I Refuse To Get Discouraged.....

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

So I weighed this morning--I gained .4 of a pound. Not too bad, considering I ate an entire pint of Ben and Jerry's last night. I have been increasing my activity level, also. I know--that is no excuse. I ate it cuz I wanted it and I am an emotional eater, somewhat. I didn't really have anything in particular to be emotional about last night--but I'd gone all week without dessert, and my husbeast offered to go to the store--so there I was. I had a choice to only eat one serving--I chose to eat the whole damn thing. I am taking responsibility for my actions and not making excuses. A couple of weeks ago I ate three pints of the stuff in one week. (very emotional week!! and yes, I was TOTALLY medicating!)

The only thing I can do is recognize--own it--and do better next time. Which is what I intend to do. And take a walk today. ;)

Right now I'm running alongside that wagon I fell/jumped off of. lol But soon I'll be able to jump back on! for now, though, I'll just run alongside. ;)

    Well, you hit the nail right on the head. I'm the same, if something is upsetting me, I turn to food... then there are times that I don't know exactly why, but I just WANT to eat 'the whole damn thing' (whatever it may be). It's an uphill run that we're on when it comes to emotional eating.

    You have the right approach to it "I did it, I know I did it, and I'm not going to let it ruin the rest of the plan."


    We can do this! We've done it before.

    Darn, you should've dropped by the house with that ice cream! I'll bet we could've struck up some kind of deal for all the Papa Murphy's Chicago Meatlovers Stuffed Pizza I stuffed into myself!

    Seriously, the only way to deal with it is to move on.

    I'm an emotional eater too. Keep working at it (it may take a while...took me about a year before I realized I wasn't doing as much of the emotional eating as in the past.) Be patient! It will happen for you!
