    In2deep4me reacted to Nightjar in Weight loss thread 2021   
    I've set myself a new weight loss goal. 14 pounds to lose by xmas 2021... 
    I've been cutting down on carbs and keeping things simple. No bread. I've lost 4 pounds so far doing that. I gained about 7 pounds with my 2 recent major stress events and I'm working on getting the last three pounds of that off..... And another 12 pounds by xmas 🎄 🎄🎄
    It's not the be all and end all but it's better for health and wellbeing so I'm back on it with this 🤔

    Yesterday. Climbing for 90 minutes. Walking for 16K steps. A little tired today and tight hamstrings. I wonder why? 🤣
    Will be doing yoga today. Hopefully can get up off the floor after I start...

    I have yet to return to the office but when I do, I am going to do whatever I can to avoid any sort of conservation or interaction with co-workers that is not work related. I have always been uncomortable with “small talk” and avoided sitting in tne lunch room and hardly ever attended gatherings or happy hours but now will avoid them 100%. I don’t like sharing personal info especially in regards to a certain issue that is a popular topic these days.

    Let's see.
    Around people you don't know. Never be too honest. mildly honest at most. Too much politically correct BS in the world. Strangers don't want to hear it.
    Around people you know. Be very honest, but not brutaly honest. Don't complain all the time or tell everyone about their faults. You just drive people away. It's a balance of good/bad news.
    At work. Never tell executives the brutally honest truth. Even it means saving them millions of dollars. They don't want to hear it. C-level types consider you a problem not telling them what they want to hear. Mid-level managers consider you a trouble maker because you tell them stuff they don't want to pass up the food chain to those C-level types. Line managers. Tell them anytrhing you want. They're powerless and just there to babysit, drive cattle, and do as their told. Fellow workers. Anything you complain about they have probably already heard. You're just preasching to the choir.
    In general anything that has "brutaly" in it is going to come back on you and then you'll be upset that someone does something brutal to you.

    In2deep4me got a reaction from Bulgakov in Genetic testing   
    The genetic testing doesn't tell you which med will make your depression better. It simply ranks all medications as to how your body can metabolize them. If you're a poor metabolizer of a drug then that is a red flag to stay off it or take only low dose and careful monitoring.
    I use the info to stay away from certain meds my body will not utilize properly and/or could cause harm, like nojoy found out. I'm also a poor metabolizer of Wellbutrin but can tolerate low dose SR version.
    All the SSRI and SNRI drugs showed no adverse effects on me. In practice SSR don't help me much and slow me down way too much. I do better on SNRI. The test showed a handful of other non-antidepressent meds I should not take that have big red flags. I have them marked off with my GP in case the conversation ever comes up.
    The testing is not covered by insurance. It's out of pocket.

    I'm glad I finally got back to the cinema but I wouldn't really recommend this film...It's just so depressing.... Not what I was looking for.... Outstanding performances by Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman but y'know very depressing. After Covid I need cheering up 😬 Cinema was cool though.. I was glad we didn't have to wear a mask while seated 👍

    The Ring  It's not bad.  It's pretty good but it's another mostly corny horror movie I'm too much of a wimp for.😒

    In2deep4me got a reaction from nojoy in Welbutrin and Sertraline   
    @nojoy
    Interesting. You had the genetic testing, but only on mental health drugs. I had the genetic testing done and it covered a very large amount of meds beyond just anti-depreeants. They also offered lifetime additional testing of any drug I get put on that is new from when I was tested. I'm allowed 5 new drugs to be tested against before I would have to pay some minor fee. Like you I am also a poor metaboilizer of Wellbutrin. I take 75mg SR to keep the dose at its lowest. Only to help offset the affects of Cymbalta. It doesn't work great, but it helps. I was also told to take Cymbalta at bedtime to offset the drowsy affect. That doesn't seem to make a lot of difference.

    ICARUS. It's a true story about the Russian state run olympic athlete doping program. Pretty sad to see just how long its been going on. Much longer than I thought, goes back to the 60s... And the most pathetic part, watching the likes of Putin and company, completely denying all of it.

    Not really 😬 I've got anxiety mach 10 at the minute. It helped. A bit. I'm hitting up the yoga mat in the morning. It's gonna have to be strenuous to make a dent. I might have to resume daily strenuous practice to get a hold of this thing 🤔 Fingers crossed that helps tomorrow 🤞

    Morgue  It's subtitles the whole way through and low budget but still pretty good.  I'm turning into a wimp when a low budget horror movie messes with me like that.

    @sober4life - Be careful in this heat with the mowing. Getting dehydrated is way too easy. Glad I don't have yard work anymore. At least from that perspective. Not having any land at all kinda suks... I can mow the lawn with a pair of scissors in 15 minutes. 😉

    Started doing weights after a couple of months off from them. Seriously painful starting again. I feel like a whimpy old man. Did weights Thursday, cardio Friday, then climbing Saturday. Climbing was painful, but still fun. Sunday was rest day.
