Already a 14 pound gain and the holidays are not over with. Not good. I have had so much going on - with losing my job back in August- finding a job car breaking down twice- still don't have a car being evicted- and going back and forth b/t my moms and my bros house with my daughter- as well as the new love of my life- [my jeff- we started dating Nov. 7th] whom cooks amazingly -but not atkins approved! LOL So i have fallen off the wagon- but new years -new start- for evrything i pray! i am going to get myself back on track- i need to do something! old demons starting to rear their head -and self doubt and low self esteem creeping back in- not a good feeling- but through it all i still feel blessed and happy to have family and loved ones who do care about me. Starting to SPARK again. xoxo

    I understand that you are anxious about several life changes. I know they are stressful. You are going to get through them and God knows when and how. This is the typical darkness before the light.
    Once I lost a job, a boyfriend, my dad and grandfather, and then I punctured my rented freezer, and had an abscessed tooth all at the same time. I don't think I over ate (because I was broke) and had my daughter to care for. Whew, I don't know how we survived on our own but we did. You are blessed to have some family support. Good job getting mentally back on track.

    emoticon emoticon You are dealing with so much right now. DO not beat yourself up for your weight. MAybe atkins is not the best plan foryou. I found that learning to eat healthy all the time works better than any "diet" - but we each have to find what works for us and what we can handle. The holidays are not about the food - but about LOVE. ENjoy your family. Trust in the Lord. He will see you through.

    I've always believed that love makes you gain weight! If you lost before, you can do it again! Keep on sparking.

    Oops, someone who cooks amazingly. Sounds like a job for that problem to really do -- portion control! Portion control sounds good, but when things taste delicious is hard to enforce on yourself!!!

    May God bless you!!!
