My Diary

I've realized it for a long time but I didn't know what to do about it, I eat when I'm stressed.  I just go whole hog and forget about the type and amount of food I eat.  There, now it's out there and everyone knows my problem.

So, I'll tell you what started this journey, I gained the Covid 15.  That put it over the top. Yep, I started gaining just after Covid started.  Thank goodness I've lost 6 of those crazy pounds so far. What finally has clicked?  Tracking my calories on My Fitness Pal.  I'm a very slow loser but I did lose 6 pounds the first month.

Then the remodel began and boom!  I was proud of myself and that at least I did not gain those pounds back but I certainly didn't keep track of my calories as well.  There was improvement though, the thoughts of what I'm eating though never left me this time and I didn't go totally berserk.  

I'm feeling like I'm back on track and yesterday I did well again.  With most of the work done in the living room, I feel like my life is back in order somewhat.  I can do this!  

Now you know my struggle ..Now I have to go get Tim Horton donuts for the kids (I don't want any thank goodness)!

How's everything going in your neck of the woods?

Congratulation on losing 6 pounds. I've lost a few pound's since November and hope I can keep it up as well.

Chocolate creamed filled long johns topped with chocolate icing. No one sells them around here.:(

Kathy said...

Great job on the weight loss!!
I need to lose about 10 pounds, but it is harder than I expected it to be. My dr is not going to be pleased with me, he is sort of like House but not quite as obnoxious. Maybe with the warmer weather, I can do more walks and grill more chicken...

I've always lost weight tracking my calories but goodness it is so much work. I'm a comfort eater....eating for comfort. I guess that's the same as a stress eater. I don't think I'll ever be able to just eat without thinking AND maintain or lose weight.

It's tough but we can do this!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Your so lucky Chef! Those wonderful chocolate cremesticks are sold everywhere here.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

It's just beautiful today here! Getting out and walking would help us both..wish 10 pounds was all I need to lose!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

No me either..I like that you just put in what you eat at hydrothermal and they figure it out for you.

Yours is my story too Vickie. It's been a long year with too much eating the wrong things. I do well for a while, then feel sorry for myself and start eating in-between meals. Chocolate chips, cereal, crackers, anything and everything. Today I did walk for a hour-it was almost 50 here and sunny. Felt good to be moving outside. I don't want to beat myself up too much-this has been a stressful year and I just want to be kind to myself and others!
