The Celiac test was negative, so I can eat gluten, just not dairy and mysteriously my anemia numbers are back to normal. so back to exercise this week! I am up to 15 minutes a day 3x a day and not quite ready for the 20+ minutes adding Rhythm boxing would be.

I hope everyone is doing well!

So I had my appointment on the twentieth and they said two things and maybe more are going on.. They believe I am gluten intolerant and maybe have Celiac disease, tests will show whether I have Celiac, but regardless I'm probably going to have to give up items with gluten in them. At current I want to see if I can still eat soy/oats even though they are sometimes cross-contaminated with wheat products. After subtracting milk from my diet for about 4 days and then adding it back in, I can also say I am lactose intolerant. I have procedures scheduled for this wednesday, the 17th of September and hopefully if they do blood tests they can tell the rest then.

Had a stomach oopsie yesterday. Dragged my feet to see my specialist so the GP discontinued the prescriptions for me.. how thoughtful! So Dad and Mom picked up Prilosec OTC and I'm taking two pills to equal my subsciption dose. My appointment is on the 20th.

Playing HabitRPG, Superbetter, and Mindbloom to help me with habits. In Superbetter I started a "Power Pack" about Fun Days.. so I've scheduled a trial Fun Day for the 15th and a mini-vacation of Fun Days for the 28th through 30th. I think I want to do that twice a year from now on.

I'm doing a lot better we have to see if it will hold..

Today I set out to make it a laundry day.. I also babysat and went to my friend's pool and put my feet in (no swimsuit) Next time I'm going to wear leggings and a tshirt and go in!

When I came home I had crippling anxiety about approaching Dad tomorrow. A different friend talked me through it and I was able to relax.

It took me a day or two to quit having the positive symptoms so badly, but then I started struggling with negative ones. I''ve been decompensating for the rest of last week I think

I agree. I had this guy accuse me of stealing a camcorder out of his truck since I was the last guest in it. I don't steal. This guy has schizophrenia. He also went around in my circle of supportive friends saying I had 'black auras' on my hands, meaning I stole from everyone.

No way. Thank God my friends network supported me: They knew he was lying and they think he makes up such stories about everyone because he develops schizophrenic fixations upon people.

He also thought I was in love with him. Never once did I fall in love with him.

I feel like the time I was in his truck, that now today, he deliberately set this up just so he can say I stole his camcorder just to be a mean person, or to get everyone to think I'm the thief around the recovery center. If people believed him, I could have been hurt, even physically.

So I went to one of the peer assistants, called the police, and even told in person to each person in my network that I did not steal a camcorder from his truck. They all said "We know. He's just delusional again and needs his medications."

I had a friendship with him until this unjust accusations, but now I can't even speak to him. I asked one of the counselors there to explain to him I didn't steal the camcorder and to ask him to stay away from me in the lounge and group meeting areas, and outside. He has and the counselors acted in my defense.

This is one rare time that I've had friends rally to my support. Usually, I don't have so many friends or people who would stick up for me. I've had to do it, sometimes unsuccessfully, all my life, but now since joining this wellness center for the mentally ill, I'm safe. I'm happy about how this was handled.

I don't steal. I was shocked to be accused of this, and I was shocked at how intricately this a hole formed a web about me to others that, if believed, could have got me injured.

So I got my suspicions confirmed.. he'd stolen from one of my other friends first.. but they didn't warn me because they didn't think he'd steal from Roger and I, just them. I think theives steal from whoever is around them, from personal experience. Robin Hood is just a myth.

I'd also like to give a little shoutout to the group.. I know no one has been posting here lately, but my funding is no longer acceptable to my mental health agency, so the best of worlds probably means that I either get no therapy or months between sessions. I'm hoping someone can come back to the boards to be an accountability partner and check in with me. Probably wishful thinking. Best of worlds.. I go from seeing someone for my meds every 3 months to every 6.

The director of the office I go to said she'd try for that.. but no promises. I'm feeling very scared and alone.

So life has been a little bumpy lately.. I have a new therapist that I love, but she is leaving in May sometime and she is gone after Thursday for three weeks, which means I just have a couple of more sessions with her. I feel a little bad that I haven't progressed further with my goals but I'm happy with the changes I'm making, I think they've brought Roger and I closer and have furthered my spiritual life/goals even, due to some of the ways we've decided to spend the time.

