I caught the end of Dr. Oz. today. It was about weightloss and stress and I thought I that would be perfect for me to hear. Well, it sounds like stress itself can cause weight gain by raising cortisol levels. Not because you're moving less or eating more, just simply from stress. Well $#%@! I've got some stress right now. I don't know how to deal with the stress & unfortunately Dr. Oz didn't help me much. I don't usually have much stress in my life so I'm pretty unprepared. Maybe that explains why my scale hasn't seemed to have gone down any the last week despite still doing what I'm supposed to be doing. It actually appears to have gone back up a pound. It's either that or I've already hit a plateau. Is that even possible this early in the game?

Then tonight I get a little bit more bad news. It seems some individual is trying to make my family even more miserable than we already are right now. While I know they're actually out to hurt my brother, they're hurting us all. I'm livid! So rather than finding this person & punching them in the face (figuratively) I'm whining here. I just can't remember being so mad.

Well I had a busy day & didn't manage to get in my exercise yet. So I think my best option tonight is the PM Yoga. Hopefully that will even help relieve some of my stress. Maybe tomorrow I'll go buy a punching bag... NARF!

    Bummer some other jerk is getting into your business. Perhaps you can walk/run your stress off? I hope this stress goes away soon.

    I caught that episode too. I don't trust supliments so I'm not going to get whatever he recommended but the meditation sounds like it could help. At least it will get your blood pressure down for a while. Anyway, happy Tuesday to ya!

    I have heard that stress thing causing weight gain too. I think the best way to manage stress is to find something that you find soothing other than eating. Like writing, reading, music ..or maybe just finding somebody to talk to. =)
    I know its easier said then done, because Im finding trouble managing my stress as well. But at first if you dont succeed..try and try again. emoticon
