Trash Head

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

So today is the official start to Round 26 of the BLC.

My name is Jennifer, and I am a Trash Head.

Thank goodness the round is starting!

On August 13th, I weighed 215.8 lbs. Today, I weigh 220.6 lbs.

I know exactly what happened: I ate away emotions as I'm going through some major transitions currently. I didn't exercise, because I mean, why do something healthy and fun when you can just stuff your face instead?

There was always, "I'll think about it tomorrow"

Well, those days are OVER!

Through this amazing "learning journey" I've been taking through the Mycelium School I've learned that "asking for help is kind".

So, I'm going to be kind to all of you.

Tell you what... I'll help YOU if you help ME!

    I started a lot of rounds on Azure on Trash Island... so I can sympathize!

    The others have some good questions to ask yourself about what you want and what you need to do to get there. I would suggest that you also ask yourself what you are getting from the unhealthy habits and how you can get what you need (such as stress relief or feelings of comfort/happiness from eating, for example) in ways that don't undermine your healthy lifestyle goals.

    You CAN DO THIS! And the upside of Trash Island... you don't have to be stuck there for long. You can DO THIS and GET OFF THE ISLAND for a better place!

    Sounds like you know what happened and why. You are now armed to fight the next battle. This is a journey, not a race. It is also a learning experience and sometimes I find I learn faster when I stumble.

    We are by your side.....we can catch each other when we stumble.

    I hear you loud and clear. You got this. I went thur something similar with drama and gained a few pounds. But i decided I would not let drama stop mr and I am back down to what I weighted when the last challenge stopped. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon What do you mean? Do you need to track and to make good choices? Could exercise be at all as good for us as they say? If you can easily make up for your gain, my hat (if I wore one) is tipped to you. As for me, it takes so much work I dare not take my focus off my goal!
