One step forward, 3 steps back (?)

Monday, November 07, 2011

Today I took one step forward... walked by the donuts, cookies, and candy in the store without buying any. Then, this afternoon, two steps back with 2 cups of whoopie pie ice cream, and tonight at my sister's birthday dinner I took another step back with a medium slice of cake and half-a-cup of chocolate ice cream. OOPS!

Tonight in sweats I weighed myself and found I gained a few pounds. I definitely need to get back to walking, simple ST exercises (under doctor supervision), and everyday writing down what I eat and why. (I am an emotional and stress eater, when upset, I especially want to eat sweets.)

    Even one step forward is a positive thing. Just work to keep more forward than backwards steps. And sometimes, we only count the backwards ones, or we think they are "weightier."

Keep at it! We will all get there.

    Eh, we all have those days. In a few weeks from now, you won't even remember it. Just get back up and keep going. You can do it! I believe in you. I'm a recovering emotional eater too and if I can conquer that beast, so can you! emoticon

    Hang in there and don't beat yourself up to much. We all have those "back steps". Just pick yourself up and press on. You can do it. Have a safe journey and May God Bless!!
