A Tale of Woe and Redemption
This winter, I had it rough. It was not the easiest of years due to family health issues. It took a toll. Because of that my focus on health, exercise and weight fell behind, and there was a root for all of it: stress.
Recent studies have been published labeling mental stress as one of the key motivators for weight gain, especially around the waistline! Lately, things have improved for me. My family’s health issues have been getting better, and my husband now has a better job. Overall, I’ve noticed that when I have low stress, not only am I in a better mental state, but a better physical state.
What lead to my falling off the wagon? Stress was a key factor, but also my love for carbonated drinks.
