My weight is up a little today. I know it's because I ate Cream of Wheat yesterday. I'll eat it more to see if it bloats me and just deal with the slight scale changes from carbohydrate water weight.

The last two weeks I have been hungrier than usual. I am not sure if it is the increase in my Celexa dose (three weeks ago) and/or the increase in my thyroid meds (two weeks ago). Either way, it sucks. And it's not like my metabolism is higher and I'm losing weight because I'm not.

Decided to skip cardio today. I walked up to the Safeway to buy a few items (like a 10 Ride bus pass), then caught the bus to the gym. I did one hour of upper body weight training, caught the train, then walked to work from the train station. I stopped at WalMart on the way to pick up the Celexa prescription I put in yesterday, and transferred my thyroid med prescription over by bringing in the Costco bottle from home. I also got more WalMart brand Crystal Light, Cookie Crisp cereal, a new pill cutter, and WalMart brand Benedryl.

Tomorrow is laundry.

From my perspective as her friend, it helps! =-) I knew her before the medication. Night and day.
Unless the Lord intervenes, this will be a struggle for life for her.

Trust in Lord,

All else is sand!

Angie, you it helps a lot. Not every med is right for everyone, but of the three I have been on, this one is the best. As soon as I cut back even a small amount the depression comes right back.
