Day 1 on repeat

Sunday, November 08, 2015

How many times have I been here? When will I stop sabotaging myself? I now know I am a 100% emotional eater. Not really for enjoyment, but for comfort. I did good on Wednesday, got aggervated at work on Thurday and have been bad ever since then. So here I am again...praying for a miracle .

    First
    HUGS!
    Second
    You'll probably be here forever because we are all just starting a day over again, each morning. There will be times when you'll be really happy about that - and excited to show off your progress and times when you'll think that you'll never make any progress. But I don't think any of us who struggle with weight are ever "there".

    At least, for me, I had to deal with that issue and once I accepted it I didn't struggle so much and would actually start all over again way sooner ... way before I regained forty levendy hundred pounds, but only when there were a few of them to get rid of.

    I also had to figure out what were the triggers that made me successful - in my own case it was when I picked up a new hobby - oh boy - would I delve into the topic, learning everything I could, practicing new ways and new techniques and devoting emotional commitment to it. So then I thought - well - make weight loss and healthy living my new hobby. Once I took it out of the scary Must Do Or You'll Be Fat Forever With Bad Health category and put it into the Boy I Can't Wait To Try This category - things became a lot easier.

    And LAST of all

    More Hugs.

    There are no miracles, it's hard work and you know that! But, you also know that you have the power to do it. It sucks having to go through the same thing time and time again, I know that as much as you do. You can do this, I'm here for ya!

    MIRACLES HAPPEN EVERY DAY. BUT WE HAVE TO HELP OURSELVES TOO. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT FOR A WHOLE DAY, TRY GOING FROM MEAL TO MEAL. IF THAT'S TOO MUCH TRY HOUR BY HOUR. EACH TIME YOU MAKE THAT ONE GOAL, YOU WILL BE STRONGER AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT STEP. YOU CAN DO THIS. IF A 68 YEAR OLD LADY CAN START OVER, SO CAN YOU!

    Welcome back! I'm facing the same thing lately. Feeling a little unmoored and eating/drinking to fill the void. A new day 1 for me today, too.

    Sorry you're struggling. I know you can turn "day 1 on repeat" into something positive. Pick just one thing that will move you toward your goal...just one thing...and do it just for Today. You got this!

    Dear, you are NOT ALONE

    Many of us are emo eaters

    I too keep losing only to re-re-re-re-gain

    I have been alternating between
    Wallowing in self-pity
    And
    Over-eating, thinking
    I will never be permanently successful

    BUT

    We CANNOT give up !

    Post a little more often.
    It DOES help to vent and
    you get loving feedback

    Have a Wonderful Week

    I totally get that. I keep losing and gaining same few pounds - and then gain a litte more. I think I eat from boredom and sometimes just for enjoyment. I recognize a lot of but having a hard time getting it under control.

    Me too. I've been at day one quite often, and have the same problem of emotional eating. The fact that you are back at it it the most important thing.

    Avoid labels and the self fulfilling prophecy. Identify behaviors then change them.

    Pack healthy snacks and when you feel that way take a walk also finding someone to talk to while walking helps
