Keen to be lean

I am learning to manage my tendency to be an emotional eater, and my tendency to be 'addicted' around certain foods. I know what to do - it's just doing it that sometimes defeats me!
I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

My Goals:
1) to get to and keep my weight under 8 stone 7lbs
2) to get and keep my waist under 29"
3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years
To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

My Program:
One Year Challenge with Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme.

This is about learning how to manage a tendency to eat crazily as an emotional eater!

I want to gradually incorporate more and more raw foods back into my diet, as that way of eating made me feel SO good!

My plan is about gradualism - which is in line with Spark People's recommendations - small changes lead to big results

Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time as a support worker with adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist which involves me in lots of activities.

Hi, Gill,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your comments so much. I agree that figuring what makes us 'tick" when it comes to emotional eating is very challenging, but I am trying to do it for me anyway! Let's keep Sparking!

Thanks for the encouragement on 100 days. I just can't seem to commit the way I want to. I will have a serious talk with myself. emoticon

Hi Gill, thanks so much for the hot cocoa... I believe it was low fat, low cal from the all natural cocoa bean with added calcium! emoticon it was just the thing I needed today... we've had so much snow in the Northeast US! More coming tonight too... have you had snow by you? I always wondered what winter was like there. Gill, I'm so upset with myself tonight... really got off track the last two weeks. :( I've got to get this weight down... I can't go back to my doctor in 4 months at the same weight. He keeps threatening to put me on a bunch of medicines I don't want to take.

Thanks for the back to school supplies. We flew home last night so I'll need to get my skates on to be ready for Mon am. I'll be picking up 100 days from Day 40 and I'm looking forward to it. Have a good weekend. emoticon

Thanks Gill, for answering my binge question.....I haven't, in the past, thought that it was "that wrong" to binge, not as wrong as stealing. But in the last few days I've come to a different conclusion. I think the reason I have continued to behave with destructive behavior towards myself is because I don't think harming myself is as important a consideration as harming others. But if God lives in me, as I believe he does, if I'm created in God's image, how can I possibly justify harming myself?

Love and hugs,

Lori
