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.

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

Thank you for the support! I am so looking forward to spring especially with us in the middle of a few freezing weeks. Have a great weekend!

Yeah. I'm thinking something like taxes is going to have to happen or the health care system will go bankrupt.

Our school systems are moving in that direction as well.

I had the same issue with low carb....couldn't sustain it, but then that's me with everything. I can usually go a week or so without a binge.

Have a great day!

Hi Gill -

NICE! Bright pink! Now I'm truly wide awake!

I like the "pioneer" concept!!!! And your idea of 'critical mass'. Didn't I read somewhere on someone's blog that there are European countries that are taxing junk food like the U.S. taxes cigarettes...? Seems like I did. Was it yours?

I put a post-it note on my computer that says "It's just as wrong to eat junk food as it is to steal." Every time I read it my brain stops dead. Like a computer that freezes and crashes. I just can't seem to process the concept.....! Pretty funny.
