Stress is a huge trigger for me. I have been under so much stress from my job recently that it is starting to talk a huge toll on my physical and mental health. After discussing the job situation with my husband, family, and friends I have come to the conclusion of reaching a solution that is going to be a big change for me. I will upate on that later when I have secured the situation and keep everyone posted.
Otherwise, I realized through all of this that I punish myself by getting off plan to help cope with stress. That's not healthy at all. I now know my triggers, I gained 6 pounds the past two weeks and I am not getting back on the slippery slope of regaining. I woke up this morning feeling renewed about finding a resolution for the job issue, and I also feel renewed in the knowledge that my trigger is what has caused me so many problems on my weight loss journey. With the full support of my husband and our family, I am putting my health first (and his!
) and making this lifestyle change for good. It feels like Day 1 all over again, and so be it. I am doing this one day at a time.
And I am going to make dang sure I do not fall back down and stay down again along my journey!
Thanks for letting me get that off of my chest, I know y'all understand, and I feel so ready mentally to make this healhy lifestyle happen!
