At the beginning of December I decided to go to weighing in monthly b/c otherwise I tend to fixate on the scale. My weigh in the this morning was down 2lbs!!! Thrilled with that..more would always be nice but it's a heck of a lot better then staying the same or gaining.

Had appts with therapist and dr last week and both went well I guess. Therapist suggested a change in my meds but not sure she is taking my food problem seriously enough but we'll see. Dr agreed to med change but all the other answers were basically that I'm getting older and that my weight is affecting me. Took blood to see if I'm in menopause, know I'm very young for it but certainly getting plenty of the signs of it! lol Headaches he says are tension headaches which he thinks might be eye strain but also stress from being unhappy with my job. Sleep problems are weight affected since sleep study and all blood work in the last 6 months has been normal, lung test and heart test all came back normal.

Otherwise I'm struggling getting my eating back on track and anxious to get to the store this weekend and pick up more fruits and veggies and good snacks. That is still not an excuse for the way I've been eating or for not getting more exercise in. I know deep in my heart that I need to go back to forcing myself to get up in the morning and exercise. Otherwise I am exhausted and/or busy in the evenings.

We are gone the next three days for wrestling and will be late nights and early mornings so will aim for early morning on monday to workout. I will start slowly and build up my time. Maybe that way it won't be such a shock to my always tired body! haha

I have been toying with the idea of giving up pop for a week or the rest of the month but just haven't be willing to commit fully to it yet.

Seems like I had more to say but can't remember it so will end it here and on a good note
