Knitting, or something else creative, when I get a chance. Harder now that I have kids. So I'm usually "that Mom" who goes nuts with the birthday party decorations, Valentine's cards, etc. But it's totally just a stress relief thing for me, not trying to be super-Mom (I'm definitely not that!).



Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

do some coloring in an adult coloring book. I would really really love some artist quality color pencils but they are sooo pricey and I don't think I can sell any of my artwork!

I'm struggling with this lately because I hurt my back and can't exercise. I've been eating way too much to deal with stress. I also play games on my computer, read, listen to music and watch TV and movies.

It might seem a little bit odd but I usually work to relieve my stress. When I am focused on something my emotions tend to disappear and after my work I am calm and fresh. Maybe it has something to do with the type of my job, since I work as a creattor of pr animation videos like this topexplainers.com/pr-video/ and the process is quite rigorous so maybe all my focus and steadiness comes from it, I dunno for sure

Daily stress? I would work on eliminating the source of that stress.

the random occasional stress... walk, exercise, talk it out with friends, vent to husband :)
