Well it was more of the same old thing this week and no good excuses. Granted, I have family stuff going on that is just dragging me down and whatnot, I shouldn't use their problems as an excuse for me not doing what I need to do for me. So I don't know. Feeling really down today. I've had a rough week and it hasn't gotten better. And it didn't help that the nurse practitioner that I met on Monday cuz my usual doctor quit to work somewhere else made me get on a scale. Tell me who gets on a scale in a psychiatrist's office? And then proceeded to call me fat and warn me yet again about diabetes and other things that I know about. I'm telling you that I'm not going back. I'm not spending money to go in just to be called fat and made fun of and not get the treatment I need. I'm going to wean myself off the meds. I think they are part of why I'm constantly tired and not wanting to do anything. Granted, I've always been bad, but lately I've been worse. Why spend the money on something I don't want to be on that's not helping and I have no doc who cares enough to help and just wants to make fun of how I look. And in case you were wondering, yes she's the skinny looks down her nose at you type. Anyway, that's enough of my griping. To sum the week up, I stayed in my nutrition ranges zero times this last week, I only worked out twice which is better than nothing, I know, and I'm up a pound for the week. Not bad considering my choices, but I'm hoping that somehow I'll get back in control of myself and get back to being on track for my goals. Happy sparking, friends.

    It's amazing how closely connected emotions can be with sticking to a bealthy lifestyle. When emotions are strong, it is doubly hard to stick to a diet and do workouts. Good for you getting in two workouts! Do you mind my asking about the meds you are taking? I ask because i recently weaned myself off of effexor.

    Next week, you're going to do better!

    Best of luck with trying to wean yourself off your meds. I've managed to do somewhat okay without mine this last year that I couldn't afford them but, I still have the lethargy and tiredness I had while on them. :-/

    Oh, my!! HUGS to you for not slapping that thin person!!

    Even though you did not stay in nutrition range at all this week, I imagine that you were not far off, at least in one or more areas.

    Stay strong. Keep telling your narrative.

    I hope you find a better doctor, VERY SOON!

    *hugs* I'm sorry you had such a poor experience at the doctors. Please be VERY careful about stopping treatment and weaning off of your medication. Maybe instead find another doctor? You need to take care of yourself, and one way you can do that is by seeing the professionals you need to in order to stay mentally acute. Find someone who is going to be a bit more understanding and listen to you.It's not normal to feel so lethargic, so either there needs to be a change in your meds, or they need to hook you up with a dietitian or a support group or something.

    Remember girl, you are in control of your eating. Drama does not control what goes in your mouth- you do.YOU can make the changes you need to in order to get healthy. *hugs*
