Closing on 7 years of maintaining

Thursday, August 29, 2019

I continue to keep track of my calories and figure out ways to fit in the fitness. Though almost no one who I interact with these days remembers me when I was obese.

I'm a bit over my scream weight, in the overweight but not obese zone. But I'm still fighting the fight and not turning to food as a drug.

I have a super lot going on, such as being separated from my husband, which is only my 3rd worst stressor right now. And, of course, it wouldn't be happening if it weren't also an un-stressor, you know.

Well, Hi folks of Sparkpeople land!

    Good to hear from you. Congratulations on 7 years! I put it back on after 3 years, not aided by sciatica which prevented me doing anything but walking for a couple of years, and loose dogs, which limited the distance I chose to walk, having been ripped up by a neighbour’s Alsatian.....

    Good job keeping the weight off; that is it's own struggle. I have also had too much stress, both from divorce & high pressure job. I'm retired & moving far away so more stress w/ packing & decluttering; but healthy food options. We can do this! 🐨
