Things have been out of control the last week or so. I haven’t been tracking my points and I’ve been doing a lot of emotional eating.
My grandma passed away on Monday night. The funeral will be this coming Monday. That has been really hard on me and has drawn me to find comfort in food. I see this as an issue and can see that even though I have come so far, I have a lot farther to go. I have not overcome those emotional eating issues.
I gained 4.4 lbs. on weigh in day. But I’m feeling better as this morning I lost 3.2, so not far from my lowest weight. I am going to count points again now. I am off of work from today until next Thursday. I already had today and tomorrow off, and my company gives 3 days funeral leave, and they expect you to take it, so I have Monday through Wednesday off. I’m sure that I’ll need the time to rest after Monday’s funeral and emotional stress.
My brothers and sister and families will be coming to stay at our house on Sunday afternoon. My Grandma (on the other side) may come to stay at our house Monday night. We’ll have to see. It will be busy to say the least.
Hubby and I are trying to get our finances in order. We sat down this morning and added up all of our debt and we feel overwhelmed. Does anyone have any finance tips?
I wasn’t going to blog for a while, but after a few days off, I realized that I need to keep up with this. This is my support system and I see how easy it would be to gain back these 40 lbs. I’m really looking forward to a new start and a new year!!!
