I am usually better at taking weight off in the summer and thought it was because I ate more fresh foods. Now, I'm wondering.

I also suffer (to a mild degree) from SAD. I didn't know that it could make you crave carbs. Thanks for telling us.

Yes, there are people here who Know and suffer from SAD and it's carb craving affects!Or know someone who does!I definitely want to hibernate during the winter months.But of course that not being possible,you do have to put on a differnt face,and get through.I DO that being a MOM too.This site has helped motivate me up and off the couch, and away from the call of extra carbs, and their weight gaining effects.I gained less weight this year being involved and active with this team , Sweet Temptations, and others...Spring is here, the flowers are blooming,The grass getting greener. AND of course, once the rain subsides, the sun shines that much brighter and warmer!Great Luck to YOU! God Bless, and take care of you!

To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!

My sister suffered from SAD so I know how you feel. But winter is just about done and the good weather is done. Get outside when the sun shines and that alone will help your mood.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Hi Tina, good to hear from you! I know exactly what you mean, but it wasn't the seasons that affected me, it was whenever!!!! My husband used to say that I deserved an oscar for my performance in front of other people!
Even now, I could be crying into myself but smiling to everyone else, I guess we are just made that way and like everything else in life we learn how to cope with it,
I am sorry you have been feeling this way but lets hope things get better for you.

Hi ladies and gents! I'm thrilled to stop by and leave a few messages tonight because I think I am finally starting to feel like joining the living again! I have had my ups and downs with seasonal affective this winter ,especially from December - Early March and I have done little with my free time but play mindless games on facebook! I try to appear happy to those around me and to those I speak with on the computer but the pattern of listless,hopelessness and depression just seem to take over my being! I manage to do all that I am supposed to do in my home and not too many are the wiser but its quite a jeckle and hyde acting job that I pull off!

Did anyone know that SAD makes you crave carbs!!!!!! What a bad thing for a depressed individual with a weight issue! Cravings plus emotional eating plus trying to fool the world in to believing that you are perfectly fine when you really arent! AHHHHHHH!

Well the sun has been out and the weather has allowed for some open windows and now I just want to get on with being the person that I usually am!

Why do I send this after not being on here for a long while ......because I am sure there are a lot of you out there who suffer from this as well and I hope to let you know that you are not alone! Its so hard to understand the feelings and its so hard to explain to others! But there is always a better day..and we all struggle through and try to help each other as we deal with the emotional upheavals of life!

May you all find happiness this spring and further in to the year and I pray that many of you reach your weight loss goals this year ! God bless!

Hugs and blessings Tina

Without forgiveness life is governed by...an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.
