If it's any comfort to anyone starting over / picking up where they left off, I've stopped weighing completely the past few weeks. I had a scholarship application to prepare and a ton of school work. I'm mega stressed these days. And then it was Canadian Thanksgiving so I made a big "turkey" dinner (was chicken! they never have turkey at our grocery!) with all the trimmings and was eating leftovers for a week. But I had started to feel just bone tired all the time - not sleepy, just like I had no energy for even the smallest things and all I wanted was to sit still and be left alone. Well, I know what that's a symptom of so I'm trying to get my eating back on track. Or at least closer to the track. So that my BGs will be easier to corral and keep in line!
Frankly I've kind of given up hope of losing any noticeable weight and I just want to survive the next year or so (submit master's thesis, apply for PhD programs, move to a new city, start PHD program) without any noticeable *gain*. Anxiety levels pretty high from day to day, manageable most days provided I don't think too far ahead. Kind of discouraged that I probably won't get much further with the weight loss any time soon, but I know I've got a lot to manage and should be kind to myself. I'm trying!
Sami, so sorry to hear about all the family drama. Be kind to yourself, too.
