    I understand what you are feeling, it's not easy to get out of the what I call the Black Hole, but it's not possible. You gain one pound that's great because you didn't gain 10 or 20 or more. You ate shrimps, which is protein and you walked lots of walking which is great. I think you done well. You were aware of your calories (food) intake and the amount of calories you burned. That saids a lot so please don't down play that. You and your husband will find ways to cut down your bill, You already started with the car. I understand things are a little rocky, but it will work out, when I would have a disagreement with my boyfriend I would clean the closet I remember one time I cleaned the closet 3 times in 2 weeks we were have a rough time then but things turned around. What works for me might not work for you , but you can give it a try. or you can find something constructive during those times. You have already started on your road back with the calories counting, that was one step and you made the green drink that's another step. Put one foot in front of the other small steps. I appreciate your blog entry. depression can be a Bi**h. The good news is we are starting to see when we are in the Black Hole we have to learn ways to get out of it , it's not easy, but it's not impossible.
    I was reading another member's blog, He talked about how some days he just don't want to get up early and exercise. This is what he tells his self:

    I know it's not gonna get you moving this minute. so Let's use this as our mantra
    I'm gonna add to that

    Because you are. Thank You, in the mist of what you are dealing you were there for me and that means so much to me YOU HAVE NO IDEA (getting teary eye) So I know you will get beyond this.
    I believe in you and you will emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have an 04 Elantra. :)
    I am glad that you made your green smoothie. That is the first step in getting the you that you really want to be back. I know how you feel.. one thing starts it, and the spiral starts.... its like a small snowball that starts an avalanche. I can identify with the hubby issues... (believe me).. Things have been looking better there.. I know that the stress can make you just want to throw in the towel and say.. why bother? But you HAVE to look at it in the long run, you have to remember that feeling you had after your c25k the first time you did it. Go back and watch that video, I bet you get sparked to try it out again. You have to remember the feeling of getting on here to tell people they CAN do things they never thought they could. You are an influential and important part of this community. I miss you when you are gone, and worry about you. I really hope you guys can sort out the job/moving thing soon. I know when things are up in the air... you can feel so helpless... like you don't know where your feet will land... But, I have faith in your hope and determination.. and I know you will defeat this. You are worth more than a life lived unhappy.

    Hi...I came across your vblog today, I am so sorry so much is going on in your life. It is overwhelming when you have multiple issues affecting you all at once. Don't be so hard on yourself with your eating, you are aware of how many calories you are taking in and seem to be exercising (walking/hiking) quite abit to help compensate for any excess calories you may consume. You are starting back on the right track with your green smoothie drink and being so very honest on your vblog. You will get righted around, give it time to get things worked out in your life and that weight will start to drop off soon. Take care and the best of luck to you and your family. Cant wait to see pictures of your new car....congratulations!!!! emoticon

    I loved your vlog. You are so personable. I feel all your emotions and can understand most of what you say. I can say that you need to start to see the glass half full rather than half empty. All of what you said was so important and so like everything I deal with daily but you do have a lot of good things going on. I am happy for you. Keep up the smile and work through it. Better days will come! You did great with the diet. As long as you keep aware of it, it will come along.

    Your new car sounds great. You should go for a drive and feel the wind in your hair. There is nothing better than enjoying a new car.

    I want to give you a big hug right now. You are not alone, I have been going through a lot of the same things. I am sorry that you are hurting, but just keep pushing and you will feel more like yourself soon. Don't call yourself stupid though--you threw that second cinnabon away, and you know that you wouldn't have done that a few weeks ago, right? I am sorry that you and your husband are struggling too -- huge hugs on that end. It seems though that you love each other so much and you will get through this touch patch. You will get back to those healthy decisions. You are blogging about it; you are explaining what you want to be doing, and it may not seem like that, but that in itself is a testament to your progress.

    You will get back there. Think of a motivator. Your daughter. Spark People. Yourself. Whatever it is that keeps you going. Think of that when you don't want to work out or when you want to eat badly. It will keep you going.

    Congrats on the new car! That 10 year warranty is pretty awesome. Definitely a reason to buy a hyundai. I have a ford escape that I plan to drive into the ground, and then who knows what kind of car I will get.

    I am so sorry you have been feeling so depressed.I have been where you are.This past year has been sooo miserable for me.My sleeping was messed bad that some nights I did not sleep at all! My dr finally put me on BC pills a couple of months ago (im now on pack 3) and it has made a world of difference!! My family has said that they notice I am in a much better mood and I just feel all around better. I started getting in a funk the last 2 wks and finally I just said no more.I worked out last night and then today made better choices. You CAN get through this!!!! I am here if you ever need anything!!! emoticon
