I am still here... but I'm a stress eater and I'm stressed-out these days... leaving my current job, starting a new job 3 days after we return, and last-minute packing & making sure I have everything for the trip.
I have been eating badly and I FEEL it. I FEEL terrible, I am bloated, I feel like I've gained 20 pounds and my clothes are tight around my waist again. So, this morning I woke-up and weighed. I was sitting at a total of 8 pounds down (since January) so it wasn't AS BAD as it could have been. Today has been a good day - I've been going-going-going all day long. This is the first time I've sat down all day. This is my last weekend to get things done around the house until we leave!! I have FIVE days of work left - YAY!!! I realize I won't be able to lose much weight by the time we leave and I won't be "Skinny in Italy" but I do plan to eat healthier as I've realized not eating healthy makes me feel TERRIBLE.
This thread has been very informative and helpful to me. I plan to return to my NEW job and start "over" with a good, healthy lifestyle. I genuinely mean that and know I will stick to it 90% of the time... and for me, that is a long-term change I'm excited about!
Best of Luck to everyone and some of you I will see in Italy - SOON!!!
