The blahs

I have been feeling a little down and lacking enthusiasm. I think I was used to carb highs and comfort eating. Now I am out here in reality without a crutch. I did not feel like exercising last week but I did it anyway. I am hanging in there though and believing the blahs will pass. Not quite blue enough to be the blues.

they will pass, but during the blahs it's tough.

The blahs hit me when my hormones kick in about a week after my period & a few days before my period (2x a month is so not fair). Also, my SAD kicks in pretty bad starting at end of Sept/October, & just gets worse from there. The SAD light I use has been a life saver.

And yes, I agree, without the sugar to numb the feelings, they come out & we FEEL. Which is often very hard. For me, food was not just comfort but a companion, esp at night. Which is MESSED UP. But that is what it was. I'm trying to find companionship in books more & more, and divorcing myself from food.

Monday at my OA meeting someone made the comment "You can't have a relationship with an inanimate object." Simple & profound.

Take care of you!
