My husband says, "isn't someone supposed to be happy when they've started losing weight?" When I had my stroke close to 6 months ago I was so ready to get healthy. I was all set to lay aside the sugar and chocolate. But the more I started learning about healthy eating and exercising, the more I'd realize that all this time I'd been stress-eating. So I'd set aside the desire to pop something in my mouth so I'd feel better only to find that I was all stressed over the events taking place. So I started to journal- but I've since stopped journaling and am just wishing I could have a better relationship with my husband so we could talk about the things that are bothering me.
Then the verse in Philipians comes to mind... Be anxious for nothing...I'm finding such a hard time casting my cares on the Lord. So worried about the daily cares. Lord, please help me get in your Word. '
I've made an appt. with my local doctor to talk to him about some depression. I can't wait to hear what he has to say. So, as the weigh-in goes, my weight seems to be going down but I need to de-stress. On to learn more about releasing stress.
