That is a huge ( no pun intended) part of my problem. I’ve gained about 30 lbs over the last 18 months or so. And I’m miserable. Chicken/egg thing: did the depression cause the weight gain or did the weight gain cause the depression? Before that I had not been driving for several years. Walking/ riding everywhere, I had taken off 75 lbs without even trying. When I got my car, it was almost instantaneous. The weight just started piling on. First my bike was stolen and I could not afford another one so where I’d ridden for so long, now I drove. I still walked but I also moved to where the places I needed to be were too far to walk in a reasonable amount of time. And after the first 15 or 20, I kind of lost my will. Working on that part now. I know even dropping 10 lbs will make a world of difference in how I feel.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
