things will get better, easier, and you'll see those numbers get lower. Stay strong and remember that there's no time limit on how long you can celebrate or feel good about weight loss - you've already lost some weight, and you should be proud of yourself for that! emoticon
