Wednesday Weigh-In #8 On the Divorce Diet

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Down to 176.6. That's 30 pounds lost since last summer, 40 since I joined Sparkpeople in Jan. 2011 (I lost some, then gained some back.)

It's hard to be as happy as I should be, when the weight loss is due to going through a separation. It's because I don't have my husband to eat out with like we used to. It's because I've been so upset and depressed that I don't have much of an appetite. It's because I'm in a tiny apartment that doesn't have a full-sized stove or oven, and cooking for just myself is too much of a hassle anyway. I am proud of the fact that I haven't turned to junky comfort food, and I do try to eat well. But I'm not eating as well as I could be, and I'm still not exercising regularly.

    This too shall pass! Think of it this way, start loving yourself so you can find someone new to love you!! I too have gone through a break up where I didn't want to do anything good for myself, but something clicked & I started back cooking (still for two but now I had leftovers for lunch) & exercising. My whole attitude changed for the better. It takes time, but you will get there!
