Dusting myself off and Starting Again!
Monday, April 13, 2009
They say you aren't a failure for falling -- just for not trying again. So here I am -- starting again!
I've been trying to figure out if I get depressed and eat -- or if I eat and it makes me depressed. I think the cycle is that I get stressed out and then reach for food -- and the poor food choice is what interacts with my system to make me depressed. Another factor is letting other things get in the way of my exercising -- that makes me tired, which makes me depressed. If I add to that poor food choices -- forget about it!! The factor that tops it all off is not taking the time to check in here for support.
I'm going to my doctor for my annual check-up this morning. I'm going to talk with him about my mood swings; not sure if I need medication or not. He'll definitely notice the weight gain. But it's ok! I'm not a failure until I stop trying! And I'm not giving up!!