I was being woken up at night, which was interfering with me getting sleep, so we instituted 2hrs of "couple time" before bed. We started out with a marriage improvement book and went on to devotional and bible reading. Lately that's only been taking one hour, so we've added time to watch anime or tv shows as well. Last night we watched three episodes of Sword Art Online, an anime that reminds me of the .hack//sign anime series.

The bumpy part is my wallet was stolen. I can't prove it because I am so disorganized, but I think it happened while I was doing someone a favor. It sucks that they didn't appreciate it enough to leave my belongings alone.

I am really happy with my progress so far.. The very day that I saw my clinician, I contacted two of the three people I could phone and talked to them! That is so unreal for me! Charting all my food isn't really going as planned. And I still need to do my three times of exercise for the week, but I'm confident that it is going to go well!

well, I met with my clinician and we are starting with the micro-actions. She said its like building muscles.. and that that is a perfectly acceptable place to begin. I completed 2 of 3 microactions. I am exercising 3 times a week for 15 minutes and upping it to 20 minutes as of today. I talked with my SO about some needs. and I really need to phone people in between seeing them in person, but that one has to stay the same because I didn't do it this week.

I have before.. but most of my goals are in the way of micro-action steps (get up at 7am, etc)
I don't know about how to fit them into a plan.. I don't seem to be very consistent.

Healthy, have you been seeing a counselor and/or psychiatrist? I know I have to go see mine soon-I made an appointment-because I'm seeing Kathy in the mornings. I don't know if it's grief or my hallucinations coming back. Sometimes a med change is in order. I hope you find your way out of this place!!

Ani-Lilangel, I hope you are finding your way through life. If you need anything, you can Sparkmail me!!!

Istra, have you tried Sparkpeople's SMART goal techniques?

Happy New Year, Healthy!

Sorry to hear that you've been in a slump.. same with you Ani-LilAngel ..
I'm not doing so well myself. Psychosis isn't as much of a problem as motivation is toward my goals. I really need to get myself in to the doctor and counselor soon.

Happy New Year Butterflies! I am just pulling out of a bad slump of psychosis and med changes. I'm finally starting to feel better and more functional. I lost my job and am struggling with applying for disability as well as applying for jobs in my area. I tried interviewing before my meds were right and there was no way anyone would hire my crazy self. I'm not giving up on finding work but no one has been posting jobs over the holidays so hopefully by early next week there will be more things to apply for.

Much sparkling goodness to you friends!

I don't know, Oona.. I have no experience with Klonopin. The closest I get to an anti-anxiety drug is Lexapro or its generic Escitalopram.

You can mask a lot of things with meds.. but also you have to be able to function eventually.. I hear a lot of comments like that about depression.. a lot of people think that if you take meds that you are just masking the emotions that you really have inside of you.. but if you have an imbalance, one that is not going to go away with right thinking, or coping, or with time, then obviously you need the medicine. Since some people have found more ways of coping with diabetes than just insulin, Im starting to hear the same things about that.. but it used to be that you'd never say to an insulin dependent diabetic to just forgo the insulin...

How much were you taking before now? Versus the three a month? Maybe you need more than three but less than what you were taking? maybe even that is just being cruel.. I don't know what these meds do to you as side effects. Its possible that your friends are right.. and its possible that they are completely wrong.

When I started taking psychiatric drugs I worried a lot about what it would do to me and whether I would quit being me. I thought I'd just be in a medicated haze and not deal with things, and indeed, that's what the first drug I was put on, depakote, did to me. I didn't care if I ate, the only time I got up on my own was to use the restroom and I didn't shower on my own, it was a nightmare. The second one was all wrong for me and shot me into psychosis right and proper. The third one was the right one and it was like it gave me back to myself. I was no longer suicidal all the time. I was no longer angry at the world all the time. I was still cynical but I had that spark back.. The will to look again at the bright side of things and hope. To remind myself there was still good in people and that, maybe, life was worth living after all. And I started to get better...... and I found my other half... and I repaired my relationship with my family........ A couple of years and I was finally able to sit down and read again... to not hear voices ALL of the time.. just some of the time and to not deal with them is bliss..

