A change is in the air

I woke up this morning determined to put a stop to my eating. I do not need to eat to medicate my feelings. I do not need to eat for anything other than to sustain life. Yeah yeah yeah, easier said than done. But I just had a week of eating whatever my mood struck me to eat....and I don't need to do it again. Surprisingly, my weight is only up by a pound or two. That's a pound or two too many, but it could have been a whole lot worse!

Read a post this morning....the last paragraph really hit home to me. I am trying so hard to get back on track with my eating. This is no easy task as I have built up bad habits AGAIN that compromise my journey. But all in the same, this is still part of my journey. I am not afraid of these bad habits, I know how the change them, but it is not easy for sure. So to that I also say I am all done. Done doing that stuff. Done not treating myself kindly. Done with unhealthy living. I say yes today to treating myself with love and respect and health

I could have written that last paragraph! It pretty much sums it up!

It is so much easier said than done!! I wish I were a magician and I could simply say.."Abra Kadabra...you will never want to overeat again..." Poof...cured. I wish!!

Hang in there girl...

I read your blog and realize that I am in good company. I am not alone.

I wish it were magic instead of hard work and commitment...grrr...

You're doing great!

I am having some similar feelings... it wasn't a whole week but I definitely went overboard and binged this weekend due to stress : (

Only a pound or two is really good!

I agree with the writer that living healthily is treating yourself with love and respect.
