Today I feel very depressed. I am not sure why either. It could be because of the weather. It is so cold and rainy. We might even get a little snow today. I hope not but we might. I have told my son we will go see a movie today. Hopefully that will make me feel better. I am worried about the amount of popcorn I will eat though. I know I should only eat a little bit but I like my popcorn and am not sure I will be able to control myself. I am still going to follow my meal plan and I am still going to stay within my calories. I hope popcorn doesn't have a lot of fat. I read that a serving of popcorn is 2 cups. Well how do you measure that at the movie theater. You can't. I am just going to get the smallest back and only eat a little bit of it. Maybe even get a kids bag. That might be a good idea. Yesterday I was so optimistic. Today I am so depressed. I just wanna go back to bed and sleep the day away and it sucks. i didn't get my steps in yesterday, I didn't take my water pill in the evening like I was suppose to, I didn't get to the gym to work out, and I feel like I am going to fail today too. I just have to remember that I am not going to fail because I am not going to quit. It is hard though when I feel so depressed today. Life just seems to give me a bad hand sometimes. I am hoping I can shake out this depression. I need to get out and do stuff today but my son is still asleep upstairs. Maybe I should wake him up so we can go get our stuff done today and maybe I can get a workout in or something. I am not sure. I really don't feel like working out today. I usually feel depressed on Sundays because nothing ever gets done and I don't feel like I am accomplishing anything on the weekends.

    We all have days when we want to crawl back into bed. As long as it's occasional! If you still feel like you do best to chat with your doctor about it. Not something to just ignore. I did and ended up a total mess on time. My doctor put me on a low does of Lexapro (antidepressant) which just takes the edge off. Winter weather used to get to me terrible!! Wishing you the best. Take care of YOU!! You matter.

    Well, you're not the only one, I guess, that gets depressed, I feel like that at times basically have the "blue" day feeling, and I think it is because I am going to need knee replacement surgery, I am going to go through with it, many people I have talked to have said, they were glad they had it done, but, everybody is different, and I am still basically scared!! At this point, I see the surgeon on Friday of this week, to go over things, that need to be done b4 the surgery. It makes it hard to walkas my left leg became crooked and then all the problems started.

    I hope you had a nice time at the movies and with your son. Popcorn is good, plain is best. but I like buttered. emoticon

    When I go to the movies I always get a medium popcorn. I was thinking about getting a small when I go to the movies next time. Can you get a smaller size? I feel like just making that small change will help, even if it's more than the serving. Good luck today. As another member said, you deserve a break! If you need ANYTHING please feel free to SparkMail me!! Good luck!! emoticon emoticon

    Don’t feel like you have to do stuff; enjoy four day and time with your son. You deserve to take a break f I’m all the stuff and just rest, relax and enjoy doing that. The stuff will be there and who cares! Enjoy your day and enjoy your popcorn!
