I am here to admit I have been letting myself slip! I have been doing things not helping with my weight loss or maintanance. Well forget maintainance! I need to lose probably about 8 pounds before i'll be ready to go to maintanance again!
I have not been weighing daily and have been eating at night. Emotional eating. Wow that is a big problem for me! I have not been exercising at least 5 days a week. On a good note, I DID do almost a 40 minute walk/jog this week and also did 45 min. yesterday on my stepper! I am proud about that but need to do it EVERY day with the exception of maybe one day.
My body needs it. My self esteem needs it. My spirit needs it.
I am still working on my confidence. Maybe....maybe someday I will get there. I definitely know that having this extra weight does NOTHING for my confidence!
I don't feel in control anymore.....and I hate that feeling. I want to be in control of my weight!
So far today I am doing well. I have not eaten anythign except low carb and have not overeaten. It seems to be the evening time and nights that I struggle the most. Feeling sad has something to do with it I know! I get comfort from the food and I try to tell myself that is wrong and I know not to look to food for comfort........like I said. I have let myself slip!
Im going to make today a good day. I want to be in control. Not the food or my sad emotional state!
And I do have to add before I close.........I am a very positive person and do my best to always remain that way! I am very thankful for all I have and just for life in general. But at times sadness slips in there...
