Ok, I gained all of my weight back, plus 2 pounds. Maybe I just put on my winter coat like my bunnies? No. I just stopped watching what I was eating and stopped exercising. I also realized that I was binging on food. I had some ED issues in college, but this is something new. I found that when I'm home and the DH and DD start fighting, which is alot and usually about cartoons vs. American Pickers, I start stuffing my face. When things start stressing me at work, I head for the "snack cube". When out at a restaurant and things get stressful, I'd clean up my plate and DD's. At family events, I eat so I don't have to talk to my family...it's hard to have a conversation when your mouth is constantly full. So, now I have to figure out how to change this behavior. I've requested some books from the library, and hope to start walking at work now that the weather is about 30 degrees! Walking is one of my favorite de-stressing activities. Family is going to be the biggest struggle. I guess this is just one more hurdle on my weight-loss journal. I'm not giving up though.
