4 kg/8.8 lbs in one week

Tuesday, January 22, 2013



I just don't know what to do.

Yes, I'm sick. I'm not that sick.

Yes, I'm on meds. Not meds that do this (antibiotics and ibuprofen, plus my usual anti-thyroid).

Yes, I've been eating crap. Not that much crap.

No, it's not my scale. The scale at the doctor's office said the same thing.

No, I haven't been exercising. Between doctor and dentist appointments and driving my kid around, there has been no time after work. And I have been too tired/in pain to get up and do anything in the morning. It's all I can do to get to work on time.

Excuses? Maybe.

I am depressed. Give-up-forever depressed. Everything is bad. None of my clothes fit. I don't know what I'm going to wear to work next week. At this rate, a tent. Luckily, there are plenty of tent-makers in this part of the world.

ETA: I eat almost no processed food. I eat hardly ANY food because of my tooth. I can't eat salad or anything that requires much chewing - too painful. When I say I'm eating crap, I'm eating peanut butter, or toast, or graham crackers. (There has been some ice cream in there, I'll admit.)

I doubt you have gotten 30800 extra calories in a week. Something weird must be going on.

    Don't give up:( It will be okay. Winter is always a hard time to exercise and stay on track. Remember, little steps! You can do it! You don't have to wear a tent! Don't even think like that:)
