so many challenges

Saturday, June 08, 2013

so ive come to my blog to help with my emotional state of mind. having a gastric band does not make the challenge of weight loss easier. i seem to be in a state of flux, not for the good. i have actually gained weight since last year and not hiking six hours a week due to allergies. i was reading the emotional eating article, so here i am. yes i eat with my emotions, whether i am hungry or not. just a big cycle of failure. i had lost 195 lbs and was so close to goal, it kills me to be heavy again. ive decided the scale is not my friend. ahah. i dont think im alone in that decision. now with a divorce almost final, i have to get my game back on. been tracking my meals, walking (got new shoes even), and trying to eat the right things, only thing is i cant eat more than 1 cup at a time. so making the food choices count is important. there has been so many issues over the last two years. job loss, marriage issues, now divorce, being homeless, just so many things to overcome. where is that athlete that lives within, who had the strength and motivation to make it happen?? As Yoda says, "do or do not, there is no try" hmmmm.

    Well first you have overcome many obstacles in your healthy path! On a positive note you do know how to make the healthy choices you need to make, you have done them in the past. All you need to do now is take it one step, one day at a time finding your self again. Good luck as you find your old self again!

    Sounds like you're going through a difficult time! Definitely study your food log to see what you can tweak. I've been doing that because I peeked at the scale and it was not my friend! My official weigh-in is Monday so we'll see. The athlete is there, you just have to visualize it and make it a reality. Living one moment at a time and being mindful helps a lot. Stay strong! Better days will come. Good luck to you. emoticon

a recent quote i came upon:
"Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" - Dr. Terry Simpson

oh how true. this has helped me in my food choices. funny how this works.

    It just takes forever to get to how thin feels, and we can have taste immediatly.
That always tripped me up.
Delayed gratification is a skill I am learning now.
Great Quote!

    As long as I feel healthy - which includes a healthy weight - that feels good enough for me emoticon
