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.
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.
