Am seeing a councellor these days. She asked me to write down feeling words as in when I want to eat something not on my plan to ask myself why I want to eat this, then pay attention to the feeling. Even if I decide to overeat at least mark it down. For 2 weeks the main feelings were worry and fear. sometimes comfort, disappointment (in self).
I am to continue on that path as well as journal all the negative things I say to myself and positives if there is any. Today I ate an icecream. Justified it but never feel good after having it. Still have pain in my lower back from arthritis as well as tired from sleep apnea alot. I will try to get the mask maybe after summer allergies again to help me if I don''t lose more weight. The positive is that I have hope I can do this. I am not happy where I am at but am inspired by sparkspeople. My goal is to get into the 80's still and try to work out starting monday even if it is 15 min. minimum a day. My food today was not bad but still need to count calories and watch portions especially at dinner. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. I hope I can keep writing in here and commit myself at least on Thursday's after weigh in. I will try to keep the journal for myself and the counceller until I see her May 6th.
