Just Me. And. My. Shadow.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Today, I stopped by my daughter's new workplace to see her in action at her new job. She was doing great but they were swamped so I bought a water and then left.

Anyway, when I was walking to my truck (after taking the stairs, not the elevator or escalator, thank you very much!), I noticed my shadow in front of me.

So I was watching us walk along and I realized: I dont hate my shadow anymore. In fact, my shadow had a pretty good hip sway going on and a jaunty little step as well. My shadow isn't gross like it used to be. In fact, my shadow was quite curvy and looked pretty good. Even from the side! So I guess I made a new friend today. Sweet. (I guess it also safe to assume we will be having 6 more weeks of winter, just in case you were wondering).

Stress, weight gain and WTH?

Thursday, November 11, 2010

So today is my official weekly weigh in. I am up 2 pounds. Believe me, I did NOT want to put that in my tracker but I made myself a deal to do that every week, no matter what so I did it.

I am telling you because I never knew that having stress could cause weight gain!

I live with alot of stress on a daily basis. Between running 2 businesses, a family, Racing obligations (we run a racing association for free, I mean, for fun!) there is alot going on. But that is every day stress and not different from any other day.

Monday was bad news about my daughter but we are already absorbing and dealing with that. (She has a referral to a top Crohn's specialist at UCSF but no appointment yet. Hopefully soon). I felt the stress in my body that day and still do.

I am sore, achy, HUNGRY and my body just feels like it is holding on to everything (do you know what I mean?).

It has taken a lot of will power to stop myself at the top of my nutrition range each day. It is interesting to me to be noticing how I am feeling. I realized that I used to feel this crappy every day! But I wouldnt walk and I would eat until I felt better. It is uncomfortable.

I have stuck to my nutrition, walked 2 out of 3 days so far this week (tonight will be 3 out of 4) so nothing is different.Been drinking the water as usual. I normally do not gain weight for no reason. I think I have only been "up" a few times since I began this and can usually figure out why without too much trouble.

Am I in some sort of adrenaline-fight-or-flight mode? I guess I just need to sit with being uncomfortable, try to do my job, be a mommy and stay the course. Have any of you experience stress related weight gain while sticking with your program?

    watch your sodium intake, causes weight gain. Make sure you get in your water.

OR you very well could have hit your first plateau. Shock your body... eat a bunch of calories one day, then the next day eat not enough, then go back to your regular schedule. It should work

    You and Kady and the doctor's are still in my prayers. I'm glad to hear she's seeing someone who specializes in Crohn's. I think that's important as well as finding a surgeon who is extremely knowledgeable/experienced with the specific body area that is giving her trouble.

I'm sending you lots of hugs.

    Are you getting enough sleep ?

Lack of sleep and stress and I will gain every time. Does something to your metabolism (why isn't that four letter word?).

Are you taking vitamins? Maybe there is some additional water weight gain going on. Either way - a gain is only temporary, you'll be losing shortly.

Not much I can add, but wanted to let you know that I am here supporting you! I know that you will get beyond this as soon as it is possible, but you need to be easy on yourself right now. You are a mom and that has to have an important place right now. Just keep on trying to stay in your range and getting some exercise (that's good for stress reduction too) and it will help you through this tough time! Praying for you!

    Stress... yep, this week in fact. Our son was just diagnosed with learning disabilities and ADD. It's been 2 weeks of meetings and doctor's appts, and yep, EATING! Honestly, I didn't understand emotional eating until these last 2 weeks. My weigh ins are Monday and I don't even want to know what it says. As of today, that scale is up 1lb, so I guess we'll see. Don't stress the stress right!?! Just stick to your plan, and it'll all work out!

    Stress just makes me make bad decisions that lead to weight gain. One of those bad decisions is Mexican food and I have been making it for the last couple weeks. Last night was really bad and I still feel sick and it is after noon. I hope you feel better soon!

    I can't add much to what everyone else has already said! Are you getting enough sleep, is your elimination system working well (did I say that daintily enough?). are you eating too much salt and retaining fluid, are you changing up your amounts of calories on different days, are you changing up your exercise?
You are such a busy lady with so much stress right now. Try to relax a few minutes each day in a place where no one can bother you! Hugs!

    Hey Mama, this too shall pass. that was my gpas fav line. i use it when things feel overwelming. I have found for me the scale lies! I can go weeks w/great eating and no movement, or the scale goes up! , than bam! I lose 4 pds at w/i time, so instead of using the scale to look at my success, I use my commitments. If I stay under cals and move, the pds will melt away, eventually! Also if you look from Month to Month instead of wk to wk it tells a better picture. Happy Vets' day!!!

I'm g lad to hear your family is pulling thorough this hard time. I've heard great things about UCSF. I live just over the Bay and work in the city so if you need ANYTHING, please don't hesitate to ask. *hugs*

As for the gain, it's 100% stress. *hugshard* I'm sorry, honey. I'm proud of you for tracking it, though!

