I struggle as I try to figure out what to write. I look back at the past ten weeks of the Spring Challenge. I have completed all of the challenges. I have tracked all of my exercise and eating. I drank plenty of water. I took time for myself. But I only lost 1 pound.
It would be so easy to just give up. But I am worth more than that.
Yes, I have emotional struggles. I thought I had conquered emotional eating. But I now realize this is not so. I have determined what my triggers are. That is a big step in really starting to overcome the struggle. I have some strategies in place to distract me from emotional eating.
I will drink a big glass of water.
I will take a walk (if possible). I will get my camera and take some photos, even it just around the house.
I will get a book to read. I will call or text a friend.
I took some time to look back on my food tracker to what I was eating when I was losing weight. I am going to use that information to adjust my eating, even though the calorie count is the same. I am going to try some new recipes.
SO although this Spring Challenge kept me on the right track and, even though there was almost no weight loss, I feel positive about moving ahead as I have some plans in place. I will not give up nor will I be discouraged. I am going to keep on shining!
