I feel terrible right now, and I am trying not to give up. This is my first-ever blog post, so if you see it I could use some encouragement. I joined Spark about two months ago and had been doing great - I lost ten pounds and was really happy with the changes I had made to become healthier. I was exercising more and really paying attention to what I ate to make healthy choices.
Then, last weekend, I went away for the weekend to visit and old friend, and after that have been at a conference/training all this week. I don't know what happened - it's like I flipped a switch and all of a sudden started gorging on everything unhealthy and couldn't stop. I'm a big planner so it's like I was lost without my food tracker and ability to cook, but instead of going with it and making healthy choices, I just gave up. I have been doing tons of emotional eating and shoveling in things that I don't even really want. Today I had four Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. Four. I didn't even really want them.
So I feel pretty disgusting and hopeless right about now. The good thing is that the first thing I did when I got home (the training is finally done and I got home about 30 minutes ago) was log on to Spark (which I haven't done in over a week, with being away) and write about this. So if anyone has any ideas for how to talk myself out of giving up, I sure would appreciate them. . .
