Stress and weight loss

For several months, I've been concerned about a relationship, and very stressed out about it.  For over nine months - my weight loss has been stalled, I haven't been able to stick to the protocol, and I've been very stressed out.

Lo and behold, he comes back into my life with a commitment to make it work this time - and I've lost 7 pounds this week. 


Current weight: 150.4, goal weight 125, waist measurement 27.8 inches.

Making progress....

You know, it's interesting.  I've been stalled for months.  Cheating, emotional eating, just having trouble.  See, there's this man that I am crazy about, who hasn't talked to me in...months. 

He contacted me on Saturday, and I immediately dropped 5 pounds. Really.  Sunday morning I was down 5 pounds.

The point of the story?  Sometimes the energy just has to be right.  Stress has a huge impact on how and whether we hold onto body fat.  Anytime we can reduce stress, it will change the way we metabolize.

Now -- I've got to head to bed, because sleep is a huge factor as well....

I've been stuck at 155 for a week now.  Even after an apple day, it's not moving.  I dropped two pounds and gained it right back.  I'm wondering what to do to shift the weight a bit faster. 

Boot camp started back up today after a week off, so maybe the exercise will help move things along. 

I am so frustrated!  Argh.

And this time I can't say that it's because of a cheat.  I've been following the protocol perfectly!
