Hello Mother nature ? You can take it back !

Now here is a kick in the head ! I have been changing the way I work out, increasing the fiber in my diet and using EFT and Quantum Touch treatments with Reiki to help my body balance out energetically . I have reason to suspect that part of the reason for my stall is related to a blocked energy meridian, and these things will help.

This mornings weigh in showed that I lost a pound, which meant something was working. Last night i started having these odd emotional sort of waves, thinking some things that are not normal for me, and feeling kind of achy in my thighs. Hmm- this is familiar. This moring while we were out shopping i discovered the reason. "Hello. It's Mother nature with your monthly visit."

SHIT ! I am 50 , and I have gone 6 months without her knocking on my door with that package. First thought was Why do I still have to deal with this nonsense, and then the realization that my weight issues have very little to do with what I eat, how much I eat, how much I do or do not move or anything else. I am held hostage by hormones, and unless I deal with the root surgically, nothign can be done about it.

I think it is time to get real. it is time to fully embrace the fact that I cannot do this for weight loss, but rather to help my body get through this transition in the most pro active way I can. If the scale moves down, great. But in the mean time, healthy eating will support my cardiovascular system, my bones, my muscles, and properly nourish all the systems as they need. The exercise will help me stay strong, clear headed and relatively stress free.

So unless I can find the office to return this package, that's my story and I am sticking to it !Q
