Jozette99's Journal, 28 December 2012

Wow, exactly 4 months today that I was here the last time. Long time and even more weight - but no loss, gain.

Reflecting - it was a heck of a year. Stress level sky high. Actually just waiting for something like a heart attack. Need to do something. Need to focus on food again. That will keep my mind off other things.

I will not wait until 1 Jan because everyone does. I was a week in hibernation, off work, no one around me. After a few days of rest I am starting to get started again ;-)
Foodwise it has been an on and off the last months with the result that all my weight is back. Don't need to step onto the scale to know that I hit the 200 lbs mark again just by the way the clothes fit (or don't).
Of course I should have a starting point but to be honest, I am so embarrassed about my failure I don't want to put it in numbers. Maybe I get myself together tomorrow morning and weigh in.

As for some exercise, I started walking again. Slow, don't want to overdo it after so many moths of neglect but it felt so good. though I don't like winter too much, way to cold, it is a time where I can walk through the woods without being afraid of anything. No snakes, bears are hibernating.... :-)))) Additionally I finally bought some Nordic walking sticks. That way I feel that I can defend myself. Helps!

Stress is awful, it really cases problems with physical and emotional aspects of the body. Walking is a great exercise. When my kids were younger we had to walk to the bus stop 2 streets away and I was at my thinest weight ever. I have been doing yoga once a week. It is a easy relaxing class especially for stress reduction. It really has helped a lot. Good Luck
