Stress and the Scale
Friday, August 12, 2011
I am not one of those people who can't eat when they are stressed - instead I can't seem to stop eating when I'm stressed. And eating the wrong things! My food choices the past few weeks have been horrible and the scale shows it. It's moving in the wrong direction
If you read my last post (or maybe it was the one before that), you saw that I got a 2nd job. Well, that is no longer the case. I was working increasing hours at that 2nd job and just couldn't deal with it anymore. It got to the point where I was working over part-time hours and was not getting home until almost 11pm at night. Not good for any family time or regular eating patterns.
During this time, I also found out I have a pre-cancerous condition that requires a topical cream where one of the side effects is pain. I am going to try to keep in my mind that I am doing this to avoid surgery.
Finally, I had a suspicious mammogram and the radiologist says I need a biopsy. I have a family history so this has always been in the back of my mind. Not looking forward to that but hoping to get it over with so I can get on with the rest of my life. Oh, and my insurance company stinks!
I have managed to keep a decent work-out schedule and have found that it helps to keep me sane but my eating is out of control. It is going to be difficult to reign this in as I feel I am using it as a way to block out emotions.
Thanks to all my SparkFriends who have prayed for me and I ask for continued prayers.
Life happens and I plan on living it for a long time!
