Look what I got today!
I hit the 25 pound mark!
This week I lost 2.4 pounds, bringing my nine week total to 26.8 pounds.
I had an insightful week as I learned that I AM a stress eater. I never thought I ate when I was stressed, I just thought I ate all the time, regardless of my emotions. One day last week I came back to my office after a stressful meeting at work and I immediately had the desire to shove food in my mouth. Any type of food, I just wanted it.
I consciously realized that I only wanted to eat because I was stressed. I was not hungry in any way. I didn't eat at that time. I knew I didn't need to eat, I just wanted to, so I found some hidden strength in my gut and went on about my day without stress eating.
I can't say I did that well the rest of the week, but I have at least discovered my stress eating habits and am trying not to give in to those desires.
