Thanks so much to all of your for your love and support. I really appreciate your advice and kind words.
Yesterday I went for a long walk after I finally got out of work and I just came back from a quick walk at lunch. I am sitting at my desk, sweaty, but it felt nice to get out. And I've made plans with friends and "me" time, so that should help me with my depression.
This really is a process, right? I'm just glad that I am not falling back into old routines, where when I was really depressed I would binge eat. I guess I am doing better than I thought!

I have been struggling the past few days, struggling with my depression, lack of energy, and just not sleeping well. I am just so tired all of the time and I dont really have any interest in doing anything. The only thing that I can think of is that it will be a month this week that my grandfather passed away. Maybe the shock of everything is wearing off, and now I am really experiencing the sadness and loss.
Its just been getting harder and harder to function at work. I really do not have any interest in doing anything and its a struggle to do the normal stuff during the workday. I am doing my work right and competently, but I know I am not doing it as awesome as I could because of my frame of mind.
I think exercise will help me, and as soon as I am able to leave work today I will leave to go for a long walk. That usually helps. I dont know what else to do. I am just so tired and barely functioning.

Today is laundry day, and I was digging through my clothing to try to find something to wear. I found these pair of brown pants that the last time I wore I felt like I was going to explode out of them--I could barely zip them up and button them, and moving in them was painful. But, today, I was out of options. So I tried them on and....
THEY FIT GREAT!!!
They are comfortable, dont feel like a seem is going to burst--basically, they fit like pants are supposed to! and i put on a cute matching top that before would let the muffin top roll on out, but, I must say, I look pretty good!
I am almost tempted to put some pictures up! (My husband and I took some pictures to document my progress!)
This just encourages me to keep going!

So I have been really tired lately, stressed, and just not feeling 100%. Truthfully, after work, I just wanted to go home and go to sleep while watching tv.
BUT, instead of driving past the gym tonite, I had my gymbag already in the car and stopped at the gym. I worked out for over an hour and felt so much better leaving the gym than I did before I went there. I feel re-energized and stronger.
I'm so glad I prepared myself for the gym and gave myself no excuses not to go!
