One of the reasons I was so excited about starting this forum was the desire to have a group of woman I could be really honest and real with.
So here goes......
Pc and I join WW tonight and I am running scared. Not scared because I am going to be weighed, but because I know my life is going to change. I think I have found some solace in food over the last four years. I never, ever would have classified myself as an emotional eater.
I just plain liked food. I have dealt with weight issues since I was in high school - back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
But when I sat down this weekend and had an honest look at where I had been and where I was going, I realized that food was there when I was lonely, angry, stressed, happy, etc... The emotions centered around the "kitchen table".
So now I realize that I cannot satisfy an emotion with a slice of pizza. So what will I do instead?
Well I am hoping that movement will be apart of it. I'm hoping that the dreaded E word will help.
I hope that my desire to become a healthier me remains uppermost in mind 24/7.
I hope that this enables me to enjoy more the things I have not allowed my weight to take away.
I hope this enables me to do more with my children.
That is one of the reasons I don't look at my weight loss as a resolution but rather a goal. I'm working towards it, I'm working towards it.....
So, I really begin tonight (although I have made some changes over the last week).
Wish me luck.
