I am feeling overwhelmed this morning. I think I need to chomp on some anti anxiety medication rather than the sugary, high carb goodies I've been ingesting since January ... thus the 30 pounds reference in my blog post title. I have a bit in common with the late Elizabeth Taylor. Not her beauty, of course, but we shared a love of jewelry & a love of eating. We also shared the half curse/half blessing of being able to gain weight quickly but lose it quickly as well. Last year I lost 70 pounds. Since January I've gained back 30. You would think that I would've wised up 10 or 20 pounds ago & got back on my healthy eating track but no, I kept/keep shoveling it in. I think it's the stress of the house selling stuff with a little bit of craving comfort foods in the winter months & just a basic "I don't care" attitude although I do care ... so what gives? It's also a bit of ARGH because after losing 70 pounds you would think I'd be a mere shadow of the person I used to be but no, I only went down one dress size. One! What's up with that? My face looked thinner & I could wear my watch & rings again but one stinkin' dress size?
I've noticed for quite some time now when commenting on blog posts that I really need to change my profile photo. That Christmas candle is getting a bit old. I've considered replacing it with this.
