I can't figure if this is caregiver stress from a bad case of insomnia and eatting ice cream late at night, family concerns or even just part of getting older (I am 63)---maybe all of it. I am usually about 120-125 lbs. I finally had to just go and get some new clothes as I couldn't fit in my regular wardrobe. This is totally new for me. My health even seems to be taking a toll, with newly diagnosed arthritis in my feet ....very painful to even walk. Any insight, ideas? cadams
seem to digest food very well when angry and it just sits like a rock in
my belly...... especially when family in town!!! May have to limit time
with family even further.........
For new clothes, I did find some simple, inexpensive and pretty day dresses at Target, Walmart and even Walgreens! I also like the new style of slacks at Kohls that are billowy and with large pockets. I find these super-comfortable and pretty and not so aware of the weight gain. I'm just passing this along to you all so you can shine as the beautiful devoted caregivers you are!
Bethy, I'm praying for you, and I hope you are ok. You can call call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233 or go online at thehotline.org Even grandma keeping you in your bedroom qualifies as domestic abuse. There is help if you will allow people to help you.
aquatics if you have the time to get away, or good soft shoes with arch supports and a bike if walking is hurting too much!!
the culprit in todays society , imo , is spoft drinks . the fountain drinks are swimming in corn syrup , a canned coke has 28 grams suger . put 28 grams suger in a baggie , itll scare you straight . all you old freaks still have baggie scales , dont pretend otherwise ..
Gosh, when my parents were my age, they faithfully walked 2 miles every day, and did that up until their late 80's and early 90's.
I just can't take another winter and adding another 20 lbs, Must figure out something to do... I have no clothes that fit and I refuse to buy anything.
All my favorite blue jeans and shorts became history, had to try to find something new and was disappointed in what was available out there, usually come home empty handed :(
Yes, I believe it is Caregiver stress, insomnia, hot flashes for me, family concerns, and throw in that dreaded menopause. Wonder if Eve went though all this as she got older !!
I use to do yardwork and be outside whenever I could... use to burn a lot of calories. That is now history, too. I find myself parked in front of my computer or in front of the TV, just too tired to do anything. My energy level is kaput. And the chocolate truffles my Boss has on my desk isn't helping, but at times I think "who cares" and eat one or two :P
