May 1st Weigh-In

No time for a real post today, but here's today's weigh-in:

Last weigh-in: 167.8
Today: 165.8
Change: -2.0 pounds
Total Loss: -115.2 pounds

Let's be real: This number could be much better, but I've written before about how I struggle with emotional eating, especially stress eating, and this past week has been particularly stressful. I had quite a few days where my mind was completely pre-occupied with food the entire time and I literally spent the whole day thinking about eating. I don't have time to go into the details about it right now, but I'll probably write a post about it once finals are over because I think it's something that a lot of people can relate to.

The fact of the matter is that I am going to have bad days, and I have learned to just accept that and really take advantage of all of the good days I have. Just like a few days of healthy eating is not going to make me drop 50 pounds, a few days of crappy eating is not going to make me gain 50 pounds. The two things that I focus on to not let things get out of control are 1) don't let those bad days turn into bad weeks and 2) keep hitting the gym! Working out always makes me feel better about myself and motivates me to do well, no matter what I've eaten.

Alright, that's all for now! Time to get back to the books...

Is it Thursday afternoon yet??
