Well sometime has gone since I last blogged about my journey and while I had some hick up mid June it was nothing I couldnít recoup from but it stalled my weight loss. I managed to get back into some bad habits but I know the culprit that sent me back to my old ways. Emotional eating is my culprit -- financial & work stressors will do me in. I have no control over it and I finally decided to let things go because ironically things are falling into place and no matter how much I stress things happen, I just have to let it go and make good sound decisions whether painful or not but then that gives me back the control in order to make it better in the end. So small sacrifices made will bring success in all aspects of my life. I know my husband will find a job eventually and so far God has not failed me because I found something on the side to help supplement our incomeÖ so my last 3 weeks of fighting with myself emotional eating has been a waste of time. Again, I am learning to say what the heck and let things fall as they must it will work out always. Any hoot, I was feeling fat and ugly yesterday afternoon, I had gotten home from camping this past weekend, it was a happy time, my good friend got married on the beach. I thought I had eaten badly but really after journaling last night and this morning I found I really hadnít done that bad plus all of the little walking back and forth to the beach to help put chairs out and watching little kids on the beach, walking to and from the potty house, small walks to the light house we visited and packing and unpacking the camping gear must have worked because I lost 4 pounds. I got on the scale 4 times, the last time I asked my husband to read the numbersÖ This was good because I was feeling bad yesterday and it motivates me to get back on real track, weighing my foods and going back to planning my menus and sticking to them. I am grateful to my TOPS Pals who kicked my butt when I asked them to. Iím taking the motivation and running with it!!! I have lots to go but small steps is how I like it. Want to break to 280ís by 7/27 weigh in and then I will have another 10# to make my other goal to labor day of leaving the 270ís. I can get it done I have lost a grand total of 34.9 since I began and a total of 25# in the past 11 weeks! I have been motivated in the past but this time Iím not stopping I havenít been this low in 3 years, I was going the wrong way, no more! Iím sliding to the left not to the right of the scale!!! Okay as my favorite song says: THIS IS MY MOMENT!!
