Can She Really Start Fresh?

My birthday comes up next month and I am feeling peculiarly depressed. Not like kick me to the curb I just wanna die depressed.

No. It's more like let's all just crawl back into the womb and start fresh kind of depressed. Grim.

Frankly, I can't even seem to locate my humor button.

When shopping didn't thrill me, I realized that there was only one thing left to do. Start a new diet. Yesterday wasn't exactly what I would call successful but it was a start. Any day that I can convince myself to eat greenery is a good day.

I don't know how much I'll write about my diet. I'll probably write more about missing my chocolate and my frappuccinos. How's that for a fun time?

I am powerless over this mini-disaster that is my life. I call it a mini-disaster because rather than a life altering conflagration, I have merely allowed the creeping crud to take over. It's due to things like sloth and not paying attention. It seems I am currently suffering from ADHD of the Soul.

I have a lot more to do besides dieting. But it's a start.

If you can, find ways to distract yourself...long walks, reading books, listening to music...whatever it is that you enjoy to get your mind off the diet and the blues.
hugs, Sango

You're depressed and are going to use dieting as a way to cheer you up? You must be way depressed, Pam!

Best of luck. Keep us posted, especially if you find that panacea I've been seeking...weight loss and body toning without dieting or exercise! ; )

*Gentle loving hug

I can't pull you out of your depression, but I do care about you. I'm happy to know you as a good friend and you are a big part of my life.

I do love your wisdom and I think you're a great lady. Please hang on.

Kisses and the cheek and hugs

Thanks Sango. I think walks are something I need to engage in more often.

LOL Cheryl! This is a typical post survey "my life is worthless" phase. It's sort of like spending the year preparing for your wedding. Except instead of a wedding, they give you a turd.

If I find that formula for shaping up without the work, I'll SELL it to you ;^)

Thanks for the support SB.

I know I am late but I have been thinking about you since reading this yesterday. I hope today is a bit better.

Well, I'm going through a "this country sucks and I want off" phase which has curtailed my funny.

Nevertheless, the cure, for me, anyway does not lie in deprivation. Chocolate and other treats are a necessity.

Yeah, I know. Health, self-image, all that diety stuff.

If I ever when on a real diet, I'd go on a gun toting, hunger induced rampage after about a day.

(((((JustMe))))) Thanks. Yes, it's getting a bit better.

LMAO at Pat. I won't be completely depriving myself. Perhaps a better phrase would be "my attempt to eat more healthy."

I knew of a Tai Chi master who said you can do 80-20 and get away with it. If you eat 80% healthy, you can eat 20% junk. That's not bad if you think about it ;^)
