I do not like to blog when I am down.. I like to use my blogs as up lifting tools.. but I do not want it to get out of hand... I have lost already 5 pounds beating the plateau.. but since then I feel without energy when ever I am doing something its like pushing myself to the max to do simple stuff.. yesterday being Memorial Day did not help thought of my father.. usually I take the boys to the beach or something but my husband hurt his back so we stayed home all weekend long.. felt anxious and sad ( do not want to use the D word).. so I deep clean the whole house section by section.. that is when I know that I am going deep into the sadness ... do not feel the urge to cry but pits off I am with no one to talk about it becuase I do not want to worry my husband I turned to blog.. I will shake it off ..I will get back into the swing of things... this will not damper what I have accomplished so far.. I just need a friend's input to see me thru... a pick me up...
it is hard for me to ask for help .. since I always am the helper ... well with that said now I must get back inot the swing of my day!!!! have a great one....

    I hope that you are feeling better today. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate. I would consider talking to your husband. You might be surprised. I know that I don't want to burden mine too, and I sure don't want him to think that I am crazy. But--he knows you better than anyone else. And he might just surprise you by being able to give you the in person hug, and should to lean on that it sounds like you need. Give it a shot. What do you have to lose.

    You did the right thing - I still rant on some of my blogs - good for you to release , let it go - instead of old habits of eating perhaps . I am sorry that you are going through a rough period . Its tough to grieve and not be able to share. Congrats on your weight loss - that 's great - Energy - curious, do you track your nutrients ?? I know it hard when you have a lot going on but sometimes we need to listen to our bodies when we are tired - appears that some kind of a uplifting mineral is missing - You would be surprised , zinc , magnesium , calcium , iron , vitamin C , who knows everyone is different . Maybe your not eating enough for the all that you do in a day?? These were issues that I to had to figure out one by one - Here if you need to talk - Cheer up - Hugs Karen- Hope your DH is feeling better emoticon

    it is great that you blog a lot of people here care . I feel low a lot , some days I wish I could go to bed right after work. what helps for me is to exercise , make sure I eat fish once a week. listening to music while I walk outside and feel the sun on my face. and if I am crying I get a book and start reading and it distracts me. I know most of my sadness is hormonal and it will pass. but it is good to blog about it and others help you to feel better. hugs

    Is this an anniversary for your Dad's death? This time of year is the anniversary of my sister's death, and it hits me hard - I have sadness or irritability, etc.

    I know exercising helps my endorphins, and the great thing about sparkpeople is that there ARE so many people who are happy to help when you need it.

    I hope today is a sunnier day, but if you get sucked into sadness for days on end, you may want to check in about depression.

    I think Memorial Day weekend can be hard for many people - remembering loved ones, the pressure to "have fun" on the "first weekend of summer", going to cemeteries, etc., etc.

    Sending you hugs emoticon

    Depending on what you're sad about -- it's usually WAY not one thing, there are usually groups you can get to for support. Even if you don't share, you can attend and feel that support!

    I go to Al-Anon (terrible name, can't tell it means support for loved ones of addicts or alcoholics). There's AA if you are the addict (recovering or active), OA (over-eaters) and a bazillion others.

    The problem for ME is the nearest meeting for loved ones (my situation) is almost 90 mile round trip. I can't make it as often as I like but I always GET SOMETHING from it, even if I just sit there.

    My point is: there is help out there. You may have to squeeze / stretch yourself to get there but get there! It'll help

    Hope today is better for you as you look back on all you accomplished in cleaning your house. You did great in not letting your sadness get you down instead you got busy and moved forward. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hope you feel better. Sadness can hit you ..but you did a great job of dealing with it by cleaning. Do something nice for yourself today. You deserve it.

    I'm so sorry you're down. Sometimes that dark pit just looms up in front of us and finding a way to acknowledge and even own our sad side without becoming trapped in it is probably a bigger challenge than breaking out of a plateau.

    Just don't give up. If other people have made it to goal you will to. Not a single one of them is any better, smarter, luckier than you. It's just their turn now. Yours is coming.

    Hugs to you.

    You wrote my words!
    My month went just fine as I focused on a 5K walk for my 72nd birthday. Did that and all was well. Wrote lots on here about that!
    Then came the let down. Traveled for 4 days, ate out most meals and got almost no exercise. Got on the scales yesterday and surprise surprise, a 3 pound gain. Don't want to admit to that on here! Yesterday was a wipe out for me with no energy to do anything. Reading your blog made me realize that to stay down is not an option! I used to give myself 3 days to wallow in self-pity but in this case I think one will just have to do.
    Let's just both pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over today!
