An Emotional Eater

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Today I realized what a big emotional eater I am. I am only allowed to eat fruits and veggies, healthy foods and I got upset. My first impulse was I will get over it but I want to eat the biggest hamburger around. WOW! I didnt realize how big of an emotional eater I was but it makes sense why I have the weight I do and why I keep gaining and losing my weight.


Eating Macronutrients

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

So I have just started reading a lot about fruits and veggies online...I am about to do a two month daniel fast just eating fruits and veggies!
I am going to drink my protein so no worries!
You might call me crazy but I am going to learn so much about the dependence of food :)


Since Basic Training

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

So basic training was....tough
I was very stressed and I would eat ALOT! Thank God that I only gained 5 pounds from that time. However, I kept eating like I did after basic trained ended and I ended up gaining 10 more pounds. I need help. I miss my old body. I miss feeling skinny. I miss feeling like a runner. I miss relying on God. I miss looking drop dead sexy in jeans. Usually I am encouraging on this. But, usually I LOSE WEIGHT not gain it.

    Congrats! I hear you, Basic and Tech were stressful for me too...I was the Red Rope, it was the height of crappiness. I was terrified of putting on weight in Tech like so many people did, so I stayed away from the Pizza Hut and hit the gym every day, even if it was just to do some quick cardio and sit in the sauna. At Tech all I had to worry about was what was going on there, at home it's a lot harder. It's all about what makes you feel good! I biked in to work today, it's all baby steps!

Encouragement to get Strong

Thursday, May 27, 2010

I love the way my stomach looks, and my legs...but my favorite new part is my arms. I love the way muscles look and I never thought I would be muscular in my life.

For someone that literally got beat up at a party in middle school and did not hit one punch back I feel INCREDIBLE!
If I am ever attacked again I know that I will be able to defend myself.

I highly encourage anyone that is thinking about lifting weights to start doing so, because once you start and see some change you will want to KEEP GOING.

Weight Loss Begins with the Mind-My Journey

Saturday, May 22, 2010

I believe overeating is a mind issue...
Let me explain...
When I was younger I wanted to eat whenever I wanted, however I wanted and thought I would not gain weight. I told myself I would rather be fat and HAPPY then worry about my weight or eat healthy. If you noticed I linked eating whatever I wanted to happiness. How many of us have fallen into this trap? If we have a bad day we would rather reward ourselves with a nice piece of chocolate cake then a movie.
However, all those years added up. I spent my time not taking care of myself and gained weight and became overweight. If I kept going and did not change my lifestyle and my thinking I could have ended up fatter then I was.
Eating healthy is important. Not just eating whatever I want whenever I want it but eating what I need. I asked the Lord to help me lose weight and He gave me the peace and the strength that I needed. I felt this week that the Lord kept reminding me do you want to eat this? OR DO YOU NEED THIS?
There were times that I met my calories of the day but I needed carbs after my workout to give me energy. I ate not just because I wanted to or because of an emotional decision but because my body needed it. I ate what my body wanted not what I WANTED.
Eat what your body needs. Eat healthy. You will see the results you want. First though you need to change your mind set. Do not believe the lies of I cant be healthy, I cant be thin! I cant be beautiful! I cant run a 5K!
Belief is the first step to weight loss success.
Believe that you are beautiful.
Belive that you are healthy.
Believe that you are strong!
