Emotional Eater

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

During the year of 2010, I lost 90 pounds and I have slowly but surely packed on 30 of those pounds. Enough is ENOUGH!
What's sad is that, while packing the 30 pounds back on, I've been working out just as hard as ever--it's just the emotional eater within me took the reigns back.
I'm tired of letting the Emotional Eater be in control of what goes in my mouth. I'm taking the reigns back.
Last night while talking to my dad on the phone, I told him, "I haven't fallen off the wagon, because I'm still working out intensely. But I feel like I'm hanging on to the side for dear life, scraping the dirt as the wagon rolls on-ward."
ENOUGH already. I'm getting back in the wagon and taking the reigns BACK. I am TIRED of seeing the scale creep back upward and making excuses. No more. It's a downward track from now on.

My plan of action is to start out by packing my house with good groceries and cleaning out the pantry of bad choices--even if that means making my husband forfeit mac n' cheese...he'll be happier with a healthier wife than he will be eating mac n' cheese! haha

Please, I beg of you, help keep my accountable.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog!! You never let go of half of what you need to do to keep your goals in sight, you can get back to eating healthy!! :) Try to remember how delicious you thought those healthy things were when you were doing your very best, and how you thought "why haven't I always ate this way!?" Remembering those times helps me get back on track, hope it can help you too! emoticon

    Way to go! I'm ready to get back in control myself. Just remember you are definitely more important (and stronger) than any food.

    Now if only I could take my own advice. ;)

    I am hanging on the side of the wagon with you. I lost 85 lbs about 2 years ago and I have gained since gained 30 or so of it back. When I get stressed I eat anything. And right now I have so much stress it's not funny. I ate horribly over the weekend. :( I need to get my food choices in check. You can find healthier version of mac and cheese for you and your hubby.