Maybe you should write out what your friends have said and what you feel is going on, which is opposite, and discuss it with a counselor or your doctor. If you haven't already, you should probably write out as much as possible on the subject in a notebook or somewhere offline, so you can be private and relatively sure no one will see it. Then after you are sure of your feelings take it with you or not to your appointment. Then destroy it afterward.

Personally, it sounds like you are suffering more than you need to be, but that your friends are worried that you are taking them way too often. I know some of it is addictive but I don't know anything about Klonopin. Three a month sounds way too few however. I'd be for two a week at least.. but then, like I said, I don't know anything about them.

Hi, all. I have a question for you. I was previously on Klonopin for anxiety and was taken off it last July. My doctor said that I will have more energy and such without it. When Kathy died, they gave me a new prescription for as needed. I was taking it everyday for about 2 weeks and then my friends told me that I was "masking" my grief with it and I should stop taking it. So I did. My SIL, who is helping me with my mental health now, is giving me 3 a month. I spend a lot of time feeling anxious and nervous and wondering how many more days til I get more now. Should I say something to her about wanting to take it more and talk to the dr. about possibly being put back on it? I took one last night and felt good and was able to focus and concentrate on something other than my anxiety and get stuff done. Is it in my head or what?!?!?!

Hello, I am back. I've been home for about 3 weeks now. I have been exercising and eating well for the past 2. I have lost about 4 1/2 lbs. I am preparing myself for life on my own and losing weight is something that I would like to do.

went to church.. lunch... atm.. rite aid for prescriptions.. library for holds and an ILL (inter-library loan) feeling pumped.. now just to go on. I started watching extreme weight loss and then chickened out at the point when the guy started telling the camera that he'd found a way to cheat at his weigh-ins. He was going to the 9 month weigh in with Chris and I could NOT look at what that would do to Chris' face when he found out it was all a lie. I just couldn't deal with it for some reason.. Stupid me.. not being able to deal with the aftermath of someone else's dastardly action. But that's just the way it rolled today. Plus that show always makes me feel like if I lose the weight I have to have the surgery, and I just know that's not in the cards for me.

I'm not sure.. I suppose I could try them, or at least work on flexibility if I can't work on strength or cardio right now. It would probably help the stress. One of my cousins dropped dead yesterday, literally, because he didn't go into see the doctor when he felt bad. The whole thing is complicated and my family is getting wrapped up in drama between the parents and siblings and the whole thing about the ex-wife and the estate. I also stayed up too late last night and was watching netflix streaming. A program called "Too Cute" to try to relax, and it did help take my mind off things for a while. (Three litters of kittens from different breeds, from birth to adoption) I enjoyed myself watching the episode so much that I stayed up populating my queue.

I'm pretty tired tonight. I'm going to bed soon.

Anemia is really serious, I feel bad for you. Would any of the seated exercise videos they have be okay for you? I tried them and found them good for me. Anything to release some of the tension of the car payments. But it sounds like you're handling it well.

It was interesting, but I haven't been back since first exploring Tumblr. Instagram I hear a lot about too. Primarily I'm on facebook, although a friend invited me to her LinkedIn circle.

I'm afraid that with the anemia posing a risk of strain on the heart if I exercise, that I'm gaining weight again, although everyone tells me that I look like I'm losing weight when I see them.

We just got a car loan and bought a car. It was emotionally taxing and financially a huge question mark. It seemed like every time we turned around the monthly payment was going up, but finally we were out the door with paperwork in hand and after initially panicking, I crunched numbers and we should be okay. We just won't have extra to spend for the next 30 months.

Congratulations on your weight loss! I'm just checking in. I've never been on Tumblr but I just got on to Pinterest and Google + so I guess Tumblr and Instagram are the next steps :)

I can hardly keep my self going on just one or two boards, let alone a lot of other sites. It is nice to read what others say sometimes and I do find some good ideas and help, but I just cannot keep my mind on track to keep it up.

Were you able to get all your cleaning done?

We had company Sat. and I was feeling really down in the mouth. The move took a lot out of me. But things are slowing down now and Im feeling the let down bad.

On a good note Ive lost 2 more pounds.

It was the Lord's Day but the house was just sooo bad. Roger asked me really politely to clean. I spent around 2 hours (with lots of breaks) earlier working on laundry, before I got distracted by tumblr (does anyone else here use tumblr?).

