Work in Progress... As Always

UPDATE 1/4/2014
It seems to be my trend to have to continue this process of losing and then gaining it back - almost back to my starting weight. 2014, here I come. My new goals are to conquer my emotional eating once and for all, and to have more FUN this year!

UPDATE 2/6/2013:
After my mother's very sudden passing nearly 2 years ago, my struggle with grief sent me right back into an emotional eating spiral. My lowest weight of 135 skyrocketed until I found myself over 170, nearly back at my highest. I am ready to get back to my healthy habits again. I never reached my ultimate goal of 130, and I think 2013 is my year. :) Here's to new beginnings and new happiness!

------------------
Story of my life: I've always been working on my weight and learning to love my body. I've already lost almost 30 pounds with sparkpeople's help, and I've been maintaining successfully for over a year now. However, with the routine comes a certain degree of boredom, loss of motivation, and return to old habits. I am realizing that it's not just about changing behaviors; that you have to address the real problem behind the behavior. So now I am about focusing on me: loving myself more, making time for myself, and developing healthy beliefs and activities that keep me from being bored and depressed. I will forgive myself more and love myself more, and work on getting to a healthy state of mind AND body.

I think making some mini-goals may help me be more careful this time about how I do this. I tend to get obsessive over diets, which is why I need to make sure I do this in a healthy, moderate way. In fact, I am giving up the word "dieting." A while back I became so obsessed that I couldn't get things in perspective and I began eating far too few calories. I was miserable, and it's taken me a long time to get back to feeling good again. In the meantime I've gained some of my weight back, but this time I want to focus more on the healthy aspects of recharging my lifestyle. So now I've focused on more whole foods in my diet and eating smaller portions more frequently. I feel much healthier that way and know it's much better for my body.

If I keep to my guidelines I will give myself a small reward each week, and every two weeks I will treat myself to a massage. I will re-assess the goals each month and make sure that I'm not becoming obsessed. If I start losing more than a pound a week I WILL increase my calories, and I will NEVER go below 1200 calories/day. This way I will keep my body and mind healthy while I strive for a healthier lifestyle.
