I've been reading some of your journals. Some of you have lost quite a bit of weight since your spouses have been gone. I've lost a little bit of weight without trying or changing my eating habits or activity level. But I still have a long way to go. It's logical that we want to get healthier for our kids' sakes, since we're the only parent they have left. I went through something (might still be going through it subconsciously, I don't know) and I'm wondering if anyone else here can relate. When thinking about weight loss, a couple times I've caught myself thinking, "Oh, sure. You didn't even try to lose weight when Greg was alive and that would have been great for him/us. Now that he's gone, you want to try to lose weight??" I guess it's kind of a guilt thing, if that makes any sense. I think it may be self-sabotage in the weight-loss department. Can anyone relate?

I've been really depressed lately. It's not super bad but it's bad enough that I'm spending like 10 hrs in bed and I do nothing all day. I did get my lexapro dosage raised from 5 mg to 10 mg so once I start the new dose I will hopefully feel better. Depression is the absolute worst.
