Bored and eating...

Sep 20, 2011

4 years out and I am struggling today with boredom eating. Yikes! I thought I really learned how to control this but let this be a great lesson that sometimes we think we have a handle on things but in reality we really do not. I am not hungry but I am finding myself with WAY too much time on my hands. Time to eat. I am at work and it’s SLOW so all I can do is think about eating. I joined nutrisystem a couple of weeks ago with my hubby to get back on track and really to support him. I have lost about 4.6 pounds and he has lost about 6. It’s a pretty good diet and it teaches you stuff of course I already know. Make good food choices, eat lots of fruits and veggies etc etc. Anyway, for someone who has had gastric bypass surgery it’s even better because the portion sizes are just perfect. My hubby and I thought it might be a good thing for us to do together. Something positive and healthy we could do together. He has about 30 to 40 pounds to lose. I would like to lose about 10 more. I think no matter what weight I get down to, I’ll always think “10 more pounds.” If I don’t think like this, then something must be wrong with me right? LOL I would LOVE to get back down to my lowest weight of all time- 150 I have about 8 more to go. I keep telling myself and writing, you will see if you read my blog that I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. 4 years out, only weigh 8 more pounds then my absolute lowest AND I had a baby! So, yea doing pretty damn good but for some reason I just cant get to that “content” place I always long for. Sure, big deal I do 8 to 12 miles every Saturday, and walk/run half marathons but still… not good enough Jaime.
