If you are feeling on edge, irritable, moody, perhaps like you're going crazy, and having menopausal symptoms, talk to your doctor. Estrogen is stored in fat. Sooooo, as your fat melts away, your estrogen hitches a ride with it and you end up shortchanged! I didn't know that! At least I know I'm not really crazzzzzy!!!!!!
So often we spend much of our time and energy doing for others. We need to remember to always take time for ourselves. If we don't, we'll run out of gas. It doesn't have to be hours. A soak in the tub or a short walk often gives us time to refuel our own tanks!
Don't do this alone! Create a good support system. These are the people you toot your horn to when you've done well. These are the people who pick you up when you're down. Without these special people, our journey would be very difficult.
Weigh and post your ticker with consistency, even if it shows a gain. Remember, its only numbers, but that's when we need support and encouragement more than ever. How can we get support if others don't know we need it? Let's all support each other always.
You have no control over negative words and actions of others. Your only control is how you respond to it. Don't let someone else pull you down. Keep your head high and a smile on your face. As we say in the South "well bless her little heart."
