re the tiredness, I would be inclined to speak with your Doctor about it. It COULD be just because of Depression and any meds you may be on, but there could be medical reasons for it too and blood tests will show those up. Also, SOME medical reasons for tiredness, CAN cause depression.

Let us know how you get on!

I feel lethargic a lot and I'm sure it's due to the various medications I take for my epilepsy. Some days are meant for staying in pjs and watching TV all snuggled up on the couch and other days are meant to conquer the world! I think a visit to the doctor and some lab tests would be beneficial though.

Hi, I'm sorry about your lethargy; I have it quite often too.
As Paul said, if it has been going on for a long time, I would check with your doc.
Mostly I can 'make myself' do things, but some days are just days that I spend in my nightshirt and don't accomplish much at all.
You are not alone!

I tell myself that I will take a shower at 9am and I DO. Then I false myself to put a little makeup on and do my hair. Tidy up. This is especially true on days I have appointments like today. Some days I just don't move off the couch but I am getting better at motivating myself each day.

Had a surgery in July. The weight has been creeping up on me since then. Think I was nervous about exercising. Not an excuse. Seriously was worried about damaging myself. Lost 100lbs back in 2009....20lbs back in past 3 1/2 months. Gotta get active....

When I start feeling yucky, I get myself out on a bike ride! It's good exercise and not too hard to do and the fresh air and change of scenery does wonders for you!!! emoticon

I find it makes getting up and out of the house harder some days than others. I really need to talk myself into it. I actually have to argue with myself to get out the door.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Routine and animals help keep me moving, When I'm down and drained I keep things simple and make sure I get my sleep. If it goes on for a week or more I would consider talking with your doctor or start looking into one. I eventually needed meds to overcome the lethargy.

I'm prone to bouts of depression (accompanies my anxiety disorder) and I'm curious to know how others deal with feeling tired and lethargic all the time in regards to staying motivated - what do you do? How does having depression effect your ability to lose weight and make healthy decisions for yourself?
