Facing My Fear
Monday, January 28, 2013
For the first time this year, I finally wieghed myself. I didn't really like what I saw, but I would be lying if I said that I expected something different. Lately, I have had a lot of stress dealing with my 6 month old's health concerns and trying to make myself feel better by eating. Probably not the best thing, but it was a temporary fix. Right now, I am at 220, which is better than this time last year. (231 in Jan. 2012) Last year I got down to 202. With Thanksgiving and Christmas, food was my crutch in dealing with homesickness and my son's ailments. Right now, he isn't out of the woods yet, but a report from our doctor in Beijing was very encouraging. It is kind of ironic that my son can not gain weight, while I do quite easily.
I have taken to adding some workouts to my regular schedule in hopes of gradually losing the weight, so hopefully you can read about my successes in my next blog.
