Getting back on track for the last few weeks of mindless eating, wild abandon for anything that was made out of ice cream or potatoes…was interesting to say the least.
I did a wee bit better with the not snacking because I’m bored/stressed/thirsty. I pulled a trick from my old playbook.
Drink some water, change up my tasks, take a second to stop…. am I still wanting something to eat? No? Well, whouda thought?
That’s the biggest problem with me and food.
I don’t really know how to describe it except that sometimes I mistake those little things as being hungry?
I know I don’t have the best relationship with food. Especially junk food. I’m a comfort eater. If I’m bored, I’ll go to the fridge. If I’m stressed, I want high carb kinda foods.
And we can all agree that I am stuck between some weird limbo of “always stressed or always bored.” There isn’t a middle ground for me.
So this last 10-ish days, I’ve really tried getting back on track with that.
Of course this wasn’t 100%. There is no way it could be 100%, I’m just not built like that. I’d love to just wake up one morning and be like “oh hey, this is easy!” But it’s not. So I chip away at it. And yeah, there were still some mindless moments of eating. I definitely didn’t hit any water goals. And my intake was all over the place.
But mentally, it helped. That focus I’d lost for those several weeks did have their shining moments where it was almost like my body remembered and was like “hold the ropes, lady, something’s off” and other moments where it was just “yeah, you have yogurt in the fridge, but you know what you really want? Cornbread.”
But it definitely helped.

Yeah, yeah… It’s not even a pound. But it’s half a pound. And, it’s moving forward, which I’m not complaining about one little bit.
