This journey has been hard for me. When I joined this site with my sister, I was 220 pounds and miserable. During this time, I have let emotional stress dictate my diet.
Emotional eating is a hard habit to break. Here is the new leaf part. I followed the stress busting challenge here on sparkpeople. What I have learned is that I control what happens to me. I can not let other crap destroy me.
Lately, I have been tested by one of my two step kids. She does things that she knows stresses me out. When that happens, instead of just dealing with it head on, I ate.
Currently she is trying to start world war 3 in our household. I try not to go to my comfort of eating by doing crafts. This month alone I have made two toys, a scarf, and started exercising.
I will not let a spoiled child undo my hard work by causing me stress.
