Weekly Weigh In

Friday, August 09, 2013

I weighed in today and gained three pounds over the course of this week. I had that really bad cheat/binge day on Monday, so that's part of it, but I also have just been emotionally eating even if it's according to plan. I can't even pinpoint what it causing the emotions that lead to eating, but it's happening and I am just really wishing for the will power that I had when I first started this. As a matter of fact, I did not start this with much will power. My sister had to give me a pep talk, which then led me to come on here and be further motivated. I guess the quick beginning results continued to motivate me. I suppose being on vacation for three weeks inspired me more because I didn't feel the need to self harm in the way that I do when binging.

I did have some successes this week though, and I'd like to focus on what I'm doing right. I did eat the right foods approximately 75& of the week. I was incredibly active during the last week of camp, playing tag with the kids and doing extra work to not only be a better employee and camp counselor, but also to add those extra burned calories. I resisted many more temptations that came my way, including the donuts on Saturday, the pizza on Sunday, cupcakes on Wednesday, and pizza and dessert today. Most of this was camp related foods.

I felt terrible on Tuesday after the binge. I was low energy and just felt gross. I still feel bloated today on Thursday, but I did have more energy. I am getting back on track. I think this week's goal will just be to eat only when I'm hungry. I have the last music festival of the season this weekend and my brand new AMAZING LED hula hoop to play with, so I think I'll definitely meet my goal this weekend!

    Don't beat yourself up so terribly. Try to get back on track. In fact, there is a group Back on Track if you want to join that one for support. It is only day 9 there and plenty of time to jump in. It is for people who need some more motivation to get back on track and it is for all of August. If you are interested, go to my Sparkpage and the list of groups I belong to. It's there. Back on Track. I have found it a big help, as have most of the others who are members. It can't hurt. Hang in there!!
