Chocolate Chip Cookie Binge


Monday, May 21, 2012

Obviously, I was feeling out-of-sorts and unmotivated yesterday. My fiancÚ and I got into a fight while we were taking the dog for a walk last night, and I came home and baked a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies, and I ate, like, 5. I used to think that I wasn't an emotional eater, that I just really liked food, but that obviously isn't true.

The good news is that although the binge took me over my daily range, it didn't take me beyond 2000 calories, so maybe things aren't as bad as they seem. Also, after a break from 5 days of hard cardio and exercise in a row, my knee feels much better, and I still walked well over 10,000 steps.

The bad news is that my weight went up (I have to stop weighing myself everyday!) Before SP and tracking and becoming obsessed w/ dieting, I weighed myself every week. Maybe my weight was very slowly creeping up, and that's what motivated me to join, but I didn't think about food as much. Depending on my cycle, my weight fluctuated w/in a 5 lb. range. After working so hard last week, I can't tell if there was any progress, it seems to be fluctuating in the same range. So that's frustrating, it almost feels like I do better when I don't think about it, because I'm less preoccupied w/ food.

But I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet, I think I just need to come up w/ a more balanced approach.

    I am sorry that you got into a fight! It is difficult not to emotionally eat on occassion when you like food. Forgive youself and get back on the wagon, it can happen (and does) to pretty much everyone.

Also, keep in mind that it is very very true, women's weights fluctuate much much more than men's do, depending on where we are during the month!!

Try not to be too hard on yourself, you can do it!!
