Wow, lots of communication going on in the group lately!!! I love it!!! I just ate a bunch of pizza
and a little salad. Yes, I know, it should have been the other way around, if eating pizza at all!
Ugggggh!!! I just can't seem to get back on board at the moment! I got in 35 minutes on the treadmill yesterday late afternoon and plan to get at least 30 minutes later tonight (after my food digests). I am finally exercising consistently, but I just HAVE to get the food part of this equation under control again if I am going to have success. I am driving myself crazy!
to the group! I hope you will find the support you need here to help encourage you toward your goals. I am so sorry that you are experiencing depression right now, but you are making the right move by reaching out for help (with medication and by joining the group). You just don't have to go through this alone. Sorry you got lightheaded while exercising when you first started your medication. Shr1nk1ngme gave you some great suggestions for when you are ready to try the treadmill again. That is interesting that the more you exercise, the less you are tempted to overeat. So I say definitely try that treadmill again, but take it SLOW and make sure you are well hydrated and not exercising on an empty stomach. Whatever you do, DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!! You are worth every effort you put forth! YOU CAN DO THIS!!! And we will be here cheering you on!
First, let me say how sorry I am about the sexual assault you experienced.
That is just AWFUL!!! And as if that wasn't bad enough, your eHarmony guy didn't even acknowledge it..... or you?!? I don't get it!!!
Good luck going "back to the drawing board" as they say. That takes courage. You will find the right person when the time is right, I believe. eHarmony has a good track record, it seems. And, BTW, you are just fine to write as much as you want!!! So vent all you want if/when you need to!!! I am listening!
BIG HUGS to you!
Thanks for pointing out that you are in Ohio, too. Are you a Buckeye fan?
It is so good to have you back on board!
I am still so sorry about the current difficulties you are going through. YIKES! The Induction phase of Atkins again sounds scary to me!
How strict is it? You can do anything you put your mind to, though. And I definitely like the idea of giving a big LOSS on the scale to yourself as a b-day present! Do you think your adjusted dose on your med is working better for you now? Any more episodes of angina? I hope not! When do you see a specialist? I hope things start looking UP for you soon!
Glad to hear from you! I sure hope you are not allergic to little Snickers!!! Sorry you've been emotional lately. I hate the feeling of being overwhelmed, too!
Good luck with your decision about a new therapist and hypnotherapy. Trust yourself and your gut! You know yourself best!
Thanks for checking in and supporting everyone! It's always nice to hear from you.
Thanks for posting to let us know you found the thread. Sorry you are having problems with your hands again. Hope you can get some relief soon! I sure hear ya on loving food!!! That is a problem for me, too!
Glad you have the book club to look forward to. You will have to let us know how it goes.
Congrats on your first WW weigh-in! Your weight sounds GREAT to me right about now!!!
I'd take it! Just putting things in perspective....... it could definitely be worse! Good luck and let me know how you like WW!
Good to hear from you lately! Thank you for offering some great advice to thirti4thirty!
Keep up the great posts everyone!!! Each of you make this group what it is. It is so much fun to log on and read about how everyone is doing. It helps me to know that I am not alone in this battle with weight loss, especially on meds! So here's a hug for all of you!
