Ok, since my last blog post I have been thinking about why I lose so slowly. I am beginning to think that stress might play a big role in why I hold onto fat. I know that it triggers the release of cortisol which inhibits fat release especially from the abdominal area.
My life has never been low stress it seems that it has always hectic with family or other problems. I thought those times were over when I left my old life behind but that suddenly the problems have found me again. This time it is my job that stressing me, so maybe I should consider changing career paths.
This time is different because I will not turn back no matter what happens. I love myself too much to allow outside forces to determine my path. Have I strayed a little from time to time? YES, however I am not giving in I am determined to battle this like I was battling an illness (which I might if I don't get some of this weight off).
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who have responded to my blog and for all of your kind words. Hugs to everyone and please leave your responses, encouragement, or criticisms below.
