I think that my recent bout of depression has caused me to gain weight, but when I've asked other people they've been unsure. Some have even thought I've lost weight. I know that my belly is a different shape than it used to be, but I can't actually work out whether that's because it's bigger or smaller. And I can't find out by getting on the scales, because I don't believe that finding out how much mass I have is a useful indicator of physical health.
What I do
know is that my physical health is lousy - I'm unfit and not eating too well. So that's the next thing to work on. I seem to alternate days of eating very well with days of eating very badly, and it's hard to co-ordinate the two. ( Collapse )
