Don't feed the wound

HAPPY 4th of JULY to all my Spark friends
Yesterday when I got on the scale, my 2 pound weight loss goal for my birthday was finally achieved, plus another .8 pound; only it was two weeks late. But that's okay because I'm only .8 away from an 80 pound loss. I'm so motivated today, which makes yesterday seem like a minor nightmare. Nevertheless it happened , so I'm going to tell about it in order to put it to rest. Somehow, I don't think the story will seem strange to many of you
I feel like today is truly "the first day of the rest of my life" as the saying goes. Even after my weight loss in the morning, I was in great distress by last night, having compulsively overeaten at an Italian restaurant at lunch . We celebrated the birthday of one of my Weight watcher friends, and I ate too many garlic rolls. I felt terrible by night time, and knew there were other things bothering me, so I did what I often do when I've reached the end of my rope and refuse to eat over the problem; I blogged. It was a very cathartic blog and uncovered my real emo problem, and even gave me a new slogan to live by. BUT..............as so often seems to happen to me, when I went to post it, it went out into cyber space, never to be seen again, at least by anyone it was intended for!! But while writing, I received a miracle, and when the blog was finished, I had discovered the source of my anxiety, was completely delivered from my emo hunger, and had the "peace that passes all understanding."PLUS, I had a new slogan"DON'T FEED THE WOUND," which I think will help me through many of my future near slips. All in all, my experience once again proves the theory that most of our hunger starts in our head, and in our hungry hearts.
