Looking For Energy

I was hoping losing some weight would give me more energy but so far not so. I guess the lupus is just not that well controlled right now. I have been working on reorganizing my kitchen cabinets but can only do a small amount of time because it causes of so much pain in my arms and shoulders. I'm am so short I have to reach for everything!

I saw my psychiatrist today and he said managing my bipolar disorder was like trying to balance a large ball on a thin wire. We both laughed and I told him I was sorry I was such a pain. He reassured me that I was not the problem that my illness was.

Only 2 weeks until my knee surgery. It would be nice to loose a couple more pounds but I am really stuck. I am trying to eat healthy and not some crazy crash diet this time. I know I have lost 1000 lbs in my life!  It was nice to hear from everyone. Take care.

Wanda, I don't want to be preachy, but I encourage you to look at weight in a different way. We have all been so brainwashed to believe that thin equals healthy and fat equals unhealthy, thin equals beautiful and fat equals ugly. I have an eating disorder and I still struggle with this. We have all been lied to by the multi billion dollar diet industry.
Please google Health at Every Size. Also check out
I became bulimic at the age of twelve and yo-yo dieted until I was in my mid forties. Weight loss is not a be all and end all.
If I had talked to another person the way I used to talk to myself, they would have been within their rights to punch my lights out.
Please don't be so hard on yourself.
