Buddy System

I have a friend who has been very helpful in getting me out of the house.  Today she called and asked if I wanted to go to the zoo. It's a great place to walk and the weather was nice. My impulse was to stay home because I am in that mode where I don't feel like leaving the house. The difference in me now and when I used to get like this is now I DO leave the house even when I have that feeling.  So I went and it was a great outing.  She said she was joining weight watchers and that there's a 1pm Sunday meeting not far from where I live. So I said, I will join, too.  I think this will be good for me to go to a weekly meeting/weigh in and have a buddy to do it, too. Here is hoping for getting back to the normal body mass index.. it is really just around the corner.

I hate to go out when I am depressed. And I always feel better when I do. Even if I just go stand in the road for a few minutes it is better than the house. Why the road you ask? Because the road is plowed. If I stand on the deck I have to shovel it first. But that is another story. Glad to have you back.

thanks, guys!! I am feeling a tad better today even though last night I woke up around 2:30 am and was awake two hours running scenarios through my head about family stuff and then tyring to meditate the thoughts out of my head, and so on....
