My name is Belinda and I am an emotional eater

For as long as I can remember I have turned to food when I have lost all control over my emotions. I have a toxic relationship in my life that has taken a drastic turn for the worse. That being said the last 4 days have been a real challenge for me.

I almost gave into it tonight but instead I put on my walking shoes and me and Bruce went and took a walk. Good news is that walking is becoming a lot easier for me, I am able to walk further and stop fewer times. Bad news is that I still want to go sit in front of the refrigerator and eat everything in it! I must stay focused and not give in!

Struggle... Stumble... Grumble

Everytime I get in my groove and think that I am finally winning this battle something happens and I find myself back down at the bottom, maybe even a little lower, trying to scratch and crawl my way back to the top!

Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If that is the case I am the most INSANE person I have ever known!!

Did you know that the biggest obstacle to weight loss is not your body but your mind? I have decided that I must focus on setting small realistic goals or I will go complete crazy looking at the big picture!

That being said my next goal is to conquer this plateau I have been on for the past 6 months and get under 260 pounds. I hope to accomplish this by Monday, August 22, 2011. ~~Accomplished!! 8/22/2011

Small Steps

I got home from work today and made two laps around the parking lot at the complex I live in.  It is nothing that requires trumpets and fanfare, but it is a start.

♫ Here I go again on my own ♫ Going down the only road I've ever known ♫ Unfortunately that road is named Diet and I have taken a detour at the cross road Frustration and gotten lost.  I have been gaining and losing the same five pounds for the past six months and it is really frustrating.  I have been setting goals and failing to achieve them.  I have not been eating properly nor have I been exercising. 

Today at work our Biggest Loser challenge began.  We weighed in and will be competing for 12 weeks.  Everyone who joined put in $25.00 and at last count we had 22 people so that is a pot of $550.00 for the winner.  

I am very excited and hope this provides me the needed incentive to get back on track.  My friend Kati is teaching me how to do Weight Watchers Points and so far it seems like a program I can stick with.

The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It's your mind you have to convince.