I'm not really cool with having another blog site/social media site, but I was looking for a group one of the co-leaders of Partnership Accountability to the Finish Line (Spark Team I belong to) was mentioning to me. I didn't find them, but I did find a weight loss blog.

It is... and it does go by fast. While you may miss her when she leaves, make the most of and try to make as many memories with her while she is with you. Sometimes we (or at least I) shortchange the joy of the present moment by concentrating on the eventual parting.

I'm battling allergies and just took an anti-histamine. In other news, I know I need to do housework. The house is atrocious and it affects my significant other because he has OCD and is naturally very clean and organized, but I keep putting it off anyway.

That probably feels really good to have the move behind you.. moving is a really big stressor.

Today was a good day. We went to Sam's Club and Walmart and then walked to the library and back. I donated a lot of books that I decided I didn't need. When we got back it was about 7pm. I played some video games and then watched the end of Jeopardy and then Extreme Weight Loss on ch.4. Then I finally dusted off the fitness video games and did 13 minutes of Rhythm boxing.

Tomorrow I volunteer again and then see my Avon lady to make orders and to set up the beginning of Christmas presents for this year (going to mail 10-20 samples each person and ask them to select 3 to 5 and one out of those 3-5 to have sent to them sooner than the rest)

Well the move is all done and now its time for unpacking boxes. Have been at it for 2 days. It is nice to be with family. The work out is not bad either. Hope your all doing well.

I'm glad to hear your getting back to your volunteer work. It is always nice to get out of the house and do something that you like doing. Sorry to hear about the headache you had. I suffer from migraines so I know the feeling when one hits and you are down for the count.

Take care.

It's really difficult for me to say 'don't be afraid' because I know you still injured yourself before, and that is important not to have happen again... **Hugs** If your back is bothering you, do chair routines help any or do they upset it too?

I'm doing a little better since my volunteer work has restarted, though I was down for two days with headaches. I'm feeling better again and ready to get up and go!

I have been feeling really down in the dumps and not doing much of anything. I don't particularly know why. I'm still not loosing though so I know I need to move somehow. I'm just thinking of walking in the house for 20 min a day. I had been doing that before I hurt my back. I just need to get back at it, but fear has stopped me.

I'm glad that your back is doing better again!!!!!!!! That is really exciting news. What type of exercise/activity are you thinking of doing?

My weekend was bad, but I don't want to talk about it. I'll be okay if I can keep out from under the covers..

My back is almost 100% again... PTL! Not doing much of anything though as the big move will be Friday and I do not want to hurt my self again before then, so I will take it easy for the week. The only thing that I will need to do is mow and I will do that tomorrow and then again on Sat., maybe. Things never go the way we plan it seems. Well I'm still holding at the same weight as last week, but at least I'm not gaining. Hope you all have a good week.

Well, its going to be a bit hard for me this weekend. My parents are in Eastern Washington, so I won't be going to church or anything. Need to schedule meeting Bonnie on Wednesday as well, since my Mom still doesn't know the rest of her schedule.

I had a reasonably good day today. I got up at 7 but then went back to bed until around 1pm (that wasn't the good part) but then I got together my library materials that were waaaay overdue and went for a walk with Roger, my significant other, to the library.

I was supposed to clean house, but then got involved watching the Seahawks preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. We won! YAY! I've decided to donate the book I bought on football to the library. I'm not sure why, but it makes perfect sense to me right now, so I don't think I need it.

This morning I spent 3 hours doing deep cleaning my house... mainly the floors. Tomorrow I will spend time scrubbing out the bathroom and dusting. Both I hate. I haven't dusted in a few months and I can tell it is way past time. It would be easier to just go through stuff and get ride of all the nic nacks. People like to give me stuff and it just becomes a chore to have it all. my book shelves are filled to the hilt to and I really need to spend time going through my books. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow too.

Well at least I did get some more movement time in.

Hope you all had a good day!

I know what you mean on the not being able to mow so long on account of the rain!! wow! August has been one of the wettest Augusts on record here in southcentral Kansas... the guys got out and mowed the front yard a day or two ago, and the back yard needs to be mowed. Still kinda boggy in places...and YES! it counts as exercise!!

