Killing time and not getting anywhere. Sunday Jan 13th 2013

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I have been stressed and anxious about a lot of things in my life right now, and am handling these all in the wrong way. I have been eating my way through these issues instead of dealing with the actual issues head on…

I have worked very hard to lose weight. I have lost around 50 pounds . I have done it the right way. I ate healthier and did my treadmill faithfully .. But the last couple of years a few very stressful issues have cross my path with my life journey.. Things that will always be here now. I need to start hard to focus on handling these issues in a better, healthier way…I know this will not be easy.

My first goal is going to be dig out my Judith Beck Book and start retraining my brain to work on handling stressful issues in a healthy way… I know it will not be easy, but I AM WORTH it..It was her book on retraining how we handle things that got the 50 pounds off in the first place…. SO I know the process works for me. I JUST NEED TO DO THE WORK… Not just say I will but DO IT…

So today for me is week 1 of getting seriously back on track, not just saying a want to get back on track, but actually doing the work to really do it…. I have been creeping up the scale little by little so I will be creeping back down the scale and loving myself for doing it…

I know myself, morning I talk big, but late afternoon, I start to fall of my path. Take it day by day, or even hour by hour at the beginning helps me build a foundation for a good healthy week. SO here I go.. I know I can, and I know I am worth it…. emoticon

    Maintaining is all about catching that upward creep and reversing it right away. We all have major stresses in life (I've had a very tough few years) but with a plan you can come out on the other side with at least the scale being where you want it to be.

    Kay and Jeanne,

    Thank you for your kind words. I focused on one or two hours at a time today… I had a great first day eating and did get my treadmill done too…. I cleaned up my desk, got out my Judith Beck book. Also got out the 3x5 cards to write some new thoughts to get me through the ruff times. Also will be back some new positive thoughts to have them start to run through my head before the sad thoughts start…. Thanks agin for popping in with your kind words.

    Various emotions that occur in our life do affect our eating habits.
    Starting over is not uncommon. We have all done it.

    You have the support of me and the rest of our team.
    We have all been there.
