Hot for the Holidays- Weigh in #1



Hot for the Holidays


Well, I did very well this week. Until Thursday night.

I did my workouts everyday, turned down foods, and all around had a healthy week.

Then Thursday night, I watched TV with the family and ate a few more sugars than I had been allowing myself.

Then Friday, I bombed, I had three beers, a fabulous pizookie from BJs brewhouse and felt guilty.

In my guilt, I ate horribly just now with a bowl of ice cream with yummo toppings.

GRRRR... I am not sure what sabotaged all this. Perhaps because I found out the ex is going to going out on a date with someone in the next week, or perhaps someone at work finally stepped up and asked me out. And I said "Yes". Maybe it's because I lost my rent check and now I'm a tad paniced about it all. Either way, it's stress related, I know that much.

So, this week, I lost 2.5 pounds. I can only take it one step at a time!

delurking.
new week starts tomorrow and, even with your extra treats (wink) at week's end you still lost this past week!

you can do this...for sure.

the emotional eating thing is a TOUGH HABIT to break.
but you can break the stressemotional cycle and are part way there by identifying it!

xo xo,

Miz.

Good For you!! At least the scale went down and not up, right? I am a super emotional eater, too, and when I mess up, I get more upset and keep on eating crap. What a ridiculous cycle! I give you props for even trying, I can't seem to get myself to focus on that, but I need to. You are going to inpire me, so stay motivated and strong! Baby steps!!! You can do this! (And so can I?)

You can do this! Slip ups happen, just get back on track and you'll be fine! You wouldn't be human if there weren't slip ups! Don't be too hard on yourself! *hugs*

hey, you lost weight though! So congrats!! :) Keep up the great work.

AND you have to treat yourself every so often, or you will go crazy! So... drink those beers!! ;)

But that's the best way in anything in life, you know... Step by step!
Hope you've found your rent check by now! I'm all glad here for your date, let the ex move on, if he left, it was to leave room for someone new.

Kisses!!!

OK, OK, wait.

You lost 2.5 pounds. In a week. That's HUGE.

Emotional / Stress eating thing aside, feel good about the accomplishment! You lost a good amount of weight, while still doing those things that you enjoy.

Sheesh. Complaining about how you 'only' lost 2.5 pounds would have most of your fellow dieters turn irate in a heart beat and begin stoning you with still frozen Lean Cuisine dinners.

The sustainable kind of lifestyle change you're shooting for can't be viewed through the lens of success/failure. 1 rotten apple doesn't spoil the bunch here - a night out with friends isn't a setback, step backwards, momentary lapse, or loss of control. It's an entirely acceptable - even necessary - component of this whole thing.

Let go of the idea that things are either a) utterly, completely, down-to-the-last-egg-white-omelet perfect or b) an abject disaster.

A little bit of indulgence and good time is perfectly forgivable.

Not giving me a call when heading to BJ's? An unforgivable Cardinal Sin for which you shall be punished! :p
