Where Have I Been?

Friday, August 31, 2012

For the last 6 months I have been fighting the biggest battle of my life. I was diagnosed with a Major Depressive Disorder. I made the choice to seek help after coming as close to suicidal as I have ever come. I'm positive that my two year old saved my life. I lost a parent at a young age and I still cared enough not to give him the same burden.

I did not, and still have not told my husband about my issues. Maybe I will someday, but my goal has to become stable and having this looming elephant in the middle of my marriage didn't seem like it would help matters any. I started seeing a therapist in June. She put me on a fairly new medication called Viibryd. I have been on it for three months now and I have felt amazing. In fact, things seem more okay than they have felt my whole adult live.

The negitive...?

Although this medication claims to be weight neutral, I have gained 20 pounds since I started taking it. It could be that I am feeling better, have more of an appetite...who knows...but I need to try and deal with this issue not that the other is being resolved. My shrink added 150 mg of Wellbutrin, hoping it will help with the weight. I have been on it for three days. My appetite is dead. I have to struggle to eat...another battle for healthy weight loss....

So im back, hoping the tracking will help. We shall see

  You have quite a burden. Take each day as it comes. Focus on your mental well-being first, then the physical will start to improve. I think the meds are helping and compounding the problem, but your doctor is the best to answer specific concerns. Good luck! emoticon

For My Sanity...

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Today is weigh in day. I have been scared of it all week. I have decided that my weigh ins will be once a month... the next one will be April first. I did notice, however, that I have lost three inches from my waist. I too all the rest of my measurements today and I will be doing this weekly instead.

I'm trying to focus on being healthy. weight lost will be a side effect of that. I don't want to stress over it anymore

    emoticon choice to ditch the scale if it causes you so much stress and focus on the measurements on a weekly basis.
Sometimes the measurements are a better indicator of how we are actually progressing.

Ugh....

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Well, the diet is good and back on track.

Everything else is killing me. I'm having so much stress right now, I think I might explode. I don't know how to vent it. Years ago it was running. It's not realistic with the baby. I can't even get my husband to give up 20 minutes of his precious sleep time so I can go run in the morning. I feel like I have done so well on this diet, but the scale is the same. I don't know where else to cut, without it being unhealthy. I have been putting in 30 minutes of exercise. It's all that is realistic until thinks warm up. I've tried doing aerobics at home with the baby, but he is soooo into everything right now, I end up chasing him half the time.

Even as I type this, I feel like im making excuses, but I really don't know what else to do. I want this weight gone so badly it brings tears to my eyes. It's just the cherry on top of a mountain of worries.

    We all have good weeks and bad weeks on these crazy adventures of ours... If you eat less processed foods, and try to find exercise around the house (DVDs? treadmill while the baby naps?... carrying the baby tones up arms!)... if you FEEL better then the weight WILL come off eventually... maybe not as fast as you'd like, but FEELING it is the first step!! You are doing GREAT! It's rough out there... but you are TRYING! and your body will catch up to your mind :) Hang in there!!

My First Cheat day

Sunday, March 04, 2012

Today is my first cheat day, a well planned one. I thought it was important to still track my food to see the damage.

Lunch was 1100 calories....Yikes

I only have dinner to go, so I will pile onto my already 1700 calorie day. The think is, this was a day that I would have considered mild in my old life...It's kinda gross.

    I like the sound of this. I have a "cheat day" planned for 5 weeks time, but only if I stay 100% on track until then. Gives me a little something to look forward to. Although my worry is that by the time I get there, my way of eating is going to so ingrained and second nature that I'm not going to want to go crazy, and will feel 'gross'. It's a hard one I think. I don't feel like I'm depriving myself of anything, or craving anything, so I don't knowhow it's going to pan out. I do definitely like the idea though.

    I have planned on every two weeks if im on track. Tracking food on cheat days was a great thing for me too...I'll have no problems getting back on it

    I like the Cheat Day Idea. I think that will help me in not binging. How often do you have these.
