Weight GAIN Update

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.... or so I've heard.

I haven't posted one of these in awhile, so I thought I would update everyone. I have gained about 9 lbs. back. It's amazing how life can just throw you for a loop when you have been cruising along. Eating is a deeply emotional thing. At a time in my life when I was disappointed and angry, I allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted. Even though the anger went away after a week or so, the disappointment remained and so did the bad eating habits that came back with a vengeance. Anger is such an ungodly thing. It caused me to slow down/stop my weight loss and instead start packing the pounds back on.

I decided that June 1st would be a good day to jump back on the wagon and start fresh. So far today, I'm doing great. Ha ha. ( I wrote that at 8 am). I am trying to get back into drinking my water and staying away from sugar. There is no Diet Coke in the house (just coincidence, I'd be drinking it if there were).

I enjoyed eating a brownie and sipping diet coke while reading this. Oh-I think the dryer just buzzed.

Girl, I am now starting to understand how eating can be an emotional thing. Since I quit smoking, whenever I feel stressed or something, I go have some junk food and I have gained 10 pounds so far! I know that I needed to gain some weight but I hear from other people all the time saying that 10 can so easily turn into 50....I find myself trying to watch my eating habits for the first time in my life and it's hard!!!! I love food!

I will pray for you! Love ya!
