Made a decision ~

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier. ~ Roy E. Disney

Thanks to everyone who contacted me about my trying to make a decision about coming back to SparkPeople ~ or not. I really appreciate your concern and comments. I think a big factor in my life, lately, is changing anti-depressants. The one I'm coming off, Cymbalta, is very hard to detox from. I've been so miserable and depressed. One of the symptoms are 'brain zaps' which feel like 'electric shocks to the brain' to quote my pharmacist. It's been tough! emoticon

However, common sense has prevailed. Really ~ I do feel awful about gaining about 8 lbs back, when I had only lost 15 to start with, but what else have I got but time? It really is a no-brainer. I don't want to be fat and miserable. So, there isn't an option. I need to come back to SP and get my act together. emoticon

I am going to do this slowly. I've gone back to eating anything I want, whenever I want ~ so the first thing has to be to get off the pop. I will do that soon, while planning my future steps. THAT, in itself, will be a huge hurdle so it has to come first. Then ~ we will see ~ ~ ~ In the meantime, I will not eat my face off. emoticon (I hope!)

Thanks, again. My Spark friends have been wonderful (as usual). emoticon emoticon
