Real Life vs. Real Weight Loss

Friday, August 03, 2012

I have concluded that real life gets in my way of real weight loss because I am a stress eater. I must learn to maintain my focus on my healthy goals during life's insanities. I need to figure out how to ride stress like a breaking wave and not get tossed around in the surf. I lose & I gain--the vicious cycle. Why do I hold onto this? Where is my motivation & why does it flee like a summer breeze on a hot Southern, summer night? Is success simply the sum of may small changes--I think the changes must cut much deeper.
Nevertheless, I put myself back on track being the eternal optimist and
I refuse to give up....

    I can relate to the stress eating, or bordem eating. Its a matter of realizing it before it happens, when that hunger hits stop and think before you act. This seems to help many who suffer the same infliction. It all takes time but it gets better. Hang tough and keep pushing on.

    Real life gets in the way for a lot of us. The stresses and changes are hard to cope with. But, cope we do. We can do this! By not quitting, you ARE succeeding. emoticon
