Eating to live, not living to eat

Just another weblog


Re-commitment, Day 1

So, here I am, 6 months into my weight loss journey, 41lbs down and I need to recommit.  Over the past 2-3 months I’ve been following my plan (WW PP), but not really.  I follow it when its convenient (ie: zero point fruits!) but not when its not convenient-like when we go out to dinner or over to someone’s house etc.  Then I stop tracking and let all the good habits I’m trying to teach myself fly right out the window.  Even just being home alone will cause me to throw the plan out the window….a box of skinny cow wafer bars?  yes please.  After its over, I’m disgusted, but while I’m doing it, it just feels so good…..I hate the binge.  I especially hate the scale after the binge.  But, its not the scale’s fault.  Its mine-I have a horrible habit of binge eating when bored/stressed etc and have been doing that quite a bit while I was off from work for a month and now I am doing it when I’m home on my day off.  I’m not even hungry, but I still eat.  When I pay attention to my hunger cues, I lose weight.  I have done 40lbs on WWPP doing that, I did it in college (I don’t remember how much but I got to an all time low of 160s) and I did it in graduate school (When I got a toe into the 160s briefly then bounced back up after meeting my now hubby).

I joined a 2month challenge on 3FC.  My goals for the challenge are to lose 15lbs, exercise 3-4x/week after work and walk with the baby a few times a week weather permitting (we live in MA, its cold and rainy today).

So, today, I re-commit.  I had initially wanted to hit Onederland by New Years 2012.  I’m not sure I’m going to make that, but I’ll make a run at it and be proud of where I end up and how I am eating when I get there!  🙂
