Haven't gotten on track yet

Monday, February 06, 2012

I have been so depressed over the last month. I have cried more in the last month than in the 12 months before that. I feel completely out of control and frustrated. I have gained back almost all the weight I'd lost last year. I tell myself to just do it, get going but that's not what I end up doing. I just keep eating. I feel completely stressed about finances and where I am in my life. Sad and hopeless. I am going to do my best to drink more water, make healthier food choices and view my life more kindly and optimistically.

    You're not alone. Sometime you just have to start small. Drinking more water is a good start. I hope today goes better for you!

    Thanks for your kind words. It really helps. So many of my friends have no idea what it feels like to be me because their lives are so different - more money and less fat. They are kind but can't really understand or relate to what I go through. The isolation makes the depression worse. Thank you for letting me know that I'm not alone in the way I feel.

    I was in the exact spot you're in and just recently started making healthy choices again. All I can say is that being in control feels SO much better than being out of control. Just take it one day at a time. You're on the right track by drinking more water. Remember this isn't a race. Small changes will become bigger ones. I find that drinking a lot of water always helps me with the cravings for sweets. Hang in there! We're all with you.

    I'm sorry you are feeling so badly. I think most of us have been where you are at right now. Please don't feel hopeless - read the numerous success stories on here and you will see how many people also thought things were hopeless and yet were able to do it and be successful.

    Focus on the all the positives. You are still making an effort! Believe me, I know your pain, I have eaten my way through many a bad spell. I hope you have a better day today.
