The re-start that feels real...

I'm hoping this time the "be good to yourself" advice sticks.
I've downloaded an app on my phone to allow me to track my food being as I'm not always sitting at my computer. I know my weight loss kicks in when I track - and everyone I talk to say it works for them as well. Stick to what works. It's different, but it seems like it will work for me when I'm not sitting here. I look forward to the day when I don't have to do this, but I need to just take one day at a time - and track the one I'm living right now. :-)
I heard something on XM radio the other day that said, "Weight is the symptom" of...? Of something we define. So I thought about that a bit. Weight is the symptom of me not dealing with my emotions in a healthy way and trying to eat them away. So I'm trying to frame my eating with being good to my body and finding other things to do to deal with my emotions that don't involve me wandering into the kitchen to shove any and all food into my body.
I told my husband, "It's time for me to do something about my weight." He's encouraging, told me this morning to take a good walk or run to get my heart rate up. I'm now so far overweight that any movement will get my heart rate up. :-)
So here I go again, Sparkers. I'm not focusing on the big number, but just focusing on what I am doing well for myself today, which only seems right.
