{2011 Weigh In: Week 6}

All I can say is *UGH*! I have been stressed out lately (no excuse) but have been emotionally eating all the wrong foods and it shows as I gained all of what I have lost starting in January and even gained back some of what I lost last year - can you say *UGH* with me....

I really need to get this emotional eating under control and I need to keep reminding myself that food is not a comfort but something to help keep me living and not something I need to be over doing in any way!

I have been working on exercising and trying to work myself up to 6 days during the week (Sunday's off) and I am getting close but still not there yet. It's a work in progress and I am working on it one day at a time - same with my emotional eating. Some days I am doing great and other days I just fall flat on my face and it hurts bad when I smack my nose on the pavement and I feel like a huge failure.

(really how am I supposed to be wonder "Mom" if I keep gaining weight and my costume won't fit)

Well below is my weight gain and it's so very frustrating for me...not only did I gain back the 7 lbs I lost this month but added another 6 on top of that...*sigh*

Week 3 weigh in: 275.5 pounds

Week 4 weigh in: 273.5 pounds

Week 5 weigh in: 273.5 pounds

Week 6 weigh in: 286.5 pounds

total weight loss/gain: + 6 pounds from week 1 (+13 lbs gained this week)

I know some of this is because I have been extremely bloated and gassy lately (too much info, I know, but it's true), so I am hoping that when it gets gone some of that weight will be gone because that's alot of weight to pack back on in only a week. *sigh*


  1. Ugh!!! There ya go. Sorry you've had a frustrating week! I feel for you. We have a severely autistic little boy who just started in our class who's only way of comforting himself is eating. He's always getting his lunchbox down and snacking. He's not overweight now, but I can see how it could totally get out of control for him. So, at least you know what you need to do, and what your eating habits are, that puts you ahead of the game! Keep hanging in there!

  2. I feel you with the emotional/stressed out eating. It is REALLY HARD to manage that - and the worst part is it's hard to come across long periods of unstressful times!!! Keep on keeping it real - that is what makes it a pleasure to read your blog.
