Here I Go AGAIN!!!!!!

Saturday, August 31, 2013

It's been almost 2 years since I started this journey and after losing 40 lbs. with a lot of hard work I fell off the wagon big time! 16 months later I've gained 50 lbs back and my depression has been so bad meds. don't even work anymore! So I decided no one else could do anything about it and I best be doing some major soul searching and quit feeling sorry for myself. I have to get healthy again. I am so tired of changing meds for this depression and nothing working so I decided the only way to go is eating right, exercising, and get my heart right with God again. It's been 4 days now and instead of going on another depression med I thought I'd start walking at least 30 minutes a day, get rid of the sugar , eat less and pray like mad! It's working!!!! I am starting to feel better and my anxiety is way down! Thank you Lord for giving me strength. I met a new neighbor who just lost 85 ilbs. in 8 months and got totally pumped. Thanks Marta for giving me the motivation to get going again! So here I go again and this time I will take one day at a time and try not to get overwhelmed with the "BIG" picture. I am so glad to be back and hope to meet some friends to help each other stay motivated.

    emoticon back!! Walking to help curb your depression is a great idea!! Exercise is such good medicine for depression. There are depression medications out there that do not cause weight gain. I know that Wellbutrin is one of them, because I've taken it for years. Perhaps you can talk to your doctor and ask him/her to research an antidepressant that doesn't have the negative side effect of weight gain for you to try. Don't despair there is a medication that will work for you, although it may be taking a long time to find. I can relate to that!!! Getting outside will help your SAD systems too, so walking is a good for that too. The light even on cloudy days will help. Joining the Biploar Mania team will help you to cope too. It's a great team with a great leader and it's very positive in nature. I wish you great success with your goals!! Take care and God bless, Deb
