    I'm restarting as well. I was doing so well, then got hit by health issues and a prescription medication, Prednisone, that just packs on weight fast. I'm finally getting my health back on track, I'm off Prednisone after 2 years, and now I need to get the weight off.
    I'm also a stress eater, and find that going for a walk when I'm craving is both relaxing and gets me out of that "must have food" place. I also tend to get cravings at night, still looking for a good remedy for that.
    Feel free to add me. We all need the support!

    I truly understand you. I'm taking meds to for depression and I'm a big stress eater. I welcome you

    Forgot to add my mental status today..it's mixed.
    My Millennium is calling asking for money for her new car she bought period. I feel like being mean and saying I don't have anything but I did send her money. It's hard to be mean to the ones you Love.
    I need to stop picking up my phone I think that's the answer to it.
    I have an appointment with my mental health workers in April. I have to tell them I am not being compliant with my meds.
    Being bipolar makes you think you know better but I don't like taking the trinitellex.(?)
    Great commercial on TV but not a great pill for me.
    Otherwise everything else is mentally okay. Just trying to dig my way out of the rabbit hole one step at a time.
    Going to plant my seeds. Then work on the millenniums room she left. She did do much to it now up to me to pack away the stuff in there.

    Let me leave you with " knowledge is power."
    If you know what's bothering you you're one step closer to taking care of it. You've identified the cause now whatcha gonna do to make it right for U?
    Get out get some sunshine today.

    I am restarting too. Need motivation to stay on track! Will be turning 60 this October and I have struggled with my weight my whole life, it used to be that I could really get serious and lose the weight, Then I’d go up and down on the scale. Lately I’m just stuck and so hard to get the weight off as I’m getting older. Fortunately and thank God I am healthy!

    I know what you mean. I have been heavy all my life.
    I am in a roller-coaster but I know I can do it cuz I have lost weight before.
    Please look me up and add me as a friend. I very rarely get back to community.
