Start Weight:(29 Nov 12) 152.0 lb
Current Weight:(30 Mar 14) 150.0 lb
Goal Weight:147.0 lb
following: jamoza's own diet
performance: losing 0.3 lb a week

I was at a low ebb at the beginning of this year - bad medical diagnosis followed by death of family pet. I wasn't depressed but I did feel sorry for myself for a few weeks and was inexorably putting weight on and not caring about what I ate. I started going out for a power-walk a few times a week instead of sitting around at home on my computer (about 2 to 3 miles at a time). I then started running a little and have now joined a friendly local running group, with whom I run three times a week, as well as running by myself another two or three times per week. I feel much more positive and find that I want to be out walking or running every day. I found this site by accident but have decided to use it as part of a structured diet/health/fitness regime.

Anyone reading this please feel free to message me and/or add me as a buddy:

Confession to Strangers or Trying to get out of Depression
I was at a low ebb at the beginning of this year - bad medical diagnosis followed by death of family pet. I am not claiming to have been as depressed as you sound but I did feel sorry for myself for a few weeks and was inexorably putting weight on and not caring about what I ate. I like doing crosswords and reading the Sunday paper throughout the week, so I started to walk to my local McD's and back and do my crosswords and reading. It was about 2.75 miles return trip and I tried to power-walk to increase the calories burned. I enjoyed it so much that I started running a little and have now joined a friendly local running group, with whom I run three times a week. I feel much more positive and find that I want to be out walking or running every day. I have lost over a stone since August. I am also a Christian and pray that you will overcome this depression (try not to describe it as 'my depression', if that helps).
