My KOPS status is in jeopardy now. . .

Thursday, September 13, 2012

This evening at our TOPS meeting weigh-ins I have gained 1.75 lbs which put me over my 3 lb above goal limit. Every time I take a Rx for depression they cause me to sleep more and to gain weight and I get so discouraged. My divorce hearing is in 2 weeks, I'm hoping once I get my house emptied of all his things I can relax and quit taking the Rx. My doctor said I'd probably be fine when I didn't have this daily coping with everything. Thank heavens he will be moving to another town about 40 miles from here. I need prayers for strength to get this weight off and to keep my sanity too.

    prayers and hugs to you. You can do it. Hopefully (like you said) when your divorce is final things will settle down and you can stop the meds.

    Your page says that dancing helps you feel better in the winter months. Is there any kind of dancing or activity that you could do now? Even just a 5 minute boogie to a beloved song might help a little.

P.S. SparkPeople's cardio videos can be fun (coach Nicole is so sweet and encouraging),
and YouTube has some fun ones (I even tried Zumba one day. It was a hoot!)

    don't fret too much about it I know form experience with depression that the more you focus on it and stress of it the worse it gets. You have a lot going on right now so just focus on getting through the immediate and try to stay on track as best you can and then pick yourself up and move forward from there!!
