Back to 5 pounds down

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Well I am officially back down the 5 I had lost since coming back to the Spark. Had a small slip and was away for about two and a half weeks and managed to gain almost 2 and a half pounds in that time frame. Amazing just how off track one can go with the eating when we are not conscious of what we are putting in our mouths.

With all that has been going on this last week, I must say that I am proud to have had any loss. I have so wanted to binge eat for emotion reasons. Comfort food anyone??? Nope I held on tight and tracked all that went in my mouth good and bad.

Its midweek already but wanted to check in and show myself in black and white that this does work if I work it.

Hope you all are having a good week also.

    I hear you! I have been absent most of the summer...and it flew buy, taking with it all the progress I made the year before.... I kind of did it on purpose though because last year I learned that I have Hypothyroidism, and I kind of needed to wrap my head around that one. I was working so hard and was expecting to get a really awesome report card from my doctor. Instead I was handed a lifetime prescription. So I purposely took a moment in time to just get better with that (and the severe depression caused by it), before I focused on anything else. I didn't GAIN much weight... I held steady, but now it's time to GET WITH THE PROGRAM again! Lets do this thing...AGAIN. lol.

    I'm right there with you, so never feel alone. The things I discover about myself on this site and of course the help and encouragement from the articles and coaches and the Sparklers is fantastic. Could not do any of it without them.

Hang in there - it does work and in the process, so do we. We can't help it. We find out things and give it a good try and discover, "Well shoot! That works!" and then we can't just let it go.

Congrats on the loss and keep going. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    So true. When I eat right, I'm rewarded and, when I don't, I reap what I sow. LOL. Right now I am working on eating better without going crazy - I'm ditching the perfectionist attitude. I need to make small changes I can incorporate until they are set in stone and then move on.

    Good news...Ya, know the feeling about not putting stuff in your mouth. Have a first communion this week, and it is going to be a struggle.

    Good for you. I've had a bit of a bobble myself, but food doesn't fix what's really wrong and we all need to remember that no matter how hard it is some days.
