Side Effects

Thursday, April 29, 2010

I wanted to make it to 1000 fitness minutes this month. Now it is clear that I cannot even make it to 100 fitness minutes this month. That has to be OK with me even though it does not feel good.

Also, my eating is trying to spiral out of control. Everyday feels like a war. This is partially due to yet another medication I had to try because of a different medical problem I have which, by the way, also contributes to overeating. I have been dealing with my childhood a lot in my mind and talking with my brother and sister, too, because I would like to have a child. I am seeing that I have always had an issue with food (as have they) and I am sad for us (and angry).

The good news is that I have continued to lose weight. According to the doctor I will likely see a spike up this week but he said it should be short-term since I am already off the new medication.

In other good news I am eating a lot but most of it is good food! I am drinking water and eating veggies!

Thank you to everybody for your supportive comments last week. I'll check in again when I weigh-in this Friday morning.

    Hey, hang in there! You can do this! Just try to focus on your health right now. Eat those healthy foods and try to exercise, even if its just a little. It doesnt have to be ALL or NOTHING! Every step you take counts! Mostly praise yourself for all of the positive things you are doing for yourself.

    It must be hard for you with the medications you are taking and trying to get healthy. Hang in there girl and don't give up. You will find the right combination. I do hope that you will get the chance to exercise next month because it sounds like you really want to. I hope everything falls into place for you soon:)

    The first step is the most important one. If you can overeat healthy foods, then you are one step closer to your goals. Make May YOUR month and dedicate yourself to your fitness plan. I know you can do it!
