I HAVE GAINED WEIGHT.!!!!!!!!!!
No, I do not like it. Not sure how to get past this stress eating binge I am on.
Not been sleeping very well lately. I took med for my restless leg syndrome for the last two nights (it makes me sleep). I only took 1/4 tablet, but I at least get sleep. Problem is, I still feel left over most of the day even with this small amount of med. I can function, but I am slow to go.
I am doing a lot of "I'm Bored" eating as well as "Stress' and "Depression" eating.
I have been trying to keep myself busy with different projects. Which is great. I am getting things done that I normally would not have completed. The problem is when I stop, I am reaching for food. Some of it is healthy food, but a lot of it is not.
I am not saying I am giving up, but asking how do I stop this current mindset I have fallen into.
Wishing there was an easy way out, but knowing in my heart there isn't. Too bad we don't have a hotline to call and say something like this:
"Hello hotline, I am bored (or depressed), and I am about to eat a bag of candy (or whatever you have in the house).
Then the hotline answers:
"Step away from the candy, put it down. You can and will get past this. Now calmly put the candy in the trash can and take that trash to the big trash can in the alley. You can do this."
Oh for a food emergency hotline.
Oh yeah, I do have a hotline.......... it is in the form of my Spark People friends/family. It is a little like snail mail, but it is here.
Thanks for listening and for being my hotline.
Blessings to all of my Spark People Friends/Family.
