Sunday, January 24, 2010

I have been enjoying reading blogs, books and success stories on Sparks and I know I am using so many of the positive points suggested, Yet at the same time my stressful family and work situation causes me to backslide so often. How is it some people can get it right and stick to it and I just keep sliding back a few steps.
I am an emotional eater and I have tried many things to stop the emotional eating. I know I should be better at this after all I have been struggling with my weight for many many years.
I don't give up and I keep reading and trying new things. Maybe one day my brain will get the right formula and I will overcome the stress with other ways rather than food.
Today is yet another day and so far so good.

    Georgia, i have the same problems and realise that we just have to keep going.
You are in my thoughts and we can just do our best.

I thought I was the prizewinner in emotional eating...

Anyway, just want to thank you again for introducing me to Spark and I have found it a way to get lost with fellow Sparkies and get my sanity back as I feel I am not the only one with these problems.

You can do it. Comeand join us at the Broadwater to sitand chill and enjoy Austraia Day.

    Don't beat yourself up, hon. I've "slid back" very often. I think the idea is to keep getting back to it and at some point, it will 'stick' for us. :)

    Georgia-you amaze me and are one of my friends on Sparkpeople. You are so supportive of others. I too am an emotional eater. Sometimes I use my blog to get my emotions out and it keeps me from eating. I also do a gratitude list every night which puts me in a good frame of mind. I still back slide on occassion, I think we all do. Different things help different people. I know you go on walks does that help? I actually had a boss at one point who would notice when I was getting stress and tell me to go walk, I walked the stairs. It is a definite stress reliever. At least for me.

Two weeks in and so far so good. Have tripped up a few times but nothing that can't be fixed.
Have been sticking to my resolutions about 95% of the time. Now that in itself is an achievement for me.
Have set myself a small target for end of march and sending myself constant reminders to stay on track.
So the journey continues and we shall see what the next few weeks will bring.

As another year comes to a close I sit back and look at what I have achieved and learned throughout the last 12 months.
I have learnt how to change my thinking in regards to family and their attitudes.
I have learnt more patience and tolerance.
I have learnt to pick myself back up after many falls adn to keep going.
I have learnt that some people lose weight faster than me as they are different to me. Accepting the difference is my lesson at the moment.
I have learnt that my friends on Sparks keep me going and also let me keep them going.
2010 is going to be better and more successful than 2009 and that is how it should be.
Happy New Year to us all.

    I like your blog, it is hard to believe the year is almost over. It is nice to look back and see how far you have come and figure out where you are headed.

Much success on your journey!

Although work and personal issues have been resolved I am still having issues staying on track.
I know you are all going to say it is the season and yes you are right I am being moderate in my choices but I guess I am annoyed at myself for not being able to do better.
Exercise has gone right out the door due to having so much work at this time of the year.(plus the excessive heat is not helping either)
Here's to the next week going fast.

Have made some progress this week with planning and sticking to the plan.
Just need to focus and it can happen. It is so hard sometimes though. Have included some treats into the plan so I do not feel deprived.
The challenges will begin hitting next week with all the Christmas functions about to begin.
Maintaining a sensible eating plan over the next few weeks will be the big challenge. I hope my determination does not waver.

    This time of year is tough. My plan is to give in and have a dessert or a higher calorie meal no more than once a week if I'm at a holiday event. I would love to try everything but am trying to keep my eye on the prize.
The fact that you are thinking about the challenges is positive thing. You can do it.
