I know that my weight represents how I am looking after myself and how I feel about myself. It possibly could be called carers fatigue.
So when my weight (I guessed what it was because I could not fit the largest clothes in my cupboard) hit an all time high, and after some months of denial, I did something very proactive about it. I went back to Weight watches and stood on the scales. Oh my gosh.
Anyway that does bring me back to me wonder why it is some people are stress eaters. Maybe it is all tied back to the whole comfort eating thing. Or perhaps it is just plain not eating a balanced diet. Then of course there is the whole thing about exercise.....or lack of it as in my case. For me it is sure all of the above.
I am at the stage of trying to keep my self exactly where I am. I am happy with how fit I am, how I feel about myself and that I can participate in life without being constantly tired. In the next month I plan on keeping life at this point of equilibrium even as the school year kicks in and the out of school activities all start up.
