Eye Opener

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

What an eye opener this day has been and it is only 1:15. After arriving at work at 7:30 it soon became how off track not only my eating had become but my thoughts and attitude about eating. I was once again resorting to the emotional comfort of food and I didn't even realize it. I lost over 100 pounds about 4 years ago and up to about six months ago had kept it all off. But with the addition of a new high stress job and a new husband my weight slowly crept up by about 25 pounds.

After taking a good look at my nutritional life and seeing what was happening to me I decided to get back on the same train that led me to success previously. Not a diet, simply being aware of what goes into my mouth, and being active.

It quickly became apparent how far off track I had gotten when I got to work. I caught myself about a million times this morning reaching into the "comfort cupboard" when I wasn't hungry, when I wasn't thinking and when I was feeling a little stressed.

A little awareness goes a long way in my case. I feel like I am back on the train I need to be on and I will pay a little more attention this time so I stay aboard.
