I am going to come clean and admit to a past of compulsive overeating and binge eating disorder. I have noticed in the last few weeks that my binging is back. I had stopped for years, but now it's back and I am up 2 more lb. to 155 lb. today.
What do I do?

I'm feeling good on my day 1. I am not starting over, just starting!
I had my first day of nursing clinicals, which was pretty intense, but overall great! I met the lady I am going to be working with and she seems like she needs more care, but will be a great lady to work with.
I have eaten great today, packing a healthy lunch to take with me. I ate it, and still feel pretty good and full. I am going to make a healthy dinner of sorts, and things are going well! For the first time, I feel like I can do this!

I am starting fresh every day. I feel really motivated today to succeed at this weight loss battle. And it is a battle! Weight has been winning, but I am feeling the beginnings of a comeback!
Today, I planned out all the food I am going to eat for the day. I have, thus far, stuck to my plan. Nursing school is a stressor, work is a stressor, but I have a great husband who supports me and a good family network for support. I can do this.
I will be an RN and I WILL reach my goal weight!
My new goal weight: 120 lb. That's right, I am aiming high, but with only 33 pounds to lose, I KNOW I can do it. Some people have lost hundreds. I only have to lose 33. I should consider myself very lucky and do this right now.
I am only going to be this young once, and I better make the most of my metabolism before it gets slow. Plus, I want to have a healthy body to get pregnant and have a baby with. Not for a couple of years, but still. I have a time limit here.
The best outcomes are those with specific goals and specific time frames.
Whitney will... lose this 33 lb. by next year.
Whitney will... lose 10 lb. by October 31st.
Whitney will... stay within the calorie ranges for the next two weeks without splurging due to doing so well.
Whitney will... aim to get more active in the next two weeks, walking at least 90 min per week.
Sounds good, no?

I am already tired of this failure of a challenge. I ate pizza last night. I wanted it, and I ate it. I haven't weighed in yet. I am going to do that in a minute. I just wanted to decompress. I am starting over today, like officially. I want a clean slate. I am going to do a mini-fast break for myself and keep my challenges to weekly. Every week a new challenge, so that way if I make a misstep, I will know that I didn't blow a whole 3 month challenge.
Week 1 - Stay within Calorie Ranges
Week 2 - Exercise at least 90 minutes this week
I think these mini goals will suit me a lot better. Staying within my calories, exercising, and everything else, all at once, is just too much to handle. I am overhauling my diet and exercise, 1 week at a time, 1 thing at a time.
5 Things I Am Grateful For
1. The beautiful fall weather is starting!
2. I am healthy, overall
3. I have a nice husband who loves me no matter how large I am, and I sort of believe him
4. I have really great parents who support me in all that I do
5. My mom really helps me get through hard times, and I can lean on her during these challenges as a support system to be successful
On a positive note, I weighed in and I am the same 153.0 as I was last week. So, no loss no gain. Well, I gained my losses, but still. I'll take it.
