So.... Last year, I was down about 15 pounds when I found out a family member had been seriously assaulted. We had to go through police investigations and get the individual therapy. I ended up taking the person on a trip at the end of the investigation in order to "get away" and forget the trauma for a time. --I also gained back all of the 15 pounds back!!

Today, I am determined to not have that happen!! And so... When I got stressed out today, I ended up weed whacking for 4 to 5 hours!! I ate properly and did the yard work with my 15 year old son doing the mowing, also.

I prayed and prayed and prayed as I kept doing the weed whacking!! I am going to totally keep working out my stress! That is my plan.

I know if I keep eating right and keep experiencing all the stressors in my life, I will feel the stress more and more and more. And so........ I am going to work out and work through my stress!!

Thank you so much for your encouragement!! I definitely need encouragement these days!!

PLUS ---- I LOST 2 pounds!!!!

Thanks for listening!

    So sorry about all the stress in your life. But, so glad you are eating better and taking care of yourself. Stress is so hard on the body, counteracting it with good food and exercise will help your body through it much easier.
