I have fallen off the wagon and even being run over does not seem to be able to get me out of this slump I am in. I can't seem to find any control at all as far as what I am eating. Everything is fair game and the scales are going up, up, up.........Don't get me wrong I am not looking for pity but some genuine feedback on how I can get myself under control again.
I tried setting out a meal plan for a couple of days in advance and can even follow it faithfully and then all of a sudden it's like an alter ego appears and encourages me to eat all the things I know I am not supposed to. I am an intelligent woman so why the hell is this happening?
Our TOPS Area Captain did a presentation last night on stress, she pointed out all the negative things that can happen to our bodies as a result of too much stress. It was not pretty but extremely informative. So I got to thinking about what she had presented and even practiced a few of the ideas she gave to help cope with stress and help you to relax. Did it work .... nope, nada, not a chance .......... Does that mean I have no stress or I'm too far gone to be able to get it under control.
I have no idea and at this point all I keep thinking is ...Is it worth the fight? Of course it is, I just have to find a way to put this devil on my shoulder whispering in my ear in his/her place. So if you have any suggestions at all I would welcome them. I know there are no guarantees in life but I honestly do not want to be packing this weight around for the rest of my life.
