Emotions running high

Friday, January 21, 2011

Well, today was weigh in day and I gained weight again. My life has just seemed too busy lately. I can't seem to find time for myself or get enough done. I feel like I'm in a race that the finish line is always moving just out of my view. I found out we are moving into a smaller place and I have been struggling to get rid of some things and I have fit in some exercise and have been eating ok. My nutrition report says I'm not eating enough. I feel so down lately and hope my doctor doesn't want to increase my anti-depressants. They make me gain weight too. I hope this mood doesn't last cause I am struggling to keep it together. Sorry I don't want to be a downer but I feel like I'm moving backwards when I'm taking steps to move forward. I hope everyone else is doing well in their journey.

    Hi Melissa, Thanks for the support - I was thinking of you yesterday and wondering if your health was better. I also hope everything goes well with you and I too have struggled with depression most of my life. I find it funny when someone says I am so positive...funny how we mask ourselves so often in front of other people...I am here and checking in almost every day...I used to say to myself about my "duties" housework is never ending therefore I am finished when I want to be lol. Hugsss g/f

    Life has a way of holding us back... I some times picture myself trying to pull away as other try and pull me back. Because if I do well and change my self they will feel bad about them selves because they can not find the motivation that I have. Everytime I go to the gym I dread going, but everytime I leave the gym i'm super glad I was there.

    They say nothing worth doing is easy, so this weight loss thing and healthy life style but really be worth doing. Find people to fill your life with that will make you want to do more, not just for your self but alos for them. Find people that will help feed you the motivation you need, and they feed off of the motivation you give.

    You have a good looking son, and soon he will be into sports and want to do cub scouts and boy scouts... you will love yourself for being healthy to be able to do that for him and with him also... once you get more healthy I almost bet instead of a doc upping your anit depression meds, I bet he could lower them. alot of the "junk" we eat has stuff in it that just makes us blah.

    I truely wish you the best, keep your chin up and remember to smile... it is such a pretty thing to keep all to your self. And when you smile it will make someone else want to smile, and so on and so on. then you can smile even bigger thinking about the chain reaction you just started. :)

    Have a great weekend.
