I'm out of control

Saturday, December 22, 2007

Today is December 22nd. I feel like I am losing control of my eating habits. I continually eat the things that I shouldn't. I tell myself "it's the holiday days - you can recover after the first of the year. It really makes me mad that I do this to myself and the more I beat myself up, the lower my self esteem goes. The only person I'm hurting is myself. AND worst of all, no one is forcing me to eat these things.

I will be glad when the holidays are over.

I hve a lot to loose and when your looking at a long haul you can run into problems. Just keep on reminding yourself it's a lif style change and I'll be praying for you.

    Hi Linda,
    You can rest assured that you are not alone in not dealing as well as you would like for the holidays...have a little bit of what you like...don't overdo it...drink that extra 1/4 cup of water...it will help fill you up. Do not put yourself down, remind yourself that it is not the end of the world. As the old song goes..."pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again." You can always get back on track and I know you will. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year (in which you WILL continue to win the downward journey and see some victories.)

    Linda, Strwbryfl is right, please don't beat up on yourself. My eating hasn't been perfect by a long shot, but even within the same day you slip, you can go back to healthy eating. This is the first holiday season I have gone through since I changed to the healthy lifestyle and those old habits die hard. Just do the best you can each day and keep posting about it, all of us are in this together. We care about you.

    I know exactly how you feel.. dont beat yourself up over it. Take the holidays to prepare yourself mentally for new changes in your life after the holidays are over. Maybe when the next holiday comes up you will be able to control your eating a little better. Remember we ALL know how you feel.. that's why we are here trying to do the same thing you are.. you are not alone! Have a wonderful holiday~
