Once an emotional eater...

Monday, June 03, 2013

My Dad was taken to hospital due to high blood pressure. He usually has low blood pressure so after telling him about healthy eating I found myself eating food I usually pass on..

I was out with hubby who also wants to lose weight did great on our main course but then after passing up dessert we changed our mind and had a Belgian waffle. I got mouth sores and a tummy ache and he just didn't feel that great...It's so not worth it. Of course having had the Belgian waffle, once I came home I had a binge and felt even worse.

I don't know why we get dragged back to old habits...it's just silly.

Committing to eating nutrient dense food 95% of this month. I'm sure there will be slip ups but I don't want to end up in hospital.

I'm also going to change my ticker and make sure I start to see the damage I am doing to myself...

    In some ways i agree withe "once an emotional eater..." Thing, nut i see lots of change and progess here. Yes, you had a binge night. But you came here and wrote about it. You thought about what the trigger was. you've made a plan to move forward, and you are already back on track! n other words, you are not letting one slip pull you down... And that is true success, what with this whole imperfect human thing we all are.

    Hope your dad gets better soon!

    I can relate to your blog. I have struggled with that for years. I really have to watch myself when I get stressed or down. It is a slippery slope for me. But I have to remember that we are all works in progress. It's progress, not perfection. You got to just pick yourself up and keep going!

    Best wishes on your 95% goal. emoticon

    Hope your dad is feeling better. The emotional eating thing is such an easy coping mechanism so I know what you mean about coming back to it again and again. Great goal for the rest of this month. Hang in there! emoticon

    It takes time to get into the groove of eating healthy. It is a daily thing to encourage yourself and be conscience of your eating. You two will get it. My husband and I went through it. Your tummy starts to adjust to it as you stick with it. You will notice you fill up faster and are satisfied.
