Hi Good Morning,

I am new here and was encouraged to come to the daily thread. I guess this is it!

My information is posted on the bio thread and I don't want to bore you again with it here.

In a nutshell, I have gained a significant amount of weight due to four months of taking Lithium...for possibly bipolar depression. Previous to the Lithium, I was thin and very athletic. I went from 115 lbs to 160 lbs (maybe heavier) in just four months.
I quit the Lithium four months ago and 8 of those pounds have slipped off by themselves without me working on them.

I don't ever expect to be 115 lbs again, but I'd like to reach 130 lbs...that would be nice. I just feel kinda overwhelmed by everything...and very sad. Mad at myself, I think...for getting big.

I KNOW what I'm supposed to do to lose the weight, b/c I was thin before. It just seems so overwhelming and frighteing. Why is excercise so scary to me suddenly? Anyone ever feel this way starting out?

Thanks for letting me banter.
I hope everyone has a healthy and wonderful day,
Jaden

Hi Jaden,

How nice of you to join this wonderful little group of ninnies, we do love each other though lol.

Yes I do feel overwhelmed and scared during my journey, I think it is quite normal. I think change in any shape or form is kinda scary, but ohhh the end results are glorious and well worth it.

I'm so sorry you've gained so much weight on the meds but don't be mad at yourself, it happened and today is a new day the Lord has given us to start all over. Instead of being mad, be happy that you are taking control and your gonna beat this

I'm going to go and read your bio, I'm real glad you joined in and I hope you can get silly with us too, it just makes the day that much easier if we can smile

Hugs to you !!!

Good Morning Chickadees!

April, hope you got some sleep. Congrats on the good food days!

Leenie, some stew with potatoes sure sounds good. You body must be hungry if you wake up during the night hungry? I agree, we just seem to want/need to eat more when it gets colder. It's been 50 in the mornings here so it has been wonderful! I love soups this time of the year.

Jaden, it's nice to meet you! may I ask... do you notice any difference in your moods since quiting the lithium. I'm sorry for the weight gain on the meds, that seems to be an awful side effect of some of the meds for chemical imbalances. I agree with Leenie, she is a wise lady - I'm also glad you are taking control.

Cin? how ya feeling today? still doing the "pledge of allegiance" stance?

Tippy? how is your leg doing? how ya feeling today?

Kemp? your banquets tonite right? you running around like a chicken with your head cut off? try to stay calm and have fun!

Liz? you off today?

I'm finally feeling better today. My tummy is just sore, but I must be feeling better bec I'm hungry again, but I'm eating light - don't want anything upsetting my stomach.

I'm going to feed my grandmother at noon. Yesterday was her 87th birthday. My dear hubby is leaving to go camping for a few days. Youngest son will go meet him tomorrow and oldest son hasn't decided if he can fit it into his schedule or not. I would be glad for them to all go and let me have the house to myself.... but whatever.

I hope everybody has a blessed day!

hugs,
Cathy

Well I am off pretty soon.DH has a appointment for his first hearing aid this afternoon.I get the feeling he is really down about it.I have been going through some things the past day or two so this is why I haven't really been on or talkative.

I've been in such a rotten mood that I haven't wanted to post anywhere! This past month has truly been the pits. A month ago I sat in the hospital with heart problems and now I have this leg problem. Which is getting better, by the way! I can't wear a shoe on that foot so walking is incomfortable and so is standing. This is really getting old fast!

Tomorrow I have to go in the city for a Heart Institute for a stress test. The darn thing lasts 4-5 hours! Oy vey!

There..........I vented! Now,I'm going to waddle over and fold some laundry!

(P.S. I make a lousy sick person!)

Tippy, I am so sorry it's been a rough month! wish I could make it better! I really do! I am praying for ya! promise! rotten mood or not we want you to post whenever you can. sometimes it helps to vent! but we always want to hear from ya.


Cin, I'm sorry you're in so much pain! Maybe you will be able to catch a nap since you didn't get to sleep much last nite. Did they send you home with pain pills? I know you probably don't like taking them but they might help the first day or two? I hope the pain passes quickly! Do you have anything that you will be reading while you are resting from surgery? You know you are in my prayers!

hugs,
Cathy

Well the appointment went well.

I aint really been feeling myself lately. I have been feeling really down in the dumps and stressed.I started having flashbacks the other night about another abuser I was unsure of.But it was confirmed.I have been having a hard time with sleeping and relaxing.I feel so tired and I am really not liking this cold weather.We had some snow this morning and I think they said on the news we maybe getting more. Its supposed to be fall not winter yet.

Well I hope everyone is doing well.


*hugs*
