My hope was to be under 160 by today, so I'm pleased. For those of you that may be following me recently, you'll kniw that I'm going through a difficult breakup, and that I decided it was too overwhelming to count calories and carbs. Instead, I'm trying to listen to my body and make conscious decisions about what and how much I eat. I haven't been perfect, but I'm not being hard on myself, either. For instance, one night I counted out 5 crackers. Are crackers ideal? No. But I made a concious decision, and it was good. The next night I ate with a friend and i set the package in front of me. I prob ate 10 or 15. Not so good, but I know what I did and how to prevent that in the future. Yesterday I went to breakfast with a friend and ordered a (giant) omelet. I could've eaten the whole thing, but I cut it into thirds, ate one section, and brought the rest home. One thing that has helped tremendously is that I've been listening to a sermon series by Joyce Meyer on the battlefield of the mind. I highly recommend it. Here's to good eating this week. :)

I've had an emotional weekend as I'm letting go of a relationship that I thought had a great future. Sadly, I can't keep someone from sabataging the happiness of both of us. Now I have to focus on taking care of myself and moving forward.

I've decided to approach this weight loss a bit differently. Previously I tracked everything I put in my mouth. But I tend to look for a distraction in times of stress, then when the stress is gone I no longer need a distraction. I don't want to create a distraction of calorie counting, only to drop it. I'm also a bit emotionally fragile at the moment, and I don't need the burden of failure when I eat a meal that is difficult to track. So I'm going to practice listening to myself and my body. When I reached my goal previously, I was able to maintain my weight within 5 lbs for quite sometime without calorie counting or weighing daily. I started this weekend, and I'm down 4.5 lbs. I do know that is mostly water, but I retain a lot of fluid when I make bad food choices, so even losing water weight is a victory.

My plan is to make good food choices, eat a little less of it, and only weigh once a week. I'm also walking several times a week as an antidepressant. Here's hoping for better physical and emotional health.
