Last night I had a lightbulb moment.

It was late, I was watching "Lost" on Netflix and decided I wanted to eat. I had the dish out and the box in my hand when I said out loud: I am not hungry. I am tired, thirsty, I have a headache. I am lonely and worried about DBF. Eating won't make me feel better. I need to drink some water, take some advil, and go to bed.

And that's exactly what I did! I woke up this morning refreshed and hungry for a good breakfast. Now I'm going to go work out! :-)

I ate when I was not hungry.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Even if we lose the race, we are still a winner (just a slow winner).

As long as you keep moving, you are still lapping those on the couch.

Do not take things personally as it is never about us.

Don't find fault, find a remedy.

This was basically when I realized that my relationship to food was taking an unhealthy turn towards obsession, and that I was feeling more stressed than ever about what I ate. I didn't want to live that way anymore, and so I did an "experiment" of two weeks without tracking my calories. I never went back!

Well which moment would you like? LOL

My first moment came when i was vacation with my family and my hubby had just lost 100 pounds and we took a family photo at the entrance to the theme park. We got the picture back later in the day and boom there I was all in black, round. Ugh so i joined weight watchers. Did great lost 40 pounds. (back when I only had about 40 pounds to loose!)

fast forward 2 years

We were trying to get prego with our 3rd baby. It wasn't happening. it was depressing friends and family around me were getting prego but not me. So I ate. gain the 40 back plus another 40. I finally got pregnant, went on to have one more baby only 18 months after, so topped out at my all time high!!

got back into spark people, and lost 20 pounds. Depression crept in again, (not sure on the trigger this time) and gain back 17 pounds. So now my moment was the other day. Ok well i had mini moments before than reading Dimitra's blog, but my moment was the other day when after a shower i looked in the mirror. and ugh the rolls of fat that hang down in places they shouldn't hang down, the back boobs, i just don't like the way i look.

There is my moment (s)
