The Road Less Eaten

Sunday, March 16, 2014

I have been disappointed in myself for a long time. I rejoined Weight Watchers last June and still haven't hit my 5 percent goal yet on getting back down to goal weight. I have been coasting and losing a little, but at least not gaining. And I have found a Weight Watcher group with a bond and there is so much love and motivation in that room every Saturday. emoticon

The coasting has been my fault. I will be doing great all week, then something happens emotionally, and I reach for food I shouldn't emoticon or wine that dissolves my resolve and have blown it by weigh in day on Saturday emoticon

Yesterday, for the first time, I decided to throw out the wine emoticon
I will not have anymore drink until I am back at the brink (of goal weight, that is) emoticon

I need to turn down a different road now. I am 50 and the road I have been on is too winding. Involves too many curves, sticks and stones, and I keep tripping and skinning my knees.

It's now time to take it to the next level. Before I die, just once, I want to be that skinny girl that people look at and admire. And to have self-confidence in my looks. Just once, it would be nice and not have to worry about what pants I can or can't fit into this week, because of the binge bloat. Just once, to not be "average" but amazing. Just once, to have overcome the desire to turn to food when life gets tough.

I have seen many Sparkpages where people have done just that, and I want to be one of them. It is AMAZING to see these transformations in people.

For now, when the food demons hit me, usually at night, emoticon I will be Sparking and looking for help. It's going to be hard and I can't do this alone. So, if you are dealing with the same demons, let's add each other as emoticon and we can get each other through this.

Together, we can do this.

    Oh how I love wine! The last time I lost the weight, I gave up the drink too. Your persistence motivates me! You will be that girl.

    Now that I am at the end of my 90 day challenge I figure I'll challenge myself to 90 more.
    My thought was...stare at the pint of ice cream for 90 days, treat myself at the end of the challenge (13 lbs down).
    I've lived without the ice cream for 78 days. Why do I need to eat it any more?
    Just a thought.

    I'm on Weight Watchers too, and have been the past couple of years. I keep losing and gaining the same 10-15 lbs, but I am making much more of an effort this time around. Being healthy is my new job.

    emoticon Big hugs, you can do it. We can all do it. We just have to find the balance.

    Emotional eating and night time eating are tough habits to break. Just take it day by day. emoticon
