You seem to have so much to be thankful for. Sometimes we focus on what is so wrong with us, we forget about everything that we have. When I get like this, I make myself write up a gratitude list. It amazes me to think about all the things I take for granted. I know weight is important because it is to me too, but life is full of love and right now am have been totally depressed and I have to find time to make myself feel better. I also like helping others feel better. I helps me. I may lose my job. I just had a guy hit my car from behind today and my back hurts and I could go on and on. But you know what, I won't. I think that things will work themselves out and I will be okay. I have to have faith. Hang in there Stacy. The weight will come off eventually.
my weight loss has been so slow, I do appreciate it though don't get me wrong. I could never have lost an ounce without topamax I know that. But I only lose 5 pounds a month at the most. That gets very depressing seeing as I need to lose another 100 pounds. I have only lost about 45 or maybe 40 pounds pounds since last august. At that speed it will be years before I will ever get my figure back. I am insulin resistant also and bipolar. Great combination. some days my depression is so great I could cry all day if I gave in, but thank god I have a job and kids and a wonderful boyfriend that absolutely saves me. Otherwise who knows where I would be?! Well thank you for listening!