Got a break in the rain this AM so went out and mowed. It has been 8 days so it was way over grown. we usually mow every 4 to 5 days. It was so wet and long that we had to mow once on the high setting and then again on the low setting. It takes an hour each time. My husband helped me so I mowed about 75 min In total time. It was comfortable out so I did not feel like I got over heated like I normally do. I am hoping that this time I will not end up with a headache. I normally do for a day or two. I am sure it is mostly due to over heating of my brain, and maybe pollen when the grass is dry.

Any way I don't have to walk in the house today, cause I got my time in mowing.

I lost another pound after last week of staying pretty much the same. but I will not log it till I loose 5 more total. I had 2 days this last week that I went over in calories, but I started walking in my house for 15 to 20 min so it has helped I think. gave my self a jump start.

Hope you have a good day.

I'm ready for a nap now, I'm pooped!

Happy Monday. I'm making veggie taco soup. smells good and so far taste good only 200 calories for 3 cups of it. Not a bad lunch I should say. Trying to think of things to stay busy with so I'm not in front of the TV or on the PC all day. This can be challenging when it is pouring down rain outside all day. And finding the motivation can be even more of a challenge.

Well today is Church and being around a lot of people. It is always stressful on Sundays but I force myself to go as I know it is good for me as I really need to get out of the house for more then just Phyc appointments. The best part is that my husband will go with me.

I blew it last night. I was all done eating and just over 1200 calories, when I got this horrible craving and I ended up eating 800 calories more. So today I am starting all over. I had over 2 weeks of no binging. Well maybe I can have more next time.

It is very good to know your own body. Let us know how that works.

I'm rather disgusted with myself today and don't really feel like writing about it.. its all junk food and cookies and staying up late and not showering for me today. :P Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. Tomorrow is the memorial for my Great Aunt Maxine though so I'll probably be thinking about the end of life a lot. So that's not promising.

Here is what I think. I started adding sweetener, not sugar to my coffee. I think that it is very true that it makes your body think that it is sugar and holds on to it and makes you crave more. The only other thing that I have done is bought a bag of honey nut cheerios and I think that the sugar and carbs have increased my cravings, so the goal is to stop the coffee and stop the cereal and go back to oats or a egg every morning. If I do not start the day out with these things I do not crave it during the day. That means I need to give up my candy for now and maybe permanently. If I don't have it I don't want more.

Today has ben a hard day at wanting to eat all day... I have been craving comfort foods really bad. I think it is due to the dreary weather and no sun. I have not wanted to stay in bed or anything but just eat. It is 3 in the afternoon and I already have almost 1200 cal. I guess it is just a plate of veggies for dinner to night.

The weather is really gloomy today, and so am I. I just feel like climbing in bed and not coming out till next spring. I think I'm going into the fall hibernation mode early. I also discovered that if I'm at the high end of my calorie intake I do not loose weight I actually gain, so I am going to have to drop it back down to the low end. at least It only took me a few days to learn this, now I can fix it and not get discouraged. It pays for me to log.

Some days my meds make me tired, or to many carbs. I find that if I eat a meal in high carbs I always want a nap afterwards.

I got up at 4 and then went back to bed at 5:30 and slept till 8:30. Then went to take the dog for a nail trim. Now I have nothing for the rest of the day. I know I will probably take another nap this PM. Just seem to get sleepy after lunch most days.

Depression has a lot to do with it too.

Well that is it for now.

I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me!

I think that is a great accomplishment and wouldn't be fast to let go of the candies. Relatively they are so small calorie-wise compared to what you were doing and its working for you!

Today I went to my mental health appointment but then I napped most of the rest of the day after walking home. I'm not sure why, but I am sooo tired today. I was napping as I waited for my appointment this morning.

My biggest problem is evenings. I have finally got some strawberry hard candies and have 1 or 2 pieces after dinner and I'm all set and do not feel the need to snack. I will slowly try to stop having them, but it is hard right now and I'm doing all I can to stay in my calorie range. I have been in range for the last 2 weeks and I'm very happy about that so I'm not going to beat my self up over having a piece or two of hard candy. This is a great accomplishment as I use to binge eat all day and snack all evening.

It's nice that you have something to give you motivation to get out.

