Calm down.  A bad day doesn’t mean everything is lost. 

  • So you ate pizza and didn’t lose weight.  Start over today.  You can change what’s going to happen, but you can’t go back and uneat the pizza.  Also, denying yourself what you want all the time will lead to sabotage on your diet.  Don’t beat yourself up, especially to the point of fighting with your husband.  Just let it go, make smarter food choices today, and try to get in some extra exercise today.
  • You will sell your house, and you will find a new one.  These things take time.  Patience is key.
  • You will sleep again.  If you truly can’t sleep, see a doctor and get some temporary medication to get a solid night’s sleep.

You just need to calm down.  This is not a chain reaction thing where all of these are related and, despite what you’d like, you don’t have a crystal ball.  You just need to focus on what you can change, and let go of what you can’t.  The rest will work itself out on its own.

This too shall pass. It’s cheesy,  but it’s true.

@okqueenbee:  That’s how Tuesday goes for us too usually. Tuesday is the new Monday.

*sings* Tuuuueeesday bluuuuues”

If it’s a classic scale you could always wind it back 10 or 15 pounds for a day or two 😉 that’s always good for a pick me up.

@okqueenbee:  I can comiserate. I keep thinking I look like a cute pregnant woman, and while I do, I found a pic on my phone from May, pre-preggo, and I looked so good, so now I feel like a fat cow. I know I am pregnant for a good cause, and I wouldn’t change a thing because I love my son more, but I’d be a bold faced liar if I didn’t say it stings a little to have lost all that weight (when I was already chubby and have a hard time) and then now I can see every curve on my body turn in to a total mountain.

@okqueenbee:  This is actually a regional phenomenon lately….so don’t blame yourself or the pizza.  Something is wrong with the lunar alignment that has turned all men into braying jackasses and the earth into the MOST ANNOYING PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE.

Its normal to feel small and insignificant with the planetary alignment is so very out of whack…I bet it even threw your scale off too…so I’d totally disregard whatever the hell you saw on that thing this morning, get yourself a yummy turkey sandwich and some chicken noodle soup for lunch, read a magazine, get through the day and chalk it all up to those assholes that decided Neptune isn’t a planet anymore….they fucked us all with that concept

@okqueenbee:  PMSing? That’s how I feel when I’m PMSing… everything snowballs.

Just know that your weight and your health is in your control, but it doesn’t define you! You have the power to change your body but it isn’t the most important thing. If you can’t eat unhealthy without judging yourself hard, don’t eat unhealthy! If you need a treat every once in a while, eat your treat and DONT guilt yourself!

Feel better. I struggle with weight too and I know it’s hard. Just always try to remain empowered. If you ate pizza, remind yourself that you ate the pizza because you wanted pizza damnit and own it- don’t let yourself feel out of control and try to keep yourself out of situations where you will be out of control.

Also, sleep is ALWAYS the answer. And if you can’t sleep well, Benadryl is ALWAYS the answer.

@okqueenbee:  Sorry your day sucks so far 🙁  I’m kinda PMSing so everything is annoying me and I’m getting pissier by the minute.  I used to weigh myself every day  and that was a sure way to make me feel like crap.  I no longer have a scale and am much happier for it.  Ignorance is bliss.

@okqueenbee:  I can totally relate and I feel your pain, and as awful as it is I must say that this:

“Somehow at that exact moment the scale supernaturally morphed into a crystal ball & told me my destiny, which included but was not limited to shopping for size 16+ pants & looking like a fat cow for the remainder of my natural life.”

For some reason really made me laugh. Not AT you, but just the way your wrote it was humorous and SO TRUE to how I was feeling!

I am super insulin resistant (but don’t have diabetis…yet) and if I cheat one meal – BAM – I gain 4 lbs. Not water weight, not salt, 4 legit lbs that I have to then work very hard to get rid of again. It sucks…
