Day #50: HOW CAN I STOP STRESS FROM AFFECTING MY WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?!


Tuesday, December 14, 2010

I'm ashamed to admit this week I am not doing too good. Losing momentum, maybe? I don't think so... I mean, I haven't been working out A LOT but I haven't skipped my walks, which is a sign I'm still on track. I am not overeating, which must mean I didn't quit.

Yet these days have been somewhat hard.

I use my computer to work, do my home workouts and (of course) to spark. It wasn't working well so this morning I finally got it fixed. Or so I thought... it crashed twice today and I feel worried because I need it!!!! Of course I can use it (I'm actually using it now) but I need it to work at its best because if my computer doesn't work, I cannot work. And I do need to work.

Then, I just found out I MUST go to the dentist asap emoticon and I got yet another email from my ex boyfriend and that always gives me mixed feelings. On the one hand, I feel happy because his emails make me feel he's still a part of my life. But, on the other hand, I feel sad because he's now living miles away from me and I miss him sooo much. I also got nervous because he told me he'd be coming to town for New Year's Eve... I'm silly enough to believe we've still got a chance because we've been on and off for like 8 years and we have this special bond.

Anyway, I am sharing all of this because these are the reasons that make me feel NOT hungry. That means I am eating below my range... not because I want to, but because I am just not that hungry...

I know the tooth thing and the computer thing have a solution. But the ex boyfriend thing doesn't... despite other people are sure it does. I just hope this situation won't ruin my weight loss efforts. What makes me feel mad at myself is that I was doing so good! But now I am all stressed out and I'm screwing up.

Sorry to share some personal details, but I just feel they have to do with my current (sinking?) eating habits.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP! I REFUSE TO GIVE UP!

    First of all thanks for sharing!!!

Eating below your range of calories is not good and that could make you gain more weight because we actually need food just not that much!

Think that evertything happens for a reason... Be positive!

If your ex is going for new year's eve and you still have hopes of getting together, well this is one opportunity to start losing more weight so when he sees you, he can let you know how much weight you have lost!!! see this as your motivation to be healthier!!! good luck!

    DON'T GIVE UP! Things will get better...I feel like this last week has just been ripping my in pieces but as long as you stay determined you will succeed! Don't forget to eat enough. I know it can be hard when your not hungry but not eating enough can hinder your weight loss and cause muscle loss as well. Try almond butter, juice, veg juice, or oils when cooking to get your cals up if you need to! Good luck :)
