I have been under a bit of stress lately. I've been trying to be pro-active and do things to diffuse it a bit. I continue to exercise every day. I've been extra mindful of what I've been eating. Honest!
I went to the doctor to discuss various physical issues that I've had lately. I had my list of questions all prepared and ready. Of course, the first thing the nurse does is weigh me. I gained three pounds. This is in addition to the two I gained at the last visit. A definite stress as I honestly don't know why this happened. The doctor said it could be my body's way of reacting to the stress changes in my life. She also took some blood work to test to see if my thyroid medicine needs adjustment.
I'm wanting answers and don't have them yet. Any suggestions on why this happened and how to get this weight back off would be greatly appreciated. It makes me feel like I'm failing myself. I had done so well for so long that it is a definite shock to me. I've had plateaus, but have never put back on more than maybe a pound here or there. It's definitely upsetting and has me worried that I will fall back into previous patterns in my life where the weight slowly creeps back up to unmanageable proportions.
