Stress Weight Loss

Image via Wikipedia
I was leafing through an old calendar this morning and realized something important. A year ago, I weighed 15 lbs more than I do right now. I haven't done anything significant in the past year that may affect the weight loss other than one thing: I reduced my stress. I had a major stressor in my life, something that irritated and pricked at me daily. Now it's gone and I feel happier on a soul-deep level. I didn't realize at the time how much the stress was affecting my weight or my waist size, which was 2.5 inches larger. None of the other measurements changed significantly. This has prompted me to evaluate my surroundings, what I have chosen to do with my life, and how it has affected me physically. Are there other stressors I can work to resolve? How can I find ways to better handle my stress? These are questions I will ponder in the next month.
