I haven't really made much effort of late.

Went through a bad bout of depression/anxiety (still not over it), and travelled some.

I'm so sick of being this weight. I don't really see it that much when I look in the mirror at myself, but then when I see a photo someone else has taken, or when I'm out some place and there's a new and different mirror, I see how big I've gotten.

The only other time I really notice is when shopping or trying on clothes I haven't worn in a while.

I think I'm going to try and commit to a 1/2 hour on the exercise bike every day and see where that gets me.

I know depression and lack of exercise/being overweight are tied together, but it's very difficult to link day-to-day stuff to long term goals.

The other week I exercised two days in a row and caught myself thinking: "I exercised twice! Why haven't I lost 40 lbs already??"

I've made a meal plan for the week, with a approximately 1200 calories per day.

- For breakfast: smoothie made from a cup and a half of strawberries (73 Cal), a banana (105 Cal), a 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (80 Cal), 1 cup of tangerine green tea (0 Cal), 1/2 cup of quick oats (150 Cal), 1 tablespoon of flax seeds (37 Cal), and a 1/4 cup of almond slices (124 Cal). (Total: 285 Cal)
- For lunch/snacks throughout the day: Apple (110 Cal), 1 cup of baby carrots (70 Cal), 1/4 cup mixed salted nuts (247 Cal), jalapeno & cheese tortilla wrap (220 Cal) with 2 tablespoons of hummus (70 Cal). Total: 717 Cal)
- For Dinner: 1 bell pepper (31 Cal) stuffed with 1/2 cup canned salmon (108 Cal), 1/2 of spinach (3 Cal), and 2 tablespoons of hummus (70 Cal). (Total: 212 Cal)
DAY'S TOTAL: 1214 Cal



I've never really done the whole calorie counting before, but I figure watching my food is an important part of losing weight.

I'm going to try and get on the exercise bike for 25 minutes a few times a week as well.

I'm currently on an antidepressant, and see my doctor once a month to get my prescription renewed, and noticing my consistent weight gain, he's had me weighed every time I go in. So although I will be weighing myself at home, I'll probably get the more accurate weight when I'm at the doctor's office.
