Those Pesky Pounds

Those pesky pounds. . .and I'm not talking about currency. I am talking about the poundage that has become a part of me since our move. More specifically, my thighs! It's been a stressful move; it still is a stressful process. And, guess what! Apparently I am a stress eater.

After a few months in the gym and even talking to my thyroid doc, the extra weight has stayed on. So yesterday I started a process where I only ate fruit during the day, a regular meal and dessert at night, and only water all day.

My life stinks.

I woke up this morning with a huge, huge headache. I think that my body is in sugar shock! It wonders where all the good times went, and so do I.

So now is the time to decide on what is a healthy weight, a manageable weight, a "accept that I am not in my 20s anymore" weight. Since I've worked out and worked out and stayed here, maybe this is my new normal? Maybe I can go eat a brownie now?

I've heard a lot about this today. It sounds like a lot of women are going through this. I've been trying to come to terms with my body lately too. We're not always friends, especially all the extra weight and skin it decided to hang on to.

My mom and I are trying this whole month to only have sweets on the weekend--maybe one or two. We went an entire week (almost) without anything. The first little bit was hard, but now I am really aware of all the times that I reach for some random treat--at home, at work, wherever, that I really don't need. Wow. I think the body goes into sugar withdrawal at first, but after a while, you get used to it.

After reading your post yesterday, I couldn't help thinking about you all day!!! I've been fighting those pounds for over 20 years. (since I turned 20!!) I think if I didn't fight them, I'd look a whole lot worse than I do today. I'd like to get rid of 10-15 pounds, but all-in-all I'm happy . . . . fight the fight!!! (it keeps you healthy!!)

By the way . . . you were very thin in the first place, a couple extra pounds can't hurt too much!!

You've always been super thin. I am sure the extra pounds torture you but it's cool--you are still hot.
