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.

Good morning! Thank you all for all the kind words on my page! I was excited and honored to be chosen member of the week. Starting over is daunting at times, sticking with it a challenge too, but I have found so much encouragement here on SP this time back. Thanks again. emoticon

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.

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.

I guess checking in every day would be a good idea to help combat emotional eating. I'm game. Today I ate a fast food chicken sandwich possibly for emotional reasons.

I'm answering the question from 1/26. I am in the middle. I think it's better to eat three meals, skip snacks, and learn how much food at meals leaves you hungry for the next one. I've been doing it for six years. Sure there have been some downs and ups, but it's mostly been a lifesaver.

NO slim culture in the world depends on its individuals eating willy nilly when they are hungry. They eat moderate meals at relatively regular times and try to share those meals. But they don't believe in stuffing themselves or pressuring each other to eat too much.

Hi,

I'm dealing with a lot of emotional issues in therapy and it's really helping but I was still getting hung up over the number on the scale. Sound familiar. I wrote a blog which people are liking (not trying to toot my own horn) that might help you.

Blog title "Have you heard the one about the GPS? Why they and our weigh scales are kind of similar"

Check it out and let me know if you can relate

Hi All and Vicki,
I think if you are not hungry you shouldn't eat. I find that very hard to do. I like to eat and tend to make allowances because I am sitting with others who are eating. I would have something small and a drink rather than have nothing. Later, when I feel hungry I'd eat a real lunch or whatever the meal time might be. You are correct almost ALL books tell you to eat small and often, Breakfast, snack, Lunch, snack, Dinner. My problem is I eat too much by the time dinner arrives. I'm trying to learn how to curb my appetite.

I posted the below question in another team qotd, but am curious about how ya'll feel about the question.
*************************************
Do you think it's more important to eat 3 meals & 2 snacks a day as most diet books tell you to do, or do you think it's better to only eat when you're hungry?
***********************************
Being married, we tend to eat at set times for the basic meals but there are lots of times I'm not actually hungry at meal times, and it causes a few arguments if I won't eat ( Bob gets ticked off). But I think the worse thing I can do is force myself to eat if I'm not hungry. What are your thoughts on this?

I've been tracking my food for some months now. I'm averaging about 15-1800 calories a day. With all the walking I do at work, the adjusted calorie range I should be eating is more like 2100. I really need to add working out to my routine. But, with my back pain it has been very difficult to do so.

Positive quote-New year-new start to a new me.
Started out the day eating healthy and will end it eating healthy. I had breakfast biscuit for breakfast, seaweed and 2 tbs peanut butter for lunch, for dinner I have a salad with chicken and black beans from Starbucks planned, for snack I have Greek yogurt planned. Went to coffee with my walking buddy and made plans to go to Walmart tomorrow. We have a short walk, a bus ride and then take the train to get there. Takes about 30 minutes but is well worth it, I can get some good deals there.

Thanks for your commit , I have thought about writing a book but think it would be better if I wait until I reach goal

The 3-bite rule sounds simple and effective.
No doubt needs to be practised.

The 3 bites rule is one I came up with on my own from all the self help books I have read over the years. I know what it feels like to be hungry or just eat because of emotional needs. Eating won't fix those problems.

There are certain foods that I just can't eat, but I keep trying to convince myself that is could just have a little. Yesterday I made banana bread...a slice for breakfast or snack is no big deal...but once I had one piece i ate half the loaf. I need to develope a list of things that I cannot have at home.

I used the 3 bites rule to stop a binge today. The first three bites are for taste and eating more if not hungry won't heal what emotional pain you are feeling

Vicki, I LOVE your "Saturday" graphic! That was me... It always feels good to get back on track after a "holiday extravaganza," I've found. But that graphic is fantastic!! And the usual stuff of which my "foodie" dreams are made can wait a while now...

This time of year I find myself eating a lot of comfort foods. The holidays are stressful. It is also the end of the month and money is really tight. I want to eat junk food and find myself spending our last few dollars on chips. I was good though and measured and tracked the chips I ate today. I am trying very hard not to go over my calorie allotment for the day.

I am glad I have Spark Friends who understand emoticon emoticon

I have positively been avoiding Sparkpeople and my teams. Today is the day I'm slinking back in.

So much emotional eating with my husband's job loss and other factors. That emotional eating didn't fix a thing. Not a single thing.

Instead my back and knee hurts from the extra weight, I feel awful and embarrassed, and I'm only 27 pounds down from my heaviest at this point.

Eating didn't change anything for the better.

Got a pretty one of beaches for hubby and sunsets for me. We had company over for dinner last night, one of our neighbors. We also sent dinner to his roommate. Not much 'getti left but will have it for dinner. Hope everyone had a nice day yesterday and did not eat to much

Congratulations, Vicki! You did beautifully!

My husband and I stuffed ourselves silly, but it was a planned "way off" day, and I'm maintaining at this point. Nonetheless, why is it food tastes sooo great, you can never get enough of it, and once you've had too much, you're almost stretched out flat?

Now I've got to recuperate! 'Twas the season... emoticon

I always like when guests want to contribute to the meal, as then I know if they don't like something I made they'll at least like what they made or brought.
But it was just the 2 of us this year. I just got off the phone with my son ( he has flu so felt pretty bad ). My kitchen has been cleaned up and food is in the freezer for thaw & heat up extra meals. We haven't had dessert yet ( cherry cheese pie), but we'll have that in about 30 minutes, then the kitchen will be closed for the night.
I stayed within my nutritional goals so I'm a happy camper over that.
Merry Christmas !!
