Life update

Sunday, September 25, 2016

So I didn't do too well about losing the weight by my birthday. Depression makes me eat and drink, being fat makes me depressed, vicious cycle. I found a job I LOVE that I started right around the end of August and I was worried it would contribute to weight gain(I'm a pastry chef for a popular local restaraunt, literal dream job)...but it hasn't. It's helped because it keeps me on my feet and moving. It's helped give me something to enjoy outside of home and make a little money at which has helped the whole depression thing. As long as I stay strong and don't snack on my wares too much and avoid sitting at the bar after work, it's more of a help than a hinderance. I've been working really hard the last few weeks, particularly this last week, and am proud to say I'm down 6 lbs and am back to the weight I was when I fell off track. So I'm super excited to keep pushing and make some new progress!

    Now's the time, while your feeling good, to find something other than food to use when you feel stressed, sad etc... Start a 10 min a day walk or something. I've heard that food is the most over used stress reducer and exercise the most underused stress reducer. Congrats on the job AND the weight loss!

    You're on the right track, with the right attitude and focus. The key is not the goal, but the successful steps that you take to get there. That leads to long term change you can live with.
