I have been a little down the last few days, my weight suddenly ballooned up and I don't know why. Of course, it wasn't that good to begin with, but the last couple of weeks it seemed hard to even get out of bed. So, last Tuesday I went back to Weight Watchers and was shocked. It was worse than I had thought. Up 15 pounds in the last month. My eating habits hadn't changed, so something else must be wrong. I have a Dr. appointment next week, and I half way expect to be put on some kind of medication. I'm hoping that my first week at WW will show the doctor that I am seriously making an effort to change things and give me a reprieve from pills or shots.

Anyway, that and writing that really ansty chapter last night and I guess I looked in need of cheering up. My husband, who like all men can be a jerk or a saint, definatly scores points in the saint column today. He left just before lunch, saying he had to run an errand. Two hours later (and I was thinking things much nastier than jerk) he walked in the door with two dozen lavender roses. He handed them to me, gave me a hug and said 'You just looked a little down the past few days. Hope this helps.'

So here I sit, breathing in the most wonderful scent ever and looking at my roses. Guess it's been a pretty good week after all.

My sympathies on the weight gain. It may have been because of a metabolic slowdown. This could be the result or the cause of your tiredness, or it could be that both stem from the same cause (which could be as simple as stress). I hope your doctor can help without subjecting you to too much. It's good to know your husband's there for you. ::hugs::

It does seem to be a vicious cycle, the more tired you feel the less you want to exercise and the less you exercise the more tired you feel. The metabloic slowdown is certanly a possiblity as I have just entered menopause. Unfortunatly, another possibility is diabetes. My Mom is a diabetic and with the weight problem it is my biggest fear. Then again, the stress of worrying about the diabetes could be a part of it. We'll just have to wait and see. Thanks for the kind thoughts and the hugs. One can never have too many.
