emotional eating

Sunday, August 07, 2011

I have made it through 5 weeks. I have lost 11 pounds, plus 10 more in the beginning of the year before I started Sparkpeople. I feel better. I look better (though there is still weight to go). Life is good.... except that my challenges still exist. I am definitely an emotional eater. I was able to address that ... okay, overcome that until this afternoon. Up to this point, I have redirected myself when I wanted that piece of candy. I was able to grab an apple or 10 almonds. Today I was reading a sad story and I found the Bliss candy. Whoa! 4 pieces later I chose to stop. In days past, I'd eat at least twice that many. Today, I said NO. I don't want to destroy all that I have gained from Sparkpeople. I can stop and I can start over. Today I will be over calories, but tomorrow I'll be back in the range. I like the range. I can have higher days and I can have lower days. I like that I get feedback on much more, like my calcium and cholesterol intake. I like that I'll be able to go to my annual doctor visit in a month or so and talk about my nutritional status. Thank you, sparkpeople for providing me with tools to make losing weight and exercising easier....Notice, I didn't say easy. Anything worth doing is worth doing well and no one ever said it would be easy!!
