I don't understand it. I'm eating almost nothing.
That was the only upside to being sick.

Not until today. :)
Maybe it has to do with drinking or not drinking enough, or just stabilizing an unusually low reading.
If I ever get over whatever it is I have, I'm planning to start walking my dog. Maybe that will jump start my metabolism. Of course, I'll also eat more.
It really is harder to lose weight as you get older. :(

Dinah, you are doing good on your weight. Oh and Happy Birthday--I'm still catching up. I would Babble mail you but you don't have it turned on. Hope everything is okay.

Thanks Midnight Blue.
It's turned on now, and I'd love to hear from you and hear how everything's going for you.
I haven't weighed myself for a while, because there are certain times of the month that I just refuse to weigh myself.
Plus I've gone back on Risperdal and I'm afraid of its effects on my weight. I can't see going off it until after the holiday season.
I'm a tad discouraged about my mouth. I thought this latest ENT had the answer for me, but I'm taking my antibiotics and drinking enough water to float a ship, and still having trouble. Fever's down but not gone, and altogether I'm ready to believe I'll live with this forever.

Tried to Babble mail you a few days ago. Not sure if you got it. It doesn't matter. Hope you are feeling better. I'm okay just tired and eating my way through all the best desserts of Christmas. I'll get back on track with you after the first of the year as far as weighing in and counting calories goes.

Less than two weeks.
Christmas is over, but I still am having the urges to eat myself beyond fullness into feeling sick. I'm compulsively eating everything I see.
I'm stopping Risperdal today, I'm hoping that will make a difference.
On the other hand, I'm also compulsively shopping, buying things I don't even want. So maybe I'm just trying to escape.

I can't quit eating. Hungry, tired, stressed. Lots of reasons for all those things, but the end result is that I'm stuffing my face. NOT SAYING what I weigh but clothes are REALLY tight!

I'm sorry. :(
That's kind of what's happening with me too, and I haven't even dared get on the scales.
Hang on, things will get better (or at least they generally do eventually).
I'm sorry about the stress. I'm available if you could use an ear or a shoulder.

and wake up months from now, thinner.
It seems impossible to diet and work and try to live a life all at the same time.

it is hard to keep with this Dinah but ever so important as you're needed by your son and husband. your life can be better, happier, more positive....it will take time and it isn't easy as you well know.
three months to make something a habit? isn't that the time frame? instead of setting the bar too high and seeing the bigger picture falling off the wall and crushing you why not stay focused on the present and do what you can each day and release yourself from yesterday and save yourself the worry of the future.
try to baby step day by day. you've been able to do a lot of things in your life that you never thought you could. this is merely another challenge that will take daily dedication and lots of patience and forgiveness.
keep at this Dinah. you *can* make these changes.

Right now I think I'm too focused on making it through the next hour (not even the next day) in a productive way to ever even think about long term consequences. My clothes are getting pretty tight. :(
Unfortunately, for all the bad long term consequences, food works.

how are you doing with regards to eating and exercise now Dinah? have the feelings of surviving the immediate passed? perhaps now you can look again at small steps to take that could help regulate blood pressure and blood sugars, things to help with weight mgmt, etc.
hoping you're able to be around for a long time so that your son has a healthy mother as a role model for all the needs of a growing child: healthy exercise habits, healthy attitudes towards both eating and exercise, learning proper fuel to keep his energy levels up, repetition of the message of you are what you eat in whatever way best suits your family ethos.
saw the archive diving over on psycho. and thought that this might be good to revisit as it helps to see where you've been and where you're wanting to go.
best wishes always Dinah

Should we think about trying this weight thing again?

OOh, I'd love to. But right now I'm having so much trouble staying awake and alert. I'm not sure I can even remember what I put in my mouth.
Typical for me to swing down into this for a while. I have an appt next week, or maybe the week after, with my new sleep doctor. Maybe he can help.
But it'd probably do me good to try. You'll just have to nag a bit. Good news is I don't think I've gained anything from my highest weight. Bad news is that I think I'm back at my highest weight.
I'll try to get a good weight on myself to see.
Really bad news is I'm over a week late. I'm *positive* I can't be pregnant. And I remember that work stress has occasionally caused this in the past. But I have no idea where that puts me in the water retention cycle. My breasts don't hurt, so that would mean not a lot of water. But my shoes are too tight, so that would mean a lot of water. Argh.

Hi Zen. I'm in the somnolent phase of my mood cycle, and I'm not sure I have the energy to pay attention to what I'm eating. But I've promised Midnight I'll try.
I'd like my son to have me around for a while, so it would help to watch my diabetes and my weight. Right now I'm just an object lesson to him that way.
Thanks for caring.

I'm not in a great "place" either so let's think of ONE good thing we can do this coming week starting Monday, OKAY?
I'm not at my all time high but I'm way over my low of just a couple years ago. Sigh.....
Maybe we should just add water? I see you think you have a stone and it sure couldn't hurt for you to drink a little bit more water. Or for me to drink less cream soda. :-)

mmmmm Cream soday. mmmmmmm
Ok, but can I make mine Propel? It's almost like water but with a bit of flavor to cover that whole watery taste.
Sounds too easy though. I've been unbelievably thirsty lately. :)
And I took a test to make sure I'm not pregnant even though I knew I wasn't. And I'm not, so I am relieved about that.
On the other hand, I seem stuck in endless PMS, constantly tearful and having the most horrid thoughts.

This was NOT a good day. If it was a not great for you food I ate it! And NO water not even one sip. Ice tea (without sugar) was the best I managed.
Can we start this coming Monday? I need to get good for you food in the house. Yeah I'll let you off on the water thing if I can count unsweetened tea. :-)

I'm fine with that. :)
Actually, the last nutritionist I saw, when seeing my face on being told how much water I should drink, listed a variety of alternatives which did not include Diet Coke. :)
I weighed myself this morning, and I'm under two hundred. Not by a lot, but by some. Unfortunately, I think I've got almost no water retention right now, so if I go back to normal I might tip a bit over.
At least it's not the heaviest I've ever been.
I'm trying to figure out if feeling a bit unwell is helping or hurting. I don't feel the desire to eat as much, but when I do eat, it's nothing but bread and potatoes and other high calorie things that are soothing to the tummy.

My size 18 clothes are feeling too tight, although size 20's are still too big. But if I'm between sizes right now, I'm sure not going to go up one and have to buy a whole new wardrobe.
Plus since my attitude towards work has entirely changed for the positive, I find I'm still having trouble doing it. I have to suspect that my poor physical condition is affecting this. I'm exhausted just leaning over nowadays.
I'm not eating more. I'm probably consuming fewer calories since I've almost totally cut out sugar filled drinks, and since my tastes have changed so that things that used to taste good now taste too rich or too sweet. So I have to conclude that my weight gain is due to some metabolism shift that goes with age fortyfive.
I hate the idea of dieting. I get so crabby and it's so hard to concentrate.
But this just can't continue.

This is not going well.
I know I need to exercise, but it's so darn hot.
At least I'm not eating much. The foods that are bad for me have started to treat me badly more immediately, which is both good and bad I guess.
