Got a message on my phone last night that my JCC isnt going to be there anymore. That really doesnt help things for me. I am going to vent about myself.. I went on a small trip to see my kids this past week and things did not go well. I did good the first day but after that I blew it. I did not go wild and eat really bad things but I went off the plan. Seemed no one had a schedule for eating. I guess I am used to eating at a certain time. It was too long between meals and that wasnt good at all. I gained of course. But I am back at what I  was now.since i have been home. Also meeting up with "the ex" did not help things. He seemed to think we could get back together like a divorce never happened. NO WAY..

Also being off work for a while has affected me. I havent been anywhere much and now I am seriously depressed.. Please say a prayer for me whoever reads this..

I love reading your posts. :mellow:

awe cheer up!   its a new day, a new start to anything you wanna do or anything you wanna be.   Maybe get outside and take a walk and enjoy the fresh air and stop and notice the little things.  I love walking because i get to see so much more than when i'm driving and it gets my mind off other things at least for a little while.

And dont forget when you go on trips, or are with other people,,, dont let them dictate when and what you eat. If you are on a schedule, stick to that schedule and tell them when you are gonna eat .   Nothing wrong with saying "its time for me to have my lunch" or snack or whatever .    Its your body, your life, take control.

When you look in the mirror and see no change, and still keep faith, knowing that in time you will get there if you stay focused and on track, that's the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.

Sending hugs and prayers to you.  During those times it's easy to over eat and turn to food.  Keep strong, you will work through this.

Don't beat yourself up...it takes time to learn new habits and so chalk that time up to a learning experience.  We all falter sometimes even those that have been on the plan for years (as I sit here almost raising my hand as one of those people).  I'll pray for you to have strength however know you'll get stronger with each new day and also be proud that you did have some control cause like you said you didn't go wild which that shows you are changing.  Congrats for getting right back on the plan too!

Pamela,

 

My heart goes out to you. I have a history of depression and I am currently trying to emerge from a dark hole that I have been lying dormant in for 2 months. When I am depressed it is so easy for me to give up and just for spite punish myself too by overeating.

 

There are at least 2 things about you that have inspired me: One - your courage — you asked for help! And two - your self-love —  even though you had a stressful week and went off program, you immediately engaged in your JC program when you returned home. KUDOS GIRL!!! Way to take care of yourself!

 

My offering is to keep doing what you are doing: make courageous choices from self love.

 

What I find inspiring and uplifting is to walk in nature. I am an animal freak and get exhilarated at a deer siting, or the sound of a wood pecker (I can never visually see the son of the guns :>).
