The Truth Sucks

I guess we both have realizations that need to be turned into solid actions.

Hehe, truth stick.

I think that's why most of us are Here. Here, soothing our stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and so on, with food. It ain't easy. But tomorrow is a chance to do it better again.

Habits die hard. That's for sure. I won't even try talking about what I've eaten this week becuase it will make me cringe and then cry.

Let's just say 5 boxes of crackers have been eaten at my house in the last week and a half. And most of it wasn't by hubby and the kids!

I agree with Lynda though - tomorrow is another day and we can just do better then. That's allwe can do.

And at least we're all in the same boat together!

Hugs,
Lea

Comfort food for me is all carbs and coke. Please help. You are not the only one!

Kate Collings said...

I can't win either. I must have something saviry and then I go for something sweet. Im not setting a good example for Youngling who I must encourage to eat more fruit and veg. By answering the question 'why' we can start to address what it is that really makes us comfort eat or want these things. I need a good kick up the behind to help me along my way - self motivation is hard! Keep up the good work and keep your chin up chick xx

gah! i soooo do this! i can pump myself and anyone else up to the "enth" degree. and then as soon as i try and not eat a carb, i bake cookies and eat about 8 of them in one sitting. sigh...why don't i immediately do pushups or crunches when i'm stressed or emotional about something? strap my shoes on and "run" away from waz getting to me?
i so need to work on this, cuz life doesn't get easier and there will always be something that sets us up, or makes up feel deprived or makes us want to eat a whole cake. So, i"m with YOU!! No more!! Let's "run" out our problems with our handy training schedules and break that truth stick over our firm/taut thighs! ;D

Food as a drug.... much like drugs suddenly one cookie isn't enough for your fix.... then two... and then... it turns into something huge - because you have to be sure you're going to get your high. Been there, done that - still doing it. I've just downsized to a single Ghiradelli 60% dark chocolate square...

Yes. Yes. Yes.

They physical part of losing weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle is easy. We all know how to count and can do the basic math behind "burn more calories than you consume".

The emotional part is hard and takes much longer. The emotional part demands the sacrifice. The emotional part rips us open, spills us out on the floor and then leaves us alone with ourselves to clean up the mess.

Thank You Heavenly Father, for the blessing of friends who show up with buckets and mops.

That was weird. My post posted itself three times!

Right now, if I could have a monthly(had a partial hyst a few years ago), it would be that time of month, thus making me really want to eat everything in sight! Ah! It's so frustrating because now I'm shoving bananas and apples and pineapple down my throat. Which, only makes me want sweets, and pizza and everything else more because I didn't get satisfied with what I wanted.

I always feel like it's a never ending cycle. But, I know it isn't. And God be our strength, we will continue on in this race!

Pretty Pauline said...

Yeah. I can already see my kids emotionally eating sometimes~and not just the girls. I am thankful they are fit, but I was too at their age... Lots to think about here, thanks for that.

Love my Charlie who tells the truth.

My humble little "Today" group is getting ready to start studying Lysa TerKeurst's new book, "Made to Crave," which is all about learning to crave God more than food. How to run to God when hard times come instead of running to food.

I would be so happy to have you and any of your buddies join us. You can get the details here.

Aww. Love this post. I get it. My pacifier is Makers Mark. Not in an ALCOHOLIC way, but maybe just in kind of a LUSH way. Oy.

By the by, how are things? :)
