week 17 ...i am still here!!!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Well now that I made it this far, I think there is no turning back, I dont want to have the body that I used to have, i never want to be considered "obese" again, i am feeling stronger than i have in a very long time.I have lost a little more than i wanted to this week. actually .6 of a pound more,I know it is healthy to only loose 2 pounds or less a week, so im not sure if it was a metabolism thing or extra water i was carrying around cause its not that time yet...Anyways whatever it is it doesnt have anything to do with my exercising schedule because this week i have been exercising less and eating more calories, actually around the 1600 mark...;( a lot, i know but lost a little more doing so , that doesnt mean i am going to keep that up...when i am with my husband throughout the day i tend to eat a long with him and i think he has a high metabolism...anyways i am in stage of the things i have to do this week is to write about what causes emotional eating for me...well if you read my blog last week, it is son was away at camp last week and i was eating unhealthy food like crazy for the first 2 days that he was gone.i had to look at myself and think about what i was doing to my body, i need to find a better way of coping with my emotions..I found that some of the stress is relieved by exercise, and getting that time in everyday...and sleep..sleep is good.This is just something i have to find a better way of dealing with in the long run because if i dont i am going to be set up to fail....I need to get it into my head to find better ways of dealing with stress than eating, and hopefully i can keep myself on track...Not really sure how i feel about the weight loss this week, i am a little scared of dropping into the 120's but at the same time excited to see that that may show up on the scale soon...hopefully 129 next week??well we will see how it goes. thanks everyone for your support!!!

    I don't think 1600 is a lot. That's about what I eat daily when I'm being good. Although I am about 80 pounds heavier than you, so that probably relates!! LOL.
