Most Difficult Blog Yet....

My last weigh in went so incredibly well. I weighed 170.8. I just KNEW that the 160's were RIGHT around the corner. And they were. But something happened. And I hate like hell to have to write about it and tell everyone. But that was the whole idea of this blog. When I get to goal and become a leader, I want everyone that is trying to lose weight to understand that if we fall, we must pick ourselves up, and go at it again. Well....I fell. I fell HARD! I am a stress eater, no doubt. I have written a bit about that. I am still learning how to deal with stress in a healthier way, but the facts are, we all have our setbacks, and we don't always handle the stress in the healthiest way. I have binged several days in the last week or so. I will admit that nowadays, my binge is on three servings of strawberries and an overload of trailmix, but none the less, a binge is a binge is a binge. And overeating even the healthiest of foods, is not good for anyone. Everything in moderation. I went to weigh in on Friday, and took the "no weigh in" pass. I just didn't want to face the number on the scale. I thought for sure that the weekend would get me back on track. It didn't. I didn't. I couldn't sleep at all last night thinking about how dissappointed I was in myself and how long it was now going to take me to see the 160's.

After a long talk with myself this morning, I know the right thing to do. Stop beating myself up, and get back at it. So that is what I am going to do. I will blog at the end of today with an update. My plan for the day is to eat the minimum that I am allowed, drink extra water, and have an awesome workout at the gym.

I think I gained FOUR pounds!!!

Irritated as heck, but facing it!
