Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

I'm struggling. But I'm still here.

Hi peeps!
No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth.
Thanks for asking, though. :)

I'm still around. And still round (teeheehee - fat chick humor).

But seriously, I haven't tracked a damn thing since my weigh in on Tuesday and I'm loving it.
At first, it wasn't intentional. I was just slacking. But, I realized that after missing the first 3 days of point counting, I wasn't going to catch up for the week. So, I just decided to take a break.

I'm not really eating all that badly. I'm just not tracking anything. I haven't counted a point since Tuesday. However, I have been aware of how many points I've been eating. No matter how hard I try, that information is just burned into my brain.

I know this is probably going to come back and bite me in the ass. I'm probably going to have a gain on the scale when I weigh in on Tuesday.
You wanna know something though?
I'm kinda okay with that right now.

I've been struggling with a lot of stress and emotional stuff and it's been taking a toll on me. I have enough to fret about right now without adding food fretting to the mix.

Plus, I can't even really focus on meeting my food and weight goals while I'm carrying around all this extra stress. It's distracting me from doing what I need to do to lose the pounds I want to lose.

Does that make sense to anyone?

I'm not giving up on my journey. Far from it. I'm actually just taking a little vacation in order to refocus and find my mojo again.

I'll be back on here daily starting today, but don't expect me to be counting points until after my Tuesday weigh in.

I'm struggling, but I'm going to be okay.
How about you?

  1. Don't stay gone too long! We'll miss you! :)

  2. You and me are in the same boat, it seems.

    I'm in a funk. and it's bad. I'm stressed about money and it's bleeding into all aspects of my life making me feel like a pile of crapola.
