Well, our two month family seeing vacation is over and I “found” more pounds.
I got to hug and kiss on DD, oldest DS and g-kids that are out of state … and mom.
Oldest DS and I had a conversation and then I think he had a come to Jesus meeting with mom … if she wanted to see us, she needed to SEE us. See that I had lost weight due to changing my eating habits. See that when I spoke … I wanted to be heard.
Before we left … mom gave me a beautiful porcelain travel tea mug. I was … seen.
I also saw myself … eating out of old habits with stinkin’ thinkin’. For those who shared on my blogs … to go with the flow, being a little loose on my losing program wouldn’t make that big of a difference … YES it does. I have gained 25 pounds since August:
I stopped exercising … +10
I was sick with bronchitis and pneumonia … +5
I went with the flow at moms’ … +10
Our SIL is an alcoholic. We have had many, many conversations about how he personally will never touch alcohol again coz he has NO boundaries.
While I don’t want to live without my favorite foods forever… my favorite food list keeps changing. AND then there are some items that stopping when physically full just doesn’t seem to know their boundaries.
Separating eating foods I enjoy eating and eating due to emotional habit … now that’s been the tough part. This lesson is … well … hard for me.
And once I start eating trigger foods due to emotions … well, it’s … Katie bar the door. I don’t seem to have any boundaries. I have seen the light. Get back on track. Stay there.
*Read my reasons for chunking alllll these pounds. Why did you start allll this??
*Planned and ate s-l-o-w-l-y and mindfully … huh, who ME???
*Stop when you are physically full … what is full. My full meter is broken.
*Exercise … Arrrrgh, I gotta get moving again.
*Not my food. Oh, well kiddo!
My arms won’t look smaller … just coz I cover them up. ~Kenlie@alltheweigh
Here’s to … LIFE … uncovered.
