Over the past week

Monday, November 22, 2010

I have been depressed and greatly slacked off on exercising and more or less ate what ever I felt like. I did not gain weight and I did not lose weight so I would say I am at least learning better habits. In the past I could have easily gained 3- 5 pounds during a week of depression. I am still in quiet a funk, but I am really trying to stay on track. I am not worried about Thanksgiving or the left overs since i plan to pack my guest up with pie and left over. I also make up turkey pot pies the next day and freeze them. I pack them full of veggies and use a lighter gravy as sparingly as I can. I have been bad on tracking food and exercise, but i really need to get on track since it is one of the more helpful tools for me.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. emoticon

    Hang in there. I seriously think this time of year attacks all of us that suffer from depression and anxiety...ugh! But I'm proud of you that you have maintained! That is the most important thing of all, learning to be good enough to maintain. That way when we do lose, we won't gain, because we've learned the rights and wrongs. I, myself am worried about the holidays... I was out there ahead of reaching my goal, but i put on 2lbs this past week because I've been careless and emotionally eating and just generally in a funk myself and just not caring...a dangerous thing... So I'm trying to pick myself up and tomorrow out, keep my numbers right!! I know that I will probably indulge a smidgen on Thanksgiving, but I don't plan on killing myself and I plan to get right back on track from there on out... I've found I feel crappy, fat and excessively bloated when I overeat...and when I am don't, I can tell a difference in the way my stomach sits and I feel skinnier...which is a step in the right direction... Hang in there woman - we can do this!

    I always have problems this time of year. At least this year my mood is mostly good; I'm just not getting much done. The apartment is a mess! Also, at least 2 weekends in a row I've brought junk into the house and pigged out; ugh.

    So at this point, through about February my intention is to keep moving, keep the junk out of the house (since I can't resist it) and just make it through this down-time of year. I always start perking back up again about February. How about you?

    Wow, you really are a good cook; homemade, healthy turkey pot pies sound great.

    I hope you come out of your depressive funk soon, it can be very hard this time of year,when the days are so short and we don't get as much sun. My doctor put me on 5000 IU of Vitamin D3 and it has really helped me alot. You might ask your Dr. about it. Have a nice Thanksgiving. DE emoticon
