MrsMagyk's Journal, 20 August 2018

I had pizza last night, but stayed under my rdi for the day. I recently lowered it because I have lost weight. I never thought that I would be able to eat around 1100 calories a day and not be hungry.

My life is causing me to be stressed out. We recently purchased our house and we may have to move. We are going to be losing part of our income. It will be very tight if we end up staying. We have lived in a house for 12 years and I am not sure I can handle living in a apartment. I am bi-polar and I do not adjust well to new environments. I'm worried for my mental health. Losing weight and doing yoga helps keep me in a balanced state of mind, but I am not living close to other people right now. My family suffers when I am not feeling well. It is hard to even get myself to go to the grocery store when I am depressed. The medicine I am on has helped me greatly, but my symptoms have a tendency to surface when I am stressed. I'm sure everything will work out, it always does. Just worried, that's all. It helps to know that I still have fatsecret as a place to vent. That won't change if we move. I just feel like the pic sometimes.

I know exactly what you mean...and I hope getting the feelings out there helps. I’m sorry there are possible hardships coming, but you are physically better ready to handle them since you’re taking care of yourself, and mentally you’ll need to keep checking yourself, your stress levels, and confiding in whoever you have that you can talk to. I ate pizza too, on Friday....and now I’m over it and moving on

Hang in there. You are doing well! Your mental health is super important to your life as well as weight loss (stress hinders). I have struggled all my life with my stress levels and the mental afflictions that come with them (depression, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, ect.). When things get too overwhelming for me it helps me to find something to keep busy, takes my mind off of it. Everyone I know says that I need to take time for 'self care' and relax, go shopping, or have coffee with a friend. This does not work for me. Being still I dwell on things, shopping means people and I dont do well with that, and when you are having a tough time coffee with friends means judgement or them trying to fix it ( with my friends at least). House keeping helps me the most. Yesterday I scrubbed the bathroom- ALL OF IT, lol. The ceiling, door jams, top of the light fixtures, inside and out of the cabinets and organized them- as well as all the normal stuff. :-) And it helped me recover from the constant noise that was getting to me. ::shrug:: Everyone is different and I hope you can find what works for you. :-)

Good luck with whatever happens - I am bi-polar as well so I can completely understand where you are coming from - I hope you can keep your stress down - I know it is extremely difficult - all the best
