My New Year
Saturday, January 05, 2013
I have never thought of myself as an “Emotional” or “Stress” eater. I have always thought or my problem being just plain old eating too much or eating high calorie/low nutrient foods and not exercising. Looking back over my behavior for the last three months, I have to rethink how I use food.
On the positive, I have recognized a pattern/problem, and I am attempting to find a solution.
On the negative, I gained back the weight I lost in 2012, plus enough more to put me at my all time highest weight!
So time to re-set my ticker and work on dealing with my problems without an entire bag of Maui Style Potato Chips.
I am also going streaking.
No, not that. I want to achieve a 31 day, minimum, streak for tracking food, getting exercise, and drinking my water.
I am trying to break away from the scale. I recorded a starting weight, and I will check once a week, but I am trying to focus on non-scale indicators. Most of my clothes don’t fit. I have been wearing the same 4 outfits to work for the last three weeks, and one of the skirts I have been wearing used to be my mom’s. I took pictures of me in a pair of jeans a blouse that I can’t wear, heck I can barely get the jeans to my hips and the blouse won’t even go all the way up my arms (Short, cuffed, sleeve). I plan on taking a new picture every 2 weeks. I am hoping that a visual record will help, especially when the scale seems to stay put. I may even get brave enough to share them.
Here’s to 2013, may we all find our NSV’s to keep us going.
