Been a Little Depressed

Thursday, January 31, 2008

I've been a little depressed lately. I'm not quite sure why. This morning I woke up hoping that we would have 5" of snow so I wouldn't have to go to work. I have been exercising, and eating fairly well (except for the 6 cookies on Monday:), but I've only lost 1/2 pound since last week. On Wednesday, I had actually gained 2 pounds, so I didn't exercise in the a.m. hoping that by changing things up it would shock my boday. Well, it worked. Today I am down 2.5 pounds.

I love to workout outside, but with -0 windchills, that's pretty much unrealistic right now. So...I'm still jumping on my trampoline and working out on the elliptical. Occassionally, I will run some stairs during commercial breaks. I live too far from town to join any sort of gym, so I'm making due with what I have.

Last year during this time of year, the pounds were melting off me. It was amazing--I guess I just want those same results this year. I should be happy that I lost 1/2 pound! I guess I need to focus more on the positive, and not so much on what's going wrong.

I have started reading Purpose Driven Life. I'm on Chapter 2. God didn't make me by accident. He knew that I would be going through these trials at this exact moment. He allows me to have these troubles so that I can grow stronger and more trusting in Him. There are things about me that I don't like (like my BIG nose), but God made me this way for a reason (I don't know why yet, but when I do I will let you know. He gave me my nose to perfectly fit on MY face, and I should be grateful that I have a nose.

    sorry you have been depressed, hope that you can pull yourself out of it soon. When it comes to weight loss you have to be patient you are not going to have the same results every week. You may have had more sodium that made you retain the this week, you may be close to TOM (time of month), You are going in the right direction so don't be depressed about the weight loss. Take what your body is willing to give.
