For the first time ever.....I did not emotionally eat while I was struggling. My life difficultly lasted a while.....and now that it's over....I am amazed at the fact I did NOT turn to food in order to cope with the uncomfortable feelings! Thank you my spark friends for the support! emoticon

Struggling to get back on track. So far better today. Walked for 1 and 1/2 miles. Will consider this a good start since I only exercised about one day a week over a 3 week period! Have to start back slow and steady!

I have stayed away from junk --now I eat too much fruit. I am going to beat this emotional eating...

Losing weight is very hard. Being overweight is very hard. I gotta believe I can do this before it will happen. God give me the strength.

Hi, first time checking in here but going to do my best to do so daily. Am trying to really observe/address emotional eating - reading Life is Hard, Food is Easy (have read it before) but am trying to dig down into what emotions are behind my eating. My desire is for balance. Not to deny myself anything, but be mindful of why I am eating it and more aware of real hunger.

emoticon checking in....My routine is a little off the past couple of days. I'm out of town and trying to keep things somewhat "normal" for me. I did make it a priority to Spark, so I'm glad about that. I am keeping my emotions relaxed...so that's a plus too!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day...and remember...keep your eyes on your goal!
emoticon

yay.....50 points for the team!

Today has been a struggle for me. I have just recently decided to take control of my binge eating. I binge eat when I am angry, depressed, stressed, and bored. All day today I have been fighting the urge to eat sweets. So far I am doing good, but the challenge is real.

If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.

Thank you all so much for the support I came back to. Shortly after I rejoined, I lost my computer. I am back up and running. To log in and see so much support from you guys was wonderful. Thank you. I had a cheat day yesterday as it was my sons graduation. And then today was national donut day....I have to get back on track...no time like that present.

Im having a hard time getting through the day without cheating as well. Im getting frustrated but I guess I have to keep trying. I have found that I am eating more healthy so I guess I have to just keep working on it. Small changes are better then no changes.

I ate too much this morning...401k meeting. The company provided bagels, and sweet rolls. I ate a healthy breakfast this morning and now I'm angry with myself for eating a bagel and half a sweet roll. My lunch time walk made me feel a little better but I can't seem to get through a single day without cheating. Ugh. I'll keep working on it.

Well- i was too busy at work to grab my snack/lunch so ate it on the bus on my way home. It satisfied so I had another local snack when I came in. Now cooking boneless/skinless chicken breast.
Today my co-worker said a 1x would swim on me. Very nice to hear since 14 years ago a 1x was tight! Still have a way to go but it does help me not see myself as that heavy!

Hope everyone is having a good day. I've got a heck of a headache this morning. Last night I was coming back from the bathroom and it was pitch black and I ran head first into the end of the hall wall. Hit my head and bridge of my nose. Scared the crap out of my hubby. I'm ok though, just the headache that won't go away.

I am right there with you. SO hard to do when "all my friends are doing it." I went to a Seder last night. SO MUCH FOOD. I made better choices, but was still up 0.2 pounds this morning. I take solace that in the past I've been up by 3 pounds the next day. Improvement, but still not where I want to be. I caught myself mindlessly eating more than once, just because they were.

It was hard yesterday since food is a huge aspect of my social life. All my friends enjoy new restaurants, food festivals, etc. I went to a festival yesteday with friends and, of course, wanted to try everything. I am still full this morning. I am trying to become a recovering foodie. Next time I will make healthier food choices.

It's been so easy the past few days. I'm not sure why, and it really doesn't matter to me. I revel in the ease, and accept that I can ride the waves if they come.

Good luck on the interview, Brilee. Sounds like you didn't let the bathroom problems phase you, Vicki. Glad it's fixed.

Hope everyone is having a good Monday. Had to have the landlord over to fix our toilet today. The donut underneath wasn't any good and the seal had cracked so we were getting a stink that was unbearable. Thankfully it was a fairly easy fix. So all is up and running smoothly once again.

