Doldrums

Ok, so.  What the heck.

I’ve gained 5 lbs. in the past month. I’m right back where I was in what, October?  Also, why oh why am I taking so long to lose this weight!  Months of maintenance are annoying.

Worse even than that, last week was awful.  I’m talking multiple break downs at the office, kind of awful.  Despondency, anger, despair, hopelessness – all were in complete control over me last week.  Just like before.

I hated who I was then.  I worked so hard to get away from that place.  And one month – One Month – and I slipped right back in!

Then, I ran across this blog.  Go ahead, click on over.  It’s good stuff.  You know I love a good list!
