Hello ladies. Thanks fior the replies. Well, I tried the goofy grapefruit diet. I lasted until about 7pm. It was just way too restricted, and I was still hungry. Of course, my husband sabatoged it, also. He came home with candy bars!! He told me to start"tomorrow". Then he told me that I just need to worry about my health, and that it is the medicine making me gain. Well, I guess that I am just not ready, yet. However, I just do not like what I see in the mirror. I have never seen my face so big!! I guess that I will try a mini-makeover. A new hairstyle and put on some make-up. Perhaps, then I will feel better about myself. Then, I also, have to go out and buy some clothes to fit. yikes.. But, anyways ladies, thanks for support. I need to get out of this funk. There are people who have major problems, and I am thankful that I am able to just to take care of myself. e.g. my own hygeine. I had an aunt with MS, who could not even scratch her own face for years. She became paralyzed from the neck down. So, when I start the pity party, I remind myself that things could be so much more. Being on this computer is somewhat therapeutic for me. Eventually, I have to believe that I will be ready to do what I need to lose weight. Have a nice day, everyone!
