I am amazed at how much stress can take a toll. Over the last several days, I been dealing with my little circle of close knit friends losing our only male member. He's been acting a little off for a while, but finally, this weekend, the rest of us discovered he's a prescription drug abuser when he finally mentally snapped under the drug abuse. It has been so rough because they have been in Florida while I have been in Chicago. And trying to support my girlfriends emotionally through this...and having to do one of the toughest things in my life when I had to encourage them to call the cops on him after he beat and tried to rape one of my girlfriends and threatened to do the same to her daughter and our other girlfriend.
And I'm seeing the physical toll this is having now - I've shot up like 5 pounds in the last two days, and my back, from my neck down to my rear, is one big giant painful knot.
But, I cannot let this ruin my weight loss journey. He may have decided to ruin his life and three beautiful friendships, but I'm not going to let this be more than a hiccup in losing weight.
