We are all moved in. My scale is among the missing, so I have no idea what I weigh. Months of stress, weeks of skipping exercise, and making wrong food choices had taken a toll. 3.5 weeks ago nothing in my closet fit except two pair of fat jeans and a couple tees. Very disheartening. I was also exhausted, not sleeping, skipping the gym more regularly than I was there, on a food binge, and up to my buns in packing boxes and saying good bye to my former home and all our friends. We've been here about two weeks. I am already slimming down again..combo of the heat, hard work getting settled, and the fact that i have started to walk at least, even 'tho not booked into a gym yet. I know this because increasingly more of my clothes fit me. Still don't know what I weigh, but it's less than three weeks ago. My body likes this new climate..the sun and heat are right up my alley! After 20 years in a temperate rain forest, I'll happily take the mid Atlantic!

I am fortunately exercising five days a week. I am not eating well at all. Steady stream of inspectors, appraisers, movers giving estimates,dismantling my life and packing it up in boxes, getting ready for a huge yard sale, saying good bye to friends, wondering if we are doing the right thing, speculating on what the future will bring, and oh yes..a huge explosion a block from home that killed two people we knew. Doritoes and wine won't cure any of the above, so why do I persist in behaving as if they will?

This has to stop. I have eaten my way up at least 10 lbs since we put the house on the market. There, I said it. Yes, we've been under stress, yes DH's job loss 8 mos ago was a slam dunk, yes we are selling out and moving away. Yes I have been killing myself packing, sorting, discarding, cleaning, polishing and having strangers trek through my home. But ya know what? A big Mac or a candy bar doesn't get him work, get us moved, get the house sold, or mop my floors every single day, or make me tolerate the idea of home invasion any better. So why does my head tell me it will? LOL! Enough of this happy cruditis..I am getting chubby again, my jeans are too tight, and I am earth bound and miserable due to the extra weight. Doesn't take much with my small frame and short stature. I did get back to regular five day a week gym visits about three weeks ago, now for the food issue..I am declaring a hiatus on the stress eating. Enough is 10 lbs more than enough..and the house is finally under contract..YAY!

We've been readying our home for sale, listing it, and showing it in recent months. I am up a couple lbs, but exercising five days a week at the gym which is holding the line somewhat. Apparently I don't do that well with diet when things are unstable and life is stressful? I think you could safely say that! The good news is that I am still exercising, and the house is under contract. In about 6 weeks we will be relocated and beginning a new chapter. Happier stress..hope the "happier' part helps the diet efforts.
