Sparked my "weigh" through another year.

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

I started out "mentally Tough".
Road the Steve Siebold train for 90 days and developed some habits I've kept.
Some I haven't.
I got a grip on some mindless eating and when I lost that grip found it a bit easier to get back on track.
I'm disappointed I did not keep off all the lost pounds but I will accept a net loss for the year with recognition that I CAN do it.
I still haven't been able to stop the emotional responses and grabbing the first edible thing when I'm distraught. I have been able to cut the feeding frenzy off a while after it starts.
This coming year I need to find skills to keep my mind off food when disaster strikes.

Did I say my life is always in a state of disaster?

Slogging through the last two weeks of the year and trying to avoid the junk food. If I place the food gifts I receive in the department lunchroom, they will disappear like a tsunami hit.

    My life is the same. My body is exhausted from always being on call, ready to rigorously pounce on the latest disaster and solve it in microseconds. I hate long drawn out problems.

    Progress is progress my friend - good for you! For some of us, I'm not sure we will ever remove food from our bag of stress relieving responses entirely BUT... managing "the beast" is a huge step!

    Here's to emoticon and more progress in 2015 - emoticon

    Good plan for getting rid of unwanted food gifts: re-gifting lives!

    And a net loss for the year is a good thing. And a jumping off spot for the next year. emoticon Merry Christmas.

    I need to look back to the first of the year and see where I was then. I know I am up since summer, but don't remember where I was weight-wise in January.

    Congrats on the net loss, and good luck avoiding the inevitable goodies that abound this time of year.

    A net loss for the year is a good place to be (and yup, weigh better than the alternative!!)

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and we'll just keep on keeping on lurching from crisis to crisis in 2015 right? Pretty much the human condition I'm thinking . . .
