165/365 - making progress

Sunday, June 11, 2017

The last few weeks have been very chaotic - I left my house and moved into an apartment with a roommate. I've been stressing about my cats but I do have homes for them now - temporary fosters until I can take them back. For now, I am limited in the number of pets in the apartment. My new home is simply lovely, a retreat. I love it. I am so incredibly happy to be out of the house for that I believe was making me sick. Left the bad memories and energy behind. I'm beyond happy these days. I have lost 27.4 lbs since the beginning of the year. I would never have admitted it before, but I do blame the stress for my weight gain and inability to lose. I am definitely trying, but it is coming off more painlessly than ever. Hope everyone has a good week!

    Stress most definitely causes weight gain for many of us! And yay for being in a new space, however temporary! (Although BOO to landlords who don't allow cats!!!!!!)

    I hope that you will be reunited with your cats soon, especially Bruce. It would be nice if they would make an exception for the Bruce. He is so special. You are doing fantastic and I wish this mess could all be behind you soon. It's time for you to have a complete fresh start.
