Panic Mode Yet?

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I just realized I have 65 days until we will be in Florida. Until I have to wear a swim suit. On a beach. With gorgeous & healthy people all around me.

And I am not a single pound closer to my goal.

Of course, I realize that my final goal is still out of my reach. It will take much longer than 65 days to happen, and I am completely okay with that.

What I am not okay with is how I look in my bikini at this moment. I cannot fit into my shorts from last summer. This is a problem. And I know myself well enough to know, if I end up in Florida at this weight, I will be SO SO UNBELIEVABLY upset with myself.

Knowing all this is approaching, why cannot I not STOP EATING? I swear, its all I do. It's 3 a.m. and I just ate a quesadilla. Not because I was hungry. It just sounded good. THIS is my problem, even more so then lack of exercise (I am at least semi-consistently getting that in at this time).

I am seriously about to lock my fridge & cabinets after dinner. It's bad enough that I am having sleeping issues again, after going several weeks on a relatively good schedule, but this is when my "boredom" eating kicks in.

I am seriously about to go into panic mode with all this. I know many of you are thinking "Don't beat yourself up" "You have time" "Its all about making changes". I know all of this. But, my mind isn't grasping it!!! The cycle of disappointment is exhausting.

Do any of you have any suggestions as to what I can do to stop this vicious cycle? I am willing to try anything, short of wiring my jaw shut lol.

Thanks for listening to my nocturnal rantings. I definitely love the support I get on here....!

    I know it sounds really simple but try drinking water before eating or eating ice. It was the only way that I got over boredom eating the first go around trying to lose weight. I would also agree with the other post that says try 10 mins of exercise. Hopefully then you won't be bored and we all know the benefits of exercise.

    My mother swears that working word puzzles at night when she can't sleep keeps her out of the kitchen.

    I don't know that I have any advice that would be practical. Can you limit was in the house for you to eat? That way, you almost HAVE to post-pone eating until a better time. Or changing up and doing something else? If you know you'll beat yourself up over not losing weight for your trip, can you trigger yourself to get ina 10 minute work out rather than eating? Or how about writing about how muich you want to eat and as you write, start focusing on how it feels to overcome the boredom eating?
