Stress, Weight and current physical disabilities

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

In January of 2008, I weighed 138 lbs. As of today, I way 163. I know that stress and the inability to move much has not helped. I also have a couple of meds that assist with the weight gain. I am so unhappy right now. I hate being fat! emoticon
I can only do certain exercies at the moment. I am currently waiting a phone call to see the neurosurgeon to schedule a spinal fusion. That in itself will probably make me gain more weight. I am very limitated at this time with what I can and can't do. I am unable to stand at my kitchen sink long enough to wash the dishes or to rinse them off to put in the dishwasher. I hate to look in the mirror. But my husband told me I still looked beautiful. He understands why my weight is the way it is. I still feel sick any time I look at myself or put on clothes. That's another thing. I can only wear certain clothes. Again, and againk, and again. I gave all my overweight closes to Goodwill before my back blew out. I am miserable.

    Of course, my Thyroid has been going up and down throughout all this. I started lower than I am now, but I did go all the way up to 180. I have lost about 7 pounds thus far. emoticon So, I am proud in that aspect. I expect more and more to come off as time goes by. I am getting better at my eating. So that is a plus! emoticon

    Hang on, and be as positive as you can be. It feels terrible to be in pain and to be gaining weight. I've been there and lived through it--you can too. If you need someone to talk to, I'm here for you.

    Huggles! I wish that things weren't so hard for you, but keep your hopes up and life will come around. It never does any good to allow yourself to feel miserable for very long. You've been blessed with a supportive husband, that is a wonderful thing!! Best wishes for you, and hang in there...there are people who care!!

    Blessed Be
