I know that I haven’t blogged in a while and so I’ve probably lost at least a few followers and I have no one else to blame but myself. I guess I lost sight of what this blog was supposed to be all about. In the past, I used blogging as a coping skill when I needed to deal with stress that I couldn’t get out in any other way. I used it to replace binge eating as a way to deal with my problems. This blog in particular was how I connected with other WLS patients and others who are interested in weight loss, health and wellness and how I felt like I was giving back to others who are on their own weight loss journey. Recently, I have been under a great deal of stress with the hidden costs and struggles of home ownership and trying to deal with issues at work and planning where I want to go with my career. I am working between 50 - 60 hours a week and the stress is starting to take its toll on me. I can’t deal with passive-aggressive coworkers who use their position and knowledge base to belittle you and are actively trying to find a mistake in your work so they can bury you with it. I need to get back on track with my diet and exercise routine so that I can focus on my health and happiness. Its time to get back into “Beast Mode” because I will be dammed if I am going to let toxic people who I am forced to deal with negatively impact my health.
Oh and by the way I just gave notice at one of my jobs and I’m not regretting it for a second, it was extremely liberating.
So if anyone out there is still listening or even cares. Thanks…
I’m doing pretty awesome. I haven’t been posting much because I’m in the process of moving into my new house and its been really chaotic trying to get all of the construction done and trying to stay on schedule. But more importantly, how have you been doing?
Ok so to anyone who is still reading my blog, I haven’t completely fallen off of the grid. I just bought a new house and so me and my girlfriend are trying to remodel it. Between the remodeling and working like 6 days a week to afford the remodel I have had little time to blog. My eating and exercise habits haven’t been the best if I am to be honest but I am trying to get back on track (as I am eating a piece of pizza). My weight has stayed about the same for now (+/- 5 lbs.) but I know it won’t stay that way if I can’t get back on track. I am hoping to be moved into the new place within the next 4 - 6 weeks and then things will finally slow down a bit. If anyone out there cares please send me some positive vibes or messages of motivation to get me back on track.
