What Is Chronic Depression or Dysthymia?

Chronic depression, or dysthymia, is characterized by a long-term (two years or more) depressed mood. Chronic depression is less severe than major depression and typically does not disable the person. If you have dysthymia or chronic depression, you may also experience one or more episodes of major depression during your lifetime.

the doctor gave me the explanation that this is what is causing my tiredness.

My Goals:
made it throughthe winter with no gain,now to see what i can do with the spring
approaching the one year anniversary with sparkpeople may 28 will be here in no time.

still on the front part of the winter 2011 thing and i am holding well on the goal to not gain over the winter months. today the dietician and i discussed the long term a 'one year' goal. i have been pretty consistant with the pound a week for the last three months. so thinking a year has 52 weeks and probably a plateu in there we came up with 40 pounds for the next year till dec.

winter is approaching and it is time to assess my goals for the next season

primary goal
lose slow and steady no gain backs.

attainable goal record food daily

hardest goal
commit to exercise more frequently



My Program:
1. track food- high priority daily. Reward 10.00 into savings for a special vacation when I reach my final goal. the longer it takes The better the reward. hoping for a cruise or motorcycle tour in another country(like austrailia or Europe).
2 exercise-put 1.00 for each workout session on gift card to splurge on mini goals (still not sure what i am calling mini goals)
3. housework- do a household chore at least one times per week.

Personal Information:
i live in Far West Central Illinois, my name is Veronica. I work for the State of Illinois as a Rehabilitation Case Coordinator (glorified secretary, personal assistant). I really hate to do housework, so I have a very cluttered home.

Other Information:
I am married, i have two adult children and one dog ( a teacup chihuahua named Diablo) and another aquired dog that is not mine( boston terrier named Joy). I ride a 2010 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Nostalgia.

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. Mark Victor Hanson
