Today I listened to a webinar about weight loss. The premise was that there are people that feel too much, and without changing their diet, gain weight as a result. Now, I know this sounds so silly to those of us that are lifelong dieters...but, when I stopped to really think about it...there might actually be something to it.
Apparently, there are chemical changes that do happen in the body that cause the it to gain weight during times of heavy emotion. I won't go into too much detail, but the seminar seemed to make sense. I bought the book to learn a little more... I found it interesting, because there have been times when I was on track with food, exercise and water and I gained. It is very discouraging, but it never dawned on me that the body could react to emotion BY gaining weight if your calories in and calories out is on track. But, duh Kristi...look at Biggest Loser. Even those people who are working out like fiends end up gaining sometimes, and it is usually during the weeks of their "emotional breakthroughs". So my rather large bottom could partially be contributed to my emotions and empathy for others. Interesting...
I know this personally, this week has been a lot of ups and downs. I am starting to get myself back on track. I think tomorrow I will be there 100%. The one thing I think I really need to finally give up, without relapsing, is sugar. Even the fake stuff puts me into a craving tizzy!
I need to learn to "Just Say No...to Sugar...and Fake Sugar!"
ps - Please forgive my jumping around in this post. Its been a long day and I am beat!
