Good Morning Chickadees!
I thought maybe today everybody could just sign in and say hi so that we at least know that everyone is alive and well. I think sometimes that because this is the "Depression and Weight Issues" thread, that sometimes we are down and think we don't have much to say or share, but as you can tell from those that are posting, we are all interested in everybody and what everyone is up to, or at least would feel better just seeing a quick "hello, don't know a thing" so that we know you are still kicking! :-)
I am not doing a thing that is interesting really, just busy at work and busy at home, and busy getting reading for my oldest son's graduation which is a huge blessing for us to be looking forward to and I'm glad for everylittle thing that I am doing to prepare for his graduation! :-)
Did anybody see Dateline last night, with the group that is going to their 25th class reunion and trying to lose weight. Each one is doing it differently, atkins, weightwatchers, slimfast, exercise, weights, etc. and it was very interesting. The one that interested me most was the lady that is training to run a 26 mile marathon and was eating 1300 calories a day but not losing weight bec she was not eating enough. I immediatley knew that was the problem, that SHE was not eating enough - and yet I try to keep my calories between 1200 to 1400 a day and as you know I never lose weight either. Cin sweetly reminded me of that just last week that I am not eating enough and slowing down my metabolism. I know that is true for everybody else, but over the years I have learned that I just cannot eat much or I will gain - who knows maybe I am sabatoging myself by keeping my calories low??? anyway I thought it was an interesting segment.
soooooooo what's everybody else to?
hope everybody checks in with a quick hello!
Have a blessed day!
