diets are hard, but then so is life.

I know, I know...I should be referring to this as a life style change and not a diet.

Even so, diets, and life are hard.

Looking back at the past few weeks, I think I finally realized part of the reason I've been struggling with my diet.  I have been depressed about my mom passing away.
I struggle a lot day to day, sometimes just getting out of bed is too much.
I already struggle with depression and anxiety and I think it's just amplified.

I also have issues with seasonal depression, winter months of cold days really brings me down.
There's also the little bit of my asthma issues, where just thinking of being outside in the cold
sends me into a tailspin of worry and anxiety about getting sick or worse ending up in the
hospital with pneumonia...ugh!

This might all seem like a bunch of excuses, and maybe they are, but
I'm realizing that I really need to address my depression by seeking some help.
Maybe then once I start dealing with it, I will start to see some changes in my diet.
I mean it can't hurt to seek help and see if it makes a difference, right?
I see my doctor in about a week or so, hopefully that will make a huge difference.

That all being said,
I am stuck
The scale is stuck

It has not budged for weeks now.

Although, I have measured myself recently and I have noticed that those numbers have gone down some....so at least, something is working.
