emotional eating alert

Ok, let me lay it out there. Yes, I worked outside and did TONS of manual labor this week with our scads of snow. But, my eating wasn't the greatest. I was doing ok...but then it just went to pot and righ tnow I don't give a darn!

I know a lot of it has to do with some stress that I'm under. Without saying too much, today I made a decision and did something that hopefully turns out to be totally un-needed but very well could be the first step to a very long difficult journey. I'm not handling the stress well. I came home and immediately got in the fridge and ate something. Todd and I went out to dinner and I ate. I came home and I topped it all off with two muffins. So not good and while I'm sick at heart for doing it to myself....right now I just can't make myself care.

Who or what are you angry at? I dont need an answer, but you do. Nine times out of ten,its never anyone else, it is us we are angry at, although not exclusively...Having decided what or who you are angry at, go beat some nails into a piece of wood, go and beat something else, instead of beating yourself.

You can do this Friend! Don't give up. You had a ba past few days. You can turn it around.

Sorry about your stress. I hope that the journey, if you have to take it, is going to be worth it.

I hope you don't mind me stopping by to comment. I just recently started my own weight loss journey and have been blog hopping around tonight to try to read other people's stories- it has been quite motivating. I noticed your before and after pictures and just have to say wow! You look awesome!

I know exactly what you mean about eating under stress. This has been my biggest fall back in the past. I am bound and determined to stay focused this time though. I have learned through Georgene Collins' latest book, "Obesity Free Forever: Losing Weight from the Inside Out" some great tips to help me do this... the toughest part is just staying focused.

I completely understand that some days you just don't give a damn...I get that for sure...TRUST ME!!!!

Hang in there and hopefully things will get better. Just be careful though. I emotionally ate myself back up to my start weight (and then some) when I was at goal years ago and i SOOOOO regret it! Now I'm struggling to lose the damn fat again. Trust me again when I say YOU DON'T WANT THAT!