I have nothing, so I have to find things around the house and that can be a challenge as I do not have the motivation to even find motivation in things. I decided this time that I am not going to go all out and exercise to the extreme to loose this weight this time as it is not realistic that I'm going to continue when I hit goal, so I am simply going to loose it doing the things I normally do and then maybe as I do loose, my life will become more active with out forcing it. At least that is what I hope for, but nothing is written in stone.

Hope you have a good day!

Good to hear that you are finding things that work for you and are enjoying your new eating habits!

Today I went in to help my mom at the school. Originally I was staying home all of August as well, but she injured herself, so now I want to go in whenever she does so I can help her out. Only going in to work in the library today this week, but I'll see her again Thursday and Saturday and Sunday for other reasons. So I'll be seeing a lot of her this week!

Today I had a problem I have not had in a long time. Getting enough calories in. I felt full after every meal and no extra snacking. I had to come up with something extra to eat for dinner, and now I feel stuffed. It pays to eat right, and the right foods. My husband says, " Honey you are eating way to much." and I say, " I'm not eating enough to get in 1200 calories." What a difference. I know I can do this if I just continue to eat right and make the right choices. It was really hard to want to eat the right things at first, but now I am feeling more confident. I am simply staying away form the junk that I was eating all day and the over eating. Double portions and such. It is nice to feel back on track after so long. I am loosing about 4 oz. a day as I figure it. That is a bout 1 lb. every 3 days. It probably is just the initial loss as my body is adjusting, so I will not get my self hooked on that loss all the time. I thought I would only track my weight every 10lbs down, but have decided to track every 5 instead so I feel more like I'm accomplishing something. It is after all nice to see the little bug on my page move down. I am going to weigh on Sunday's and see how that is going. Nothing is set in stone you know... If it were I would be feeling pretty awful about my self.

Well that is my check in for the day. Hope all of your days are going well.

Well today was my big work out day. Mowing the Yard. We have over an acre to mow and it was close to 80* out when we started. My husband has decided to start helping me which I do appreciate, however, I no longer get in my full amount of time. It takes 45 min to do the front and back yard, and another35 to 40 to do the back 40 as I call it. anyway I cannot really complain we only co the back 40 once a month though so today was the day. I got in an hour's worth he did the rest. being so hot it is good to get a break on and off. I always end up with a headache afterwards due to getting over heated and the mold spores and dust that it kicks up. So right now I'm just feeling the throbbing pressure... The headache is soon going to be full force.

IS I hope you are able to get up and around to day some. Even when I have such a hard time some days I always feel a little better just to move around. Well, Some days. Some days I just don't want to see the world.

Talk at you tomarrow...

I didn't do much of anything to day but laundry and I turned the wrong way and hurt my back again. I have however stayed with in my calorie range the last week and have lost 5 lbs. Im not going to log them yet though as I want to make sure Im at least holding steady and not just a bounce back and forth. I think I will wait to log until I reach 10 down.

Is. I hope you are able to get those few things done that you need. I know how difficult it is to stay out of bed. I slept till past 8 this morn and then took a long nap this afternoon. now its 8 pm and I'm ready to climb back in again.

Well tomorrow is another day.

I'm sorry that you broke something sentimental to you, but I am glad that you got up and did a little vacuuming and dusting. It can be really hard to get going again and little steps count.

I've had a hard time getting out of bed the last two days myself, but I am positive that I will be able to get done what needs doing.

Here for my daily check in. I have been feeling really down in the mouth the last few days and not feeling like doing anything since I hurt my back, and I'm getting sick of it. I did vacuum today and dusted. While dusting I broke a frog shelf sitter that my mom gave me. Well one less thing I say to have to dust. Any way just a little of nothing.

Thank you for the Welcome back. I have had a hard time at trying to find a reason to return, but just had to get sick of being so miserable again I guess. I am really wanting to get back to feeling good about my self and my life. I found much support here before and gave support, but got to where I could not even give it as I felt so worthless. I know I am worth something, but just needed a boost In that category of my mind. Just to loose a lb. a week would be nice. I really am trying to do it this time. I seem to be good at starting out and then puttering out after a few times of failure. So this time I am not getting my hopes up and I'm learning how to be disciplined again. The few minutes it takes to track my food is no more then the few minutes to go to the bathroom. I just have to do it because it is part of my life. It was the only way I made it last time and I know that it is the only way I am going to do it this time.

Well enough of all that I am just checking in for today.

Ani
