I eat too much. Every single day, I eat too, too much.

I crossed 29,500 fitness minutes, but I weigh more than I ever have.

Granted, these practically 30,000 minutes are over the course of almost 6 years...but still, that's a lot of freakin' fitness.

And for what? I mean, I don't want to say nothing, but I can't really name anything amazing that I ate that made all that worth it. And I am absolutely not happy with the way I look, either.

And when I think about my blogs over the last couple years, I am embarrassed by the lack of commitment, the lack of stick-to-it-tive-ness. I feel like these people on my quitting smoking website who leave and smoke for a little bit and then come back and say, "Okay! I quit!" and then are gone a few weeks later. I was one of those for a long, long time, too. Longer than I'd like to think.

I don't really know how to not be that way, I guess. I also don't want to be "that guy," who comes on here 'fesses up to the cookie s/he ate today. I want to not feel like I have to talk about the cookie. But maybe I do.

I mean, what do I do? How do I not eat so damn much?

This may not be the timeliest of blogs, given it's the day after Thanksgiving, so there's still loads of food around, but geez.

    OMG. We could so be twins. I'm the same way. I work out every fricking day but I've yet to get my calories under control consistenly.

    Fall down seven times, but get up eight.

    Hang in there. I know they smokers typically make several serious attempts to quit before they finally quit. I wonder if anyone has ever studies how many attempts it takes to change from an unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle. I am pretty sure it is even more than quitting smoking.

    Take it one day at a time! and remember you can't fix the past you can only change the future.

    I don't know what to tell you, except for - I know how it feels. And - just don't quit the fight! If you get up more times than you fell, you still win.

    No words of wisdom here, except to say, Keep at it.

    This has been a pretty big struggle for me, too. Can I tell you what helped me? Being open and honest with my husband and my parents about my addition to eating too much. I admitted to my husband that after he went to bed that I would eat, and that sometimes I had a secret stash of food so he wouldn't see how much I was eating. I have found that, as embarrassing as it is, the fact that the people that love me most KNOW I struggle with this helps hold me accountable.

    Another thing I do is when I want to eat, I picture how I will feel AFTER I eat it--the feeling of guilt, embarrassment, and frustration. Usually if I picture it clearly enough it keeps me from wanting to eat more.

    I hope some of this helps. I know how hard it is. emoticon
