Didn't realize that it would be this hard.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Losing this weight is hard for me so I go at it slowly. I do this so I won't get burned out. I have realized that I am an emotional eater. But I can do this. Just asking for everyone's prayers. I want to do this but I know that I can only do it with God's help.

    Don't give up!! I am going through the same thing and I am just saying -if all I do is record my calories- then I am doing good! I seem to get momentum and then get HUNGRY!! We can't give up!!! Surely if we keep at this- in one year we will be better off than we were last year?!

    not over-eating is easy... the hard part is not over-eating every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year, for the rest of your life!!!

    I agree it takes God. I am trying my best to rely on His strength and to know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I pray God will show us both how to live and eat for His glory.

    So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1Cor 10:31

    You are so right, only with God's help! I was able to unplug the emotional eating by rigidly sticking to my plan and gritting through and praying during the emotional cravings. Then came the holidays with different special foods which I determined to have in moderation. Somehow, that unplugged my eating to live not living to eat mentality and I started the emotional eating again. I'm struggling with it still, but know that surrendering this to the Lord and trusting Him will make the difference! The previous blogger said baby steps. I concur. Pray for the resolve to not eat emotionally for today. or for the morning, or whatever it takes to get on a streak.

    I am praying for you right now! emoticon emoticon Ritarose

    You can do it! I am an emotional eater too and now I am writing in my journal again to help me put my emotions in perspective and determine my true hunger. I will keep you in my prayers!

    I'm also an emotional eater and it really is hard some days. You do the best you can and when you trip (and you will) you pick yourself back up again. I'll keep you in my prayers. Remember tho, that just as God forgives us we have to forgive ourselves. That means no more guilt trips for messing up. It doesn't mean continue the mess up, but it does mean that it's ok.. forgive, forget and move on.

    Take it in baby steps.. one day at a time, one workout at a time, one meal at a time. You can do it!
