August has not been my month

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I'm not eager for school to start and to return to the daily work grind, but August has been a really bad month for me (as you know if you ahve been reading my blogs). I am really hitting rock bottom and feeling awful. I am having a medical procedure Monday that has required me to take hormones all month - and for the next THREE months (nothing medically serious - as my son says, I am getting "fixed"). I really wish I could blame this unbelievable surge in eating (and weight) on that but I don't think that is completely it - although maybe coming to terms with my stage in life is part of the puzzle. I sure wish I didn't have 8 extra pounds - in one month! - to show for it.

I coudl probably going listing potential excuses, but the bottom line is that I am just a big mess and need to start over in the morning (I write this at nearly 9 pm, so hope I've done all the damage I can do for today). I re-set my SP settings to fast break and am just going back to square one.

Please pray for me, friends. I really need it.

    Hey there. I hope all went well yesterday. My friend was "fixed" when we were 28 years old. Before her procedure she gained a whole lot of weight. About a month after the procedure she started losing, felt wonderful and was good to go. You will be the same, girl!!!!! Take it easy and don't overdo it~

    Hi I am new to this group and don "t know you at all but could the weight gain be the stress of having to have the procedure? Once that is done with, you will feel much better I am sure....

    August may not be your month, but September will be...those ruts in the road just sometimes make it harder to hold on .

    Hi Liz! My prayers are with you! I've been there 6 years ago, getting "fixed". At that time, I was thrown in orbit, too. But take my word for it, in time you will feel like a million bucks! God bless.
    All the best,

    Every day is a new day and a chance for us to decide to stay on the path - to do mostly healthy things. Maybe your bottoming out is fulfilling a need. Maybe you need more support or more care- some space. What is it that you are fulfilling?

    Forgive yourself and let's finish August differently than it began. We're all here with you.

    (sorry to sound corny, but I value your presence here!)
