I gained about 40 pounds on zyprexa. I hate my body. Last time I weighed myself I was down 12 pounds but I was so depressed all I was eating was smoothies so that I could have enough calories for my geodon. Iíve probably gained some of that 12 back. Iíve been horrible with exercise with this depression and my hypomania doesnít last too long so I donít get enough in during those phases. I ordered takeout for dinner tonight because I was just too tired to cook anything. I wish I had more self control and was better at this.

I relate to wanting to have self control and being too tired to cook. I only cooked tonight because I got one of those meal box subscriptions and I donít want to waste my $30. I wanted to just order a pizza and call it a night,

Iím a little depressed today so I just want to comfort eat but I ate all the chips and stuff like that and didnít buy more while at the grocery store today so Iím trying to be better.
You did really great today. You should be proud. It is so hard to say no when your brain says yes. The grocery store gets me into trouble. I buy too much junk and tell myself it is for treats for the kids. I give them the treats and I take one too.

I had another good food day today. Healthy meals and no desserts. I went for a walk for exercise. I wanted to do more, but the day just got too busy. I also wanted to drink more but I feel super bloated today. I might float away if I drink more.

Sometimes ordering takeout is all you can do. Sometimes it is all you want to do. We have an activity every Monday evening and we get takeout a lot afterward. I made myself make dinner before we left so that we would have a healthy meal to come home to. I need to plan better and do it more often. We like to go to a burger place with really spectacular custard desserts and my pants will not allow any more visits there for a while.

So I also am cutting out refined sugar. I do still eat fruit. I have added more lean protein and veggies. I walk or ride my bike. Trouble is, the weather hasn't been cooperative. Either too cold or raining- or both. I also am going off seroquel again. I have fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. I see my liver dr in August. I have four months to reverse this and lose weight. Right now Im at 179. I want to lose 60 pounds. (I'm only 5' 2") All thanks to Zyprexa and Depakote. Depakote made me gain the weight, zyprexa maintained it and raised my liver ensimes and gave me fatty liver. Its time to END this cycle!

Today was harder than yesterday with three meals and three snacks. But the snacks were all good. I was a bit disappointed to not last thru the evening without a snack but i guess it is just too hard for me. At least it was popcorn i cooked myself so it was homemade, healthy and didn't cost anything. Dieting is sure good for my wallet. I didn't spend anything today. I was getting delivery to the tune of $25 a day before and it was really adding up.


I'm happy to be dieting. I don't know why i was so resistant. It's an effort, but i know it'll be worth it. I've realized that being thin is important to *ME*. It's something *I* value. It's not just something a doctor or therapist said. It's my own goal for myself!

I have been ordering the meal box subscriptions, too. My objective in ordering them was to push myself to cook healthier foods (I try to only order the healthy ones), to add a little fun to the cooking task, and to lessen the stress of shopping as much. Too often I'll go to make something only to find I don't have a key ingredient. Or I need to defrost something. In those cases, I sometimes give up. At least the meal kits help me with this. However, we can't afford them full price. I'm on my third service that offers introductory discounts.

I have been a little better with my eating these past four days, but better, not weight loss good. I've tried to be a little more physically active, but only one day this past week would officially count as exercise.

Bird dancer, I have the cheapest one available and it will still be too expensive if I continue with it. Right now itís inky $40 a week. I figure once I get back in the swing of cooking Iíll cancel it and go shopping and meal plan again.
