Everything's New and I'm Stressed!

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Can the lunch lady lose weight? I'm such an emotional eater that I'm finding it hard to cope with all the changes in our work routine. What do I do? I had the requisite good breakfast and wasn't doing too bad during our food prep. Today's menu: Corn Dogs or Ravioli as the entree with peas and applesauce for sides. The peas are always an easy to resist item for me (aren't they for most people?)but when I'm hungry or even a little stressed the ravioli will do me in. I will say that I had only a proper serving and wasn't overboard - but isn't this how I got to be overweight to begin with? I think that this weekend will be instrumental in getting myself organized with my own meals - not eating "kid stuff". I will do this. I am worth it.

    You can do this. Bring your own healthy lunch instead of eating the food at school. Have faith you can do this!

    I am an emotional eater also, so I know how you feel.
    Just know that these changes you make will help you live a much
    longer and healthier life. You are worth whatever effort it takes to
    get thru this. I would say fix you some snacks and take them with
    you then the ravioli won't be calling your name.

    You are worth it! I have to remind myself everyday!! I wish you luck and just take it one day at a time. Try foods that you enjoy and that are also healthy. Fruit helps control my hunger and sweet tooth, and I also enjoy the chocolate fiber one bars.

    You're awesome! Have a plan for yourself. You don't need to eat the lunch menu because you can bring your own food or eat the lunch menu but be conscious of serving sizes. You can do it...I know you can!
