Disappointment & Determination

Friday, July 12, 2013

My sister, who is 5 years my junior, has high cholesterol and fatty liver, and a lot of weight to lose. Talking to my mom and my sister made me really think about where I am, and where I'm going to end up if I stay on the road I've been traveling the past year or so.

Where I don't want to be. . .that's where. I made up my mind a long time ago I wasn't going back there, and here I am heading right back where I don't want to be.

I have been dealing with my stress in very unhealthy ways. I know what to do, and I am finally ready to start doing it again. I'm heaving a big sigh and hanging my head. I have so much to learn yet about this whole lifestyle change thing. I only do great when I'm not having any problems. It's time to learn how to thrive in the midst of chaos and stress. It seems life isn't going to cooperate and give me no stress so I can get my weight under control. Fancy that?

Oh, well. . .here we go again; hopefully better this time.

    The reality is that figuring out a way to reduce the IMPACT of stress on your eating, exercise, and life in general is really helpful to creating a healthy lifestyle. Think about ways you might reduce or eliminate or even learn how to react more positively to the stress in your life. Have a great weekend. Plan something relaxing and FUN and it will make a good start for you.
