Just Say Ahhhhhhh!
Dealing with emotions can be scary but
and I mean NOW!
Been dieting basically forever- gain 10 loose 10, gain 25, loose 25. Last year I was doing really good not regaining the weight for about 6 months, then all of a sudden I gained back 13 pounds- I''m sure eating brownies with icecream had noting to do with it. So here, I am again, I have lost 2.5 of the pounds that I have regained. But the difference now is- I am trying something totally new, which of course is joining Sparkpeople. As I type this, my daughter is making brownies for some friends of hers that will be coming over tonight- so it looks like I will be faced with a few challenges right off the bat.
Updated January 2012: Still on that diet rollercoaster When through a series of tramatic events from July to October regarding my alcholic husband. We are now separated and in counseling. As a result, my life has been quiet a mess and I have managed to stress eat 10 pounds of weight back on. I am really looking to get back into the drivers seat of my life again. I have decided that on this day, January 8, 2012, I am taking charge of my own life.
Since January, I have dumped our marriage counselor- she was not right for me and instead found my own, which has been great. I have learned that I am codependent and how to deal with that. I am also attenting Al-Anon, and doing Pilates and Yoga again. Also went to physical therapy for my shoulder and have lost the stress weight that I gained in the fall of 2011. As of this writing I'm about 161 pounds. On May 7, 2012, I reconnected with Living Binge Free and joined the no sugar 4 week challenge. As of today, I have been binge free for 3 days, and I am posting daily.
