Looking back...

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I've been reading back in my food diary/daily nutrition notes and wonder how I do this. If I could just get on an "EVEN KEEL" and master control of emotional eating I would be fit and healthy.
My diaries are an emotional rollercoaster ride.
I am a smart woman but cannot comprehend how to do this. My emotions and brain waves are so flighty.
Most of the time my problems occur from early morning till about 1 pm. But sometimes its early evening? Other times after dinner?
I wake up in total control or even go most of the day in control without worry and just fly off the emotioanl eating handle! Some times for no apparant reason but most of the time in emotional moods dealing with complexities of life.

NO MORE EXCUSES AND BLAME - JUST DO THIS! Why is it so damn hard?

God is revealing some things to me about all this but I'm not quite sure of the approach. I am aware that somehow, someway my focus needs to shift. I'm holding on to something but not quite sure what it is or how I am to let go? I am impatient... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I don't know if this will help - but instead of trying to be perfect every moment maybe cut yourself some slack and consider overall how things are going? I suggest that to parents at the hospital - there are many ups and downs when a baby is in the NICU - but I tell them to look at one week to the next to see progress. So look at where you were last year at this time - your weight, your fitness level - and then consider where you are today. Are you more fit? The other thing that made a huge difference for me was getting a personal trainer. Expensive, but effective. I made so much progress with him. I may have to do it again this year to keep making progress. Hang in there!

    You can only keep at it until you finally get it. It takes a long time. Try changing one small thing at a time and don't worry about the rest. That was my problem for a long time. Hang in there! You CAN do this!

    I am an emotional eater too and from time to time I think I can not control it, but if we want to, we will get better!!
