Doing This for Myself

At 5'6", I hit 185 about two years ago. I was an emotional eater and hid my snacking from everyone. I knew something had to change, and though it took me a while to make it happen, I managed to drop 15 lbs thanks to a commitment *not* to hide the snacking. In the past year, I've one-upped that, too, changing my relationship with food entirely. I still LOVE eating, and I fully acknowledge that eating makes me feel good, but I take more time to savor flavorful, healthy food, and stop before I've ...
At 5'6", I hit 185 about two years ago. I was an emotional eater and hid my snacking from everyone. I knew something had to change, and though it took me a while to make it happen, I managed to drop 15 lbs thanks to a commitment *not* to hide the snacking. In the past year, I've one-upped that, too, changing my relationship with food entirely. I still LOVE eating, and I fully acknowledge that eating makes me feel good, but I take more time to savor flavorful, healthy food, and stop before I've binged on the foods I love. Now that I have THAT down, it's time to change my relationship with my body, too. (Oct 2012)

So I got back up within spitting distance of my top weight after injury, stress, and a new job kept me down for a bit. But so far, this reboot has been great. I'm running, rowing, and having a lot of fun with my at-home circuit. I've got one 5k under my belt and have two more planned this fall. Maybe a 10k by spring, and then who knows! Whatever number I end up at, I'm determined to have FUN getting there.

Welcome to Swimming for Cardio!

Looking over your page, it looks like you're setting some achievable goals, and going through them step by step rather than all at once. Go you!

Hope to see you around the boards!
