I'm in a rough place right now and I don't understand it. Life is great! I just turned 65, got off unemployment and retired, and got all my insurance issues resolved. I and all my family are healthy, we have enough money...Life is good. But I am struggling with food again after a long period of smooth sailing. I am having cravings and this last week have given in to them. I know I am an emotional eater, but my emotions seem calm. I don't know why I am having problems. I have started to write a daily journal in hopes that I can see what is bugging me. Meanwhile, I am drinking more water, walking more, and stopped my trigger foods completely for a while at least. I don't like to deny myself any foods but I am not handling my trigger foods well right now, so I am going to stop them. I know all the things to do but sometimes it is harder than others to do them! I haven't blogged in ages so I am blogging.
I am still dealing with the same 5 pounds but I know I could easily go up more if I don't watch out and life is too good at this weight to let that happen. I am keeping my new lifestyle choices...exercise, natural foods, water, sparking but I am eating too much. I believe I have kept my 90 pound weight loss because I haven't gotten discouraged when I have slipped and have just jumped right back into eating the right way. That is what I am going to do this time. I don't need to be perfect just consistent.
