Day 251 - Forgotten ....

Do you ever feel sometimes like the world just up and forgets about you when there is nothing exciting happening in your life.  The past few days I've been fighting a horrible depression.  It started when my challenge ended and everyone kinda quit posting and there wasn't anything to read anymore.  The highlight of my day was signing in and doing my journaling and then reading about others days and perhaps leaving a comment.  Then all of a sudden I'm posting but there is nothing to read.  No one was leaving comments or posting on their blogs and I felt terribly alone in the world, so I didn't blog for a few days.

I know that probably sounds silly as I never really expected anyone to read my blog anyway.  Ok, so I am back, not to please others but, to please myself and help me to continue on my journey.  I did take a picture of my weigh in on Monday morning and I was down 1.2 pounds (will post the picture when I remember where I left the  Not bad for a week but then that night I weighed in at TOPS and I was down 4.2 pounds from the week before.  That made my heart soar.  I haven't been walking as much this week due to buckets and buckets of rain coming down every day.  I did walk in the rain on Monday as it was just a light drizzle but every morning since then it has been pouring.  Even in spite of not being able to do my morning walks my step count has been pretty good.

Monday     12877
Tuesday       4235
Wednesday  5478
Today          6367 so far

I've been keeping my calorie count to around 1000 - 1200 and that suits me fine.


  1. I'm getting one of those canes with a seat that comes out so I can walk more. The park where I walk doesn't have anywhere to sit except at the beginning and my back/hip starts pinching up so bad I can barely make it around once. Hope it helps me.

    Great on the weight loss!

  2. Oh Tessa! I'm sorry you felt that way :( I wish blogger would have let me post! Those few days really through me off.
    LOL, on top of that, now I have been doing horrible and haven't wanted to post either... I knew your challenge was great motivation, but I never DREAMED I would completely loose control of my eating and walking when it ended!!! My goodness, I am almost back to the habits I started with :(
    All that changes tomorrow... I know, I should get on the treadmill and change it TONIGHT, but I just am not up to it.
    Just know that I was still thinking about you! I hope that depression is all gone.
    Look at those steps! Wow! Especially Mondays! Great Job on the loss, that is really awesome Tessa! That makes me want to get my butt back in gear!

  3. Tessa, I'm sorry you were left feeling depressed. I hope you are feeling in a sunnier mood today. I, too, get discouraged when I blog my heart out and get no comments. But like you said, ultimately I write for myself alone and that is what is important. WOW...great loss this week!!

  4. Are you feeling a bit better today? I hope you are - you are doing a great job and who's to say you can't do another challenge. That seemed to cheer you and give you motivation - so think up something new?

    I hope you post again soon. Know we are here and support you - but sometimes Blogger is a booger and posting/commenting can't be done [seems to be a theme this week.]


  5. I'm sorry, Tessa. I read a lot more often than I post comments. I really just tend to not say much, in comments or in meat world. I am going to see if I can get back in the habit of posting, though.

  6. awesome job on the weight loss!
