Feb 26, 2014 Three deaths in family in past month

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I have had 3 deaths in my family in the past month plus my daughters dog of 10 years died. I have been overwhelmed, emotional and drained. not sleeping well. stomach aches from stress. headaches from stress.

Over eating...emotional eating. Going from 170 to 177 for past month. Just got back to 170 yesterday then overate last night. back to 172 this a.m.

frustrated. Will I ever get under 170? I got to 170 in early Jan. The lowest I've been in 15 years.

Got new wardrobe from one family member who died. Was wearing baggy size 18 pants and am down to 14/16. Tops from 2x to 1x. Very exciting. mixed emotions though. clothes remind me of Deb who died. I'm happy to have such nice clothes that fit and think of her. Makes me happy and cry at same time.

I keep on keeping on. I put my trust in God. Only He can help me through this...with the help of family and friends. emoticon emoticon

    I am so very sorry -- what a terrible time for you.

    Please be nice to you and don't beat yourself up over eating and weight. We all know that it fluctuates wildly in times of stress. If it helps, consider this when you're tempted to overeat: It hurts YOU to do that and you truly deserve better.

    My prayers for you and yours -- Nikki
