  1. Dealing with mental health challenges on top of trying to stay sober and deal with stressful life events like my sudden move.  Not doing well right now, could use some prayers or other support.

      I'm praying for you Jody!

  2. I am in the middle of moving. It's not a move by choice, it's an eviction. So it's even more stressful than "just moving". I have no idea where I am going to go, since I have no income and am disabled and can't work. I am doing my best to pack my belongings, and stay on track with my medications/sanity and sobriety. And to still take care of myself. My move-out date is April 30, so this challenge is the perfect length. Diet Eat my three meals a day. Hopefully 3 squares. But just remembering to eat will be good! Eat at least 3 servings of vegetables a day, and at
  3. Another update, just for myself. Trying to check in weekly, challenge or not! I know there is a new one starting up, so I will likely go there and begin a new one, tweaking this one to fit my goals. So, how am I doing so far? Let's see . . . Diet Drop the iced coffee for more water. I already quit soda 3 months ago, and am still going strong! I have sucked at this. I went and had a three day binge! Bad bad bad! Eat a vegetable with one meal every day, even if it's only canned. Canned veggies are better than no veggies! Right? I got food stamps appro
  4. So, how am I doing so far? Let's see . . . Diet Drop the iced coffee for more water. I already quit soda 3 months ago, and am still going strong! I have had one iced coffee since last Thursday. No, make that two. One was really bad, a caramel iced coffee from McDonalds. The other wasn't as bad, just a plain iced coffee from Taco Bell. Much less junk in that one. I'm drinking lots of water, and have not had any soda, either. That's the longest I've gone without soda, I hope I can keep it up! Eat a vegetable with one meal every day, even if it's only canned.

  5. A little here a little there.  Not overwhelmed just yet, dare I feel a bit of hope?

  6. I'm 300 pounds. Walking hurts. I can't get far, maybe to the mailbox and back, without a lot of back pain. My current goal is probably pathetic, just 5 minutes of walking (or even marching in place) a day. But I was wondering if there are other exercises someone of my large size could do to help alleviate the back pain. Any ideas?
  7. Someone kick my butt into gear, I apparently can't do it all on my own.

      **kick, kick**  Think of where you want to be.  It's only possible if you work.

  8. I am joining this challenge very late. And I have a bad habit of not sticking with this whole thing. I suffer from depression and bi-polar disorder, as well as disabling anxiety disorder. So I might need lots of support and kindness and encouragement to keep things up. I want to want it as bad as everyone else seems to want it. So here I am, starting very late, but I picked easier stuff to do, stuff I think I can be successful at. I used the template I found somewhere else on the forums.

      Although it is a prerequisite. ;)

  12. Well, obviously I haven't done so well. I never get on this website. I never work on it, either. I've gotten fatter by about 25 pounds on top of it. I have very limited mobility. I have no idea what I can do for myself when I struggle so much with depression that I can't seem to make myself care most days. I only know that it's all getting worse instead of better, because I suck. I like what Lalie said, that sometimes exercise takes the form of shuffling around outside for half an hour. That's good. I don't need any more alone time, I'm basiclly a shut in. Not by choice, really. I
  13. I believe I am a druid. I do have a lot of core issues surrounding my emotional and mental health, in addition to my physical health. But as I am learning about mindfulness and meditation and beginning "large lady" yoga, I am finding that this might be my niche. I do have to modify a lot, to account for my large size and the fact that I have bad wrists and spinal stenosis and multiple sclerosis (for starters). I want to feel centered. I want to be mindful and in "wise mind". I want to connect with my body, know my body, and do what I can to help my body heal. And my emotional self as w
