I’ve been on a “stress diet” the last four months. I really don’t recommend it to anyone. Not at all, because what I’ve been going through stress wise is highly unpleasant, but there’s been one benefit that I don’t mind. I’ve managed to lose weight because of the stress that I’ve been under. Actually I’ve probably lost too much weight because of the stress that I’ve been under.
I’ve lost something like 35 pounds. I don’t even know anymore how much weight I’ve lost. I stopped weighing myself about a month ago when I’d lost about 30 pounds. My pants and tops have gotten a bit loser in that time but not dramatically so, so I don’t think I’ve lost anymore than an additional five pounds or so. Hopefully not more than that.
My hair dresser when I saw her last week could see the difference in my weight before I even took off my heavy winter coat .. so I guess it’s a fairly dramatic weight loss. However you’d never know it at home … my oblivious husband hasn’t said a word. I actually had to point out how much I’d lost … of course he’s lost quite a bit as well .. needless to say the stress that I’m going through has to do with my marriage. Sigh.
My hairdresser warned me not to lose anymore weight … but at the same time she was trying to learn how she can lose some weight of her own. LOL .. she kept asking me things about weight lose products like how does 7-dfbx work? and so on … maybe because I’m a nurse she thought I’d know about weight lose products too?
Anyway … since I have so much stress in my life and since my life is going through so many changes she decided to cheer me up and she offered to give me free highlights so I accepted her offer. So I went home that evening with blondish highlights in my short auburn hair and it looked great. Still does!
