Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

I'm sick, and i'm mad at my boyfriend and we had ANOTHER snow day so I've been moping around my house eating random food if eat the really light dinner I was planning on eating and if I ate the really yummy breakfast I was going to have instead of some random pizza I would have ended the day within my calorie limit but today I'll end about 60 calories over, which totally could have been avoided without a 1/4 cup of soy creamy chocolate cherry soy icecream or the mini shriley temple I made myself. I could have easily not eaten it even with all the crap I ate earlier in the day like pizza and rice for breakfast ( I eat random stuff when im upset) and had what would have been a very low calorie and nutrious smoothie for breakfast oh well 60 calories over is really not that bad but I let my emotions get in the way of my real goal. I might hop on my stationary bike for like 15-20 minutes and go easy. A little excersize is better than none right? Atleast then I might break even on my calorie goal for the day on myfitnesspal. I think I remember somebody posting a week or two ago that when they caught themself emotional eating they were going to write down what they were feeling that made them want to eat extra so I might try that. But that soy icecream is so good I almost wish I hadn't gotten it because it tastes better than normal icecream and I want it all the time now.. and its not any better for you than normal icecream in the slightest. oh well I'm down to 162.6 14 pounds gone in 21 days if I can get to 160.0 at the end of this month I will be so stoked!

But on a more important note, How do you guys deal with emotional eating?

How do I deal with emotional eating .... well I eat.

I'm pushing 50 (sshhh) and I haven't figured out the emotional eating thus far.  If I had I might not be needing to loose 60ish #s today.  If you crack the code on that one, let me know.

I deal with emotional eating by being frightened of food. Lol. Seriously though, is another form of emotional eating. I guess you could say I under indulge. I deal with it by forcing myself to eat and then watch my body and emotions don't get out of control. I used to emotional over indulge a lot. I never was able to deal with that. I think the food journal is an excellent idea. I journal a lot of things in many different places and have found a great deal of help with that. Write down why you're upset, but also what it caused you to eat compared to what you would normally eat. I hope your day goes better tomorrow. We all have these sorts of days, don't dwell on it!

One thing I try to keep in mind is junk food is junk food even if it is vegan. Keeping it out of my house has resulted in me keeping it out of my mouth! : )   As for the 60 calories? I don't think it will hurt your progress. I think it takes 3500 extra calories to gain a pound and you're far from that!!

thanks everyone and Paula after I posted I did go on the bike and I had an extra 200 calories left over but then I kept eating and finished the day worse than I was before!! oh well today will be better. 

And Melissa I'll be sure to do just that. Thanks everyone
