GET WITH IT!

As I get older I realize I have a lot more regrets than I should. My biggest one is that I did not stick with my weight loss plan. I want to lose that regret and be proud of myself again. So now I am going to GET WITH IT!


More About Me:
I would like to be more zen-like, but I do so enjoy a bit of sarcasim and a cynical sense of humor.

Borrowed this from another Sparker. What to do when faced with food temptations:

ask yourself: IS IT WORTH IT?

* Is it an occasion?
* How often do you eat this food? Can you get it any time?
* Does it look delicious and amazing?
* Do you have the calories to "spend" on it?
* Can you control how much of it you eat?

I am a returning user. I am having a lot of health problems form ignoring the weight issues I have. When ever I am upset I eat. When ever I am happy I eat. I don't know anything else. I need to learn to feel emotion without eating. I have a very low self esteem and feel that I can't do it. I know I can I just have to do it. If I keep it first in my life I know I can I just need help reminding myself to do that. It is so easy to push it to the back burner. Thanks for asking!

Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment! The pool was fun, the movie was fun, the power outage? Well, sarcasm aside, not so fun but liveable since my house didn't get miserably hot and I could go to the pool for a bit!
