Things don't always go as planned ~

Monday, December 31, 2012

~ and that is why I haven't posted for awhile. I just couldn't decide what to say. How to explain why I haven't been 100% on track lately.

Someone close to me, who didn't mean to, and didn't know they did ~ really hurt my feelings on Christmas day. I acted like nothing happened and eventually got over it but it affected me pretty bad. So, even though I don't consider myself an emotional eater, I finally found 'the one' emotion that will cause me not to eat properly, not track, eat things I shouldn't, to sum it up ~ to just not care. So, things have not been great with my program for the last few days.

I am pretty much back on track today and will do even better tomorrow. I'm pretty upset with myself for letting this happen, although I do understand why it happened so I'm trying to cut myself some slack. The bottom line is ~ it happened, now let's get back on track and forget it. There is nothing I can do about it now except move on. So, that is what I will be doing. It may take a few days to undo anything bad that might have happened ~ so I'm not weighing for a few days. I will be following my food plan and exercising, however. And straighten out my thinking and get my positive attitude back. These things happen and we (I) have to learn how to go with the flow and not let it destroy me.

    Emotional eating is just so.... emotional. Gosh, I wish there was a magic pill that could take away those feelings sometimes. Well, I suppose they have them, but we probably wouldn't want to take them.

I have not been on track the past couple of weeks either, so it will be good to get back into a regular routine.

Hope you have an awesome New Year. Joann

    So sorry that this happened to you. Glad you're back on track. You should be proud that you recognized that you were eating out of emotion and that you stopped yourself when you did.

    Glad you are back! I understand what you have been going through because I've been there, so vent away safely in this team. Also, living well is the best revenge!

    Welcome back and keep in mind that what others say and do are not what makes something true. If someone hurt your feelings - it is THEIR problem and NOT a reflection of YOU. You can get your positive attitude back - sometimes those closest to us don't realize how hurtful their words can be - especially the ones said in that half-joking manner so, like how can you be mad at me, I was JUST JOKING - NOT!
