I like “change for the sake of change”. That’s what a former employer of mine told me. It was before I was diagnosed as bipolar so I’m certain she was right. Promoting change is perceived as one of my faults or assets, depending on who you ask and what day it is. Living up to these standards I’ve decided it’s time to change the focus of this blog. Don’t worry, nothing too major going on, just something I need to do about this innertube around my waist. Since I started five months ago the primary focus has been on coping with having bipolar disease and secondarily focusing on my diet, exercise and weight loss. I shared plenty of stories about Tigger Mania, the Chihuahua Syndrome, etc. While I’m still crazy as a loon, I have seen dramatic change due to medication and therapy. I’ve only experienced a few days lately where I’ve had high mania or low depression. I’m not one hundred percent balanced, but I may never be.
When I started this blog I weighed a whopping 293 lbs. Today I weigh a whopping 279. I grant you that a 14 lb loss is better than a stick in the eye, but it’s not much in the grand scheme of things. For my own health and safety it’s time to flip the coin. Weight loss needs to be my primary focus, while I continue to share my life as someone diagnosed as bipolar.
What does this mean to you my dear readers? Probably not too much. You’ll see more pictures of me I’m sure (sorry about that), more moaning about excercise, and huge crocodile tears over the loss of my regular Ben & Jerry runs.
Don’t worry old friends who are more interested in the roller coaster that runs through my brain. You’ll get plenty of that too. So I’m off now. I need to go to Dunkin Donuts to get a dozen to enjoy while I ponder what to write about tomorrow.
