I weighed in with a decent loss today! After two weeks of not moving much, 2.2lbs down was very encouraging. I am now less than 3lbs away from the half way point to my dress (or hopefully dresses!).
The last week has been a particularly rough week with trying to keep my food consumption under control. I’ve been great at keeping to my points (save Saturday night girls night, and WOW that was good!), but I have been finding myself seeking out food for comfort once again. Trying to sneak a cookie (at least a healthy one) here, or a handful of raisins there, trying to fill that ‘hole’. Stress is not my friend, and food was. Before weight watchers, I was the kind of person that would head to a drive through when stressed. No one would know. It was my own little secret. I remember just weeks before taking this step, I argued with my husband, and while heading out to wash the van I ordered TWO sour cream glazed donuts to shove into my face to make me feel better. That’s like 14 points!
I found that working out, particularly jogging was helping me fill that gap, releasing that stress, until my knee’s started acting up. This week I need to find an outlet that will work, and save me from a slip back to stress induced binge eating.
Do you have any tips or ideas?
