I am not new to these boards, but I do come and go. Well, this time I plan on staying for a while. I restarted WW on 1/8/08 and have been doing well, but I need the support of a great community. So, here I am!
I am a mother of 5 kiddos and have been married for 14 years. I have a great career............but I have a weight problem that rules my life. So, I am off to beat it. I have made some pretty hefty goals (as you can see from my tickers) but I plan on breaking them down into smaller ones so I won't get discouraged. My first mini-goal will be a 20lb loss by 2/14/08. At the rate that I have been going thus far, I think it is achievable. Right?
I have noticed that my biggest hurdle as of yet has been my urges for instant food satisfaction. It is sure hard to beat those urges. I was at work yesterday when I wanted something to eat.....like immediately
!! I didn't know what to do! I paced and paced and even felt a little bit angry, but I managed to get to the vending machine and get some raw vegetables to eat. I ate them and I wasn't satisifed.....not really, but my crazy bingeing
urge was over. Thank goodness. It almost beat me but I won. Any suggestions on how to overcome them?