    I'm sorry you're having such a rough week. You've been in my thoughts (particularly having an aunt that suffers from Crohn's, I really do understand the experience to some extent - though I know it's always harder when it's your child.) But your schedule makes ME gain weight from stress just thinking about it. So it's really no wonder your body is clinging to its comfort fat right now.

But I know it'll go away. Just keep doing what you're doing and try to take some time to do something that levels you out. It's different for everyone, but we've all got something if we stop to think about it. Thinking of you and yours today. Go get 'em, tiger. (It was too weird and cheesy of a statement to pass up.)

    The best stress reliever I have found is HIIT...(High Intensity Interval Training) ...you push yourself to the absolute MAX for 12-15 min...and then you are so happy it's over (tired, too) the endorphins are "popping" and you feel amazing!!! This is a great work-out for your whole body!!! My favorite is www.bodyrock.tv...she has so many different work-outs to choose from so you never get board and no gym membership required!!! Also, the book, You Are Your Own Gym by Mark Lauren and Joshua Clark....awesome!!!

    Oh mama. don't sweat it. It will go away next week.I have totally noticed that extreme stress makes me gain too. Stay the course. keep doing what you are doing. There is some great information at about.com under weightloss about the body releasing more cortisol, a stress hormone when we are stressed out. This leads to decrease in metabolism yada yada yada , blah blah blah....
Anyway, hang in there and take that bubblebath, Play frisbee with your doggie, or make your husband stop and buy you flowers! Take some time for you!!!xoxoxoxo T

When stress hits it takes a physical toll on our bodies. It can throw off our metabolism which will cause weight gain. I thought I was imagining this but talked to my doctor who laid it all out for me.

You have so much on your plate and have been a motivator for so many of us on here. Please take some time for yourself to unwind so you can stay healthy and on track.

    Weight gain yes, but I haven't really thought if any of this was stress related. I have lots of stress as well being the "bread winner" of the house. I guess, I could take a closer look to see if stress is adding pounds. Thanks for the blog and things will get better, just hang in there. We are all here for you.

    Stress makes weight stick to me. It makes it impossible for me to lose it...and I hate sounding like those cheesy commercials, but its that stubborn belly fat. If I'm stressed, it stays in my waist. ANNOYING.
I don't know what to tell you as to how to combat it, other than to find a way to relax more... but yeah, easier said than done. I hardly get a chance to relax and if I could change that, I would...My biggest form of relaxation is by taking a bubble bath. Just so I get time for myself with no one else interrupting ....but even still...I get interrupted. *sigh!!
Maybe someday!

8 months, 55 pounds and a million messages

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Hello my sparkies! Today is 8 months here on spark. Hard to believe how much things have changed since then! I have lost 55 pounds so that is half what I want to lose. I have made some amazing friends that I cant remember being without.
I live a pretty healthy life nowadays and I like it. Alot.

I woke up to a million messages on my spark page and I was thinking I got hacked or something but then found out I am "Done girl of the day" which is a team I joined a bit ago. A bunch of rockin' babes are on the team and they name a DGOTD every day and apparantly, that is ME today!


I guess we all get to that point where we are just DONE with the weight and all the baggage that comes with it. I know I was. I know you were.

But I am not done losing and I am not done fighting or tracking or walking. So while I appreciate the honor of being DGOTD, I am not done and I won't forget it.

So I am done and not done and that makes me what, medium rare?

What is wrong with you people????

Monday, November 08, 2010

Every day, all I hear is how you want to be smaller! How is that gonna work?

You have HUGE hearts!!!What will contain them if you are tiny?

How will it be possible for me to feel your HUGS from around the world or cry on your gigantic shoulders (Thanks T!) if you guys shrink?

Your legs HAVE to be so big to stand beside me like you do! Your hands have to reach out sooooo far to get to me!

You are larger than life, massive forces in my life, solid ground beneath my feet, today and every day. I cannot imagine any one of you smaller. In fact, every day, you grow. In my heart, my esteem, my respect, my fondness, my gratitude.

I guess it will be ok if you lose weight, just dont lose who you. Some things are not replaceable.

Today's surgery update

Monday, November 08, 2010

Well good news and bad news: Kady got through the surgery and is home and resting. The surgeon was able to open the stricture but then they found another one higher up. Because of the location, it was too dangerous to try to open it up.

Which means, she will have to have the colostomy bag. We are waiting till next week when biopsies come back but within the next few months, this will be her fate.

I wanted to thank you all for your prayers and support. I will back on spark later. Love Jan

I remember when my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes being told how lucky we were to be in this country because in some countries it would be un-treatable. I know that our medical miracles are little consequence when it is your daughter/son having to live "different"ly from others. But, from what I have seen, Kady sure seems strong enough to adjust to this and enjoy her life. Here's to all of you!

    Sad as the news is, I think you'll find that, after the first shock of the bag, she'll deal with it as well as she has the rest of her illness. It is wonderful that she came through this surgery so well. Stay strong! Prayers still coming your way! Hugs!

    Jan, I'm sorry to hear that! Kady is a strong young woman and I pray that she heals up from this surgery fast. I have been thinking of your family often and praying. emoticon
