I eat when I am bored, I eat when I am tired, I eat when I am frustrated. I am constantly eating for reasons other than hunger. How do I stop? It's like it just slips under my radar and next thing I know, I have polished off a whole pie, or cookies or bag of potato chips.
We all need encouragement! Some of us are trying to check in with each other at least on Sundays...Please feel free to join us! How it works: On the "How was your day?" section--Write the caption: "Check In Sunday". Then we write how our week went, what our goals are for the following week, how we are feeling etc. Hope to see you there!🌸
I checked Taffy. I love checking in. I’m 157 today. How are you doing Taffy?

I am having a hard time just finding the energy and motivation to even start anything. I know what I need to do, i make the plan to do it but then just can't bring myself to get moving. It's like I talk myself out of it before I even get started.
Put your music on every morning.
My husband always tells me that I look great and that he loves me no matter what. Tough problem, right? :-) But I don't feel great. I felt great when I was 40 lbs lighter. I accept what he says and let it sway me to act in a way that is not in my best interests - going out to eat, eating what I know I shouldn't, drinking, not exercising.

Just joined in hope of some support and good information. Is there anywhere on this site that provides nutrition information? Like a suggested healthy meal planner or something?
