I think the worst is over...

Saturday, February 01, 2014

An amazing blog arrived in my inbox at just the right moment. It's about learning from our mistakes. With the start of a new month, I am hoping that I have learned from the mistakes I made this week.

I have been on a feeding frenzy for the past several days. I know I'm not eating right and strive to eat healthy meals, but still find myself rummaging through the pantry looking for food. I can't even say that the food tastes good, because at some point I burned my tongue and the taste buds are out of wack. I could come up with a list of excuses, but they are only excuses. I have set myself to be more mindful of what I eat, how I feel, and what I am doing with the hopes this binge is over.

SparkPeople community moderator Denise says:
"Love yourself for who you are right now"

"Don't stop trying just because you hit a wall. Progress is progress no matter how small."

So today starts a new month. It is time I get back on the horse and see my journey through. emoticon emoticon

I thank everyone who has offered me encouragement this week. I will strive to live up to our expectations. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

    You have the right idea and you can do it!When the urge to eat kicks in kick right back by walking or dancing until you're out of breath and all you want is water. We can all walk in place to music or dance, do jumping jacks, anything to kick the urge to eat.

    emoticon Melissa! I'm so glad that you think the worst is over! I'm with you! I started eating within my calorie range today. Enough is enough! I finally put my "right" weight on my SparkPage and was totally horrified at the realization of what I had gained over the holidays. We can both LOVE OURSELVES NOW!!!!

    It is a new month. A day to reflect on the good and the bad for the last month. Hopefully, we will learn from our mistakes and do better. Thanks for sharing.

    Great blog...I like how you mentioned progress is progress even if it's small. Sometimes we think we blow it and totally give up. But even if it's better than the last time, we are still growing as people. Awesome blog.
