Does Stress make you Fat?

September 19, 2013 2 min read

It's been a while since I posted on The Daily Hiit... I've been busy wedding planning (only 22 more days!) and also apparently stressed without even knowing it! We all know that stress causes our body to pack on the fat cells, and most of us know when we're stressed.... or do we?

Recently, I've been packing on the fat and just haven't been able to figure out why. I eat right, I workout frequently, but no matter what I do, my clothes are getting tighter. Then I saw a friend of mine that I haven't seen in a while. This friend got married back in April, and I recall that in the months prior to her wedding she too had packed on a little extra weight. But when I saw her this time, she had pretty much lost all that extra weight! I commented on her weight loss and she mentioned that she hadn't even been trying, and that's when it dawned on me... I was stressed and didn't even know it!

My wedding has been fairly simple to plan. I purchased an all inclusive package at a wedding venue in Las Vegas and so pretty much most of the planning has been stress free.... or so I thought. Let's face it, a wedding is a big event. A once in a lifetime (if you pick your mate right) event! It's stressful no matter what you do! And that's when I made the decision that I wasn't going to worry about it. Worrying about my weight only adds to the stress, and apparently I've already got enough of that. I'm going to relax and enjoy the next couple of weeks leading up to my wedding. I'm still going to workout and eat right, but if I don't see any improvement in the way that my clothes are fitting, then so be it.

So, if you've been noticing that you've been putting on extra weight no matter what you do, take some time and decompress. Don't stress about your weight! You'll only be triggering your body to release more stress hormones and pack on more fat cells. Love your body for the amazing machine it is and do what you can to find the hidden stresses in your life and simply let go. We can't control everything, and not all things will be perfect all the time. Imperfection is what makes life amazing and interesting.
