Almost 2 years ago I left a fantastic job, beautiful home and wonderful friends because I fell in love with someone from another state. I was so excited to embark on a new life with someone that is finally nice and cares about me. In a million years, I never dreamed that I would not be able to find a job and that he would lose his. We are very fortunate that he has investments etc. so that we would not lose the house or anything like that but we basically have no life. I was used to being active at my job and now I just sit around feeling sorry for myself. I am lucky that I have only gained 11 pounds because I know that I could be gaining more if I didn't watch it. I have done Weight Watchers for years but decided to change over to SP because I like the idea of counting calories and got tired of counting points. I did their Filling Foods program as well and it worked for the first week but after that.....I know the answer is to get moving but I am depressed and too tired. I do try to keep busy at home cleaning or doing laundry or cooking (don't worry, I cook lowfat meals from SP). I just want to go back home, find a job there and have my old life back, something that can't happen. There, I am done feeling sorry for myself.
