I'm starting over! After what I thought was a great start in November and even making it through Thanksgiving with only a small fluctuation in my weight just before Christmas it all went he__. I work as a 911 Dispatcher where we have a lot of turn over (it can be stressful). just before the Holiday we had someone quit without notice which left us shorthanded (we already had one person out on vacation) for the holidays. Shifts were changed almost daily and long hours were put in. Then with the holidays and obligations to meet and very little sleep my diet was hit and miss. Needless to say I sort of gave up trying for acouple of weeks. Most of the time I wasn't even sure what day it was. I made it through and now have slept almost 1 whole day (thankfully I'm off for a couple of days). Things at work have settled down and we are training new people now. Now I get back to the real work. Believe it or not throught it all I only managed to gain back about 2 pounds. Thought for sure it would be more since I certainly wasn't eating right although I was trying to watch what and how much I ate. But I do remember some of my oldcomfort foods making an apppearance (potato chips and anything sweet). Any way wish me luck as I relight my spark and start again.
