Out of Bed

Today I was able to not only get out of bed and get dressed but also put on makeup. That's a small feat. Even my teeth are clean. This week it got to the point where even brushing my teeth was a chore. My husband is currently giving an oil painting lesson in his studio. I am in our bedroom waiting for him to finish. Before he started the lesson he came into the bedroom to wake me up and said to get ready because he wanted to take me somewhere. I have no idea where. I didn't want to get up and it was difficult, but I did and am now waiting for him to finish.

I have been in bed so much this week that I actually got out of breath getting ready. That is how fat and out of shape I am. Being in bed 24/7 this past week certainly doesn't help. At the doctors yesterday the scales screamed "237!". Yes, I have gained weight again. I knew it and wasn't surprised. I am going to take down my weight goal widgets here until I start consciously working on it.

My husband is finished with his art class and is ready to go. I'll blog again later tonight.

Glad you got up today.
Have a great day, and have some fun. You are overdue for that.

Good for you getting up and ready. It's a real accomplishment when depression has been dragging you down. I hope you have a good time!

Getting out of bed, having a shower and brushing teeth are like the silver lining on a cloud when you are depressed.

Don't forget to get dressed as well!

Ana said...

Linda is right.
But you did it today!
Hope you have a good time!

yeah, I do live here, for the time being.
I'm down here cause of obvious problems, paying off Atlantic County superior court, and making a half ass attempt to clean up. And then I'm off to Jersey, Or NY again.

Dude...we are EXACTLY the same weight!! We should start a weight loss blog together or something, about our journey thru weightloss and depression and all our other "stuff" since we're pretty much equals on the same playing field........ discuss....

Crotchety - Thank you, dearie.

Immi - Thank you as well. It was a nice time.

Linda - OMG I just realized I forgot to wear my clothes. I hope no one noticed. :)

Ana - Thanks a bunch.

Cody - Thanks for visiting. I hope you get to jet out of here soon.

Cheri - I think that is a great idea. How weird that we are the same weight. We could call the blog something like, "237 NO MORE!". lol I am really thinking about this though....I'll get back with ya. I like the idea.

AD - Thanks. I'm glad that I did.

La - Thank you as well. He certainly did take me to two nice places this evening.
