God bless you!!!! Have a talk with you minister or priest. Sometimes that helps.

Thanks! I had a better day today! Stayed within my food range for the day and journaled all my food :) Husband is helping me also by being supportive. Being really busy at work helped too. Planning one day at a time. Looking forward to "real" spring weather.

I think many of us can relate. But hang in there.. do whatever brings you peace.. prayer, meditation, screaming..... one thought is that if you can just concentrate on writing down the meals every day, it gives you a tiny portion of control that you can't have in the rest of your life right now... and that sensation of being in control may help in other ways.

You can and will do this and get to your healthy place. I hope it is soon for you.

I agree, that you should likely see a professional to help you through the tough spots, and give you advice on how to cope with the upheaval.

It might help you more to have a visit with a real dietitian who sees you, talks to you, gets to know you and you both map out a plan of eating that gives you more calories, your calories are really too low, when you consider that you have to eat that way for the rest of your life, not just to "lose weight". Think lifetime, and perhaps an anti depressant might help you, it helps some people, but not all people.

I started with Sparkpeople to keep me focused with my foods by journaling everything I eat. I started four weeks ago at 172. I did really well and stayed focused and concentrated on what works for me, staying at appx. 1250 cals a day and I got down to 166. I started feeling good about myself. Then about a week and a half ago, problems in the family, changes happening at work and so on caused me to lose my focus. Now all the focus had to go elsewhere. I had no choice, Now I feel I can't focus on myself at the same time as focus on the needs of others. It's taking too much out of me I am a 59 years old woman. I really try hard but feel out of control. I am back up to 170 and worried. Does anyone have any suggestions? During the hard times I've felt very sad and cried a lot (elderly parents hardships and injuries, and loneliness). I start every morning and I have not been able to stay focused with journaling my foods. I have started craving sweet again in which I was doing so well before. I have not been able to drink more water... and so on and on. Just need to know I'm not alone and how do I get back on track, eventhough I'm still stressed out. Thank you. emoticon
