Well here I am after nearly 2 weeks of not publishing a “proper” post. So here is my apology for not being around recently and kind of just disappearing off the the world of social media.
I recently decided to go back to my GP and have a word with him about possibly going back onto my anti-depressants, after seeing the signs but kind of ignoring them. The thing that made me have a kick up the bum was talking to my slimming world consultant. I had expressed that I felt like I was sabotaging my weight loss journey and that I just couldn’t get my head into it. I felt I had lost all confidence and motivation to do it.
In actual fact I was losing the motivation to do many things, I was tired all the time but sleeping really well, my appetite was up and down etc. These are all things that I know to look out for but I just thought it was the January blues of just having Christmas, going back to work etc. Any way I spoke to my GP and he agreed to put me back on my tablets at the same dose as I was on last summer. He also had me have some blood tests, which I received the results of earlier this week. It turns out I have a vitamin D deficiency, so that could be a reason for all the symptoms I have experiencing. However I do believe they are 2 separate things that are just going on at the same time.
So I am here just a little over a week since starting my tablets and 4 days into taking vitamin D supplements. I have decided to start using my SAD light again to see if that can help. My diet isn’t bad at all due to following slimming world. I just hope that over the next couple of weeks things start to pick up and I get back to feeling like myself.
I need to push myself to get back to writing and being back on the blogging scene and really push my sw journey. I hope you all aren’t to disappointed in my disappearing for a short while. I promise I am back 🙂