Tomorrow is going to be a little stressful for me :-( I have a job interview and I'm normally wanting to go to the kitchen and find something to eat, but I just finished lunch, so I'm doing okay :-) I'm praying this interview turns out great. I could really use a job right now :-) I am starting to get stressed over bills and everything else related to money :-( I just need to remember, God is with me at all times and He will put me in the right position :-)

I've never been a real emotional eater. In fact, when I'm upset, I can't eat. I mainly eat out of boredom, or I eat too large of a portion in general. But I love this team and keep coming back to it.

I guess my check in is more of a weekly one!

I feel I did pretty well this week. I don't expect never to eat for emotional reasons: I felt my eating fit my needs well for the most part. The kitchen is closed for tonight except for tea. I plan to do a 16-hour "fast" that started at 6:30 p.m. At school, we all have "nutrition break" around 10:20 a.m. I'll have my fortified coffee then and a nice lunch at around 12:30 p.m., though there is a chance I'll take a sick day to grade essays! I'll still stick to the schedule, though I'll likely wait until 1 to eat lunch if I stay home.

Since my last emotional eating cycle I've been on target, for which I am thankful. I started a new challenge that has kept be seriously on track because I don't want to let my teammates down. I am down almost 7 pounds and thrilled.

Now the trick is not to go through another cycle and put it back on this tushie!

I had a blip in my plans today but I've been able to stick to my habits so far. I got through a tough 90 minutes and I'm glad now.

Life isn't going to give up creeping in! We've just paired food and the wish for a solution so many times, we think it's the difficulty that makes us eat. It isn't. It makes us WANT to eat. Miraculously, we can want to eat, but not do it. We can wait and have a real meal later. Yes, it takes a lot of practice, but what's the alternative? Saying no is what we do until we don't get the urges any more. It's worth it!

Been on a very good streak for nearly two months. Had a very satisfying lunch out with a friend. We split the entree and it was still plenty, maybe even too much, food. But it all comes out in the wash. I've had SO many years of overdoing it on Easter, and years of being sane on it, that this year I went very light, with just the chocolate-covered Peep she brought me. That and a little self-styled extra I had at home. It was al plenty.

So glad I have another week off before the final long stretch with my high school students to June 3. Will spend some time thinking and writing about the parallels between my former compulsive eating and my compulsion to act out at work.

I've had 2 days of emotional eating. Got some sad news about a friend (another friend, in addition to the one I mentioned before) who has a serious health issue. I'm not handling it well. Trying to offset with exercise, but the scale went up this morning of course. I need to get a firmer grip. Eating is not going to change what is going on.

Hope you are all doing better than I am.

I avoided eating ice cream yesterday because a colleague brought me back some broth. Today I planned ahead. I made myself broth and brought it to work!

Yesterday the sewer backed up. Blech. We thought the issue was within the area that is our responsibility so husband called a company who came and did something with it and charged us $500. Had an issue AGAIN, so called the company with whom we have insurance. They handle a different section of the pipe. Turns out they found way more than the first company. Today hubby is going to debate the fee with the first company. We shall see.

Thought about just eating myself silly. Or having alcohol till it came out my ears. Like most of us, we don't have the luxury of throwing away that kind of money. But instead I channeled my energy into trying my first Vlog (VLOG? vlog?). I have a newfound respect for anyone who has ever tried it. It is vulnerable and super scary, and I only did a silly 2 minutes worth!

Still, I think it was a better use of my time than shoving food in my face. I'll take that win.

Hoping to get some yard work done today. Hope no one here is caught in the flooding. Will not eat again until lunchtime around 1 p.m.

Also you hope you have a general plan for getting yourself fed reasonably today, and that you stick to it! I do not hold myself to the standard of eating only when I am hungry, but I do eat mostly at meal times. I try to eat meal sizes that let me get truly hungry for the next meal, but at my age, it doesn't always happen. I rarely snack. I have other eating guidelines for my meals I've refined over the years, but I don't think of myself as being on a diet. This is just the way i live now with food. This has cut down tremendously on emotional eating and helped me maintain a 20% weight loss for several years.

Didn't mean to go on and on. Would like to know a bit more about others.
