The Bad Way to Lose Weight-If There Is One!

For those looking for a good diet there are many out there and many of us are fighting those few pounds (or lots, in my own case!) to get back to a healthy comfortable weight.  There is one weight loss program that no one needs to consider, though.  In my last few years the basic stress in my life has doubled, or tripled and though until the past year there was no noticeable change in my life even though I seemed to eat more as the stress level grew.  But about 9 months ago for what ever reason the reverse in size and weight began happening at a rapid pace.  Add to the melting process, the fear of, “Why in the world am I losing so much?” drove the stress level up.

After consulting my doctor and having some tests done we both agreed that the loss was due to the ever present tension in my life.  As I worked to eliminate that elephant in my life one thing did not change – the weight loss.  It kept coming off.  But off course as you work on one tension, more surface so though I felt some of the stressers going others were charging forward.  As I faded down 2 full sizes and then three I began to run out of clothes to wear from my closet.  Like many who change weights I had my size layers in that small space I call my closet, and all of a sudden I had almost nothing to wear.  In fact until I level off, I am living in one pair of jeans and only a few shirts!

So what the in the next months and years are for me is a mystery, but instead of facing it with fear, I am beginning to face it with a sense of wonder.  I mean who else can lose almost 40 pounds in 6 to 9 months (Sometimes up to five pounds a month!) at the age of 62!  I am stepping into a new life at a new weight – whatever it ends up being.  I am changing my diet and amounts that I use to eat to work at keeping the weight off and taking it all one step at a time!  It’s a strange walk for me, but I am doing it!
