Healthy You Challenge - Week 12 Check In

Here are some highlights from the past week:

1. I stayed on track with my eating.

2. I exercised several days, but I wish I had done more.

3. Emotionally, it's been a rough week. I'm dealing with some stress, and on several occasions I felt like surrendering to the urge to numb my feelings with food. I wanted to eat and forget about everything else that I was dealing with. But I didn't. I recognized what was going on... and I realized that eating was not the answer.

When I feel stressed, the stress sometimes leads to feelings of depression. I have been down in the dumps the past few days. And one of the things that I feel depressed about is how fat I am. So why would I think that eating would make me feel better... when in fact it will just make me fatter... which in turn will just make me feel more depressed?

It's something I've had to deal with my entire life. And it's not fun. I wish I could snap my fingers together and be instantly thin and stress-free. But I can't. So I'm learning to deal with my issues and only turn to food when my body needs nourishment. This is not always easy.

4. Tomorrow is my weigh-in day, and I'll be checking in at this week's Fourth of July Challenge post. (If you're a member... don't forget to check in this week. If you're not a member... you can still join because there's no cut-off date.)

5. I am sick and tired of being fat. I am sick and tired of my obesity prohibiting me from doing the things that I want to do. Period.

(Sorry this post is not real uplifting and encouraging. I really just needed to vent. Thanks for bearing with me.)
