When I first heard the term "emotional eating," I thought Pfft! That's the lamest excuse that I've ever heard! Yet here I am, CRAVING pizza when I'm feeling down in the dumps, completely unsatisfied by healthy food choices no matter how full I am and unable to think of anything else until eventually I throw in the towel and dial up Domino's, usually fighting back the tears.
Here's how it's been going down:
Previous weigh-in (6/30/14, before staycation): 169.6 lbs
Weigh-in (7/7/14, after shit went down): 178.0 lbs
Change in weight: +8.4 lbs
We ordered pizza the night before I weighed in.
...And two or three other times that week.
And one day I had ice cream for lunch, straight from the carton.
^ So guilty :-\
I did get back on track "starting Monday," though.
Weigh-in (7/14/14): 172.8 lbs
Change in weight: -5.2 lbs
My focus last week was just to plan and track, as I still did not have the
energy desire to work out... Baby steps? And that brings us to
Today's weigh-in (7/21/14): 169.8 lbs
Change in weight: -3.0 lbs
Total change in weight: -12.0 lbs

Just 3.0 lbs away from my first goal (-15 lbs)!
Game plan for next week
Plan, track, exercise.
