Thank you nothinmuffin...I totally understand about the eating when things happen. I do the same thing and I think it will always be that way for me. I recently was going through a bit a blue phase and I actually told my husband that I felt like eating because it made me think about the sadness as much. Once I said it out loud it was like duh? No wonder I needed to lose weight. Thanks for saying what your yoga teacher said. It helps. I need to be a little easier on myself.

Hi. I go to yoga sometimes. When I don't let the voice in my head talk me out of it.
My yoga teacher says pretty often to "Let go of everything that doesn't serve you."
Hold tight to your accomplishments, and let go of anything else.
I am replying to Roscoesmom2. I am very proud and awed by your accomplishments.

Hi. I'm just getting started, again. Things happen, and I seem to handle them well, emotionally, but I eat. In my world, eating fixes everything. My husband had a heart attack. I ate. My daughter-in-law had me some grandkids but it was hard. I ate. The last little girl was small, 1lb. 1oz, and she didn't make it. I ate.
I know that troubles aren't goin' away, but I need to learn to handle life in a different way.
My health is suffering. I'm diabetic and I have celiac disease. I think I may be getting neuropathy in my hands and feet.
Getting old is one thing, being crippled and sick is another.
Now if only I can back my thoughts up with actions.
Thank you all for listening. Nothinmuffin emoticon

Oh! And those that have lost weight and are runnin' marathons and fulfilling their dreams, WAY TO GO! Hang in there and keep blogging. Maybe I will begin to believe.

That is so great with the 70 lbs gone. You are doing so great. It takes time to adjust to a new exercise but don't let that stop you. You can do it. Welcome to SparkPeople. I am glad to meet you.

Good afternoon, today I hit a big milestone and I needed to share it with people who understand how important it is. I started watching what I ate and walking on July 9 last year and over the last few months I have lost about 70 lbs, gone from a size 28 pants to currently a loose 18. I am so completely proud of this progress but I felt like I needed to challenge myself and push a little harder to meet my next phase of goals. This April I decided I needed to transition off the treadmill (where I can run about 14minute mile and try to walk/run/do interval training 6 days a week). I knew I wanted to do more and felt like I was ready but I've been very nervous to go outside and run. I've heard it's harder, more challenging, and if I'm honest I was afraid people would drive by and make rude comments. But I pushed myself, and while almost paralyzed by fear, I did it! I walked the short block to our neighborhood school and ran! I guess you could say jog but I wasn't walking! Granted I ran two laps, walked about 200 meters, ran a third lap, walked one more and then ran two more laps without stopping. Then I felt so good, I walked two more laps and pushed myself to do one more lap. It is definitely a different experience than running on a treadmill, I have sore muscles that I haven't felt in months and I can't wait for the next one. On my walk home I geared up from a combination of pride and disappointment for not being able to run the whole time without stopping. How does everyone else deal with being hard on themselves while still allowing themselves to feel like you've accomplished something? Just needing a little pat on the back I guess. Thanks for he help.
