    161.4. Sigh. I won't be able to deal with this until I get home from Wyoming next week. Sigh, again.

    My body is very unhappy with my. My face is a broken out mess. Even DH commented. My body hurts. Even walking makes my legs ache. Here's what I know:
    * I'm very stressed. Work is a zoo. Wyoming means I have to face the facts that my grandparents are truly gone (yes, I know this, but I can often ignore the fact), my family is stressful, and I don't want to deal with the estate crap, taxes, etc. It also means that food quality will be tough.
    * I'm tired. Not only did I not sleep well last week, this week I had long work days followed by late nights. There was also lots of socialization, which can be challenging for an introvert
    * Too much pork. My body is really sensitive to meat quality. Doesn't seem fair, but that's the facts of my body. I can eat pork/chicken 2x or so per week, but not much more.
    * Calorie creep. I was eating about 200 calories more per day. Still, theoretically, in my losing calorie range, but I'm pretty sedentary (desk job!), and I think those made a difference.
    * Hungry. I've been hungry. I think when you're tired and you can't get sleep, the body demands more food to keep itself running (I'm probably deluding myself here, but I believe the body wants to survive and thrive, so that's how I support my theory).

    Thanks, ladies, for your support. It helps keep my from throwing up my hands and falling (back) into the bin of pork rinds! I'll probably be pretty scarce for a few days, but I'll be checking in on you by phone.

    Well, you need to know that this too shall pass, and we will support you the whole way! I am so very sorry that is all I can offer.

    I will tell you that hormonally, you do get hungrier when you have not had enough sleep. There have been studies. Make yourself a nice grass fed steak and a plate of greens before you leave.

    Remember that getting off somewhere and having a good cry is going to be much better for you than eating. Do it as often as you need to!

    I agree with going off to cry or get your head together. Sometimes family can be a bit much (this I can attest). Hang in there, we have your back chickie!!

    Where in Wyoming??

    Thanks, ladies. What good Internet friends I have! Crazy busy and cold! Snow. Yuck. Karin - Green River.

    Food quality here stinks. Lots of meals out. Mostly primal (a bit of potatoes/rice), too many calories, carbs. Not eating my through emotions, but I'm tired! Got up at 3:30 am to get work done. Like I said, just too many calories. Staying with my BFF's parents. They got me apples (lived on these when my grandparents were sick), spinach, eggs, and my fancy sparkling water. At I hop last night, I asked for broccoli instead of pancakes. His face was classic! Extra vwggies at the Thai place.

    Hope you are all well. Sorry for rambling...a bit tired!

    Breathe deep, go for a walk and give yourself a break! You are doing your best to deal and some days, the crap wins! When I get overwhelmed, I tell myself "You can do this" again and again!

    Feel free to rant and ramble! This is the perfect venue for that.

    Hang in there, I agree with MudFlinger, don't forget to get some time alone, it is essential for you!

    Sounds like your friends are taking care of you Sounds like you are eating well as well, which is a plus. However, next time have the camera phone ready to snap the shot!!

    That crisp cool air will also do wonders for clearing your head and relaxing
