I had a weight loss of 1.2 lb this week but as it’s over 2 weeks I didn’t see the point in jumping for joy over it. I didn’t blog last week as I had a pretty rough week with family politics and ended up emotionally eating my way through a shed load of junk. I had a massive takeout on the night before weigh in and last Monday I had put on 2 lb so didn’t bother to blog about my failure as the politics had me feel crap about myself anyway.
Anyhow this morning it said 1.2 lb loss over two weeks but if you add in lasts week’s 2 lb gain then it’s a 3.2 lb weight loss which is the brighter way to look at things.
One of my earlier blogs looks at emotional eating and the effects it can have on people. I was basically disowned by my extended family again last week, I say again as it’s pretty much a regular thing for me. I seem to get disowned as often as most other families go on holiday together, at least once or twice a year!
This time I was really upset and rather than venting my anger, I just left it and ate my way to a happier place. Then I realised that all I’m doing is making it even worse for myself in the long run. At least now I’m disowned but relatively healthy, the last thing I need is to ostracised and be the size of a small house.
All I’m saying is some people will bolster you up and support you, others will envy what you have and put you down at any opportunity. Learn to cope through the bad times without relying on the comforts of food and drink. Go and meet friends who do care about you, curl up with a good book, go shopping, be pampered at the hair dressers or spa. Just get away from the negativity but don’t end up in the chip shop!
I have the summer off work and to be honest with everything going on I’m finding the weight management a little tricky. Bear with me folks as I try to sort my life out and then my weight.
