Hey guys! I have loved reading about your stories and situations. This is fun isn't it and thanks for the kudos and support. My goal weight is actually somewhere between 140 and 150. I'm 5'8" and I feel this is reasonable, considering I weighed 125 when I got married! lol
So this morning, I dragged myself out of bed, forced myself to put on workout clothes and did my half hour of Latin dancing. I feel dead today and it took a mountain of effort to do it but I knew if I didn't, I'd feel guilty all day. which would make me eat to feel better, which in turn would make be feel guilty again and then I'd feel even worse. I hate that cycle so I went to work.
Since I last weighed myself (and I know scales cannot be relied upon as muscle weighs more then fat) and I have GAINED two pounds. Oh the horror! It did depress me and I was tempted to get out the ice cream I have for my son's birthday, but I refrained. I mean, the weight gain could be muscle, couldn't it? I couldn't possibly be the Mexican food we went out for last night or the Chinese food we had on family night or any of the other crap I eat that makes me happy!
This is my problem. I'm an emotional eater and I don't know how to change that. Any ideas?
