Feeling Better, and Reviews

Yesterday was a *really* tough day for me. It seemed like all the things that I have struggled with... sinus infection, seasonal affective disorder, foot pain, headaches, stress, and weight... peaked together at the same time and it felt so overwhelming. I felt like I would never get out of this spot, where I am exhausted and hurting and fat. But last night after a day of moping around, I got my act together and started focusing again on what I CAN do to change this. I sorted out the things I need to do and am working on doing them.

Tomorrow I am seeing a new physical therapist who will begin ASTYM therapy with me for my plantar fasciitis. I will be doing that twice a week while trying to sleep with the splints on my feet at night. I have some product reviews half written that I've been trying to finish up; I posted one this weekend on my review site for Uve Gourmet Weight Loss drinks and am working on the 2-day detox/cleanse program I was sent to review a couple months ago. That's the one I wanted to complete before starting Medifast a week ago, but I didn't feel well enough so I am doing it now. I'll be back on Medifast on Wednesday and now that I am off my antibiotics I won't need to add yogurt to the plan anymore and can stick to it 100%. In the meantime, I am trying to balance staying off my hurting feet with getting my house cleaned today. I am taking frequent breaks to sit and rest. I feel better today than I have in weeks and feel more hopeful, too, which is a very good thing.

Scale this morning still said 220.

Digging yourself out of a deep dark hole like you described is one of the hardest things to do. Congratulations on doing it! You are exactly right. All you can do is look at each problem and see how you can improve the situation and get going on it. Sometimes we are all overwhelmed, and I am frequently that way. Your post offered encouragement for all of us for facing our problems and doing what we can. Thanks!

I'm glad you are feeling better. I don't know how you keep going sometimes.

Sometimes the only thing we have left is our stubborn capacity not to let go and give up. I shudder to imagine where you and I both would be right now had we not hardened our hearts and carried on no matter what. Probably we'd be in a grave somewhere. The graveyards are filled with untimely deaths of those who simply choose to surrender. Never give up Lynn. Die with your boots on........ even if thy're special boots for your painful condition. Something honorable that is.
