I'm Moving, But I'm Still Here (on SparkPeople)!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I can't believe it's been almost two months since I posted a blog. I could say that it's been because I'm really busy, but the truth is that I've been pretty depressed and just didn't want to be a total bummer. Turns out that I wasn't just pretty depressed...I was clinically depressed. Life really took a toll on me these last two years, but I'm working my way out and am already feeling a lot better. Hopefully, I'll feel up to posting regularly again. We shall see.

I have not lost weight, but I am very happy to be maintaining. By maintaining I mean that I keep gaining and losing the same pound or two over and over, but I'm keeping within a very small range so that is very good. I hope to exercise more once I stop working. That's right! I finally got a paying job (it's full-time temporary), but just in time for me to leave it, because I am moving to England in about three months. Yay!
I'm really excited (and a bit scared). There's so much that needs to be done to get ready for the move, including finishing up at work...the sooner I finish my two final projects the sooner I can stop working and start focusing on the move and my health again. I also hope to have a bit more time to dedicate to SparkPeople. I miss my Peeps!

I hope you are doing well, feeling well, and enjoying spring!

    Thinking of you, missing you, can' wait to see you! So glad you are maintaining. I am doing the same thing w/the same two pounds over and over. I am doing all of the same things as before, but not losing. But...I think if I tracked my food, I would find out why.....
    SO happy to hear your job is going well!!!!!!!!
