I know I usually post something funny & stay positive on here but it's all gotten to be to much. Weight loss hasn't happened for awhile now & I'm getting discouraged. If that wasn't enough my job is getting down right stupid. I love my job & it shows, but my company couldn't care less about customer service. Sad but try they figure our clients have no other choice but to deal with us. I worked 21 hours on Saturday. I thought taking all extra shifts would not only help my wallet but give me some sort of job security. I've been called to the office twice in less then a week one the same thing! I'm being singled out. I didn't think that was the case until my co workers started pointing it out. I'm coming up one my 1 year anniversary to which there is a small bonus, my benefits have yet to happen, & my once lovely boss is down right rude to me. I can't sleep, this has caused emotional eating, & a sever depression. Wow last week I was walking on cloud 9, now I'm in my own private hell. I knew some people didn't care for me but I just never expected this kind of stuff in a professional environment. Wow just wow. I'm thinking of stopping this lifestyle for a bit because I can't keep up. No matter what I try the weight isn't going down. Lack of sleep, no lunches, & my stress level through the roof aren't helping.

    I'm sorry. Like the others idk really what 2 say other than hang in there. 1 way or the other, it WILL get better. As far as lunch, what about carrots, celery, popcorn or cheerios? And work as long as ur doing ur best hold ur head up high.

    Ty I can't do the lunch thing, I drive a city bus for the disabled. I agree with the sleep issue just afraid to try a sleep aid as I drive all day but maybe my doctor knows something. I still track my food but think I need to up it a bit. Ty so much

    I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time with both your dieting and your work life. It can get really discouraging when YOU are doing everything right and there are no results to show for it. Add no sleep or real down time when you can just relax to the mix and it makes for a really miserable time. I wish I had some magical words for you but I'm afraid I don't. I even prayed after reading your blog for God to give me the right words to say to comfort you--nothing. All I can tell you is in my experience (I've been right where you are) is if you just hang on, even if only by your fingertips, it will get better. That weight plateau will break--maybe start tracking food intake again if you've stopped to make sure you're not getting extra cals w/o realizing it, maybe bump your cals up or down a bit to "confuse" your metabolism and jump start it again, change up your exercise routine for the same reason. The sleep thing can REALLY effect your weight loss as I'm sure you know. Maybe talk to your doctor about a SHORT TERM sleep aid prescription. There are also a ton of articles here on SP dealing with insomnia, you might find something that is useful for you here. As far as work, try not to let the jerks get to you. Just know that you're doing a good job and don't let creeps around you steal your confidence. And don't skip lunch....this is your mother talking, lol!!!! Even if you have to eat at your desk.........you need nourishment, especially given the stress you're under right now. Just breathe, do your best, and let the rest go. You're gonna make it. You've done well in the past right? Just keep reminding yourself of that!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
