Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress.
A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? The copy desk. So, we are getting more work shoved on us with no more pay. And obviously, it won’t count toward anything in the future, such as a raise, because there won’t be a future in this job. Morale at work is at rock bottom, because the only thing on everyone’s mind is “Am I next?”
But somehow I am managing to not stress eat. But I am stressed for another reason. I am extremely stuck on my weight loss. This is why it’s so aggravating to hear someone who is healthy and at a good weight say to someone who is overweight: “Just lose weight! Just eat less! Just exercise!” Not everyone is built the same. It’s not that easy. I am doing those things, and I can’t seem to lose anymore weight. It makes it very difficult to keep going.
I absolutely can’t stand people who make these simple statements, as if anyone can just snap their fingers and change everything about themselves. I had a boss tell a coworker who suffered from depression to “just be happy and smile more.” I mean, what?!? That’s not how depression works, you piece of crap. I’ve been told to smile more, as if that somehow makes everything OK.
But back to the weight loss. I did want to give an update on that because that was one of my main goals when I started to change myself in June. I have lost 30-plus pounds, but I have been stuck on that for about a month now. I just really want to lose some more weight, but I don’t know what else I can do. I can’t eat any less. I already only eat two meals a day — lunch and dinner — and I eat a very light lunch. I exercise every day. I don’t have time to exercise more than I do now, so I don’t know what else I can do. I guess I’ll just have to be patient and hope more weight loss comes soon.
I heard from a couple people who think I should shave my head. (I am losing my hair at an alarming rate. Read about it here.) I really want to. I’m still not sure what’s holding me back. I’ll have to see how much razors cost. Any recommendations? I’m trying not to spend a lot of money because of the impending job loss.
Until next time!
I need a razor in order to shave my head. Donate here to help me buy one.
