Emotional Eating and Goal Resetting
Wednesday, January 02, 2008
Gonna try to post here more :). Seems like a thing to do.
I reset my goals - I am a bit up today but I'm pretty sure within a few days I'll settle back down to what I weighed yesterday so I'm not changing my tracker :P. I'm going to try to shoot for 7 lbs per month instead of 5 so I can get to my goal of 170 by the end of June. I've been able to do that the last few months so hopefully it won't be too much to ask of myself, and I can always reset it back. It's not like I'll be upset if it takes a little longer, it's just awesome to think that I could do it earlier!
I'm supposed to blog about emotional eating - I don't think I really have a problem with it anymore. I now realize that the answer to a bad day isn't mozzerella cheese sticks and a burger and fries (that just makes me feel worse), and since I have to track everything I'm much better at bored eating and mouth hungry eating. I do have to say though that I did have an issue with my parents here when I wasn't smoking at all for days, I did tend to overeat a little if I got stressed. So as counter-intuitive as it sounds, I'm not going to try to quit smoking yet, just cut down as much as possible (most days I'm at less than a quarter pack anyway) until I get to a point where I would be comfortable gaining a bit of weight if it happened. So not yet.
That's all I can think of for now. Can't wait to go home and get my exercise in...less than 30 mins to go!
