It isn't that bad
Monday, October 03, 2011
The scale. I continue to hate that thing. I went further up to189 before it went down again to 186. OMFG! WTF? and all the other expletives that go with it are all there in abundance. I am watching what I eat and exercising gosh-darn it and doing my best to get good sleep and it continues to put on weight. No I have not had takeout in two weeks. That was one burger and it did not hurt at all. I am eating well at home and doing things right. I am dealing with some pretty freakish edema. My wedding band has been stuck for a while. My kids have all gotten ill and I am stressed. Water weight is the hardest thing to deal with. So is stress. I guess I am a bit of a mess right now and I need to stop and count the good things going on and quit this pity party. Yes I am a bit upset that the stress is causing me to hold onto the weight. Now if the other things causing the edema would resolve so I can drop the water weight I would be most appreciative and happy.
Counting all the things I can be happy for.
1. I have a nice place to live.
2. I learned how to can pears.
3.I am doing well at school.
4. My dh has a job.
5.I can exercise for up to an hour and not fall on my butt.
6. I'm stronger physically than I used to be.
7. This is just water weight I just have to wait the weight out.
Things really are not that bad.
