Oh so glad you got a HRM! You won't regret it, it makes things so much easier. You can use it swimming too I think.
And emotional eating yeah that is a toughie. You need recognize when you're not eating for hunger to find some other outlet for your emotions. Easier said than done! I keep to a routine of times I eat meals and snacks so I know I don't need to eat outside those times. I also like exercise and meditation/hypnosis tapes as an outlet. I also try to practice mindful eating, thinking about why I want to eat, and when I do eat to slow down and try think about what I'm eating. It gets easier, but it's something I'm always working on. There's a good guide here:

I love your blogs...you have are making your best effort to take control and the pounds will start to slide off....it all takes time.
You might want to try No Sugar added Fudgsicles or Artic Zero Chocolate flavored ice cream replacement ...it has only 150 calories for the whole pint and Walmart carries it.
Their are other flavors but I think the Chocolate is the best. The Artic Zero is creamy and the trick is to put it on the counter for 5 minutes before eating to get the creamy goodness.
Please postyour cauliflower recipe for the grilled cheese in the New recipes section

Cauliflower Crust Pizza
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
Olive oil (optional)
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Other additional toppings of your choice
Rice cauliflower using the food processor's shredder blade. Alternatively, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater.
Place the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup water, and microwave for 6-8 minutes, stirring half-way through.
To make the pizza, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Generously grease a pizza pan or cookie sheet with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, mozzarella cheese and egg together and stir until well incorporated. Add the oregano, garlic, and garlic salt. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and shape into a 9-inch circle. Brush the crust with olive oil to help it brown in the oven.
Baked at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes, until the crust is browned and cooked through the middle.
Remove the crust from the oven, add your sauce and toppings. Place under a broiler at high heat until the cheese is melted and bubbly. (About 3-4 minutes).
Allow the pizza to cool slightly, then cut into small slices and serve.
*use non-stick aluminum foil and mist with oil olive to prevent crust from sticking
**from "A Happy Hippy Mom" website
Raw cauliflower is good with a dipping sauce, steamed with caraway seeds...The allicin in cauliflower is known to promote a healthy heart ...has magnesium and vitamin C, helps digestion because of the fiber. It helps inflammation as well.
Staying hydrated helps you feel less tired....

I love your vlogs and your upbeat way of getting your point across!! Yes, it is tough to completely not eat one or more things for the rest of our lives. If one can find a good alternative, more power to them. Skinny Cow ice cream is also very good. I don't like the taste of artificial flavoring, so some of those more healthy ice creams and cookies, etc., I can't stand, but the Skinny Cow is A-ok! I haven't found a good alternative to pasta yet, so I just don't cook it. I can't control my portions, so I know that I have to stay away from it. My husband doesn't care for pasta, so that's a big help too. Have a great week and I'll try to too!
