Weight Loss Update Week 2
I had my appointment today at the weight loss clinic. I lost 5.5 lbs this week for a total of 12 pounds in two weeks on the diet! I am 17 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight, though this squishy belly sure doesn't feel like it.

I'm SO excited, but I am also really nervous because I got my psychological/emotional profile back and it basically calls me out on all of the bad habits and feelings that I have regarding myself and food. It's one thing to know in the back of my mind, but to read things in print is tough. I think one of the hardest things for me to overcome is going to be stress eating and emotional eating - eating to celebrate, to fill a void, to relax from stress, blah blah. I KNOW I do it, but to see it written that "because you eat when you are upset, you tend to eat very little in front of people and a lot when you are alone" is like being caught. I do eat when I'm alone - after the kids are napping during the afternoon is my WORST time of day. I am starving b/c I probably haven't had a chance to fix lunch and then it's 1:30 and I haven't eaten since breakfast, I am stressed and ready to relax, and do what I want...and often that is to fix myself something tasty to eat for lunch/snacks.

So I hope to become more in tune with these subconscious reactions that lead me to binge on bad food and redirect myself in a more positive way:)

Look at you go! You must be THRILLED!

I know it's tough with the emotional eating. I can remember seeing a poster that has stuck with me recently - if hunger isn't the problem, then eating isn't the solution.

Keep us posted! I'm happy for you!

WTG Emily!!! Thats awesome how well you are doing! It does stink that you have to hear all the reasons you eat but sometimes it is good to hear so you can actually call yourself out when you start to do it.
