Here is what I eventually came up with:
This morning was my Wednesday Weigh-in, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that not only did I drop the pound I was up last week, I also lost another half-pound, bringing me to 130.5:
I didn't really do anything different this week. I ate all of my daily, weekly, and activity PointsPlus, like usual. It was a very tough week for me at the beginning, because I was feeling very binge-y, but thankfully, I didn't binge. A few people asked me to talk a little more about my history with depression/antidepressants. I've been pretty open about it here before, and it's not something I'm ashamed of.
I've had clinical depression since I was a child--probably around 10 years old? It wasn't "caused by" some event or anything in my life--I believe that it's physiological, which is why antidepressants help me. I didn't start taking them until I was 21. I've gone off of them a few times, trying to "naturally"cure depression with exercise, but that doesn't work for me.
I feel so much more "normal" when I take them; without them, I am extremely sensitive and I cry at the drop of a dime. I also lose interest in anything and everything that I like to do. Basically, I'm like one of those people you see on the antidepressant commercials, hahaha. The pills don't turn me into a zombie or anything--they just make me feel normal.
So anyway, that's the story behind the depression. Most of the time, I feel totally normal, but sometimes I go through bad spells. I know now that the bad spells eventually go away, and I just have to get though it until they do. Moving on...
Last night, I walked into my bedroom, and caught Chandler in the most awkward, funny position. I hissed at Jerry, "Bring me my phone!" I was afraid to move, because I didn't want Chandler to move. He gave me the funniest look:
Naturally, I posted it to Instagram, because it was begging for a funny caption; but I couldn't come up with anything clever, so I asked for suggestions. I genuinely laughed out loud when I read some of these responses:
Jerry sent me a text from work today, asking me if I want to go to La Pita for dinner--it was very random, because we never just go out to dinner for no reason. Of course I said YES. Yummmm.
