I ate horribly today. We had pizza for lunch at a birthday party and we ate out for dinner. I also couldn't resist eating a few pieces of chocolate when I was putting together Easter baskets for my kids. I'm glad I decided to stay off the scale for a few days because today's result would not be friendly to my goals.

It rained again today, so I exercised inside. I'm glad I got a bit of activity in, but it wasn't enough to offset my eating today.

I had a coffee around noon but without my usual cereal. By 2:00 when I got to my mom's for Easter dinner, my blood sugar tanked. Then dinner was over an hour late. I ate a modest meal and no 2nd helpings. Now I still feel blah. No exercise today because of the blah feeling. But bipolarwise I'm fine. No anxiety, depression, hypo/mania, hallucinations or delusions. I will not fight against these psych meds anymore. They are slowly killing me and nobody cares except my liver doctor. I have 4 months until I see him again and I'll be damned if I'm going to sit around waiting to die a premature death any longer. That's it. Diet and exercise is the way to true happiness.

Dinner could have been higher cal. Ham is always a reasonable holiday option. My only major splurges were a thin slice of the bi*chen cake I made (wonderful!) and two small chocolate covered peanut butter Easter eggs my sister made from scratch. Hey, it was a holiday and my dad's b-day. No major guilt.

I overate today. I had too much chocolate and sweets. I told myself I wouldnít care because itís Easter but I saw myself in my gandmaís full length mirror and I look awful. All my weight is in my stomach and I look pregnant. Itís horrible. Doubling down on diet efforts tomorrow. Iím going to make sure I walk too. I NEED to lose 20lbs. At least! Technically I need to lose 80lbs to be back in a ďnormalĒ weight range but thatís too much to even think about. Thatís why my first goal is to get back to the weight I was in February before my back gave out. Iím hoping getting back to work will also help me because I will be more active.

Just home from vacation where I didnít watch a single calorie , I gained some but I know if will fall back off since it did when I dumped Latuda.

The food in Savannah was so amazing I didnít say no at all.

I do need to increase my exercise. Itís just hard knowing that each mile I go is probably causing my PsA arthritis to get worse, but the health benefits of losing this psych Med induced weight far out weights my possibly making PsA worse or at least I say that today.

Not doing well. Trauma seems to have locked up my stomach bad. I was in so much pain I saw an emergency GP last night. He gave me laxatives but no luck so far. At least the nausea tablets work. Supposed to go to my normal GP tomorrow but doubt she can do anything. So tired of seeing doctors I doubt I will go.

I have done ok today. I have eaten exactly the amount of calories I am allowed. Unfortunately it is only six pm and I will undoubtedly be hungry later. So I will go over but I will try to keep it minimal. Maybe just a yogurt. I just got caught by all the damn candy in the house. Stupid Easter. I have to hide it or something. Put it on top of the fridge where it wonít be seen. I canít throw it out because itís my sonís, which you would think would keep
Me from eating it lol but no.

I did go on a three quarter mile walk today. My Achillesí tendon hurt by the end and my feet were burning and tingling so I may have pushed myself too far. I have physical therapy tomorrow for the first time. I donít want to go. I hate PT. I did it all last summer for my back and it sucked. I just hate boring exercise. But it must be done.

I ate well today. I also stayed pretty active and went for a walk. I'm feeling much more energetic during the day now that I'm taking my Geodon at night. Also, the Risperdal I was taking can cause weight gain. I'm completely off it now, so I hope that helps the scale begin to go in the right direction.

I ate some sugar on Easter, but I've been back to minimal sugar for the past two days. The cravings are so much better when I just stay away from it as much as possible. It is like a downward spiral once I start.
