Secrets of Success

Getting Back Up Again



I'm an emotional eater. I eat to celebrate and to comfort and to stuff. I know this and I accept that changing this is a process. I need to find other ways to celebrate, comfort, and deal with life events and making those changes will take time. I have to accept this journey and keep trying.

More Information:

Recently I fell off the weight loss track. I was off for a few days due to disappointment at a plateau and then I was sick. But, after not tracking for 4 days I realized how important this journey was to me, and I started doing it again. If I just keep doing that, I'll reach my goal eventually.

  • Amanda, I understand. I recently fell off in the first week of June. I've been struggling to stay focused. My grandmother died a couple of weeks ago. It was harder to not succumb to temptations. I've been with SparkPeople for 2 weeks. I'm working on staying within the food limits, nutrition requirements, and upping my activity(walking everywhere). My goal is to be at goal 156 by May' 2012. We fall down but we get up. ;-) LOL - by BALLASTPOINT95
