I am trying to get my weight under control in a healthy way. Right now I do not eat right. I have just one meal a day because usually I'm not hungry until evening (dinner time). I know this is not healthy for me but I can't seem to eat during the day. I try to drink the water, but never make it pass 4 cups a day. This really fills me up in no time.

I have Lupus and depression. Wondering if the Lupus and the meds keeps me from eating. I think my depression comes along with the Lupus, because there are some days I'm in so much pain, and eating is the last thing on my mind.

I need to learn how to do better. Hopefully the Lupus will let up long enough for me to get some type of control in my life, then go from there with the depression. Will keep you posted on how I'm doing with this.

    I was looking at your sparkpage and you are doing really good. You do need to try to spread the food out. Have you ever tried a smoothie or protein drink for breakfast?? That way you would have something in your body. On the water, have you tried the Crystal Light packets?? They give your water some flavor. I generally use one pack in about 10 bottles of water. You may want to use more. But it could help you drink your water. I wish you all the best. Take care.

    Best of luck and keep trying to spread your food out. I personally love to starve all day long and then eat lots after the sun goes down. Maybe if you try lots of really small, healthy snacks instead of 3 meals a day it would be easier. I can't eat breakfast and I get so mad at myself because it is the most important meal of the day -- and one that does help people lose weight. So do try to find some small, healthy things. It is just an idea. I'm sure all your health factors do play into how you feel about eating, but think of how much better you will feel when you get some weight off. Work hard on trying to eat right and the best of luck to you.
