An update

Yes I am still here - it definitely has been a while. I feel like I havent posted in forever. The good news is, I havent fallen off the bandwagon, but my life is just so stressful and crazy right now that I have had no time to write about anything. Basically my life consists of work, sleep, and more work. My job is seriously killing me, and every day is a battle to not just get up from my desk, walk away, and never come back. I honestly dont see how any of this is worth it. Sure I need a paycheck, but this is taking years off my life. I have no time for anything personal, wedding plans, or exercise. Im averaging about 1 or 2 days a week of actually getting some exercise in. I hate that, I feel like Im going to get really out of shape. I have been on track with my eating though, so thats at least one good thing. Im just trying to eat every few hours and drink lots of water to keep me going. I have no idea what I weigh - I weighed in a few weeks ago at 159 so at least Im still under 160. Lets hope thats still the case.

So thats whats going on with me. Im still trying to read everyones blogs, and hopefully at some point this will die down, and I can focus on my weight loss and health again.

I'm sorry to hear things are so crazy for you and you haven't been able to enjoy planning your wedding. I hope things calm down soon.

I struggle every single day with the urge to walk out of my job. I hate it but can't figure out how I would survive without the paycheck. I've been actively searching for a new job for over a year but there really is nothing out there right now.

I hope we both find a better way to earn a living.

Hang in there and take care of yourself.

I have been there jobwise, but after two plus years I was able to find something great. So don't give up! Hope you are able to get some more YOU time, you deserve it and the workouts help reduce stress trust me I am addicted to my lunch hour pump time!

Hang in there, Heather. I've definitely been where you are now, and it's simply awful. While I'm a bit nervous about finding a new path now, I'm so grateful to be out of that situation. Your post reminded me of that!

Wishing you peace...and rest!

I was in a job like that. I finally DID just walk away, and it was the BEST decision of my life. (I went back to school, got a degree in a field I LOVED and never looked back).

I hope that you can find a job that makes you HAPPY. Being 40 now, I see TOO many friend who stayed in jobs they hated and spent years of precious life being miserable at work. You deserve better!
