I am a stress eater and my achilles heel is sweet & salty. I am carb sensitive and a closet carb addict. I do have trigger foods. At one point I would cut down my Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks, so I could eat nothing but 8 servings of Honey/Toffee almonds and peanuts for dinner! This led to binge eating, an unbalanced diet, and cravings for nothing but "crunchy foods/sweet foods" all day instead of a well balanced eating plan.

The key to my weight loss journey now is a complete overhaul and lifestyle change. I accept the fact that I will always be on a "diet" and that is NOT a bad thing.

*Special Note*
I must always keep my Total Calories = Protein/Carbs/Fats @ a proper balance in order to lose or maintain my weight. I don't need to kill myself by burning out on exercise to lose or maintain my weight. Moderate exercise and Just eat right!

No matter how I rationalize it, there is no excuse eating CEREAL ALL DAY just because - It's my daily recommend calorie intakes worth and so I wont gain. It's not healthy, and that's not how I should be spending a day's worth of calories. NO EXCUSE TO BE AN ASS!

Peak Weight: 2001 -193lbs: Size 16
Athletic Weight: 2010-2011 - 143lbs: Size 4 = Over training to compensate for overeating/so I could eat more food. No carbs & little food variety. I looked great, but this was definitely the wrong way to keep the weight off.

    "You don't want to live with the regret later"

    I can't tell you how often I used to eat something bad for me, and then agonize over how I shouldn't have eaten that! I mean, I NEVER feel guilty for eating fruits, veggies, lean means, healthy carbs, etc., but whenever I binge on the foods I KNOW are bad, I always feel guilty. And it is NOT WORTH IT. Not worth the guilt and shame and knowing that I am not being healthy. Just saying "NO" and not letting myself get into those debates will keep me HEALTHY and happy and guiltless! :)

    "I find that I had to stop validating why I "deserve it" or why "I can have it now...look at me, I'm getting healthy, I'm in control"."

    OMG!! LOVE THIS!! This weekend, I was tormented with so many of my tempting, trigger foods - macroons, apple bread, bread in general - and one thing that I realized was that my thoughts were that eating it would make me happy. NO IT WON'T!! I am an addict; a small bite of that may not lead into a binge today, but it could tomorrow! And I have come WAY too far to give up now.

    And like you said, I don't "deserve" this yummy treat - I deserve good health!!

    Am checking out your blog right now!!
