I am finding it extremely difficult to handle this recession/depression. I lost my job 6 months ago because the owners sold the business. I have been job-hunting with little to no success ever since then.
I am lucky that my husband has a good job that offers us health insurance or we would be in even worse shape than we are.
One good thing, though. In the past, whenever I was under this kind of stressful situation, I would EAT!!!! I would also just give up on exercise as well. NOT THIS TIME! I am watching what I eat and I am walking at least 60 minutes daily. I will not give up this time around. It took me a long time to reach this point...but I know I am happier by far at this weight. I still remember all the discomfort when I carried 112.50 excess pounds on my body. I was afraid to go to movies because I wasn't sure if I would be able to fit in the seat. In fact, I would only go to movie theaters where the armrest can be raised. Now I don't even have to think about it anymore! Yippee!!!
