I've been doing pretty good lately. I got
Upset with my husband Monday and ate a chocolate bar and a bag of sugar free jelly beans. The chocolate bar had stevia, but the jelly beans had malitol. And let me just warn you if you haven't tried it, the warning about sugar alcohols having a gastrointestinal effect is true!! Especially if you eat a whole bag!

I know I've been missing the daily check in. But I'm present. :) Just going through my notifications right now. I'm going to be heading to bed soon as I have a long day tomorrow. Two houses plus the bank and tomorrow is my daughter's first day as a junior. :)

I went to my aunts birthday party yesterday and ate a piece of cake (I have bee mostly off sugar for four months), after that I managed to eat a brownie, some candy, and a donut!

Eating sugar just makes me want more. It's like soda (which has sugar), if I don't drink it, I'm fine. If I give in and drink one I want more!

I had a tough day today. In the middle we had our kids and grandkids over and that was very nice. I was discouraged tonight but did not go and eat more food- I was over calorie wise already!

Good morning! :) I've already got my dinner planned and thoughts of one item I definitely want to eat today. Just to plan the rest of my calories around that.
Let's see. On today's agenda:
Clean one section of the bank
Church
Exercise
Water.
I actually managed to get some exercise in yesterday. Just some toning and no aerobics. It rained quite a lot yesterday so that is the explanation for the head and knee pain. :(
I pray you all have a blessed day!

emoticon Team!

Today is going to be a great day....why....because I can make it one!

How.....by keeping my mind focused on the present....not looking back and not looking forward....I think in the counseling world they call it......being mindful!

Yep...today I am going to focus on all the beautiful, mysterious, and unusual things of creation!

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!

I gained it all back, but back in the saddle again. Slim Fast for first meal. Determined to do daily cardio at home, regardless of walks and bike rides to store, etc.

Yesterday was a struggle for me. I was cooking for a young lady that has cancer. I taste, lick and all the things I am not supposed to do. More cooking today! I haven't really left the house because my husband had rotator cuff shoulder Thursday. I need some activity

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.
