  • Yep, mine came good late last night, so I'm happy camper again. :-)
  • Geez, wish I'd checked here before I faffed around with all the settings. My day looks appalling without the exercise...hope it gets sorted quickly!
  • Thanks Michable. Getting there. :-)
  • Hi all - Well, wasn't here last week as had a serious psychological meltdown on the previous weekend. Went back to my family for nearly the whole week, which was good for me. I didn't bother about food or exercise as I was focusing on my head. It was for the best. Weighed in the same this last Monday, so that was…

  • Not a great week for me, either - started with TTOTM and the first day was fine, and then it all went badly the second day. Third day was fine, but then my diabetes started going stupid with low blood sugars multiple times in one night, which wrote me off for the next day...and then the heat just about levelled me. I've…
  • I thought she looked very thin, but I'm in Australia and haven't watched the show, so I'm going on photos. Just wanted to say that a few years back here, a guy won and basically the response was akin to those faces on Bob and Jillian. People were aghast. This is him here:…
  • Gawd, the hormones have well and truly made me their b!tch today! Suffice to say...well, tomorrow is a new day. Right? I'm still going to exercise and hope to at least undo some of the damage and just keep it to one day. During my previous lifestyle, I used to just go stupid for the entirety of TTOTM. Not anymore! Onwards…
  • Sorry I too wasn't here much...had a job application to get in and did so last night, so fingers crossed. Have put on weight and am sad...but am hoping it's due to TTOTM, which has just kicked in. I probably feel sad because of that, too (and the usual depression, of course). Anyway, we shall battle on. Hope you're all…

  • I don't believe we're being closed-minded at all. Most of us are speaking from our own experiences. Most of those experiences demonstrate that if you're in the throes of depression, you CAN'T think positive. You just can't. I know if you haven't experienced it yourself, it probably appears to be something that's an easy…
  • I love that post...it really DOES hit the nail on the head brilliantly. Between that and the Black Dog video, it pretty much covers my experience and that of many members of my family, too. (Diabetes and depression - it's a family affair. ;-))
  • I'm glad you were able to find out more about this...I think what you said was very worthwhile - it's just not quite as straightforward as that for most people, much to our chagrin! :-)
  • Just quoting myself to put it in context - I actually spent YEARS playing at being "Little Miss Sunshine", so people wouldn't see how I really felt. I was bullied as a child and as a teenager (and just recently in my now former workplace - can't take a trick! :-P), so I created a persona to hide my distress, depression and…
  • I really wish it was just a choice for me to have depression! If I could so easily say, "Okay, no more depression! I'm done!", I most certainly would. ;-) Depression does, actually, often develop on its own. It may have precursors, but in most cases, I think you'll find the brain chemistry is out of whack - and that's from…
  • Just sussing out my weights workout and thought I might find a video of it (don't think there is, though)...but I found this video and I really like this lady - she's very cool! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahPQwxs1iTc&list=SPAC49C3675A67B04C

  • Oh Candi, I'm so terribly sorry. :-( Thinking of all your family - huge hugs. xo ♥ Em.
  • Hi all! First off - Skim, I sometimes feel I wrote the book on emotional eating, let me tell you! It is just so damned easy to feel like cr@p (testing the censor there! ;-)) and just resort to food. I've gone out at stupid hours of the night solely to buy a whole stack of rubbish food to gorge. So, yeah, I get it and I…
  • Ignore this...I didn't realise you could edit, then I couldn't delete the new one! I have the dumb. :-P
  • Skim and michable, I've been seeing a psychiatrist for nearly a decade now - what with all the Troubles, though, I've doubled-down and am seeing a psychologist as well. Add to that the anti-depressants (which have increased over the last few years), etc, etc...I got it all going on. Joy! :-P Thanks, Terri - I actually…
  • Ooh, I got censored! LOL! That's nothing compared to some of the stuff I've been known to come out with. ;-) And yay Helga and Claude/tte! That's a great sign! :-D
  • Day 2 pretty good for me. My bloated tum has come good, thank GOD, so that's nice. It was actually quite painful. :-P Had appointment with psychologist today and cried for a goodly part of it. Cathartic, perhaps? I do tire of it, though. Jumped on the exercise bike here for half an hour and watched the Djokovic/Wawrinka…
  • So stupid - I should've taken pictures that showed my midriff. I have done now. My middle Before pics 210114 by Emma Bruty, on Flickr Something I have to contend with is that I've got a fair amount of scar tissue in my belly, thanks to 20-odd years of insulin injections. Thus, I'll probably never have a totally flat…
  • Okay, back to add the stuff.
  • I'm sitting here watching The Biggest Loser and crying like a baby. I think they're all so amazing and so brave...I know not everyone's a fan of the show, but to even CONSIDER undertaking something like this is just incredible. I just look at them all and I remember how I felt 25 kilos heavier and that they can even…
