The scale seems stuck. I am getting frustrated. I am usually so up-beat and unflappable, but my spirits have been dampened the last few days. Usually I am the one offering encouragement, but I find I am in need of it now.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I truly hope I will meet it with my usual enthusiasm and positivity!

Best wishes to all for a healthy month!

have been struggling and today is high anxiety. I have a lot of different things that have set it off and one of them is the fact that my dad just went through 11 hours of back surgery today.

I was invited to join this team by Peggy. Im hoping by joining a group with such a Positive name that I will find some happiness on my journey. I try to stay upbeat but sometimes its just too hard. Yesterday, for example, I was SO careful all day with my cals, and when I plugged in my numbers at the end of the day, I went over my cals. by about 300. Everything else was good. Needless to say, I was crushed. Im still fairly new and have lost weight, but I am so scared of "setbacks" and failure. I dont ever EVER wanna be 250 again..im so frightened I will be despite my best efforts. I think that I need some positive energy in my life. I mean, I do have a great support system at home and surround myself with people who build me up not tear me down. Ive found some great stuff on SP both about nutrition and mental well being. I love it on here honestly. I just need some advice, info, whatever u guys may have to offer as to how I can stop beating myself up over things...and mind u this was only my first "setback" what if there are more? How do I handle that? I will be honest, because that is key, I am bipolar with paranoid psychosis. I am however on a great regimen of meds and have my symptoms in check (for the most part). U can read my page and blogs to find out more about that, if u want. Because the chemicals in my brain are "Unique" (i like that term), I have a hard time putting things into perspective. Anyone else like that? Any kind of input is SO appreciated...As u can tell, Im a talker. I post, I blog, and for some reason Im not scared to share my "limitations" and be honest with people and let them know me for me...so thanks to all for inviting me in and reading this. Looking forward to learning more..much love and encouragment, Courtney emoticon

Starting over at 50...lost motivation for life in general over the past few months. Had lost almost 20 lbs. last year and managed to keep most of it off (up and down 5 lbs.) Now I need to snap out of this depression and get back to my goals of taking care of myself again. I'm probably Adult ADD (never tested) but this is a hinderance. I have trouble making decisions and get easily discouraged with my progress or lack of. I fight against a thyroid condition that will never be "fixed" so this takes me to another level in my battle. I'm not giving up but I do need encouragment.

I need as much support as I can get. I used to spend a lot of time on SparkPeople, but work and a toddler took up too much time and I let it slide. My new years resolution is to take care of myself - including taking time to get the support and inspiration I need, putting myself before my work to make sure I take my daily medications and have breakfast before starting the day, and taking every opportunity to exercise.

I've been struggling a lot because of a sudden weight gain earlier this year, that I managed to stop but never lose. Gaining 30 pounds and losing none, a toddler, extremely stressful work situation have significantly impacted my time, motivation and self esteem. Add to it a lingering ankle injury (over a year) and cold/allergy symptoms including asthma, coughing, and congestion since August, and really making any progress seems impossible. I recently got some abnormal lab results as well, so I have additional testing this week, and am just hoping for the best, but I'm scared.

For 2012 I hope to spend more time here and I hope that others who need help and support will come here too. Staying positive can be so hard when times get tough, but this place can always be a source of inspiration if we use it that way. 2012 has to be a year of change and improvement for me!

I have been super busy and sick. I am still coughing like crazy and stuffed up. My eating and drinking are still out of control. I do not know what to do, but yesterday I needed stuff to wake me up. I was walking and doing other things that I needed to do and my eyes were closing all day long.

Hope to meet all the members who joined in my absence. Injoy:) Carolyn

I gained 2.5 pounds over my vacation, and I am not happy about it. What is most disconcerting is that I am now over 180 lbs. (181 to be exact). That just kills me! I am going to hit the gym hard this week and really watch my calories. I feel so out of control, and I just hate feeling that way.

Eat right and keep going to the physical therapy. Ask the physical therapist when you can start to work out. They will probably give you some tips.
Good luck!

I fell off the exercise & eating right train for 3 whole weeks, maybe even longer, I need help & support getting back on track. I've recently been going to physical therapy due to a back injury and it just hurts something awful, should I just jump back into exercising or should I just be eating right for now, while I wait for physical therapy to be over and done with? emoticon

I just wanted to request that folks send out some positive and healing thoughts and/or prayers for my 77 year old father. He is in the hospital right now having some trouble with his kidneys. Up until about 6 months ago he was a robust and spry gentleman, and some back pain and now this mystery kidney issue have chipped away at his strength. I am worried about him, though he puts up a brave front. I wish he had been home for Easter.

Thank you!

Had skin cancer cut out yesterday, took an hour because it was larger than it looked on the surface. He got it all and it was the basal cell type. Doc said I might have a black eye, so far I don't. Doc also said it would swell more than it has so far. I will be OK, just need some emotional support.
I am at work today and so far, no pain.
Thanks!

I have been way up with anxiety this week. Today I have been bad enough to be binging half the day and now I need to finish some stuff up and since I am still sick I need to be in bed at a reasonable hour. My anxiety is very high now to the point that I cannot bend my left elbow. I know I would be having an anxiety attack all night if I try to sleep.

Hi Everyone,
I'm stressed out right now. Just heard from hubby's doctor and the last blood tests showed he still has too much cholestrol so they want to double his cholestrol meds and then retest his blood in 3 months. So now on top of the other changes to our diet, I now have to figure out ways to cut the cholestrol down more. Given me a huge headache.
I know Bob is ready to chuck it all. He's such a picky eater and we've changed so much over the last 10 months because of his heart issues. Now we need to do more. And I don't know where to start. I'll add the cholestrol counter to the nutrition page and see what spark allows and go from there. emoticon

CRACKERJACK 50: I need prayers again. My 34-year-old multi-handicapped son is in ICU in Lufkin, TX, in critical condition. He is wheelchair bound and got a urinary tract infection that went septic and he now has pneumonia. His name is Merrik and we are very sad.


PLEASE keep them in your thoughts and prayers...thanks!

Melissa you are so right. I don't have a good self esteem. I don't like myself at all but I do go to counseling for just me and then we have a family and a couples counseling. I'm doing a little better now the when I started but have a very long ways to go. When I start thinking about my problems nothing stops it I just go do whatever and worry my life away anyway. I'm trying to get better but it takes time. Thanks for caring.

Please understand this is only my opinion: I would suggest (after reading your intro and several blogs) that you continue marriage counseling and seek individual counseling as well; you have to learn to love yourself.

As for stress relief, what do you enjoy doing? Perhaps a walk, a bath, writing in a journal, listening to music--or exercising (ever tried pilates, zumba or yoga?)...or even enrolling in a kick boxing class? Anything that makes YOU feel good: )

I hope this helps!


HUGS,

Melissa

I need to figure out how to come down and not stress out so much over my problems. I wrote 2 blogs explaining everything going on but can write it in here if need be.

We've all found ourselves in need of extra support from time to time; as its impossible to keep up with everyone, I'm offering a "place" for members to ask for additional support. Previously, I've posted the "Request for Support" under Team Announcements, but I feel its time we had a Special place.

Whether you're having a family issue, in financial distress or just having an over-all bad day, feel free to ask your PMA family to send extra Positive Vibes your way! If you've read a blog and feel there's someone out there in need to some Team PMA TLC, feel free to add them to the list too: )

As always, feel free to come to your Team Leaders with any concerns, complaints or questions you may have pertaining Sparkpeople!


HUGS,

Melissa
