Week 13 - I don't even know where to begin

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

I'm not really sure how to even write about this week. When I came home from the wedding I had a very difficult time readjusting to my diet routine. This week; however, just went from the frying pan into the fire. I went from making bad decisions because the food tasted good, to massive over-indulgent emotional eating. I managed to force myself to keep up with my nutritional journal hoping it would deter me a little, but it didn't. I actually consumed on average 2835 calories and 125 grams of fat a day. emoticon

I'm stressing out because of the wedding, finals and my upcoming surgery. My schedule is balls-to-the-walls busy and I don't have a moment to stop and breath. I posted a thread about my emotional eating and got a lot of positive feedback which helped me feel not so alone in this issue. I also spent my entire therapy session working on it and I hope to keep focusing on it until I can stop this behavior. Over-eating is one thing, but that psycho-driven addiction is freakin scary and I don't want it to be a part of my life anymore.

The good news is that I did not gain any weight this week - don't ask me how. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if it shows up next week. I did good today and am just trying to do things one day at a time. That's what this is all about right? The weight loss is a secondary benefit, but the real goal is getting my life together for the better.

    Hey you! Long time no talk - just wanted to say that despite your worries about what you have been eating look at all the good things that have come from all your hard work. Remember its not a diet but a lifestyle and your living for a healthy you (of course the weightloss is an added perk)! Just don't give up on yourself and don't forget to give yourself credit for what you've accomplished thus far - it takes a VERY strong woman to be able to juggle everything the way you are. emoticon

    If I can do this; you can do this-believe me. I like the star background on your page. It reminds me of one of my quotes, "Aim for the moon, even if you miss, you'll still land among the stars!" You've got so much going right now that I thought I'd include another quote: "Just keep SWIMMING!!!!"---from the movie, Finding Nemo.
