continue writing down - calories in, calories out. Just had my Tarot cards read. Everything is going to be alright. I must be strong and in control in order to take care of others.

Enjoy

I am my biggest obstacle too, I am trying to learn how to not eat emotionally, I need to not eat because someone else is snacking at night. I need to tell my body that I am not hungry sometimes. Eating out is really hard too, as well as weekends.

The biggest obstacle for me for the past 2 weeks is over eating. Eating all day long. I think I have figured out the underlying Emotional reason why. So------ I Write down my meals for the week. Columns: Plan- -- meal # - -- Actual This keeps me on track --when I pay attention-- and write all of it down. Then I can transfer it to Smart People when I have the time.

Enjoy

Dealing with my arthritis. Had hip surgery last year and the recovery seemed to be longer than previous ones. Also, probably due to my weight, my knees started to hurt and I did not want to move much. Now that I have lost 15 lbs they are not bothering me as much and now I am planning an exercise regime.

Myself. I am the biggest obstacle. I need to do what I know is right and healthy and stick to it.

2011 from Jan thru Aug I had a mind blowing situation with a psycho neighbor who was hell bent on harassing me. Stress beyond words. No one could help me and it continued day and night for 8 straight months. I surprised myself at not turning to food for comfort...but I was soooo stress out that I didn't eat much...and I wasn't sleeping much either. When she finally did move out, it was as if my control finally gave way...I gained back 15 pounds...

so sometimes...in the midst of a very very stressful situation ...it isn't while you're in the thick of the problem...it sometimes afterwards that you give up control...and over indulge. Maybe as comfort that You SURVIVED...or maybe like another form of release.

Losing more than 50 pounds is not an easy thing, and we all slip up along the way. For me, I know that talking about my setbacks helps me to identify why they happened, and how I can prevent them from happening again. For example, my husband and I went to a friend's house for game night. She made some amazing queso dip and set it on the table with a bag of chips. Before we knew it, we had eaten FAR more than we should have, and we both felt a little sick later. It frustrated me, because we've been so careful to measure our portions and only eat healthy things. So we talked about how the situation tripped us up, and we realized that we were feeling a little deprived, and didn't want to offend our hostess. We overindulged as a result. We also talked about how to prevent a repeat occurrence, and we decided to occasionally allow ourselves treats in moderation, so that we wouldn't be so tempted in the future. We also looked into some healthy, share-able snacks, so that we can take a batch of them over for the next game night! I can thank her for the queso, and tell her that I thought it was my turn to provide refreshments. Everyone wins! Have any of you experienced similar situations? What trips you up? What helps you get past it? Let's help each other out!

You only get one life; make it worth living!
