Stress Eating

I am having a very stressful day so far today and all I want to do is eat some yummy carbohydrate comfort food!  I am trying to hang tuff…weigh in coming soon!!!

I recently read another contestants blog and she was saying that Monday thru Friday it was much easier to stay on track by eating right and making to the gym, but that it all kind of fell apart on the weekends.  Then she spends time during the week trying to undo what she did all weekend.  I have to say that I totally agree with that.  Weekends are the most difficult for me as well.  I make some decent progress throughout each week and then fall apart over the weekend.  It is a vicious cycle and even after all these months of trying during this contest I still cannot get control over it.  I will be lucky once again to break even at the next weigh in!

Trying to stay on track

I have tried to get back on track with losing weight.  Last week was my birthday and I blew it with a few too many “celebrations” with various family and friends.  It’s funny how social food can be!  Anyway, I had actually once again put back on some of the weight that I had managed to take off for the last weigh in.  However today I am happy to report that according to my scale here at home that I am down 2 lbs from my last weight on record. I hope to keep it off and add to as the rest of this month goes by!
